Ronald van Straten

Hello, my name is Ronald van Straten, 56 years young and I work as team leader at the harbor of Rotterdam. I live together with Hilda Schriek (Agility World Champion 1996) for 38  years now and together we have 3 dogs; 1 Border Collie, 1 Shetland Sheepdog, 1 Pumi.

I'm active in Agility for ± 30 years already, and my best results were achieved with Bearded Collie Mad Maddy and Blues the Shetland Sheepdog.

In recent years, I have supported the organization of several competitions. In 2006 I have started the training to become a agility judge, and currently I'm FCI agility judge. I enjoy judging competitions a lot.


I had opportunity to judge many competitions inland and abroad, for example :


2008 Cynophilia Dutch Masters

2008 Border Collie Classic, Netherlands

2009 Dogs in need, U.K. grade 3 and 4

2010 Dutch Championship

2011 Dutch World Champion selections

2011 European Championship Junioren

2011 Warsaw agility competition Poland

2013, 14, 15 Drammen Dogfestival Norway

2015 Polish Championships Poland

2015 East Asian Agility Championships Bangkok Thailand


I feel honored to be invited to judge at the Border Collie Classic 2016, and I hope this event will be successful.
