Kohtunike tutvustus / Judges CV
I breed Russian Black Terriers under kennel name “Deti Arbata”. I got my very first Latvian bred RBT named Arbat Bahrai in 2002, he became a very famous dog not only because of his multiple Best in Show wins being owner-hanled by my father but also thanks to his many successful children. Having such an outstanding dog I wanted to learn more about dog genetics, anatomy and breeding and finished Latvian Cynological Federation organized course in cynology. Then I got my kennel foundation bitch from Finland, registered a kennel and started an exciting and difficult work on breeding and creating a line of my beloved RBTs. I handle my dogs myself and enjoy it very much.
I became an FCI judge in 2017. Being a doctor, I am a gynecologist-reproductologist, I put health of the dogs on the first place. I find it very interesting to judge dogs from the very diverse Group 2, I love and understand working breeds. In the ring I appreciate breed specific movement, head and temperament and as my judge supervisor Mrs. Rita Kadike-Skadina has taught me I try to see a dog as a whole picture without picking on the small details. The main goal of dog judging is to promote breeding of healthy and sound dogs to bring joy and love to their human families.

I was born in 1966 into a non doggy family but being an only child I longed for my parents to get a dog as I knew this would make the perfect companion for me. As my parents didn’t share my passion I was almost 17 years of age before my wish was granted and a cross breed dog was acquired.
My first pure bred Dalmatian female came later after I had set up home on my own and then 3 years later I was introduced by a mutual friend to an already very successful Rough Collie breeder and pretty soon I was the new owner a Rough Collie female and co owner, along with my boyfriend at the time, of a male. The breeder in question was Denis Sabolic (DENNISAY’S Collies), who was then “only” the breeder of my first Collies but who later became my mentor, my friend and my partner.
At the time of writing Denis and I have been together for 28 years and we share our home with our 8 year old twin boys, Filip & Aleksandar and 11 dogs. We continue breeding our Dennisay’s-Geantles Collies and have bred or owned over 100 Champions in all three colours and both sexes including International, WORLD & EUROPEAN Champions.
Our Collies were TOP DOGS 22 times, 18 years in a row.
I began showing dogs early in my canine career and my first Rough Collie male, MULTI CH. Dennisay’s Forgery, who I mentioned earlier became one of TOP Collies in ex Yugoslavia.
Together with Denis, we were the first handlers in the country and were part of a small international group of 4 professional handlers. We were pioneers in that profession in Europe and for 7 years I was showing dogs with great success, achieving wins with numerous TOP DOGS in their breeds, Groups and BIS winners all over Europe.
Over the years I have been involved in organization of a couple of National and International shows with great success. Both Denis and I are holders of the GOLDEN MEDAL, one of the highest awards given by the Croatian Kennel Club for our breeding & showing achievements and also for our overall contribution to Croatian cynology.
I became a dog show judge in 1993. My first licensed breeds were British Sheepdogs. 10 years later I have finished the FCI Group I and FCI Group V.

During these 24 years I have judged in over 25 countries, 4 Continents, including the Collie National in Melbourne, Australia, which was a great honor for me as a breeder. I am glad and honored that as a judge I have some additional countries and Continents booked into my future Schedule.
Photography is my another passion and three years ago we celebrated 20 years of DEYA PHOTOGRAPHY which is a name renowned throughout the World as being synonymous with excellent dog and cat photography – our photos can be found on all the continents in numerous magazines, books, coverings, adverts and one of them even found its place on the official pedigree form of Croatian Kennel Club for a couple of years.
