Breeding & showing


As a child I was surrounded by dogs as my parents have been breeding Hungarian Puli since 1973. However, I did not maintain the family tradition in breeding Hungarian Puli and I purchased my first Airedale Terrier in the middle of the1980’s, a breed I admired whenever I caught sight of them at the dog shows of the 80’s. Thus, in 1988 I founded my own kennel under the name of “Nyaradmenti” and later I changed to “Happytails1988.ro”. As years passed, Airedale Terriers were followed by Wirehaired Dachshunds at the beginning of 1989, and in 1990 I imported the first Welsh Terrier in Romania. Unfortunately at the beginning of the 90’s the quality of Airedale Terriers in our country was so low that even the imported males could not improve the breed. So in the middle of the 90’s I imported a few females from different bloodlines from Hungary, Belgium, Poland, Germany and also from the USA the famous male Am Ch Terrydale HK Shaireab Online (the Montgomery sweepstakes winner in 1999 {78 entries}). The quality of the Welsh Terriers produced in my kennel (1990-2010) was showing an ascending tendency towards modern lines. The famous names in the breed in that period (many world& European winners) can be found in all the pedigrees of Welsh Terriers born in Romania. I kept a Wirehaired Dachshund as a family dog, that is why I had few litters, but all of very good quality, marking the breed in Romania. Here I’d like to mention the father of the BOB in the 2003 Poznan European Dog Show. At the moment we breed and show Miniature Wirehaired Dachshunds and Airedale Terriers, selecting and promoting very carefully the quality of our bloodline combining it with quality dogs from all over the world. The Champion quality results at the above mentioned 3 breeds (more than 12 generations); we obtained quality dogs with positive feedbacks from the USA, Canada, Australia, Russia and Europe. Many of the dogs bred by us become founding dogs for other new kennels.


Judge


I passed my first exam as FCI judge in 1991, later in 2008 I became FCI all-breed international judge. In my activity as a judge, I had the honor to judge at many speciality shows and I had also the privilege to judge at many famous shows in many countries in all over the world and also in World and European Dog shows.


Kennel Club Activity


I have been a very active member of my kennel club since the middle of the 80’s and in 1997 I became the President of the kennel club and together with my team we organize the famous Dracula Dog Show. In 1996 together with some passionate friends we founded the National Terrier and Dachshund Club. Since then I am the President of the National Terrier Club. I was the advisor of the President of the Stud Book between 1996-1999, and between 2000-2004 I was the member of Disciplinary Commission of the Romanian Kennel Club. Since 2004 I have been the chinotechnic vice president of the Romanian Kennel Club and starting with 2009 also the vice president of the Judge Board. I want to continue to contribute to the chinology with my knowledge, with my passionate work as a breeder, as a judge, organizer and mentor of my kennel club, the one that taught me how to become chinologist.


“A society cannot succeed without a cynologic education “

ing. LOKODI Csaba-Zsolt

I was born on 30th May 1968 in Zagreb, the Capital of Croatia where I completed my education. I graduated in 1996 at the Veterinarian University in Zagreb. I am co-owner of the Kennel «The best colour». We have bred more than 40 litters of various Terrier breeds, like Irish Terrier, Lakeland terrier, Welsh Terrier, Kerry Blue Terrier, Soft Coated Wheaten terrier, Airedale Terrier and Miniature Schnauzer. Dogs bred by us have more than 100 national and international champion titles as well as European and World Champions titles.  

I become judge in year 1993. My first breed as breeder and judge was Airedale terrier.

Since now I judged in most European country (International and national shows) as well at the Special Club Dog show, European Dog Show, World dog Show, Bundessieger and VDH-Europasieger Dog Show. 

Name: Mariano Hernan Gatica Gómez.

Age: 46

Born in:  CHILE.

Nationality: Chilean / Spanish

Recognized by FCI to Judge the complete group 3 (Terriers), group 8 (Retrievers, Spaniels and Flushing dogs) and complete group 2 (Pinschers and Schnauzers , Molossoids and Swiss Mountain and Cattledogs).

