Belgian Shepherd Dogs, Laekenois - week 25Updated : 14/06/2017

WINDSOR will be in full flow as this paper lands on your mat. We have no classes and I am not aware of any Laeken entered in AVNSC. I am exhibiting my Griffons, but am going back on pastoral day to steward, so maybe see some of you there. It’s a beautiful summer’s evening as I write these notes, so I hope the goo...

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

WELL, EVEN though the classification is not great for us at the champ shows, I am sure many of you do some open shows. The agility season is in full swing I believe, then there is rally, heelwork to music, obedience, working trials etc. We may not be great in numbers and that is why I really need your support and input for t...

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

NO NEWS this week so some ramblings from my Crufts experience. During the duration of Crufts I am lucky enough to stay in a local hotel with my best mate.

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

VERY SAD news to start with. Jan Ralph has lost the lovely Van de Baarbeekhoeve Brizo for Bonvivant (Brizo) just three days short of her 15th birthday.
