Mr Gavin Robertson

Gavin Robertson is a dog boarding kennel and cattery owner who has been a dog breeder and exhibitor for over 25 years.  Gavin's kennel name is Soletrader and he is proud to be an Assured Breeder Scheme member and holder of the ABS Accolade of Excellence. 

In 2013, Gavin handled the Best in Show winner at Crufts, the Petit Basset GriffonVendéen, Ch Soletrader Peek A Boo ("Jilly"), whom he bred in partnership with his wife Sara.  As a direct result of Jilly's win, Gavin has taken part in a number of charitable events, among them Jilly's Jolly Jaunt, a nationwide walk which raised thousands of pounds for the Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital and other charities.

As a dedicated, passionate breeder with health and welfare being of the utmost importance, Gavin takes his role on the ABS Sub-group extremely seriously.  "It is important to me that fellow breeders all do the very best in improving standards of animal husbandry, habituation and provide the correct informed data to give to potential and future puppy buyers", says Gavin.
