About Me

I am a Championship Judge and have judged Border Collies all over the world. I judged BCs in 2007 at Crufts with an entry of over 200 BC bitches. I have bred 24 UK Show Champions and many more overseas champions.

My kennel is the only UK BC kennel to have produced 2 UK all breed Championship Show Best in Show Winners, many Championship Show Group winners and 4 Crufts CC winners.

I have edited and put together The Border Collie in the "Best in Show" series which has an Amazon rating of 5 stars. and I have recently done a podcast to accompany the Dog World Collie specialty. I have a small kennel with approx 3 acres and a small flock of Balwen sheep.

I am a psychotherapist by profession and have a private practice. My husband has retired now and helps with the feeding and exercising of the dogs. I also have the assistance of Lyn three mornings a week who is a retired kennel owner and groomer.

Champions bred by me

Even once our puppies leave for their new homes we still consider them to be part of the Tonkory Family. Here are a few that have gone on to become champions.
