I started showing Cavalier King Charles Spaniels in 1982 under the Marisk affix. It wasn’t until 1989 I got my first Griffon, a breed I had loved for many years. This was the start of the Gilderoak affix.  I have gained much success over the years.  My dogs have been lightly shown with staying in Scotland.  I have made up two Champions and have won CCs and Reserve CC’s with other Gilderoaks.

Champion Gilderoak Willow was the first Smooth Bitch Champion bred in Scotland.  I have awarded CCs in Griffon Bruxellois since 1999 and Cavaliers since 2003.  Griffon Bruxellois  I have awarded CC’s on 9 occasions with the pinnacle of my career judging them at Crufts this year.  I have judged Cavaliers in America and Griffons on two occasions in the Czech Republic.  I am looking forward to travelling to Finland and thank the Committee for the invitation.
