NAME: Gay Kuehnel-Hisatake  - USA


Gay Kuehnel-Hisatake - USABIOGRAPHY:I have been involved with the sport of purebred dogs since the 1970’s, and have bred, owned, and finished 32 Alaskan Malamute Champions, and 3 Schipperkes. The majority of my dogs are owner handled and have been #1 in their breed in the NY/NJ Area, have had Specialty wins, competed in the Top 20 Event at our National, and placed in the Group. My son participated as a Junior Handler for approximately 5 years, and continues to help with the dogs when he is home.
I began Judging in 2000, and am currently eligible to judge 17 of the Working Breeds. My assignments have included three Alaskan Malamute Specialties, including one in Australia, two Siberian Husky Specialties, a Portuguese Water Dog Specialty, and  I am scheduled to judge the Cane Corso Regional in conjunction with their National in 2013.
Last year I retired after 45 years of full time employment as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I am a lifetime member of the Alaskan Malamute Club of America, a member of the Schipperke Club of America, and on the Board of Directors for the Monticello and Wallkill Kennel Clubs, and the Empire Alaskan Malamute Club.
