Malcolm Presland

Malcolm was brought up with Bull Terriers and Boxers and after he left home kept Boxers which he bred but only lightly exhibited. He bought his first Bulldog in 1983 but was unable to seriously campaign anything until the early 1990’s due to work commitments when he founded the Kofyn kennel with Melanie Vincent.

They soon made up their first Bulldog champion, they have also bred CC and RCC winners in the UK and champion, CACIB & CAC winners in Europe.  Miniature Bullterriers were added to the kennel in 2000 and they have bred champions in these as well as owning one of the UK’s top MBT’s of all time Ch / Ir. Ch Badlesmere Brabazon in Kofyn (10 CC’s) his daughter Ch White Eyed and Legless in Kofyn (5CC’s) and her daughter Ch Kofyn Kandy Krush (5 CC’s) and have won group placings at championship shows and a FCI group 1 with the Miniatures.  The latest champion to be crowned in the Kofyn kennel is the guard dog – the Australian Cattle Dog – Dani!

Malcolm awards CCs in Bulldogs which he has judged in Europe many times and in America 3 times, and also Miniature Bull Terriers and Bullterriers. He was honored to judge the Miniatures at Silverwood in 2018 and has judged both Bullterriers and Miniature Bullterriers many times in Europe. I am very much looking forward to this most prestigious appointment.
