Mrs. Lesley Hiltz
MRS. LESLEY E. HILTZ of Brush Prairie, Washington began in the sport of dogs in 1967 while living in Australia. During a three-year working stay in the U.K. she owned and exhibited two Beagles across Britain. Upon her return to Australia in 1972 she brought the two beagles and a Cardigan Welsh corgi with her.
Her judging career began in 1979 when she was approved to judge the Hound and Toy groups in Australia. Ms. Hiltz has judged worldwide including in Sweden, Norway, Germany, Chile, China, Taiwan, Canada, Philippines, and the Czech Republic.
After moving to the U.S. in 1988, she continued to study breeds and is now approved to judge the Hound, Herding Toy, Non-sporting groups and numerous Working breeds. This is her first judging assignment at Westminster.
