Mr. Stefan Stefik
Štefan Štefík, of Bratislava, Slovakia, is president of the Slovak Kennel Club and a member of the FCI board of directors.
He acquired his first hunting dog, a wirehaired Dachshund, in 1980. He has since become one of his country’s leading exhibitor-judges of Dachshunds, both in the show ring and field trials.
Mr. Štefík is chairman of the Slovakian Dachshund Club, president of the Slovak Dachshund Breeding Club, and president of Sloval Hunting Cynology Organization. As a breeder-exhibitor, his dogs have won many important FCI titles in the ring and field. He had the only dog in Slovakian history to achieve the Beauty Champion title and an FCI International Trial championship.
Mr. Štefík has judged at the World Show, the European Dog Show, and other major venues in just about every corner of the world where dog shows are held, from Budapest to Buenos Aires, and from Portugal to Puerto Rico. This year, he makes his AKC/Eukanuba debut.
