This week's Dog World Comment NOTHING much more needs to be said about the events of the first day of Manchester where there was so much confusion as to whether the change to the ‘beaten dog’ regulation had come into force or not. Eventually the sensible solution was reached...
In the Dog House by Simon Parsons IF YOU are a member, associate or affiliate of the Kennel Club, you should by now have received from Dr Helen Watts of the University of Worcester a copy of the questionnaire which is part of a research project into ‘the attitudes towards, and the...
Close matings by Simon Parsons SOME YEARS ago now the Kennel Club decided to forbid breeders from registering the progeny of father to daughter, mother to son or full brother to sister matings.
Unapologetic by Simon Parsons I DON’T really know what to say about the extraordinary events of the first day of Manchester. Sheila Atter has covered the situation fully in her column so perhaps the less I say the better.
Start times by Simon Parsons LET’S ASSUME that, as we all hope, there will be now more interest in the variety classes at the championship shows, with more exhibitors, having entered, actually prepared to participate.
Dandie days out by Simon Parsons EVER since we all began to be concerned about the plight of the ‘vulnerable’ native breeds, I have been impressed by the efforts of various Dandie Dinmont Terrier enthusiasts to raise public consciousness about their historic and delightful breed.
Christmas congestion in Rome by Andrew Brace It was a flying visit to Rome for their one-day International Championship show which was being held on the Saturday before Christmas. I flew into Fiumicino airport via Amsterdam and on arrival met up with Italian judge Anna Albrigo...
Suspended or not suspended? By Sheila Atter You couldn’t write the script for this one if you tried. The announcement that, as from Jan 1, the unbeaten dog rule would be suspended was greeted with almost universal approval, and many were the comments at Boston about the...
Not enough use of training classes by Kevin Colwill Finding the positives in late January can be quite challenge. There’s only a big credit card bill to remind me of the Christmas festivities and the renewal of spring is still a long way off.
Can poor conditions affect jumping? by Wendy Beasley From necessity my reports from trials are often dominated by the weather, as it plays such a huge part in the success or failure of the nose work.
What makes a good handler? by Richard Curtis With the Crufts semi-finals fast approaching it got me thinking what qualities must the top handlers possess in order to keep them at the top. Training a dog to compete in any sport takes a lot of commitment as a dog does not train itself.
A tribute to the dogs we lost in 2014 by Bronwyn Bartley Once again I would like to pay tribute to those dogs who have been lost to us over the past 12 months in my 2014 Roll of Honour...
Itching, dishwashing and a magic spray by Jane Lilley Reverting back to the subject of canine herpes once more, Maureen Hounslow of the Ridgeway Boston Terriers in Crowborough says that although, fortunately, she has had no experience of this herself...
The Swedish Kennel Club: Museum and book by Nick Waters A short while back I featured in the Dog World Annual one of the hidden gems in the dog art world; the collection at the Swedish Kennel Club.
Leading the way with good style by Eileen Geeson This week your opinion is what we are after. Andrew Graham emails, “with the vast amount of online and commercial DVDs from the US etc available, do groomers feel that styles are becoming Universal rather that UK standard.
A thumbs up for Six Puppies and Us by Steve Dean It was a little surprising to read the headline in DOG WORLD about the BBC2 TV programme Six puppies and us. It read as follows; Breeders infuriated by TV show about...
Leanlix low calorie dog treat and training aid by Geraldine Cove-Print Apparently, the nation’s dogs are turning into porkers! Canine obesity is rife and our dog’s waistlines are spreading with dire effect. It seems that dog owners have difficulty in noticing that their companion is piling on the pounds...
