I have been involved with dogs all my life. As a young child, our first dog was a Smooth Fox Terrier. Later my parents (in the UK) owned and bred Shetland Sheep Dogs. After immigrating to Australia I adopted a baby puppy from the RSPCA in 1993. Gemma was a mix breed and we enjoyed obedience training. I became involved with Basenjis in 1997 with my kennel being established in 1999. Since then my ‘Tambuzi’ kennel name currently prefixes 15 confirmation titled Basenjis including Australian, American, UCI International, Dutch and German Champions and in Australia one Grand Champion and combined Neuter Champion.  I have had the pleasure of assisting friends show their dogs including; Afghan, Beagles, Cairn Terrier, Smooth Fox Terrier, Borzoi, Deerhound, Mini Smooth, Mini Long, Greyhound, Irish Wolfhound, Saluki, and Whippet. I gained my Hound (Championship) license in 2009 followed by Gundogs in 2014 and Toys in 2016. I look forward to my future appointments. I am currently training to judge Terriers.
