At the end of May 2017 I drove just over 1,300 klm to South Australia with a team of 6 dogs to exhibit them under Mr Kjell Svensson (Sweden) at the Golden Retriever National. This is a major event that is held every 4 years in a different Australian City. The National had over 200 of our countries most beautiful Goldens exhibited in the Conformation Show, clearly a huge event. It was also a pleasure to exhibit my dogs at the South Australian Winter International which was held the weekend after our National, here we had two Golden Retriever specialist judges; Mr J Doval Sanchez (Spain) and Mrs Ainslie Mills (Canada). I am extremely proud of our achievements, images of our wins are presented for your enjoyment. I also thank my good friend and driving buddy Rika Yoshino who helped make this a memorable event for BlueBreeze!!
