Australian Cattle Dogs - week 9Updated : 22/02/2017

NATIONAL W/PBS open show had 14 Cattle Dogs entered for Rob Greenhill, with sadly a few absentees, which is always a shame. BOB was Ms K Birch’s Downriver Free Spirit. BP was Ms K Jebson’s Austmans Doppler Effect. Following on their PG4 at this show last year Kylie and Spree went on to take G4 this year!  &...

Australian Cattle Dogs - week 7Updated : 07/02/2017

NO UK SHOW results to report on, but ACDs seem to be doing well abroad. Connie Redhead (Landmaster) has a new baby puppy in the show ring. Landmaster Tupelo Blues aka ‘Dude’ went to Adelaide Hills to a group of three shows in one weekend. He apparently took baby puppy in group at all three so should have quite a ...

Australian Cattle Dogs - week 6Updated : 01/02/2017

I WAS PLEASED to hear that John Platt’s bitch, Bronte, aka Boo, is recovering well after a very scary experience in their new home in Australia. Although there is no way of confirming, it seems highly likely from what is known that Boo had a too close for comfort encounter with a Cane Toad.      Jo...

Australian Cattle Dogs - week 5Updated : 26/01/2017

IT WAS a bitterly cold day for Manchester, with no CCs, with Graham Hill judging, but it was an interesting day out.      Six dog puppies and four bitch puppies entered – the biggest puppy entry we have had for some time. Sadly there were absentees, but still nice to see a selection of youngsters i...

Australian Cattle Dogs - week 3Updated : 11/01/2017

HAPPY new year, a new calendar already filling up with things to do. Training classes, shows and dog social outings. Now is the time to start preparing if you are intending doing any sort of competitions this year with your dog. It’s no good deciding the week before that you will start work. Whether breed show or &lsqu...

Australian Cattle Dogs - week 51Updated : 13/12/2016

DEC 3 saw the Kennel Club hold a heat for the new Obreedience competition which was demonstrated at Crufts last year and run as a competition this year. Teams of four dogs of one breed compete in heelwork, go to bed, drop on recall, retrieve and a scent exercise. The participants are meant to work as a team and all four comp...

Australian Cattle Dogs - week 49Updated : 30/11/2016

I HAD AN interesting day at the Kennel Club breed watch education day, held at the new and amazing Guide Dogs National Breeding Centre in Warwickshire. The ACDS of GB almost seemed to live in Tollgate House for many years; we had so many AGMs and committee meetings there as well as numerous temperament testing sessions with ...

Australian Cattle Dogs - week 48Updated : 22/11/2016

EDWINSTOWE open show had classes for Cattle Dogs. The judge was Steve Myring (Fortezza) and his BOB and BP was Miss K Jebson’s Austmans Doppler Effect. Snoop went on to PG1 and BPIS. A good day out for him!      I was interested to see that there were 35 registrations for Cattle Dogs in the third...

Australian Cattle Dogs - week 47Updated : 15/11/2016

W/PB OF SCOTLAND had Mrs K Angier (Bilyara) judging Cattle Dogs. She found her BD and BOB in Ms M and Mr K Slaven and Wilkie’s Ir Ch Yarraman Frankl for Dartbrook. RBD was Ms E Knight’s Bryndingo Bleiddion.      BB went to Mrs D, J A, E M and A Colton, Tune, Bonser and Hardy’s Rottalm...

Australian Cattle Dogs - week 45Updated : 02/11/2016

MIDLAND Counties had no ACD classes, but I hear there were a couple in AVNSC. Albert Wight gave second in OB and RBB to Mr K J and Mrs N P Digby’s Ch/Am Ch Kurpas Saving Grace is Yarramans.      There are a couple of open shows coming up with cattle dog classes. I know time and travel costs mean ...

Australian Cattle Dogs - week 44Updated : 27/10/2016

MANY THANKS to Bob Murrell for organising the rota for Discover Dogs at London’s ExCel. A minor issue this year with some of ‘the usual suspects’ being unavailable for one reason or another. However the booth was fully manned for both days and sterling work was done by handlers and dogs meeting the public a...

Australian Cattle Dogs - week 43Updated : 19/10/2016

I HAVE just received a schedule for Wath and West Melton open show. It is to be held on March 4, 2017 at Newark and Notts Agricultural Showground. Sadly, despite the very advance notice, I already have a prior engagement that day, so will not be there. For the first time, they have three Cattle Dog classes with judge Kevin Y...

Australian Cattle Dogs - week 42Updated : 12/10/2016

ALL OF a sudden we seem to have dark evenings and mornings and our show calendar is almost empty. There are still one or two events involving Cattle Dogs though.      SWKA, with no CCs, had an entry of nine with two absent for Rebecca Kaye. She found her BD, BOB and BP in Miss K Jebson’s Austmans...

Australian Cattle Dogs - week 41Updated : 04/10/2016

I’M STILL catching up on reading the papers from when I was away.      John Stevenson has misunderstood my comment on BAER testing and Dalmatians. It was not suggested that Dalmatian enthusiasts were not BAER testing; I am well aware that the vast majority of breeders do this and have done so sin...

Australian Cattle Dogs - week 32Updated : 02/08/2016

I WAS SO terribly sorry to hear that Kimberly Jebson has lost the lovely Kiwi (Ch Austmans Spirit Of The Wild) so suddenly and unexpectedly. She did well in the show ring, but I am told was also a super dog to have around at home. She will live on through her progeny, but that is probably little consolation at this moment in...
