Judge section C: Mr. Marinus Bastiaansen (B)
I was born in 1960 and grew up with dogs but got my first GSD when I
was 16 years old. I bought my first pup in 1980 and became a member
of VVDH (Belgium GSD Club). With this pup, my first competition dog, I
competed later on in more than 80 trials, included 4 times Regionals,
and 3 times Nationals. I gained the bronze, silver, gold and brilliant trainingsmedal
in VVDH. Straight after I joined my club, I got involved in the protection and helperwork, I got my
official trial helper and tracklayer licence in 1985. Beside a lot of local trials I was also a helper for
Regionals, Nationals and Selection Trials.
After being VVDH judge for several years I became official FCI judge in 1996. I also judged already
in Regionals, Nationals, Selection Trials & Championships in different countries, and judged the
protection phase at the 2015 WUSV World Championship in Slovakia.
I became member of the working dog committee of VVDH in 2001 and since 9 years I’m president of
this committee. Most people will probably recognize me as team captain from the Belgium WUSV
team. A job that I did with pleasure for more than 15 years.
