Classy but cheap... by Simon Parsons LAST WEEK I asked for your thoughts about whether providing rosettes for the class places is money well spent. This time I’d appreciate your input on a subject which I’m sure many breed clubs would...
Making the most of health surveys by Sheila Atter EVER SINCE the screening of Pedigree Dogs Exposed, health has had a high profile within the Kennel Club. Despite what critics would say, there was much good work going on before that date although most of it was relatively unpublicised.
Reform can begin at open shows by Steven Seymour I have been so busy this past month searching the internet and asking people about how I can improve my ‘social standing’. Unfortunately I can find no courses or ways to do this.
Revisiting the sendaway and redirect by Wendy Beasley As many of you will know from previous articles I have had to revisit my sendaway and redirect training with Lunar due to the fact that she seems to have lost her way literally in this exercise.
GB has full IFSS membership at last by Matt Hammersley Well, what glorious weather we have been having lately, I’m sure our friends in the showing world are loving the fact that those outdoor shows are not pouring with rain for once.
High praise for a new competition by Becca Middleton AXSTANE AC championship and premier agility show was held on June 14-15 and holds small and medium championship classes on the Sunday which were judged by Andrew Dicker this year.
More effort to write critiques please by Jane Lilley The response to my comments about judging critiques or rather lack of some particularly at general open shows has created a most gratifying response!
Working in tandem – a case history by Julia Robertson Integrative medicine is a term that I particularly like as this defines more clearly what professional therapists, such as Galen Myotherapists, are trying to achieve.
The right photo can help rehome by Geraldine Cove-Print Arthur Brisbane is probably one of the best well known newspaper editors of the 20th century. Now you may not think you’ve heard of him but I’m willing to bet that you have heard the expression “a picture is worth a thousand words”.
Are we ready to use EBVs? by Steve Dean Hip scores measure the phenotypic appearance of a joint arising from hip laxity (dysplasia). Now do not stop reading just because of a bit of jargon, the ready translation is as follows: hip scores measure the visual effects of hip laxity as seen...
The ‘bootiful’ Botallack Hounds by Nick Waters One man’s trash is another man’s treasure and so it is with artist David Kemp. He creates assemblage sculptures from a variety of objects that in most cases have had a previous life.
The root cause of exhibitors' dissatisfaction by Andrew Brace I will be covering the majority of my Blackpool experience in next week’s issue, but before doing so I feel so strongly about one aspect of my awards that I decided this column should precede it.

In the Dog House by Simon Parsons IT ISN’T only in the UK where there are continued calls for greater democracy in the governing body.
Success at any time by Simon Parsons Two contrasting success stories from Three Counties. One of them is a case of ‘perseverance pays off’. Robert Warrington owned his first Pembroke Corgi when he was 12 years old – that was 65 years ago. He has been involved with the breed ever...
