Canaan Dogs - week 20Updated : 12/05/2017

CONTINUING on from last week, a brief explanation of the Standard – Eyes: Dark, almond-shaped and obliquely set with black rims. Everything about a Canaan Dog’s construction has to do with fitness for function, which in the case of a Canaan Dog is fitness for survival. The dark eye colour and the black rims help ...

Canaan Dogs - week 19Updated : 04/05/2017

AS IN A number of other breeds, entries of Canaans at the shows have gone down. It is very difficult to find people who are willing to show their Canaan Dogs and when you lose any exhibitors, there is no one else to step into their place at the moment. Because our numbers are not great to begin with, any decrease has a big i...

JULIE Hughes confided that sometimes during 2016 when showing her ‘Tiras’ (Anacan Future Legend), who is now 11 years young, the judge would ask how old he was, and when she said ten years they would look at her as if to say “why are you showing such an old dog?”, instead of “wow, he moves and l...

Canaan Dogs - week 12Updated : 15/03/2017

CRUFTS 2017 was certainly a memorable one. We had the largest foreign entry in Canaan Dogs to-date – 8 of the 16 entries. Six came from France and two came from Israel, and four of the foreign dogs were Israeli champions.      As usual it was a very long day with 67 Schnauzers and 94 Keeshonds sche...

Canaan Dogs - week 10Updated : 02/03/2017

CONGRATULATIONS are in order for Martin Moulding, who has informed me that his puppy bitch Torefjell’s Rubin (Rubi) has earned her Good Citizen Bronze award. I think this is a worthy accomplishment, especially for such a young dog, and shows responsible ownership to the public.       The Canaa...

Canaan Dogs - week 5Updated : 27/01/2017

MANCHESTER is the first show of the year with classes for Canaan Dogs, so it was eagerly anticipated by those few of us who are showing. Our judge, Jane Lilley, drew an entry of seven with Martin Moulding’s two absent as his new puppy bitch import had come into season.      BD and BP was Ivan Kaye,...

Canaan Dogs - week 3Updated : 12/01/2017

I TRUST that you all had a lovely Christmas and I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of you a happy, healthy and blessed new year!

Canaan Dogs - week 50Updated : 12/12/2016

THE NORDIC show was the first show to put on classes for Canaan Dogs in the UK so we do try to support it. This year’s judge was Barbara Gold (Amicitia), a long-time Canaan Dog owner. She drew a respectable entry of six dogs with all present. BOB was my Caiser Samorodok at Anacan from the junior class. RBOB went to my ...

Canaan Dogs - week 46Updated : 10/11/2016

A FEW months back I told you about Myrna Shiboleth’s upcoming eviction from her home of 46 years in Shaar Hagai, Israel. Well Myrna did have to leave the premises and go into rented accommodation for a short time. Then on the Nov 2 she made a move to Tordenaso, Italy. I understand she is sharing the house with Italian ...

Canaan Dogs - week 44Updated : 27/10/2016

THE CDC of the UK once again had a booth at the Kennel Club Discover Dogs at the ExCel Centre, I believe for the 19th year in a row. Martin Moulding and his ‘Moshe’, along with Julie Hughes and her ‘Tiras’ were there on the Saturday to let people meet a Canaan Dog, most likely for the first time, and ...

Canaan Dogs - week 42Updated : 14/10/2016

IT WAS lovely to see Julie Hughes’ and her Anacan Future Legend (Tiras) at South Wales. Julie’s busy schedule precludes her from attending many shows these days. Our judge, Tom Mather, who has judged Canaan Dogs many times over the last decade or so, is always a pleasure to go under as he is very good with the do...

Canaan Dogs - week 40Updated : 30/09/2016

DARLINGTON is always so well run and organised, so Richard and I were very disappointed that not only did we not get into the ring anytime near the 12.45pm slot printed in the schedule, but around 3.00pm it was announced that Canaan Dogs would be judged in a different ring than scheduled and we were to get there ‘immed...

Canaan Dogs - week 36Updated : 01/09/2016

IN APRIL the American Kennel Club (AKC) adopted changes to its Canine Legislation Position Statements related to spaying and castrating: “The AKC Board of Directors, when considering the changes, took into account recent scientific studies that found that sterilising a dog, particularly before it has fully matured, can...

Canaan Dogs - week 35Updated : 26/08/2016

RICHARD and I were very fortunate both with the weather and traffic (or lack of) both on the long journey to WKC and back home again. Ernie Patterson drew an entry of six with two absentees.       BD and BOB was our Anacan Issachar (Izzy). BB was our A Glory Road (Phoebe). BP and RBD was our ten a...

CONGRATULATIONS to Canaan Dog owners, Ed and Rachel Gray, on the arrival of their newest family member, baby Scarlett Erin, born a few weeks early on June 18.

Canaan Dogs - week 26Updated : 24/06/2016

THERE are no shows with classes during June, so it has been a bit of a quiet month news-wise. However I had a phone call from Martin Moulding, who owns Anacan Abu Ghosh (Moshe) who had some delightful news for me. Martin will be bringing into the country two new puppy bitches – one from Norway and another from France. ...

Canaan Dogs - week 23Updated : 06/06/2016

WE WERE blessed with good weather this past bank holiday Monday which made our long drive to Bath and our day there quite pleasant. There were five Canaan Dogs entered under Swedish judge, Dan Ericsson – my four and Julie Hughes’ Anacan Future Legend (Tiras), and all were present.      BD w...
