Glenn Gregory (NSW)  CV dated Sep 2009

My first involvement in dogs came when I purchased a Border Collie bitch (1981). She was trialled successfully, with numerous wins to her credit. I have trialled to UD level and instructed in obedience.

This led to the show ring. Here with Kim, I have successfully shown GSD's, Border Collies and a Belgian Shepherd.
I gained my Group 5 Judging License in 1995 and gained the GSDCA Specialist Judges License. I have judged in several States of Australia and in New Zealand, as well as the NSW & Queensland State Breed Evaluations.

Frikkie Van Kraayenburg (South Africa)  CV dated September 2008

I started breeding German Shepherd Dogs in 1979 under our kennel prefix Grehenheim. The kennel has subsequently grown to one of the most successful in South Africa. The breeding policy is modelled on the most successful (possibly the only successful) system in the world, namely the German system as run by the Deutsche Schäferhund Verein (SV). In order to remain up to date with new developments, regular trips to Germany are undertaken.
The kennel, in partnership with my wife Sonia, became the first kennel to be awarded the Breeders' Gold and Breeders’ Platinum medals and is currently the only holder of the Breeders' Diamond Award. The kennel has won the National Kennel Group 11 times out of 14 competitions, 10 of which were consecutive.

The kennel has bred seven VA’s and has often exhibited dogs at the German Sieger Show.
I was made Founder member of the German Shepherd Dog Federation of South Africa in 1984. I was elected to the executive of the German Shepherd Dog Federation of South Africa in 1990 as National Administrator and became President in February 2000 a position which I currently hold. I have been active in dog-training clubs since 1983.

Jenny Yuen (Victoria)  CV dated September 2007

A Primary School Teacher at the time, Jenny first became involved with the German Shepherd Breed in 1973 when she swapped a calf for a bitch puppy. She became a member of the Victorian Kennel Control in 1974, dabbling in the all-breeds ring before joining the German Shepherd Dog Club of Victoria in 1977. Dogs have since taken over her life, both as a hobby and as a business, having been the proprietor of a large Boarding Kennel and Cattery for 15 years.
Her first serious involvement with the breed/show scene began with the purchase of the well-known Ingo son Aust Ch Bratara Sultan Cl.1 Excellent in 1979. It was love at first sight and Jenny and husband Dennis were hooked! The following few years saw them campaigning Sultan's progeny, then Aust Ch Rintilloch Rouge (Imp UK) Cl.1 Excellent, Aust Ch Erntemond Gold Lancer Cl.11 Excellent and Grando vom Trabersruh (Imp Gmy) Cl.1 'a' Excellent.
In 1990 Jenny and Dennis purchased of several "girls", the most notable being Aust Ch Hagenstolz Draw Card Cl.1 'A' 'Z', Dual Gold Medallist and Siegerin (better known as Whoopi) and Aust Ch Pallendon Wyldfire Cl.1 'A' 'Z' Excellent Select (owned in partnership with D Ballantyne, Qld.)
She breeds very sparingly under the prefix Djenuen (pronounced genuine), with Aust Ch Djenuen Gin Rummy Cl.1 'A' 'Z' Excellent Select being a highlight.
By Jenny's admission, she has always been a sucker for a lovely male, so it was only a matter of time before another one adorned her couch. He came in the form of the now legendary Aust Ch Iwan vom Lechtal (Imp Gmy) Cl.1 'a' 'Z' H-Neg, National Gold Medallist and Australian Sieger (owned in partnership with Rogers, Humphreys and Haase).
Following the upset of Iwan's death in 2002 she and Dennis tried to 'step back' a little. In spite of this Jenny's interest and involvement continued through her Judging, Surveying and attendance at all major shows. With the memory of Iwan ever present Jenny and Dennis fell in love with the lovely and most typical Iwan daughter Iccara Vegas Showoff Cl.1 'A' 'Z' ('Venus') purchasing her just prior to the 2004 National at which she became Gold medallist. Venus rekindled Jenny's enjoyment of exhibiting resulting in numerous successes, the Aust Ch. title and just recently achieving the highest award, an Excellent Select and the 2007 Australian Siegerin title.
Jenny's club involvement includes at least 20 years service at the Victorian Club in one capacity or another; as a Show Instructor, Breed Liaison Officer for the Specialist Show Branch, Branch Manager, Assistant Breed Affairs Administrator and currently the Victorian Breed Affairs Administrator.
She received her Championship Judges Licence in 1991 and her Breed Surveyors Ticket in 2001 and has since judged in most States of Australia and New Zealand.

Fran Farley (Victoria)  CV dated September 2006

As a daughter of an all Breeds judge, who specialised in working dogs, an interest in handling, not only in the show ring but training and trialling dogs, grew in early childhood years.
"Baccara" German Shepherd kennels commenced in early 1967 and produced many Excellent graded and Breed Surveyed animals, including the renowned "Icecapade" and later, two Excellent Select animals, Ch Baccara Red Beret and Ch Baccara Blue Curacao, her dam Sterling Idea being the dam of Excellent Select Djenuen Gin Rummy.
Owner of Ch Iniff Vagrant - a son of Red Beret, "Tramp" won the Gold medal in 1992 and was Sieger in 1993. He went on to gain his CDX and TD titles, after retirement from the show ring. I am currently aiming for UD with Baccara Sterling Bead Cl1 'A''Z' CDX. To date, she has gained Excellent gradings in obedience and won the Bronze medal from Novice at the 2004 National.

Whilst not breeding anymore, recent show ring adventures have included exhibiting and having lots of fun with the two greys "Rogue" and "Risky Business" from Eisenland Kennels and the young bitch "Xtacy".
I gained my full Championship Specialist judges license in 1977 and have judged on numerous occasions in all states of Australia, including Main Breed show level. Overseas appointments include both islands of New Zealand, Malaysia and India. I have been a Breed surveyor since the inception of the National scheme in Australia and visit the Sieger show as often as possible to keep abreast of the scene in Germany.
Whilst I know I will thoroughly enjoy this weekend, I do hope that all exhibitors, will not only enjoy the company of fellow breed enthusiasts, but the pleasure our canine friends bring to us each and every day.
