2021 Open Show: Judge: Ms Rosie Hawkins
Thank you to The Poodle Club of Victoria for the invitation to judge the Open Show in 2021.
I’ve been involved in the dog world all my life with my mother bringing myself and her first Chihuahua home on the same day.
Papillons have been my one true love in the dog world, starting the “Papco” prefix in 1983 with great success in breeding & exhibiting.
I gained my toy licence in 2018, and have since judged group, specialities and breed specialities overseas and interstate.
I’m a life member of The Papillon Club of Victoria of which I’ve been Treasurer for 20 years, currently the Secretary of Dandenong & Lady Bay All Breed Clubs.
In the everyday life I live in the Western District on 5 acres of bushland with all the Australian wildlife at my backdoor, with my husband and I work at Saputo Dairy Australia in the Quality Department.
I started studying for my Group 7 licence in 2019 and look forward to judging the elegant & aristocratic Poodles.
