Glen Dymock grew up in Australia where his parents were successful breeders of Basenjis.  The family also kept pedigree horses, goats and poultry and, while still in his teens, Glen became a partner in the "Afrika" kennel, which housed about 20 adult dogs.

After graduating from the University of Western Sydney with a Bachelor of Communication degree, in which he majored in both journalism and health communication, Glen emigrated to the UK and went to work at Dog World newspaper as an Editorial Assistant.  After working there for ten years, eight as Deputy Editor, he joined the Kennel Club as the Assured Breeder Scheme Officer at a time when the ABS was in its infancy and he was the only member of KC staff working full-time on the Scheme!  His current job title is that of ABS Manager and he has served as the secretary of the ABS Sub-group since its inception in 2010. 

He also served on a number of breed club committees but retired from this sort of work, as well as from KC membership, upon becoming a KC employee.  He was a delegate to the Advisory Council on the Welfare Issues of Dog Breeding working party which looked into the establishment of a single breeding standard.  Glen was approved to judge the hound and toy groups in his native Australia and is very proud to have judged at a number of premier hound and toydog shows throughout the world. 

He is approved by the KC to award Challenge Certificates in Basenjis, French Bulldogs and Dachshunds - three breeds in which his family has owned champions - and had the honour of judging Basenjis at Crufts in 2008.  He also has experience of living with the Whippet and Pekingese breeds.
