As a youngster Theo did consistently well at open shows, gaining many Best of Breed and Group placements. Theo also had some success at Championship shows.

Tineke and Theo also took part in Junior Handling events, with much sucess. The highlights included many 'Best Junior Handler' awards and qualifing for the 'Junior Handling Association' Semi Finals at Richmond for three years on the run.

After a break from the ring, Theo returned to 'Veteran Classes'...qualifing for Crufts in 2006 and 2007.
