Jan Egil Eide
Jan Egil is a Norwegian judge, known for his speedy and flowing courses, the length of which is sometimes compared even to the Tour de France.
On his courses speed is essential for both the handler and the dog, and the winner is often a fit individual with a physique of a sprinter! In his career he has conquered the AWC podium as a competitor, and has had the privilege to judge the AWC 2022 held in Austria.
Jan Egil is a hilarious humorist who enjoys testing the skills of the competitors in an avalanche of ways.
Hugo Santos graces us with his presence all the way from Portugal!
This handsome brunet is not afraid to challenge competitors in the most interesting ways. His courses are known for their insightfulness and being a great fun to run, at least for those who make it through!
He has that international level of quality about him that makes the competitors do their utmost every second of the way.
Jesus is a fast running Spanish judge, who is an established international competitor with his Wockers.
He is well known from his appearances in the AWC and WAO and plenty of other international competitions.
As a judge Jesus favors superfast, technical course designs, where both the handler and the dog are really able to let loose, provided they have the skills to get through the challenges presented. Competitors are pushed to their limits, to achieve that best feeling in the world - finishing with a clean run!
Zeljko Gora is a seasoned member in the Croatian national team and an esteemed Judge. He has reaped fame throughout the international competition field with his malinois and bordercollies.
As a handler this towering long legged gentleman has a step length of about 3,5 meters, is as fast as the wind, and agile as an antilope. To put it short - a force to be reckoned with.
As a judge he values skill, obstacle discrimination and speed! That feeling of being spent after giving it your all, is well guaranteed on Zeljko's courses.
The most polite and joyful member of our judge family is bound to be Petr Pupik from the Chech Republic.
Petr is an experienced judge, who has judged in all the major international championships, and plenty of large competitions throughout the world. His courses flow in a speed unlike any other, and the dogs just seem to fall in all the right places without a worry in the world.
Petr himself competes with a Toller, and is always extra happy when he sees a red coat flying through his course. All in all Petr is a super fun judge, whose courses never leave you cold!
Adding to our already experienced judge crew, is the esteemed Rene Blank from Germany.
Rene travels a lot, keeping handlers, and their dogs on their toes on almost all continents.
His courses are challenging, require a lot of skill and flawless co-operation between the handler and the dog.
Agility is at its best when you succeed on Rene’s course, and this is something you don’t want to miss!
Last, but certainly not least is our own beloved Sari Mikkilä. Hailing from Teuva, Western Finland, she represents the best that Finnish judges have to offer.
Sari is a seasoned, highly regarded and professional Judge, who is loved throughout the world and especially by the Finnish agility community. Not surprisingly, she was selected as the national judge in the Finnish AWC held at Turku 2019.
On top of Judging - a lot - she also competes actively, often in the midst of judging. She is a well oiled agility machine! On Sari’s courses you have just the right balance of speed, technique, challenges and pleasure. It is hard not to smile on her courses, especially if you manage to pull through with a clean run!
