Wir dürfen als Richter begrüßen

 

Thomas Kühn (D, Prüfungsleiter)

Seit einiger Zeit wohne ich in einem Dorf bei Wesel, direkt am Rhein.

Meinen Labrador führe ich auf jagdlichen und nichtjagdlichen Prüfungen im In- und Ausland. Die Wochenenden gehören den Hunden. Training, Starten und Richten füllen einen großen Teil der Freizeit aus. So bleibt der Spannungsbogen immer gespannt und das macht Freude.

Beim Richten versuche ich praxisbezogene Aufgaben zu stellen, die jagdnah sind, den Hund und Führer fordern, aber nicht überfordern. Ich hoffe das gelingt uns wieder an diesem Tag. Allen wünsche ich dabei gutes Gelingen.

Vielen Dank für die Einladung zu diesem WT. Allen wünsche ich einen schönen Tag, ein entspanntes Miteinander, Fairness und viel Suchenglück.

Herzlichen Dank für die Einladung zur „Work&More“.

Ich lebe im Ruhrgebiet und die Arbeit mit den Hunden fasziniert mich jeden Tag aufs Neue. Mit der Erfahrung als Helfer, Trainer, Sonderleiter, Hundeführer und jetzt als Richterin, kenne ich viele Gemütszustände, die eine Prüfung für alle Beteiligten mit sich bringt. Es ist immer wieder spannend zu erleben, wie Hund und Hundeführer miteinander agieren und gestellte Aufgaben meistern.

Mit dem Wissen, dass auch mit einem gut ausgebildeten Hund nicht immer alles glatt läuft und jeder Workingtest eine neue Herausforderung darstellt, möchte ich interessante Aufgaben stellen und somit zum Gelingen dieser Prüfung beizutragen.

Ich freue ich mich als Richterin auf einen schönen Tag mit Gleichgesinnten im Saarland, faires Miteinander und wünsche allen Startern viel Suchenglück.

My dog story started more than 30 years ago.

A few weeks after I married, my wife and I took the decision to buy a Labrador

to live with us and our horses.  His name was „Fame“.

Thanks to „Fame“ a whole new world  opened for me; the Dogworld.

About 20 years ago I bought my first dog with only Field Trial lines, going back on the lines from Alan Thornton –Tess Lawrence and a bitch from Lynn Minchella.

They both won several Field Trials, with CC, and AbbeysteadGaiety, the bitch, was mostly placed in the top 3 every time she participated.

The last years her daughters, and their descendants, some who are living with me and others living in Europe, have done superb during the Field Trial season and on Working Tests.

I am judging since 1990, not only Shows but also Hunting Tests, Working Tests,

and Field Trials. Thanks to judging appointments like this.

I judged Tests and Field Trials all over in Europe. I love to train my own dogs, especially in the UK,  and I’m glad that I can help

other handlers with my experience. I have met a lot of Retriever people and I had the opportunity to getting to know them better and appreciate them even more. I am looking forward to see you all and wish you all a lot of joy, success and happiness with your Best Friend!

And…. Good Luck!

Jo lives in the North of Belgium, he started in 1993 and bought his first Labrador Roydon Yochiver with the intention to do obedience training. In 1998 came the first working breed Labrador, From Gundogs’ Heaven Billy in.

From Gundogs’ Heaven Billy became the title of Belgian & International Field Trial Champion. He qualified Billy three times for the Belgian Retriever Championship. Since the last 10 years, Jo has qualified two of his dogs on 5 occasions for the Belgian Retriever Championship. As an amateur, he made two field trial champions in the last decade, B. & Int. FTCH From Gundogs’ Heaven Billy and B. FTCH Starcreek Devon.

He has participated on field trials and workingtests in Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Germany and United Kingdom.

He was one of the founders, member of the board and vice-president of the Belgian Labrador Retriever Club in 2001. He was also responsible for the working committee for many years. Since 2006, he is FCI Field Trial judge for Retrievers. His experience as a FCI Field Trial judge for Retrievers has taken him to the Netherlands, Germany, France, Switzerland, Italy and Spain judging Field Trials and Gundog Working Tests.

Training seminars have also featured in different countries. Jo bases his training style on the English techniques. He likes to see gundogs who hunt with style and have natural gamefinding abilities.

During the hunting season, he attends multiple shooting grounds with his dogs and he believe that these are the most beautiful moments in a year.

He wish all the best for the competitors on the workingtest Saarland “Work and more 2018”.

Thank you for your kind invitation to judge WT „Work and More“

We have had Golden Retrievers in our family for more than 25 years, and at the present time, we have 4 Goldens in the house in the age from 1 to 13 years.

When the time permits us, our dogs are run on tests mainly in Denmark, but also in Sweden and Norway from time to time we participated in tests and other events. During the shooting season we will take the dogs picking up.

In the past I have been chairman of the Danish Retriever Club and for a long period of time also been a member of the judge committee, where I have been in charge of the education of new judges.

I have been a judge since 2006, is a Danish A Field Trail judge and FCI Judge for Retrievers. In addition to the usual tests in Denmark, Norway and Sweden, I have had the pleasure of judging the championship tests in Denmark several times, including the Danish Field Trail Championship, International Field Trails, and the Norwegian Championships and Nordic Championships for all retrievers as well as for Goldens.

Within the last couple of years, I have also had the pleasure of judging several times in Germany.

My approach to tasks and assessment emphasizes the dog’s hunting qualities, where I am particularly pleased to see young talented dogs.

I am looking forward to a fine weekend with excellent dog work. Good luck to all.
