Ms Vyvyan Mannion (Queensland)
Judging: Dances with Dog Competition

Vyvyan Mannion first became involved in the dog world in 1983, when she attended
obedience classes conducted by Murrumba Dog Obedience Club - now known as
Caboolture Dog Sports Obedience Club.

It wasn’t long before she became an Instructor and Committee Member at the club
and in 1997 she applied and was accepted as a Trainee Obedience judge, attaining
licences to not only judge Novice to UDX obedience but also Endurance Tests and
Dances with Dogs (DWD).

Retiring to Nanango saw Ms Mannion become involved with the local Kennel Club,
where she was appointed Club Secretary in 2006. She has gained numerous titles
competing with her dogs in Obedience, ETs, DWD and Rally O and is currently
training to be a Rally O Judge.

Ms Mannion has judged at competitions in south-east Queensland, along
Queensland’s coastline, in country New South Wales, at the Ekka (Obedience and
DWD) and in the Northern Territory. This year marks 20 years in Obedience judging for
Ms Mannion.
Ms Moira Bruce (Queensland)
                                Judging: Agility and Jumping

                                For as long as she can remember dogs have been a huge part of Moira’s life. At
                                around 12 years old she saw an agility demonstration at a local Pet Expo and from
                                that moment it became her goal to one day get a chocolate Border Collie and take
                                part in such an incredible team sport. Moira got her chocolate Border Collie “Fly” in
                                2006 and has been a member of Dogs Queensland since then. She has been heavily
                                involved in Agility over the years and has also competed in Conformation Showing,
                                Rally O and Obedience – titling her dogs in all these disciplines.

                                Moira is proud of her results as an agility handler and the success of her dogs. Her
                                dogs have placed in the top 10 South East QLD Agility and Jumping Dog of the Year
                                6 times since 2010, and have placed in both State and National events.

                                She is always looking to further her knowledge and skills in agility. She attends
                                courses and keeps up to date with the latest handling techniques and course design
                                and is always happy to pass on her knowledge and has instructed agility for many
                                years at her local ANKC clubs. She has also assisted the Border Collie Club of QLD to
                                organise the dog sports events at the 2016 4th Border Collie Nationals.

                                In 2015 she decided to become an Agility Judge and has judged at many
                                competitions locally and has travelled interstate for numerous judging appointments.
                                She feels that judging is an incredible experience; being able to develop a course and
                                then stand in the middle judging the skills and teamwork of the dogs and handlers.
                                Moira has competed at the Royal Brisbane Show many times over the years with her
                                own dogs and is now looking forward to judging at such a fabulous event where
                                handlers can showcase their beautiful dogs across all the disciplines.

                                She wishes all the best to everyone competing this year.

                                Judging: Racing Queensland – Greyhound Sweepstakes

                                John Palmer has been showing dogs since 1975. His first involvement was with
                                Boxers and he started showing Afghan Hounds in 1981. John has been involved with
                                other breeds, such as American Cocker Spaniels, Pugs, English Cocker Spaniels,
                                Miniature Poodles and he has handled German Shorthair Pointers and Weimaraners
                                with great success.

                                from America in 1987 from the famous Huzzah Kennels. His Greyhounds have
                                enjoyed enormous success with Champions and BIS winners around the world. John
                                also has Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, though rarely shown here they have enjoyed
                                Group and BIS wins in the USA.
                                John has been judging since 1993 with his first group being Hounds, attaining his All
                                Breeds Status in 2010. He has also been honored to judge the Greyhound club
                                shows in America, Sweden and Norway. John has officiated at Dog of the Year events
                                in Sydney and most recently Dog of the Year in Auckland and South Africa. He has
                                been fortunate to judge in many countries including Sweden, Norway, Japan, New
                                Zealand, the USA and Thailand, with upcoming appointments in Malaysia and China.
