I got my first brown
miniature poodle in 1969 because I very much liked the colour
brown in poodles.
In 1972 I became an active
member of the German Poodle Association “VDP” (Verband der
Pudelfreunde Deutschland e.V. (VDP)) In 1976 I was elected
Chairman of the Baden-Baden Group of the VDP, and progressed
to President of the VDP Poodle Association. Today we have
nearly 3000 members and produce ca. 900 – 1000 puppies
annually, thus we are the second largest poodle
association in VDH.
1976 I bought a brown miniature poodle bitch, and obtained
from the FCI the internationally protected kennel name “Von
der Yburg”. This bitch produced four litters, and had a
very good show career, among others she was runner-up to the
world champion at the World Dog Show in Basle in 1980.
Since then we have bred more than
60 litters, and our poodles have been very successful at
national and international shows. At present we have in our
home in this time 2 black miniature poodles male and 6
bitches, plus one brown dwarf bitch that presently has a
litter of 11 puppies and 1 brown miniature bitch poodle in
this time only for shows.
already mentioned, since 1972 I have dedicated my life to
the breeding and judging of Poodles. As far as I can think
back I spent my spare time with dogs, especially with Poodles.
The warm colour brown has always been my favourite colour, and
not only with Poodles. But I also liked black Poodles, so this
colour was my second favourite colour. Therefore brown and
black Poodles came first for me.
why only Dwarf and Miniature Poodles?
is quite simple : to me they are like a perfect dream when
they move and present themselves proudly and with style. I am
fascinated by the way they move with a lot of drive and
is important with Poodles is good movement with lots of style,
a good temperament and a nice expression.
These are my thoughts when judging, to my mind only those
Poodles that meet these criteria are the ones for the future.
there be anything more beautiful? No, because the intelligent
and sweet expression of a Poodle is a godsend which I wouldn’t
want to miss anymore.
Nowadays Poodle lovers, that is what they call themselves but
often they are only filled with envy, ambition and greed, are
not into the serious breeding of Poodles for the purpose of
improving the breed. They refuse to see or recognize the
faults of their Poodles.
wonder where this is leading us?
My Career as a Judge:
