Anita Duggan – Ireland

I was born in 1975 and I am married to my husband Jimmy and we have two children. Jason who is 12 and Aaron who is 9.

I got my first husky about 26 years ago and was well and truly smitten by the Breed.

I had already been involved with showing as my mother has owned and Bred Shih Tzus for about 40 years under the Leorient affix.

I represented Ireland twice at the International Junior Handling Final in Crufts in 1990 and 1991. We have owned bred and Campaigned about 20 Siberians to their Irish title and International titles. We have owned or bred the top winning Siberian male or female and sometimes both in Ireland since 2003 with my current Siberian Male being top Siberian 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 also runner up top dog All breeds in Ireland for 2012 and 2014. He was also runner up champion of champions in 2012.

We have been very fortunate to have in our Kennel the first ever Irish Champion in the breed, the youngest ever Champion in the Breed , First Siberian to win a Best in Show in Ireland and currently have the top 3 most winning Siberians in Ireland in our Kennel to date to name but a few.

I started judging in 1997 and am now qualified to judge Best in show as well as FCI groups 2, 5, 6, 9 and 10. I have judged in Sweden, Denmark and USA and had the honour of judging Best in show in America.
