In addition to being licensed toaward CCs in Dalmatians, she has FCI Group 10 and 4 and several breeds from Groups 2/5/6/7. Mrs Fintorova first started to judging in 1977 and has judged throughout Europe. Below is an excerpt from her Eurodogshow 2017 Judge information:

Dogs have always been a part of my life.

Through dogs I met my husband and made best friends. I had some various breeds and now I have one dalmatian, multiple foxterriers and a miniature dachshound.

We bred dalmatians with my husband under a kennel called Plum pudding .

My profession is close to my hobby, I am a painter specialising in dog and horse portraits.

I really like well balanced dogs which are perfectly fit for their function. I do not like exaggeration and I like dogs that are friendly to the judge. I really enjoy watching dogs playing on the green grass.

I started to judge forty years ago and in the meantime I judged at Worlddog showsEuropedan Dog Shows, Winner Amsterdam, Bundessieger in Germany and Austria, specialties in many countries in Europe including Sighound specialties Skokloster /Sweden/, Donau Echingen /Germany/ and Lago Garda in Italy.
