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.

In 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.

As I 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.

But why only Dwarf and Miniature Poodles?

That 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 action.

What 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.

Can 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. 

I wonder where this is leading us? 

My Career as a Judge:
