Tatjana Urek - Eslovenia
I got my first dog, an English Cocker Spaniel, at 14 years of age. During my study at law faculty I was active in local kennel club in Trbovlje. My regional Club in Trbovlje organized the first national CAC show in 1993 and I am since then the show manager. Sins 6 years I am also show manager from the National group 9 specialties.
I bought my first Shih Tzu in 1989. This bitch was the foundation of my kennel Potala Dalaj Lama. I was successful breeder of Shih Tzus. From my kennel came several champions. After Shih Tzus I was also involved into Little Lion dogs and now I am a breeder of French Bulldogs since 2001.
From my kennel came several national and international champions. I became an international judge in 2000 and I am allowed to judge Groups 7, 8, 9 and 10. I am the President of the breeding committee for Toy breeds and judge for Junior Handling. I was member of the FCI Show and FCI Judges committee and board member from the Slovenian Kennel Club.
Since now I judged in 28 European countries at International and national shows (including FCI-World Dog shows and FCI European Dog Shows), as well at many breed specialties and title shows.
