I have been involved with Irish Setters since 1977, firstly in obedience then when I married we got our first show dog this was in 1984. I am a confirmation judge for the Gundog/Sporting Dog Group. And trainee judge for Hounds and Working dogs. I own and run a dog boarding kennels. I have bred 27 champions in my Martinridge prefix 4 have become Grand Champions and have also title 6 other Irish Setters with 2 becoming Grand Champions. I have many Best in Show and Group winning dogs. My Martinridge prefix is behind many of the top winning dogs not only here in Australia but I am proud to say around the world. Irish Setters are a big part of my life. Bernie
Wow Bernie, you have a great looking set of dogs! I was going to comment on an individual photo but I could not decide which one I liked best. It is easy to see your abilities and experience in breeding champion Setters.
Thanks Alenka, we are very proud Roger is doing so well. Thomas sounded very pleased that Roger gained his German and Mexican Championship within a week or two of each other. That makes 4 champions from this litter with Rogers brother Monty finishing his championship last weekend. All the best, Bernie
