THE EURASIER is to transfer from the imported register to the breed register from April 1 next year.
DOG WORLD’s breed correspondent Stacey Watkins (Albionspitz) said it was the culmination of nine years’ hard work on the part of Eurasier enthusiasts.
"It’s been a landmark year for the Eurasier in the UK,” she said. "The positive part of it is the news that we can move from the imported breed register.
"The UK’s provisional Eurasier Club sent a very large dossier to the Kennel Club when we made our application as it was felt the time was right for the Eurasier to progress into its own class and off imported register.
"We do hope that judges will be aware that Eurasier can be reserved toward strangers and are not always keen on being judged. They are a breed which needs a kind, thoughtful judge who understands their reserved nature, as well as having a good knowledge of the breed Standard.
"Our club will be holding a judging seminar next year which we hope will allow people to see the English Eurasier in a positive and clear way.”
The Eurasier Society has been holding seminars for the last couple of years and compiling a Judges' List, as required by the Kennel Club in the anticipation of such an event.
