About Jane:

One of the keys to Jane's exhibiting success was her ability to breed quality dogs. In the early 1960s, Jane and husband Bob started breeding Airedale Terriers under the 'Rangeaire' prefix. In only 50 litters, they produced 80 Champions in fourteen generations straight, most likely another world record. The successful line-breeding program had a theoretical basis arising from Jane's studies of Veterinary Science at University. Jane's deep understanding of genetics, pedigrees and line-breeding led her to produce the video/DVD How to Make a Show Dog. The companion video/DVD How to Raise a Litter of Puppies explains the preparation, whelping, weaning and early training.

Jane's expertise in dogs naturally led her to becoming a judge. She started judging in the 1970s and now holds Australian National Kennel Council Championship Show licenses for the Terrier, Toy, Gundog (Sporting) Utility, and Non-Sporting Groups. Her judging activities have led here all over the world including New Zealand, Finland, Sweden, Germany, Zimbabwe, South Africa, UK, USA, Canada and every state in Australia. The importance of the breed standard is emphasised in many of her videos/DVDs including Terriers Then and Now and How to Judge a Cocker Spaniel.
