Advisor and Breed Expert Wim Wellens
As well as my colleague adviser and Breed Expert Janny Offereins, I too will certainly be no stranger to many of you. As a judge of the Drentsche Partridge Dog I am active for many years.
Started in the Cynology I am with a race that is closely related to the Drentsche Partridge dog, namely the Epagneul Français. In addition to exhibiting, working and breeding with this breed, I have always followed the the Dutch Patridge Dog since the late 70s.
I was therefore delighted that in 1998, already many years ago I passed for the breed Drentsche Partridge Dog.
Since a little 10 years I have been appointed by the association Drentsche Partridge Dog as “permanent judge” and advisor to the breed.
In this context, I was able to accompany three times a training programme for new judges and until recently was part of the FBC of the VDP.
Now that there are officially two kennel clubs for our beautiful breed, I am very honored that the Drentsche Patridge Dog Club Nederland also wishes to use my expertise.
So I gladly accepted the invitation for the sake of the breed.
