Antonio La Barbera - Italy

I live in Palermo, main city of Sicily: the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea; where I was born 51 years ago. Since I am a hunter, hunting dogs have always been my main interest; especially pointing dogs and the Cirneco dell’Etna, a dog originating from my homeland.
I got my first hunting license when I was 19 years old and my first dog was half-breed dog, later I had a Cirneco and a Brittany (also known as: Epagneul Breton). The latter breed has deeply involved me and I became a FCI recognized breeder under the suffix “del Limoncello”. Recently I’ve started breeding French pointing dogs, Pyrenean type too and I have proclaimed Italian Beauty, Field Trial and Dual Champions with both breeds’ subjects.
I have been an ENCI(Italian Kennel Club)/FCI dog show judge for the groups 4th, 5th, 7th, 8th, 10th and a field-trial judge for pointing dogs, I’ve judged in Italy, France, Poland, Russia and Germany.
