MAIJA AS FCI JUDGE

I became FCI authorized  to judge in the year 2000 - almost 19 years ago! This journey has taken me to 24 countries in three continents - and to my great pleasure, many times in most countries. Travelling gives me gray hair because of logistics, but being allowed to meet so many nice dogs AND people on my way overshadows all the disadvantages. The judge's first love is dogs. That is why we became judges  -the love of dogs!

Judge since 2000. Breeds I judge: 

FCI group one and two, some breeds in group 5 (Norwegian breeds) and 8 (water dogs).
