A few weeks ago I featured John Charles Dollman’s picture of the famous 19th century English Setter, FT Ch Dash II, once owned by George Brewis, a founder member of the Kennel Club. It was one of the highlights in the dog section of Cheffins’...
This week's Dog World Comment WE ARE sure that readers will want to congratulate the team behind the UK’s new all-breeds best in show record holder, Ch Travella Striking Steel.
In the Dog House by Simon Parsons INTERESTING to get a number of different viewpoints on whether breed club committee members should show at the club’s shows.
The distaff line by Simon Parsons SOME MORE worthwhile achievements on the dam’s side of the pedigree...
A matter of timing by Simon Parsons I WAS watching a puppy dog class the other day and was delighted to see two exceptional youngsters in it. Both (one British-bred, one an import) had outstanding attributes and with average luck should surely have tremendous futures in the ring.
Something in return by Simon Parsons I THINK it’s always worth shouting about when dog people work or donate to ‘human’ good causes. As we have seen from the response to the Manchester Dog’s Home disaster, the public in general has an enormous well of goodwill towards dogs in their...
Breeders honoured by Simon Parsons FOR SOME years now the American Kennel Club has selected a ‘Breeder of the Year’ award, honouring those who have consistently produced quality and ‘are dedicated to excellence and the advancement of the purebred dog’.
RCC challenge by Simon Parsons SOMETIMES judges can’t win.
Little touches make a big difference by Geraldine Cove-Print I’ve read with great interest various commentators views on the declining entries at dog shows and wonder if it hasn’t all been said. I’m always up for a challenge so I thought I’d put in my three pence worth too!
Progressive clubs in Northern Norway by Andrew Brace It was probably 12 or so years ago that I last judged in Tromsø in the north of Norway. Since that time I became particularly fascinated by the town having been amazed by a BBC documentary featuring Joanna Lumley who...
Pug folk are bucking the trend by Sheila Atter Making my way back to the car park at Darlington the other week, I bumped into a friend who I haven’t spoken to for a little while and, as dog people always do, we spent a few minutes discussing the show world...
DAC never really had the clout by Kevin Colwill The announcement of the imminent demise of the Dog Advisory Council should come as no surprise. Ignore the face saving spin that its remit had run its course.
Trouble in the sendaway at Lauder by Wendy Beasley Trialists will always have reason to be grateful to land owners without whom our sport would be impossible, but this was brought very much home to us on our recent holiday in Scotland when we found ourselves initially with six dogs and nowhere to...
A trio of medals at World Championships by Becca Middleton THE International Mix and Breed Championships (IMCA) and ParAgility World Championships (PAWC) were held in Italy in Voghera.
A fine time for a late summer moult by Jane Lilley I have noticed at many recent shows that a number of dogs have suddenly and apparently inexplicably decided to cast their coats with a vengeance when their owners might be expecting them to grow them, or at least keep them, in preparation for the...
Monumental and majestic Mastiffs by Nick Waters This week I feature two large imposing statues of Mastiffs that grace the grounds of two country houses, Duncombe Park in England and Babelsberg Castle in Germany, designed and created as a little piece of England in Germany.
To snap or not to snap by Eileen Geeson Andrew Graham is always a source of inspiration; it is good to have such an active fan of the Grooming Box. To start with Andrew thought it may be interesting to discuss the use of snap-on comb attachments.
Routine treatment of worms by Steve Dean Worms were mentioned in passing last week and AVV has not focused on these parasites for some time. Worms are such a common infection in dogs that effective treatment is often taken for granted but occasionally a litter of pups crops up with the...
LightMagic TiO2 coated lightbulb by Geraldine Cove-Print When I come home from a few hours away from my house I’m sure I’m not the only dog owner who enters my abode taking in a good whiff from the air inside.
