A discussion of the Standard
and thoughts on judging the breed, with illustrations.
Lynn G. Butler

Lynn Butler and his wife Carolyn have been involved in GSP's since 1970. A past president, Lynn held several other positions within The GSP Society of NSW over almost 20 years. His judging career started with Gundog (Sporting) Group License in 1980, progressing to All Breeds status in 1999. Carolyn gained her breed licence in 1988, and is now licensed to judge All Breeds as well.

They have judged in most parts of Australia and New Zealand, as well as in USA, UK and Asia. Lynn has judged a Breed Specialty in both USA and UK. Under the Kazia prefix, they have bred over 70 Shorthairs with Championship titles in breed, as well as many with Field, Obedience, Agility and Non-Slip Retrieving Trial Titles.
