MR. KENNETH KAUFFMAN of SELLERSVILLE, PENNSYLVANIA has been involved in the sport of purebred dogs for more than forty years, getting his first Cairn Terrier in 1974. His introduction to the world of dog shows was through obedience. His love of breeding and competition led him to the conformation ring and in 1978 produced his first homebred champion. In addition to judging, Kauffman is still actively breeding and showing Cairn Terriers, and along with his husband, he breeds and shows Sealyham Terriers. Kauffman has produced and shown more than 50 champions including a number of specialty and group winners under the Brehannon banner. He has been judging for more than thirty years and is currently approved to judge the Terrier and Toy groups as well as Best in Show and Junior Showmanship. Kauffman, a retired art teacher from Girard College, lives in an historic farmhouse with his husband, Jack Friedel. His other passions include painting and woodworking. This is his first judging assignment at Westminster.
