Michael Hill

I commenced judging in Canada in 1981 and attained All-Breed status in 1994.

My judging assignments have been at All Breed, Group, and Breed Club Championship shows in Canada, USA, Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Denmark, Colombia, Lithuania, Venezuela, and the United Kingdom. I have been fortunate to have been invited to judge at a number of special events including the first Purina National Show in Canada, the inaugural show for the Working Dog Club of NSW, Australia and The Pekingese Club of America National Specialty (twice). In England I have awarded CC’s in Pekingese at both All-Breed and a number of Breed Club Championship shows.

I became involved in breeding and exhibiting pure-bred dogs as a teenager when I joined my parents’ interest in breeding and exhibiting Shetland Sheepdogs. We bred a number of Champions in that breed. Since that time, although I have bred and owned Champion (Am. Can. & UK) Papillons, and also owned a Shih Tzu, my focus has been on Pekingese. It has been 55 years since I first showed a Pekingese. I have bred numerous Champions with many being Group winners (Canada and/or USA) and there have been nine All-Breed Best in Show dogs (Canada and/or USA). In addition I have had Top Pekingese in Canada a number of times as well as Top Toy Dog in Canada. I owned the top Pekingese sire of all-time. I have bred two British champion Pekingese bitches, one who went on to become top winning Pekingese bitch for the year in the USA and also top winning Pekingese bitch for the year in the UK.

Kim Leblanc

You could say I was born with a dog at my side because I have never been without one my entire life. At the age of 16, my mom and I decided we wanted to have a kennel so off she went looking at Golden Retrievers and came home with a Siberian Husky. That was the birth of Snowmist Siberians and the rest is history.

Over the years I have been involved in many different aspects of dogs including competitive sled dog racing, a short stint as a professional handler and several years as a director for the Canadian Kennel Club.

I have had the pleasure of handling quite a few different breeds including Siberians, Samoyeds, Alaskan Malamutes, Standard Poodles, Great Pyrenees, Newfoundlands, Borzoi, and Salukis.

Siberians have been my main focus throughout my canine career. Snowmist Siberians can be found around the world and they have experienced considerable success. Perhaps the greatest moment for my Siberians was when Fizzy won the group at the 2011 WDS in Austria.

Judging was a natural progression for me as a breeder. The opportunity to meet new people, visit interesting places and to judge beautiful dogs around the world has exceeded all my dreams. I have had the honour of judging in my own country (Canada), Australia, Belgium, Brazil, China, Columbia, Czech Republic, England, Estonia, France, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Lithuania, Macedonia, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Poland, Spain, South Africa, South Korea, Sweden, the Philippines, Thailand and the United States of America.

I am a graduate of the canine course “Dogs, A Hobby or Profession” created by the late Casey Gardiner. Included in this educational program was a course on structure that taught structure based on a measuring process. I have used this process to improve my own knowledge, to help others understand what they see and to evaluate litters of puppies and grown dogs. I have conducted all breed measuring clinics as well as seminars on this topic.

David Gilmour

Late in 1987, my wife and I welcomed a male Boxer puppy into our home. The following year, we joined the Canadian Kennel Club and I put a championship on our puppy. So began my involvement in the world of purebred dogs.

Since then, I have: taught puppy classes; participated in obedience trials and conformation shows; taken tracking lessons; joined the Boxer Club of Canada (life member and current President); joined the American Boxer Club; joined the Prairie Canine Academy (current vice president); performed Show Superintendent duties for the Prairie Canine Academy; and performed duties as ring steward for various clubs in Western Canada and Ontario. I am currently the Saskatchewan Director for the Canadian Kennel Club .

My wife and I have been breeding Boxers under the Zaracon prefix since 1991. With limited breeding we have produced 20 Canadian champions of which 2 were also American champions. We have had 2 Dams of Merit, the Top Boxer Puppy for 2007 ( a shared honour ), the Dam of the Year for 2007, and were named the Breeder of the Year for 2007, all Boxer Club of Canada awards. Our Boxers have participated in and obtained titles / certificates in obedience; agility; herding; lure coursing; and conformation in Canada and the States, including wins / awards at national and regional specialties.

I am undergoing the process for dog show judging in Canada and am licensed for the Working Group. This Barrie assignment is my last permit to complete the Sporting Group.

I have judged sweeps at specialties for Boxers, Samoyeds, and Siberians, and also judged the Minnesota Boxer Club Specialty, the Oklahoma Boxer Club Specialty, the Boxer Club of Western Ontario Boxer Specialty, the Heart of America Boxer Club Specialty (at the American Boxer Club Regional Cluster), the Boxer Club of Western New York Specialty, and the Oregon Boxer Club Specialty.