I am the third generation in sport of pure bred dogs. My grandfather used to hunt with his sporting dogs in his native Spain (Irish Setters, Pointers, and English Cocker Spaniels). My Mother always had English Cockers and Labrador Retrievers at home, and I grew up among them since I was born. Our kennel name, EASTMAN´S has bred more than 130 Champions worldwide in several breeds such as: Labrador Retrievers, Golden Retrievers, Scottish Terriers, Norwich Terriers, Norfolk Terriers, Sealyham Terriers, Afghan Hounds, Shar-Peis, Beagles, Drathaars, Whippets and Salukis. 

We finished over 30 Labradors Retrievers in Chile, and many others won their tittles all over South America, Multiple Specialty Winners and Group winners in several countries.

By 1996 I started to develop some interest in Terriers, and I bought my first show quality Scottish Terrier the same year. Next years I improve my grooming and trimming skills with several different top Terrier Handlers in USA.

Every year I try to go to Montgomery  County.  Also, I travel at least once a year to Europe to see and participate in some big shows like the Euro dog Show, or UK Championship Show. In 2005, I went to Crufts with my Norwich Terrier dog and got Second at the competitive Open Class, being beaten only by the Best of Breed dog who was in the same class. I have bred or own over 100 terrier Champions.  Many of my dogs, have reached the highest awards such as Best in Shows, Best in Specialty Shows (including the USA) and multiple group wins all over the World.

I’m part of the founder group that started the first “Terrier Club of Chile” which started on June 2018, and I was elected President of it for the very first period.

Currently I’m very focused on breeding Norfolk & Norwich Terriers, not leaving my Scotties and Sealys as they were my first breeds on the Terrier group.

I participate many articles in Publications, Books and Magazines about Terriers. Have grooming seminars in many countries and also participate with seminars about dog’s studies and capacitating. 

As international recognized judge and Specialist for Terriers I judged all over the world (from countries in South America, USA, Russia to Europe).

CHAMPION STORMBULL SO WOT JW  achieved his Champion Status very early on in his successful show career. He was a UK Champion at just 18 months of age having already been third UK Top Puppy in 2006 and then runner up UK TOP Male in 2007. He was not campaigned extensively as he was first and foremost our companion but he certainly made his mark.  He is the Sire to the current UK Army Staffordshire Regiment Mascot Staffordshire Bull Terrier WATCHMAN V bred by us from Tyler and Jackabyte Top Totty another successful bitch. Tyler was very selectively used at stud and through those choice matings he has to date produced 14 Champions in the UK and overseas.

‘A life time passion for dogs and the way they enrich our lives is my driving force’

Sean Delmar

In 1964, my interest int he Fox Terrier was born. Throughout my life, this has been a real love story for a breed to which I devote lots of passion and more time than normal.

When Mrs. Hana Krejcova suggested to me that I should present a breed seminar at the Pisa Fox Terrier Winner Show 2019, I thought it was probably an opportunity to bring together a file that will help the Fox Terrier fanciers to understand the breed in the best way.

With the co-operation of some very well known people, I have tried to bring together different opinions so that we may have a larger critique than only mine.

So many thanks not only to Frances Winfield, Harry O`Donoghue, bill brown Cole, Andrew Goodsell and Andras Koroz …, but also to Christian Rangel, Professional Handler coming from U.S.A. for this occasion.

A Fox Terrier story that gave me the possibility as a very young man of only 18 years old, to meet so many great Foy Terrier personalities in UK and later all over the world.

Wires and Smooths, I start with both and first meet and visit English specialists such as Cyril Witham (Townville), Maurice Marshall (Whittingford), Les Atkinson, Herbert Atkinson, Evelyn Howles (Harrowhil), Mary Blake (Watteau), Linda Beak (Newmaidley), Elisabeth Winstanley (Boreham), John Lowe (Lanneau), Ken Dickinson (Ellastone), Andrew Clanachan (Maryholm) and avant tout, my very dear friends and mentors Peter and Frances Winfield (Riber).

So I have extremely fortunate to receive such early teaching and coaching from some of the best specialists in both breeds.

