Claire from Switzerland

Postby Claire » Wed Mar 27, 2013 3:06 pm

Hello !

I used to raise Show Bettas, from 1998 to 2009, but due to other activities, I've stopped breeding and I'm less active now in the Betta hobby.
My Betta related activities include:
- IBC certified judge since 2005;
- former member of the IBC judging board;
- president of the Swiss Betta Club;
- creator/administrator of the first and largest french language forum specialized in Bettas.

I live in Switzerland with Jean-Michel Jeannerat who has been breeding and showing Bettas for more than 20 years.
He is also an IBC judge, and we travel every year to several countries in Area 2 to judge shows and help train apprentice judges.

My true passion is dogs, I love trick training and competing in Agility.

If anyone is interested, this is our personal website:

And here are my videos of shows in different european countries:

- IBC Judging Board Area 2 representative
- President of Swiss Betta Club (chapter of IBC)

Hello Claire great to have you as part of the IBC and the IBC forums you have great experience with both bettas and the IBC and I loved reading about it. Thank you for sharing with us for those of us who do not know you as much.
