David Smith judge for the David Layton Memorial Awards.
I have now been involved in German Shorthaired Pointers for over 10 years, my introduction to dogs came at a very early age.
I grew up around dogs but mainly as family pets, such as Dobermans and Golden Retrievers.
I used to spend hours off fishing or taking adventures with my dogs.
I ran a very successful horse show production and dressage yard , we as a yard had many prestigious wins including HOYS and the Royal of England.
One of the horses I owned was the first British bred Hanoverian to be licenced as a stallion with the German verband.
German shorthairs were an easy choice for me after visiting a few champ shows I just fell in love.
I have been showing my dogs and some for others now with some good success.
It is a great pleasure to be invited by the committee of the GSPA to judge their stakes classes at the forth coming Championship show.
