Dunasziget judges

STEFANIA MARTINOLI

I got interested in  gundogs 15 years ago when my father bought a trained working labrador in England.  I used to go shooting with my dad and I fell in love with this breed.

I started running labradors myself when I met my husband Stefano.  Since then I have run my labradors successfully in Working Tests and Field Trials in Italy and abroad and I was in the Italian Team at the Coupe d’Europe, in Highclere and at the CLA Game Fair in the UK many times.  I have made up a few Field Trial Champions and my bitch FTCH Greenbriar Tiler was also nominated Top Labrador at the CLA Game Fair in England in 2009.

I train labradors, goldens and cheasepeaks professionally.  Together with my husband I breed working labradors under the kennel name Waterfriend.  I love watching dogs work and for this reason some years ago I became Working Test and Field Trial judge. The main things I want to see in gundogs are style, how they use their nose, their gamefinding abilities and how they form a partnership with their handlers.

I am very pleased to come to Hungary to judge a working test in such beautiful surroundings  and I wish everybody good luck!!

 

CINZIA SGORBATI

I have owned labradors for over 20 years and I breed labradors together with my husband Sergio under our Dolphingham affix.  We have always shown and worked our dogs and we have gained over 32 titles during the years. 

I train and run all our labradors both for working tests and field trials. I strongly believe that even retrievers from show lines should get the chance to work and maintain those assets such as good temperament  and gamefinding abilities typical of this breed.  My love for shooting and picking up also led me to get interested in judging and so I have become International Field Trial judge.  As I am interested both in showing and working our labradors, I am now training to become an International Show judge too.

In these last years I have judged several field trials and working  test in Italy and abroad and have always had great pleasure and satisfaction in doing it.

In 2009 I was asked by the Italian Kennel Club to select the dogs for the Italian Team participating  in the filed trial for the Cup d’Europe in Denmark : testing many dogs for such an important gundog event has been a real challenge but I really enjoyed that task.

I am honoured to have been asked to come to Hungary to judge your working test.

I am looking forward to as I know I will see beautiful grounds and a high standard of  gundog work.
