Keeping photographic records by Sheila Atter It’s coming up to that time of year again – when keen exhibitors are rushing round trying to get good photographs for the Dog World annual, as well as for club yearbooks and calendars.
Pets Welfare Alliance Union has its say by Eileen Geeson What happens to our dogs is important to all of us. We know we are conditioned to a point to ‘go with the flow’ but it is not all that. We really want to do the very best for our dogs and so therefore we believe, or the majority of us believe...
Bench and Field - A long and hard day on the heather at Croglin Estate by David Hudson The Kennel Club held an all aged any variety retriever stake on the Croglin Estate in Cumbria on August 25. This trial is something of an annual special event because the grouse are not walked up but shot over pointers and setters.
Are you plate spinning your training? by Wendy Beasley One of the questions I am frequently asked is how often I train my dogs. Most people assume I am out every day but, much as I wish this were true, it is really not the case.
Teek comes back from injury in style by Becca Middleton Natalie Mitchell who works at Many Tears Animal Rescue in South Wales, and her talented rescued Collie Streak of Chaos have achieved great results this season and has kindly agreed to answer a few questions that I put to her about herself and Teek.
A disastrous trip back from The City by Jane Lilley This past week has resulted in an all too real living with dogs situation! I had had a lovely day’s judging at City of Birmingham and, suddenly feeling rather tired, decided to leave at 5.45pm with the aim of arriving home somewhere in the...
The first Soviet cosmonauts by Nick Waters You could well ask just how a Soviet Union 1950s dog space suit fits into my brief of the dog in art: my answer would be design.
Colour experiments can lead to an explosion by Eileen Geeson Poodle colour registrations are causing great worry to serious breeders who believe it is imperative that the breed Standard be adhered to in order to preserve the ‘realness’ of this lovely breed.
More serious cases of diarrhoea by Steve Dean Last week, AVV described the typical ‘upset stomach’ that dogs frequently suffer, especially during autumn. The environment at this time of year is awash with decomposing vegetation, fruit or fungus, as well as other people’s discarded detritus...
PawTrax – In Collar tracker by Geraldine Cove-Print IT IS amazing how many people think that the identity microchip in a dog can track their moves. It really doesn’t, a microchip is the size of a grain of rice and it holds a number, that’s it.
This week's Dog World Comment OBVIOUSLY, the dog world and the way it is organised and governed is in the grand scheme of things a rather small part of life in general. Nevertheless for those seriously involved in it, it often becomes a very important part of their lives...
In the Dog House by Simon Parsons NO DOUBT many breeds have enthusiasts who feel strongly about breed type and the direction in which their breed is progressing.

‘Far from ideal’ by Simon Parsons FEEDBACK is always welcomed, even (indeed especially!) when you disagree with my ramblings. One who does is Roy Wheatley who says: "I usually enjoy reading In the Dog House, but was disappointed to see your response...
Beauceron celebration by Simon Parsons THE DAY a breed gains separate classes for the first time, after coming off the imported breed register, is obviously a major landmark in its history.
Wales beats the weatherman by Andrew Brace Despite an indifferent start to the weekend, the Welsh Kennel Club was blessed with three dry days for its representative championship show this year.
Change may be a good thing by Sheila Atter Did you read the very interesting letter from Pihla Haukatsalo-Irving in last week’s Dog World? She raised some extremely valid questions with regard to the Scottish Kennel Club’s situation in the event of a ‘yes’ vote in the forthcoming referendum.

THE SWEDISH Kennel Club, as has been reported previously in DOG WORLD, runs an ambitious programme called BSI (breed-specific instructions regarding exaggerations in pedigree dogs).