Later, of course, I had the chance to start my Smooth breeding with young stock from the famous UK CH HERMON PALMIST (Miss EMERY) and UK CH WATTEAU CHORISTER (Mrs. Blake) and my Wires with HARROWHILL Line from Evelyn Howles.

Finally the Belfox Kennel was born which now drives us everywhere in Europe, U.S.A., and Australia with Belfox Champions in many countries.

And of course, last but not least, we make many good friends from Vladivostok to Adelaide and from Helsinki to Los Angeles. So, many possibilities to consider that in 50 years the evolution of the breed and the dog sport is so important that we may keep fresh eyes on it!

Also today the facilities to communicate all over the world offer us some other ways to consider breeding and showing dogs!

For the Fox terrier Seminar, I will try to give you just a part of what I feel is important to consider and I was very happy that Mr. Andrew Goodsell gave his permission that I may use his excellent work about the Wire Fox Terrier.

And for sure if we exclude the coat, what is true for Wires is, also true for Smooths.

In my own approach I will propose pictures, comparisons and examples of some dogs and breeders.

In the future, I hope to have the opportunity to do it again with other contributors, just in the hope that it will drive you into the same passion as my love story for the Fox Terrier.

Please enjoy it,

Luc Detry

I got my first dog in 1986 and my first terrier in 1989. This was my first Kerry blue terrier, and later I imported a bitch from England and everything started. I have had the Shyloch prefix since 1990.

I have had American cocker, Boston’s in addition to Kerry blue terriers, but kerries have always been my main breed.

Over the years, my dogs have won Top Dog All breeds 5 times – 4 times in Norway and last year in Denmark. My dogs have been Top Terrier in Norway 13 times. I have world winners, European winners and BOB at Crufts.

I was first authorized to judge in 2004 and I judge all breeds in FCI group 3 plus a few breeds in group 8 and 9.

Judging has brought me to many countries, including 3 times in Ireland and once awarding CC’s in kerries in England. Last summer I had the honor of judging Best in Show at one of the biggest terrier specialties in Europe, there were more than 1000 terriers entered in Finland.

I have been secretary of the Norwegian Terrier Club and I am now leader of the Standard Committee in the Norwegian Kennel Club (NKK).

Hello,

here are a few words about my experience in Bull Breeds.

My name is Dagmar Brommont-Lothary. I`m 50 years old and a professional dog groomer since more than 25 years.

Since I was a school girl I was always interested in Bull Breeds and I started breeding Bull Terriers in 1990 with my affix Amadis. I bred a few Champions and showed them successfully on the Continent and in the UK.

In 2008 I got 2 adult UK Staffordshire Bull Terrier Bitches with whom I started to show and to breed. In the first litter that I got were 3 brindle bitches. All of them became Champions. In the second litter I bred Siegfried von Amadis who won 2 times the Terrier Group in big International Shows and a few CCs. 

In addition to the Staffordshire Bull Terriers me and my husband Ortlieb are breeding successfully Miniature Bull Terriers. 

One of the most famous bitches of the last years is CH Tiffany Bonsai von Amadis who won nearly everything that`s to win. 

Our bitch CH ZoZo Bonsai von Amadis got the bitch CC at CRUFTS in 2015. Our young bitch Kinga Bonsai von Amadis won her first UK CC at the Welsh Kennel club Show 2016 and won her big class at CRUFTS. Her kennel mate Midget Bonsai von Amadis made Best Puppy at CRUFTS. Last year CH Gwenevere Bonsai von Amadis made BOB at CRUFTS and her kennel mate Opium Bonsai von Amadis finished her UK Champion Title.

In the last years I judged Bull Breeds in Germany and a few other countries.

As an example I was elected to judge the Bull Terriers and the American Staffordshire Terriers at the German Winner Show in Leipzig 2017 one day before the World Champion Show.

In the moment I`m showing our young and very successful male Queequeg Bonsai von Amadis. He is a proven sire, son of Kinga and got BOB in Chemnitz under Elzbieta Chwalibog.

I feel very honored and pleased that I`m elected to judge Miniature Bull Terriers in Coventry 2020.

Regards

Dagmar Brommont-Lothary
