I live in Nykoping, close to Stockholm in Sweden with my husband Kenth. We have run a Boarding Kennel since 2000, so we are lucky to work with dogs every day. My interest in dogs started early. I got my first dog when I was 8 years old. It was a poodle and we were best buddies for 11 years. We got our first Portuguese Waterdog in 1993. Her name was “Mandy” and she was out of mostly Cartmel-lines from England. Our first litter was born in1996 under our Kennel name AQUATASS. I have since then been deeply devoted to the breed. Being a breeder is a big responsibility. I work for a heathy and sound PWD. It is important for me to see the whole structure of the dog.
I have been breeding several Champions and Swedish Specialty Winners along the way. I am also a Handler and have been showing my own dogs since 1994. I just love to be in the ring with my own dogs, and others as well. We were at the PWD Specialty in Maryland in 2005 and in Monterey in 2016 and it was a pleasure to see all the PWD`s.
I have been involved in the PWD Breed club in Sweden for many years working for the Breeding committee and Show committee.
I am very honored to be chosen for this assignment. It will be a great privilige to come and Judge Sweepstakes and Veteran Sweepstakes for you.
