     David’s involvement in the dog fancy began in 1973 as a breeder/owner/handler and then professional handler of Miniature Schnauzers.  In 1994, he retired from breeding and exhibiting Miniature Schnauzers to judge after finishing many AKC champions including Group, Specialty and National Specialty winners. 

     In 1994, David and his partner Stephen fell in love with the Cavalier which continues to occupy their lives to the present. Under the affix of ROKIRK, David has owned and bred champions in Cavaliers, Japanese Chin and Tibetan Spaniels.

     David is approved to judge Best in Show, all Terriers, all Toys, all Non-Sporting breeds, the Working Group Schnauzers, a few Herding breeds, and Junior Showmanship.  He has enjoyed many interesting assignments including the national specialties of all three sizes of Schnauzers and several other Toy and Terrier breeds. Other judging highlights include assignments in Ireland, England, Canada and Denmark and at the AKC Eukanuba and Westminster Kennel Club shows multiple times.

     David is an honorary member of the New Brunswick KC, a member of American Miniature Schnauzer Club, American Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club, Central Carolina Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club, Tibetan Spaniel Club of America, Moore County Kennel Club, and Cary Kennel Club.  He has served as the chairman of Judges Education for the American Miniature Schnauzer Club and is currently a member of the Judges Education Committee for the American Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club.

     Professionally, David worked for GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals for twenty-seven years before taking early retirement and now works work part- time coordinating the music for all liturgies at his local Catholic Church.
