JUDGING 

 

Ann Ingram Judge

I was born into the world of dogs with a mother who bred Boxers, and a father who was a Terrier man and professional handler.  I started to handle almost as soon as I could walk!!  Wanting to have something different for myself, I bought a Boston Terrier from England, which became my first English Champion when I was just 14 years old.  It was not long before I transferred my affections to Boxers and Poodles, and in later years Lhasa Apsos, with the occasional Whippet, Beagle, Pug and Shetland Sheepdog just for fun!!!  I have subsequently made up 24 English Champions and over 100 Irish Champions.

Currently President of the Boxer Society of Ireland , Past President of the Irish Boxer Dog Club and Poodle Club of Ireland, I also served  as Chairperson of Belfast Dog Show Society for several years.   Aged 16,  I had my first judging appointment under both I.K.C. and E.K.C.  Rules.  I awarded C.C.s for the first time in 1977 at the Scottish Boxer Club Silver Anniversary Ch. Show.  I judged regularly over the following years and became an All Rounder under I.K.C. Rules in 1984.

I am currently an All Breeds Judge under F.C.I. Rules and I am approved in the UK to judge at Group Level, All Groups & Best In Show.   I have regularly judged in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Asia, South Africa, South America and 17  European Countries, more than 37 Countries in total, including 3 times at the Stockholm International Winners Show, The European Winners Show Budapest, European Winners Show Dublin, Hobart Royal, Best In Show at Brisbane Royal 2004, Best In Show Helsinki International Winners Show 2005, 2 appointments at Crufts, Best In Show Belfast Ch. Show and Utility Group British Utility Breeds Association Ch. Show. I am approved by the English Kennel Club to judge all the Groups and Best In Show..

I still love the Breeding side of the Dog World & try to find a balance between judging and breeding dogs.  I no longer show Boxers but I still exhibit Toy Poodles on a regular basis, and won the Dog C.C. at Crufts 2008 and World Winner Stockholm  2008, and World Winner Herning 2010 .
