This week's Dog World Comment WE HOPE the Kennel Club quickly sorts out the muddle regarding the changes to the French Bulldog Standard. It seemed strange indeed that the breed clubs should be informed of the change, only for two days later to be told that this wasn’t yet...
In the Dog House by Simon Parsons I PROMISED to say more about the concept of ‘head breeds’, something which has always rather worried me and especially in this day and age when lack of exaggeration is considered so important.
Breed club proposals by Simon Parsons SOME INTERESTING items on the breeds liaison council meeting agenda. The moves by the Pembroke Corgi Judges Sub-Committee and the Great Dane Breed Council to ensure that up and coming judges of their breeds...
The big four by Simon Parsons IN THE worlds of tennis and golf, four events of the year have special status. Win one of these, and you have arrived. Win several, and you stand a chance of being ranked among the game’s all-time greats.
A grim week for British dogdom by Andrew Brace Just as I was feeling uplifted with the time so many of us had spent listening to Frank Sabella and Jason Lynn at their Handling Masterclass, the sad news came through that Judy Averis had lost her battle with cancer.
How will the new initiatives fare? By Sheila Atter I have to admit to being under-whelmed by the first announcement from the working party set up to make suggestions as to how to re-invigorate our shows.
Risk assessment for dogs... and owners by Kevin Colwill AUTUMN is my favourite season. The shorter, cooler days suit my wardrobe, physique and temperament very much better than the sultry summer months.
Prone to a bit of wear and tear by Wendy Beasley One of the more obscure benefits of working trials is the healthy outdoor life and fitness levels it promotes in the handlers. I say this slightly ‘tongue in cheek’ as I have never pretended to be anything bordering on fit...
First time CC win at Chippenham by Becca Middleton At the end of September the Camddwr Cup and Agility Secrets finals were held at the Malvern Autumn Three Counties Show. The Camddwr Cup Agility Final sponsored by CSJ, Hurtta and RAS Rosettes and which has the best prizes of any final I know of...
New binders for the Red Book, Woo Woo! by Jane Lilley Just out of interest, has anyone had difficulty when trying to insert the Kennel Club’s Yearbook 2014/15 – known fondly as the Red Book – into its own official red loose-leaf binder?
‘… one is vice-chairman, the other isn’t ….’ by Nick Waters Continuing last week’s theme of featuring a cartoon, I jump back some 50 years to one published in 1904. Titled ‘… one is vice-chairman, the other isn’t ….’
Unwelcome visitors that come calling by Eileen Geeson It’s been one of those years, a dry, warm summer, we have loved it but it has also been fabulous for the flea population. There certainly seems to be a lot about if my email box is anything to go by.
What to expect during birthing by Steve Dean Helping a bitch whelp is rewarding but it is important to know when to get involved and when to stand back and let nature work its own miracle. In a previous article the discussion on whelping stopped at about the point a puppy was making its way...
Vita Canis 100 per cent natural products by Geraldine Cove-Print Winter draws on and along with the aroma of damp dogs, that smell as if they have been rolling in mushrooms, there are the delights of sore winter paws, chapped hands and spotty bellies – one would hope the spots were restricted to canine tummies...
The statistics behind HD scores by Mike Tempest After my last article several readers have contacted me and asked if I could provide more explanation on the various statistical terms that are used in the description of HD (hip dysplasia) scores, such as the term ‘median’...
It may seem coincidental but cross my heart, this article was started and indeed almost finished before I read Steve Dean’s latest contribution to ‘from the chairman’ in the October Kennel Club Journal where he tries...
This week's Dog World Comment TWO WEEKS ago we dealt with the subject of judges, following on from Steve Dean’s comprehensive look in the Kennel Club Journal at some of the dilemmas involved.
In the Dog House by Simon Parsons EBOLA, Syria, Iraq, Palestine, UKIP, murder, mayhem, human rights abuses and Shih Tzu topknots – you really do have to admit that we live in an era of big news stories.
Keenly missed by Simon Parsons WHAT A SAD period this is for the world of dogs, with the death of so many of our most successful personalities. I think the warmth of the many tributes we have received for both Carl Johnson and Judy Averis speaks for itself...
