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.
