I was very pleased to be nominated as a judge for the FCI IGP 2020 World Cup in the Netherlands. It is a great honor for me and it is one of the highlights of my career as a cynologically judge.
I have been interested in cynology since 1980. Together with cynology sport I was involved in professional cynology with the Czech Police. First in direct action, later in the dog center for police handlers and dogs.
I have participated in many competitions in national as well as international level. I took part in the FCI and WUSV World Championship for nine times, which is the highlight of my dog sport career. I like watching dogs on the trail and as a judge I really like this category. I judged at many different FCI national championships according to IGP and IGP FH and also as supervisor at the FCI World Championship. During the last five years I have been the leader of the Czech Republic’s national team at the FCI IGP and IGP-FH World Championship.
I am very excited about this event and I wish all competitors of this championship good luck and joy from the performance of their dogs and other competitors

I am pleased and grateful for the invitation for the judging of department B (Obedience) of the FCI World Cup in Holland.
I have been active in dog sports for 42 years.
My first working dog was an Airedale Terrier.
The first time I competed in an SV BSP was in 1986, in total I competed there 5 times with 4 German Shepherds and in 1996 I took part in the WUSV World Championship in Finland.
With my two Malinois Lennox and Rigo I participated in several national championships and qualified for the FCI World Championship in 2006 and 2012, where I finished fourth with my dog Rigo.
In the last recent years I have judged various departments (A, B and C) at DMC Championships and judged for six times the DMC FH Championship.
Since 2014 I have been DMC Performance Judge Chairman.
At the FMBB World Championship 2016 I participated as judge in the World Cup in department B, and in the finals in department C.
In 2017, I judged the participants of the VDH FH DM and in addition, I have judged international IGP championships in the last couple of years.
In 2020, unfortunately, the FMBB World Cup and the Spanish Championship have been cancelled due to pandemic.
I was invited to judge the B-department on both of them.
I wish all participants all success and the best.

Anja van der Meijden
Born October 7, 1958, in 1979 I bought my first German shepherd and became a member of a circle group of the VDH.
I was the first female helper in competition in time in the Netherlands and since then, I took part and are still helping at several associations.
With two different dogs I have been a competitor in the European WUSV team five times in total and in 1983 the first and am, until so far, the only Dutch(wo-)man to win the EUSV in Hasselt Belgium with 293 points and a year later with the same amount of points , I became 2nd in Italy.
I trained a Dobermann-handler up to his participation in the FCI championship. In 1993 I passed my exams to be judge and since then I have regularly judged main events of the VDH as well as numerous exams and competitions, where the work drive and spontaneity of the work shown by the dogs are paramount, and made a positive contribution to main events of other breeds.
