Dachshunds - week 17Updated : 19/04/2017

THE NATIONAL has attracted some decent entry figures for our varieties. Longs have 40 dogs, Min Long 89, Smooth 40 and Min Smooth top the lot at 103 dogs. Looking through the schedule I see the society is once again holding many educational events including points of the dog and ring procedure over the four days.  &nbs...

Dachshunds - week 16Updated : 12/04/2017

THE MIDLAND DC recently held a well-attended AGM, which ran smoothly and resulted in some changes in office. The club’s new secretary is Daniel Roberts (contact details below) with a new treasurer Helen Walters (Ralines Min Longs). Ian Smith (Salixian Wires) was officially voted in as chairman and former long term secr...

Dachshunds - week 15Updated : 05/04/2017

THE FIRST of two weekends in a row heading far north where at each event both our varieties had CCs on offer. The Scottish Dachshund Club held a very well run championship show with a good finish time to get everyone on their way home. The Swann Centre at Berwick-Upon-Tweed is now a well-established home for the club and I h...

Dachshunds - week 14Updated : 30/03/2017

WITHOUT the use of a crystal ball our breed clubs have little insight to the future of there shows. What they do have is the confirmed Kennel Club CC allocation for 2020. The KC has agreed that the allocation should be based on 2019 subject to changes due to clubs on rotations. The general championship CC allocation remains ...

Dachshunds - week 13Updated : 23/03/2017

TWO OF our Yorkshire clubs held their open shows. West Riding Dachshund on the Saturday and East Yorkshire Dachshund on the Sunday. The West Riding open show and AGM was held at the Speedwell Rooms, Chesterfield and had a good entry & they received good feedback from the exhibitors. All Standards were judged by Johnny M...

Dachshunds - week 13Updated : 22/03/2017

WITH TWO breed clubs holding their open shows over one weekend it gave many a chance to relax and enjoy getting their youngsters out in preparation for the year ahead. From what I hear both the West Riding DA and the East Yorkshire DC had some very good entries and supplied the best in homemade refreshments which is always a...

Dachshunds - week 12Updated : 20/03/2017

HOPE ALL of you who went to Crufts had an enjoyable day. I was sorry not to have been there but with a husband who has not been well these last four months and puppies at a stage where they needed attention, and the fact that I was worn out, it was just impossible for me to attend.      I am told it was ...

Dachshunds - week 12Updated : 15/03/2017

ON THE eve of Crufts I was lucky enough to attend The Pawscars awards as a finalist in the breed note writer category, thanks to you lovely people for your nomination. The overall winner was Adam Chappell who writes the Great Dane breed notes in Dog World which I read with interest every week and has done so much to support ...

Dachshunds - week 11Updated : 07/03/2017

BY NOW I’m sure you will all be recovering from the long day we had at Crufts. For many intrepid people this included a repeat visit on another day. It certainly takes its toll (or maybe I’m just starting to feel old!), but at the end of the day there really is no other show like it and the buzz and excitement is...

Dachshunds - week 10Updated : 02/03/2017

AT THE DC open show Min Smooths were judged by Sharon Broad and Sue and Jason Hunt’s Ch Carpaccio Blithe Spirit won BOB and Carpaccio Scarlet O’Hara was BP, and later RBPIS under Caroline Friend -Rees. Peter Protheroes Min Smooth Royal maple Anky Panky was BOS.      Smooths were judged by Kev...

Dachshunds - week 10Updated : 02/03/2017

THE ARRIVAL of the latest Kennel Gazette gives us some confirmed judges through to the end of 2019. Clearly some societies are very organised. A few date changes too and some new venues with the start of the extra all breed shows in 2019. At the SDA 2018 Longs will be judged by Sue Holt (Waldeister Min Wires) and Min Longs L...

Dachshunds - week 9Updated : 23/02/2017

THROUGH the joys of the internet we were able to see some of the Dachshund breed judging from Westminster. I have to confess at not being very clever when it comes down to anything technical, alas I missed the live streaming but through a very easy to navigate website I did enjoy watching our American friends in action in th...

Dachshunds - week 8Updated : 16/02/2017

AT A RECENT Dachshund Club committee meeting the club’s annual awards were decided. The famous Jackdaw Trophy for the outstanding Dachshund in 2016 has been awarded to Morris and Judith Armstrong’s Smooth Ch Lauralee Nicholas Nickleby who was also awarded the Friedl Cup for top Smooth male. The Amyass Biss and Bo...

Dachshunds - week 7Updated : 10/02/2017

ANDREA Callow (Garthorne Min Smooths) was the judge that decided the main awards at a very chilly DC of Wales championship show which once again was held at Cwmbran Stadium. After being awarded his third CC in our variety, Lesley McNaughton’s Long Cedavoch The Alchemist was awarded BIS with Kim and Duncan McCalmont&rsq...

Dachshunds - week 6Updated : 02/02/2017

BOTH OUR varieties had a good day at The Northern Longhaired Dachshund Breeders Association open show in one of club’s best numerical entries for some time. Liz Garlick (Ranglewood Longs) and Fay Hutchings (Collidach Dachshunds and Smooth Collies) were the breed judges. BIS judge Dawn Norton (Halunke Min Longs) awarded...

Dachshunds - week 5Updated : 26/01/2017

THIS TIME of year it seems to be all or nothing when it comes to canine activities. With Manchester and the Dachshund of the Year just two days apart both being held in the Midlands it proved a hectic few days for some.      Thankfully the weather was with us on both occasions making travelling bearable....

Dachshunds - week 4Updated : 20/01/2017

FURTHER to the breakdown of top wins 2016 in the Smooths/Min Smooth, two other notable wins to mention are Sue and Jason Hunt’s Smooth Ch Sontag Shanda Leah two CCs with BOB at Crufts and RBIS at the Dachshund of Wales ch show, and Andrea Callow’s Min Smooth Garthorne Miss Toffee with two CC and one RCC.  &...

Dachshunds - week 4Updated : 18/01/2017

WITH SNOWDROPS starting to appear you would think that the glimmer of spring is with us, but how wrong could we be? Most of the country has now seen the first snowfall of the winter with much more to come, I’m sure. The horrible persistant rain and damp is with us, which makes life even more difficult for two and four-...

Dachshunds - week 3Updated : 11/01/2017

ALTHOUGH both of our varieties have to wait until February at the DC of Wales to have our first sets of CCs on offer for this year, both Boston and Manchester have blessed us with generous non-CC classifications. Certainly both societies have been rewarded with very good entries. Of course both shows, although not having CC ...

Dachshunds - week 2Updated : 05/01/2017

OUR 2017 show calendar is looking quite complete now for judges and dates. Another year where both our varieties have a fair share of specialist and non specialist (all rounder) judges. The following list has Long judges followed by Min Long judges where both are available. A lot of weekday shows for our varieties this year ...
