I have owned, bred and most notably shown, top quality Dobermann since 1979. Showing both the Dobermann Bitch CC record holder Eng & IR CH Pompie Sea Jade of Chancepixies winning some 24 CC’s (a record she held for some 15 years prior to being overtaken). I also handled the Male and Breed record holder CH Sallate Ferris to in excess of 40 CC’s (a record that was eventually broken in 2012). Other Dobermann I have campaigned and gained titles for are: CH Chancepixies Friend or Foe, CH Chancepixies Aura (owned and bred), CH Chancepixies Monopolist (owned and bred), CH Gaindyke Keramia of Chancepixies Bh, CH & IR CH Vincenza Distant Thunder, CH Vincedobe Eclipse of Chancepixies and CH Chancepixies Locomotive.
I am also a Championship show judge in the UK and have been invited to, and fulfilled, judging appointments internationally.
I became heavily involed in the working aspect of the Dobermann taking part in the VPG/IPO sport with notable success both through breeding and handling, having bred 4 of the first 10 Dobermann in Great Britain to have full working titles, namely Chancepixies Legend VPGIII, Chancepixes Angellica VPGI, and also being the handler of Chancepixies Auctioneer VPGI and Chancepixies Cherry Brandy VPGI.
