Pyrenean Mountain Dogs - week 26Updated : 21/06/2017

SITTING writing up these notes trying to keep cool in this heatwave we are having. I’m not a sun worshipper; it’s just too much for me. The dogs are coping okay; they seem to be sensible and not exerting too much energy and sleeping most of the day.       Sue Riley, one of our exhibitors...

Pyrenean Mountain Dogs - week 24Updated : 07/06/2017

A BUSY time starting now, with shows coming in most weekends. At Southern Counties there were no CCs on offer, but we get them back next year.      This show seems to always get a decent entry without CCs. Our judge was Tim Ball and his main winners were: BD and BOB was Kenyon and Ward’s Ch Charibe...

Pyrenean Mountain Dogs - week 23Updated : 31/05/2017

WE HAD a heatwave all week before Bath, hoping that the weather would hold as this show is prone to heavy storms, and on the day it was sunshine all the way. Our judge was Robin Searle and we were first in the ring with 38 entries and three absent.      DCC and BOB was Kenyon and Ward’s Ch Chariber...

Pyrenean Mountain Dogs - week 19Updated : 03/05/2017

I’M SURE you will have all seen on the front of DOG WORLD about the Kennel Club introducing a new framework for the education and progress of new judges.

Pyrenean Mountain Dogs - week 14Updated : 30/03/2017

SOME SHOW news to report on. The PMDC of Scotland open show, held at Biggar, never attracts the biggest of entries, more so because of its geography. This is always a well run show with a committee that pull out all the stops and always make you very welcome.      The judge was Alyson King. BB and BIS wa...

Pyrenean Mountain Dogs - week 12Updated : 15/03/2017

CRUFTS – well it’s all over for another year. Pyreneans were on the Sunday. I like this day as it’s an easier journey, but more public at the show and trying to get around the halls after judging was proving a battle if you had a dog that seemed to be going against the flow. There were lots of stands to see...

Pyrenean Mountain Dogs - week 9Updated : 22/02/2017

AT THE PMDC of GB champ show our judge was specialist Howard Tonks. Howard has had Pyreneans for nearly 50 years now.
