Let Jo reach the parts.....
WE ARE delighted to welcome another new columnist to our growing band, this time in the shape of Jo Amsel, who will be doing a column entitled Hair of the Dog!
Jo owned one of the top professional show yards and studs in the equine world for 16 years and has been involved in top level showing for 30 years. She was a judge on the major pony panels and also horses and has judged as far afield as Australia.
She became involved with dogs in the early nineties. She has made up a whippet and shows Italian Greyhounds breeding and/or owning nine U.K. Champions. Nearly half the puppies that she has bred (56 in 14 years) have won CCs or RCCs, some are Multi-titled.
She has qualified dogs for Pup of Year, Junior Stakes, Veteran Stakes and Breeders Stakes Finals.
She has also won rounds of Champion Stakes. She exhibited dogs in Europe, Ireland and the USA.
