Espen Engh (Norway)
Born into a family where greyhounds have been part of everyday life since 1955, Espen has been very actively involved in the dogs from a very early age. The first litter carrying the prefix Jet’s was bred by Espen and his late mother Kari in 1975.
The Jet’s are the top winning greyhound kennel of all time, having made up 190 individual homebred champions with more than 680 champion titles in 60 different countries, including 90 FCI International champions. Over the years 37 homebred Jet’s greyhounds have won Best in Show and nine homebred greyhounds have become World Champions in recent years.
Espen judged his first dog show in 1984 and was approved to judge at championship show level in 1987. He was authorized to judge all breeds by the Norwegian Kennel Club and FCI in 2011. He had judging appointments in more than 90 countries all over the world. Appointments include more than twenty FCI title shows, including thirteen World Shows and several FCI European, Asian and Americas & Caribbean shows.
He is approved to judge 62 breeds with CCs by The Kennel Club (London), all groups and Best in Show. Appointments include more than a dozen breed club championship shows over three groups, Best in Show at the Hound Show 2010, at Welsh Kennel Club 2012 and all groups and BIS at Leeds 2014.
