Teaching the two on two off contact position by Becca Middleton There are many ways of achieving a solid, consistent and independent two on two off contact position and this is one tried and tested version.
The sound of life and aspergillosis updates by Jane Lilley More on the ‘woo-woo’ front comes via a delightful conversation with Lorna Fleming in Somerset, whose opening words were that the ability to say ‘woo-woo’ deeply in her throat actually prolonged her now 15-and-a-half-year-old Kizzie’s life!
The first Pekingese champions by Nick Waters THE SAYING ’they don’t make ‘em like that nowadays’ could well have been thought up for Maud Earl’s sumptuous portfolios of photogravures published in editions of 500 by the Berlin Photographic Company.
Hidden in plain sight dangers and animals in war remembered by Geraldine Cove-Print SOME WEEKS ago I wrote about boots for dogs and the difficulty of finding ones that would stay put! My thanks to Diana Hudson for writing to tell me about her 14-year-old lass who hates slippery floors and flatly refuses to even entertain the idea...
Assessing the risk of zoonotic diseases by Steve Dean ZOONOTIC diseases are defined as infections that can be transmitted between animals and humans. Although this implies a two-way process, the public focus is always on the route from animals to man and this can give a one-sided impression that...

Tracking lines special by Wendy Beasley - History made at the KC Working Trial Championships History was made at the Kennel Club Championships this year with a single dog and handler winning both stakes.

In the Dog House by Simon Parsons TWO RATHER strange muddles have emerged. The first is the Kennel Club contacting the French Bulldog breed clubs to tell them that as requested the breed Standard has been changed to clarify the colour question.
Lost in translation by Simon Parsons THE OTHER muddle is even more bizarre. The exhibitor who was second in one of the Pomeranian classes at Crufts received a letter from the Kennel Club saying that the awards had been adjudicated because the original winner was disqualified.
Honour for Mike by Simon Parsons MANY of you, especially if you are interested in Dandie Dinmont Terriers, will know Mike Macbeth who contributes a comprehensive report from the Canadian dog scene to DOG WORLD ANNUAL each year.
Keeping still by Simon Parsons FOR THOSE of you who are a judge, how important is it that the dog stands still while you are going over it?
Infuriated by Simon Parsons I WAS almost tempted to fire off a ‘Disgusted of Ashford’ letter to the good old Daily Telegraph after reading one of its issues last week really got me irritated.
Last minute stand in at South Wales by Andrew Brace It is always a secretary’s nightmare when judges have to withdraw at the last minute and at SWKA Bridget Croucher had a few replacements to find.
Are ‘rare’ claims attracting thefts? By Sheila Atter The theft of dogs seems to be a crime that is becoming almost commonplace. It affects all of us in one way or another – if we haven’t had a dog stolen ourselves we know someone who has.
Is anyone encouraging newcomers? by Tim Hutchings This is not the column that I intended to write but the sad deaths of Carl Johnson and Judy Averis, within a few days of each other, prompted a change of plan.
A chilling tale for Halloween By Geraldine Cove-Print There are two schools of thought about the origins of Halloween, the first is that it was all the idea of the Christians to have a day to remember the saints and martyrs that had died and that the evening before was in preparation for the Saints...
Skills tested by adverse conditions by Wendy Beasley The Midland Counties GSD Association Championship TD trial takes place a week before the Kennel Club Championships, which poses the dilemma for those qualified whether to use it as a warm up opportunity, or avoid it so close to the event for fear...
