Ivan has been working with dogs since 2009, when he and his wife decided to open our own Centre for Dogs in Asturias in the north of Spain.

Their goal was to promote Dog Agility in this region of Spain. In the last several years, they have celebrated two Spanish Championships and other important national competitions in this region that have been attended by a lot of competitors. The World Agility Open was held in Asturias in 2013 which Ivan was involved with as well as working in the organization of the FCI AWC in Spain in 2016.

Ivan started to compete in agility with his German Shepherd Charly in 2009 and he now runs a Spanish Water dog. However, above all this Ivan loves to judge. He gets particular enjoyment thinking about the different paths for the dogs, always bearing in mind the safety as well as the enjoyment for both dogs and handlers.

Ivan has judged in many countries and throughout Spain with several big European events on his CV

 

Ivan said “I feel very proud to be one of the Judges of the CSJ Agility Open in 2022 and I´m very grateful with the organization of this great event for giving me again the opportunity to be able to judge in UK”
