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...

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.

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