About our Judge Mr Tim Ball
 Tim Ball

 My chosen breed is the Shar Pei and it is more than 30 years since my involvement with the breed began. I served on the committee of the Shar Pei Club of Great Britain for many years including a number of years as Chairman. During this time I played an active role in the Shar Pei being elevated to full Championship status in the UK. Currently I am Vice President of the Club and a number of years ago I was made an Honorary Life Member.

I judged Shar Pei at Crufts in 2000 and have officiated overseas on a number of occasions. I progressed to judge other breeds and currently I am approved to award Challenge Certificates in twenty breeds across the Utility, Toy, Working and Pastoral Groups plus I am approved to judge the Utility Group at Championship Show level.

Within the Utility Group, I am approved to judge a number of Spitz breeds and I successfully passed the Finnish Spitz judging assessment a few years ago. I am honoured to have been invited to judge your Club Show in October and look forward to spending time with your wonderful breed once again.
