I started in the world of dogs with 15 years as a handler of 1 Great Dane and that same year I bought my first dog to show, a nice brindle Boxer male.

A year later I acquired my first Pyrenean Mountain Dog in France, 1 year later 1 bitch and my first litter, then I never stopped until today that I also have Dobermann. I made 30 litters of the race and obtained excellent results and titles like Champions of France and other countries, as well as titles of World-winner Champions.

I judged the breed in all the European countries, I have judged the Annual French National twice, one of them the World Conference in the country of origin of the breed, I judged the breed at the World Championship in Portugal and in Paris.
