IT IS FASCINATING to look back on the last time a Kennel Club member was expelled – or at least the last time it took place in the full glare of publicity. At the time it was stated that this was the first time this had happened.
FOR YEARS Mouscron show in Belgium attracted more and more dogs until it was no longer safe. A limit was therefore set, of around 2,000 dogs per weekend.
Every March the Kennel Club runs two weekends dedicated to training pointing breeds – or perhaps I should say training the owners of pointing breeds – to work on grouse moors.
