This week's Dog World Comment WE ARE quite sure that all our readers will share the same feelings following the fire at Manchester Dogs’ Home last week which took the lives of more than 50 dogs.

‘Yes’ vote implications by Simon Parsons DEPENDING on whether you read DOG WORLD online or in the traditional format, the Scottish independence referendum will either be decided or under way.
Breeding expertise by Simon Parsons DID YOU see the episode of our TV programme Around The Dog World dealing with the National Working and Pastoral Breeds show? If not you can catch up with it on YouTube.
Working trial life by Simon Parsons IT’S ALWAYS good to hear from people who have been involved with both show and working dogs. One such is Rosie Lane whose Chaanrose Dobermanns and Basenjis have included many breed champions, plus Dobes with working trial awards; indeed one...
Great champions and hair splitting decisions at The City by Andrew Brace It was a joy to judge the Eukanuba champion and the Higham Press veteran stakes at the City of Birmingham which saw David Bell properly in harness as the new secretary and he seems to have taken over from Keith and June Young seamlessly, with the...
Not in the ‘business’ of breeding by Sheila Atter It seems that the inevitable reaction to any new announcement about changes to the Assured Breeder Scheme is a prolonged debate via the social media about the alleged shortcomings of the scheme.
