James has been a part of the dog food world for over 40 years and started Judge’s Choice Petfood Ltd in 1991. In 1996, he was proud to be bestowed the Royal Warrant for the Queen which the company has held ever since. James enjoys catching up with customers, many of whom have been with Judge’s Choice for years and who have in, turn, become very good friends.
James has had many dogs in his lifetime all with different characters and traits. He remembers with fondness Duncan, his Border Collie who enjoyed chasing balls and eating cheese! He is currently Grandfather to Buster, a 2 year old show Cocker Spaniel who has a penchant for long walks, cuddles and the smell of pheasant!
In his spare time, James enjoys fishing and is currently introducing his Grandchildren to the art of fly fishing. They are still learning that fish have ears and that quiet and patience is the order of the day!!
