Carol Beckett

Carol’s introduction to the dog world was in 1988 when together with her husband, they purchased their first Australian Cattle Dog. Success in the ring quickly followed.

Some 107 Champions, many Best in Shows and Supreme Champions later, she is proud to say that the name TAGETARL is acknowledged worldwide for top quality ACDs and there are TAGETARL dogs in 12 counties worldwide. Carol is also known as a breeder of winning Stumpy Tail Cattle Dogs, Silky Terriers and Australian Terriers, both at all-breeds and specialty level. Together with her husband they have bred 16 individual All-Breeds BEST IN SHOW winning dogs.

Carol has been involved with dog administration having served in executive positions on many all-breeds, obedience clubs and as a long-time councilor. Carol is published in both National and International magazines, journals and organisation websites. The majority of these writings relate to judging and breeding Australian breeds.

Carol is licenced to Judge: Toys, Terriers, Gundogs (Sporting), Working Dogs (Pastoral), Utility (Working) and Non-Sporting Dogs. Carol has judged across Australia as well as overseas at all-breeds, single breed specialty shows and group specialty shows. Judging for her is a fantastic opportunity to meet new people with similar interests and commitments.

Carol is thrilled to be asked to judge the German Cattle Dog and Kelpie Specialty,  this will be her first appointment in Germany.
