I got my first long-haired dachshund as a teenager in 1981.
and joined the Deutschen Teckelklub as a member.
Since then, the breed has accompanied me, which I have also successfully bred under the kennel name "von der Weidewiese".
I have had many successes with my dogs at exhibitions, breeding shows and also at working tests.
I became a working judge in 1996.
Since 1999 I have been a breed judge.
In 2006 I was appointed group judge of the FCI Group 4.
I am active in the Landesverband Thüringen as a Obfrau für das Ausstellungswesen as well as the 2nd chairwoman.
Since 2016 I am the Bundesobfrau für das Ausstellungswesen in the Deutscher Teckelklub 1888 e.V.
Since 2013 I have extended my activity as a breed judge to the FCI group 7 and 8 and am a specialist breed judge for Dachshund, White Swiss Shepherds and Dalmatians.
I have been a judge in many countries.
