Belgian Shepherd Dogs, Groenendael - week 26Updated : 22/06/2017

NORBEL held its annual ch show at the super venue of Thompsons House Equestrian Centre. The weather was fabulous with cloudless blue skies and the sun blazing, but it was rather warm for the dogs with little shade.      Lynda McNamara (Kehala) judged our variety with Debbie Pennistone-Fleming (Ailort) ju...

Belgian Shepherd Dogs, Groenendael - week 25Updated : 16/06/2017

THE WEATHER was atrocious at Three Counties which was such a shame as the showground is set in beautiful surroundings but the views couldn’t be enjoyed in the horrid conditions. The rain and strong winds meant that breed specialist Babs Robinson had to judge the six dogs and 13 bitches inside. That certainly didn&rsquo...

Belgian Shepherd Dogs, Groenendaels - week 24Updated : 08/06/2017

IT IS WELL known that entries have dramatically declined over the years and this was certainly the case at Southern Counties. There were just three bitches present for German judge Siegfried Peter to assess. Quite amazing considering that this is a Crufts qualifier. That was quite irrelevant to Pam and Dave Randall as their ...

Belgian Shepherd Dogs, Groenendael - week 23Updated : 02/06/2017

BATH IS probably the best show of the season being held in such glorious countryside by a very well organised and efficient committee and team. From the moment of arrival to leaving the grounds the ever smiling ex-Ghurka’s (with their impeccable manners) staff the car park giving assistance when needed, inside the show...

Belgian Shepherd Dogs, Groenendael - week 22Updated : 26/05/2017

THE FIRST SKC show saw specialist Steve Atkinson judge the seven dogs and ten bitches presented for assessment; there were six absentees. It was a very long and arduous journey crossing through four different countries for last year’s top dog, but it proved to be very fruitful. Paul, Jean and Kelly Lawless’ Ch/Ir...

Belgian Shepherd Dogs, Groenendael - week 21Updated : 18/05/2017

THE KUCBH (Belgian BSD club) held its speciality show at Gerpinnes with the well known Italian Emmanuel Boriero assessing our variety. There were a few exhibits from the UK attending and they included the six-year-old Ch Xanova Mist Maiden (s.r. Verlaine Del Alta Via ex Multi Ch X Femme Noir). Rumer has a super tally of succ...

Belgian Shepherd Dogs, Groenendael - week 20Updated : 12/05/2017

AT LAST – our show season has kicked off for real with the first general championship show offering CCs for our variety. Unfortunately I couldn’t go to the National and there were five other absentees so judge Rodney Oldham had 13 dogs and 11 bitches to assess.      DCC and BOB was five year ...

Belgian Shepherd Dogs, Groenendael - week 19Updated : 05/05/2017

THERE were no classes for our variety at WELKS, but that didn’t stop Kris Malinowski from making the long journey from Glasgow to Malvern with her super bitch Ch Furious Fuschia du Bois du Tôt. Six-year-old FF seems to be getting even better with age (as if that was possible!) and Howard Ogden certainly thought s...

Belgian Shepherd Dogs, Groenendael - week 18Updated : 27/04/2017

THE LATEST Kennel Club Journal has been published and it states that Trevor Wheeler will be judging all three varieties with CCs at NWPB in 2018; Robin Newhouse will be our variety’s judge at the National in 2019 so make a note in your diary. I will include a list of next year’s known judges in the BSDA autumn ne...

Belgian Shepherd Dogs, Groenendael - week 17Updated : 24/04/2017

BEV HALL and her super Spy (Ch Ailort Inspyre) have recorded yet more success in the agility world. Spy is in G7, which is the pinnacle, and had a marvellous day at the Dog Vegas event held on Good Friday. He had three clear rounds and gained a third place in G7 (combined heights) so now has enough points to have qualified f...

Belgian Shepherd Dogs, Groenendaels - week 16Updated : 13/04/2017

SHOW ENTRIES are coming in thick and fast now as the season picks ups pace and this can leave the bank balance seriously depleted! The Norbel ch show will be held at Thompson House Equestrian Centre, near Standish. Lynda McNamara will judge our variety with Debbie Penistone-Fleming judging BIS.      Back...

Belgian Shepherd Dogs, Groenendael - week 15Updated : 06/04/2017

THE BSDA held its first open show of the year at Tomlinson’s Dog Centre where French breed specialist Joel Jouannet judged our variety. Tanya Thompson was supposed to be judging BIS but had to withdraw following her knee replacement surgery so dad John stepped in for her.      Joel found his BB and...

Belgian Shepherd Dogs, Groenendaels - week 14Updated : 30/03/2017

THERE has been a good entry for the BSDA spring show with a total of 70 entries with Joel Joannett having 27 Groenendaels to assess. I will publish the results in next week’s notes.      Redditch is holding an open show with classes for all four varieties, Shane Church will be judging. NW/PB ch sho...

Belgian Shepherd Dogs, Groenendael - week 13Updated : 23/03/2017

THE SHOW season is now picking up pace and there have been more super results for our variety. At Pontypridd Kay Morris’ seven month old Cairbar Dream Weaver was BP NSC and PG1 under Caroline Friend Rees. Dakota has only attended three shows and been placed in the group at each one.      The Irish ...

Belgian Shepherd Dogs, Groenendael - week 12Updated : 17/03/2017

AFTER a three month break our championship show season kicked started back into action at Crufts where Irish judge Jean Lawless (Revloch) judged the 14 dogs and 21 bitches present for assessment, there were eight absentees. It was a slightly lower than normal entry but obviously no Revloch bred dogs permitted to enter. All o...

Belgian Shepherd Dogs, Groenendael - week 11Updated : 08/03/2017

WELL, THAT’S it for another year. Crufts is over with utter joy for some and disappointment for others. Regardless of the results we all know that we took the best dogs home with us. These notes were written before Crufts started so the results will be in the next edition.      Show entries are com...

Belgian Shepherd Dogs, Groenendael - week 10Updated : 01/03/2017

THERE have been more excellent results for our variety at open shows recently as well as at shows in Europe. At Cheltenham Pam Jameson’s 18-month-old Xanova Paint It Black (Haslan du Pays des Sept Vallees ex Ch Xanova Mist Maiden) won BOB from Celia Vines and was awarded G3 under Mike Vines.      A...

Belgian Shepherd Dogs, Groenendael - week 9Updated : 24/02/2017

THE BSDA will be holding a judging seminar with breed specific exams at Brailes Village Hall, OX15 5AS (which is near Banbury) on June 25. It is a club requirement that all potential judges attend a seminar and pass the exam before being placed on the judging lists so this event is a must.      Current j...

Belgian Shepherd Dogs, Groenendael - week 8Updated : 17/02/2017

IT WAS A DREAM debut for six-month-old Cairbar Dream Weaver when he attended his first show at Swansea as he won both BP and BOB under Sandy Lipman. Breeder-owner Kay Morris was over the moon when he was awarded G4 and PG3 and is probably still floating back down to earth – wow!      Dakota is from...

Belgian Shepherd Dogs, Groenendael - week 6Updated : 02/02/2017

IT IS A quiet time of year as not many shows have scheduled classes for our variety, but there are usually AVNSC classes available.      Valerie Oatley and Bob Haberer’s 11-month-old Hungarian import Tosca de L’Ambassadeur des Belges entered one such class at Buckinghamshire CS and obviously ...
