Dachshunds - week 26Updated : 21/06/2017

THE SUN certainly had his hat on for Border Union and the Miniature DC and fingers crossed will be with us for a while; we may even get a summer that lasts with three days where temperatures went over 30 degrees – this must be some kind of record! To my mind this must be the first time in years that  Border Union ...

Dachshunds - week 25Updated : 16/06/2017

THREE Counties started with sadness. Juliet Cooper had attracted a lovely entry of Min Smooths and the evening before the show it was announced that Min Smooths had a change of judge. I think most of us knew this was not a good sign as Juliet’s mother Eunice Steadman had not been well for some time.    ...

Dachshunds - week 24Updated : 07/06/2017

BY THE time these notes appear the UK will have had another general election and the results will be known to us all. The tragic events over the past few weeks have certainly destroyed many innocent lives and certainly have affected us all in many different ways. As I write these notes I’m travelling from Stafford to L...

Dachshunds - week 23Updated : 01/06/2017

IT WAS certainly a busy and, in many cases, a successful bank holiday weekend for many. The glorious sunshine that we experienced in the days leading up to the four shows in two days unfortunately didn’t last. However the rain didn’t dampen the spirits on Monday’s events and the whole atmosphere seemed to h...

Dachshunds - week 22Updated : 25/05/2017

OUR HEADLINES this week, Longhaired judging starts after 4pm at SKC (May) and The DC of Wales A2 assessment day cancelled due to lack of support! Both seem unbelievable but sadly are true. On a serious note though as I write these notes the shocking news that a pop concert at The Manchester Arena has been involved with a ter...

Dachshunds - week 21Updated : 19/05/2017

WITH THE spring bank holiday weekend looming it looks like a busy couple of days for Dachshunds. The Eastern Counties DA is holding its open show and secretary Minna Hagan reports a healthy entry of 127 dogs which includes seven not for competition. The individual figures are Longs seven, Min Longs 19, Smooth 19, Min Smooth ...

Dachshunds - week 20Updated : 11/05/2017

THE HARD working team at Birmingham National had obviously taken our comments from previous years on board as this year all Dachshund rings where all together in Bingley Hall and all within close proximity of each other, so it was easy to glance across to see all the judging through the six varieties. Although lucky enough t...

Dachshunds - week 19Updated : 03/05/2017

WELKS sees the outdoor season begin for many all breeds, but unfortunately not so for Longs and Min Longs. Many years ago both our varieties had classes and CCs on offer but sadly nothing for us now. For some time now the show has also fallen around the weekend of the Long Haired DC, but this year this was not so and indeed ...

Dachshunds - week 18Updated : 27/04/2017

AT TIMES it’s frustrating and disappointing for everyone when we have a change of judge at a show. This was certainly the case at The Longhaired Club championship show where under extremely sad circumstances we had two changes. Maureen Poole (Findowrie Min Longs) had withdrawn from judging Min Long dogs and BIS judge J...

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...
