My name is Arjen van Gastel.
42 years old and living with my girlfriend in Schijndel, The Netherlands.
I have a daughter of 2 years old and 5 dogs: 3 Border Collies and 2 Welsh Corgi's.
I started in Agility in 1993 with my first dog: a Munsterlander.
After my first dog I started with Border collies. At the moment I compete with my Border Collie in the third grade.
I started judging competitions in the Netherlands in 2004 and in 2009 I was promoted to be an International judge.
In 2009, on the European Open which was also held in the Netherlands I judged the contacts in the finals. Since then I have judged a lot of AWC qualifications on national and international level.
