Viola Hebeler
I am a vet for horses and working dogs. As a hobby, I’ve bred sheep and owned Border Collies since 1989. I was German National Champion twice and 3 times Vice Champion. 7 of my dogs qualified over 20 times for the German teams at Continentals or World Trials, 4 went through to Continental finals. I was president of the German ABCD and am now Chair of the Continental Sheepdog Committee. I love training and running my dogs, but I also enjoy judging. I was invited to judge trials in 8 countries, among them 6 Nationals with DG finals. I am honoured to be invited to judge your Nordic Championship.
