Teaching a good weave in Sweden by Richard Curtis It has been a few months since I was last teaching abroad so getting organised to leave for a workshop in Sweden found me checking and rechecking my suitcase that I had packed everything I needed.
Trouble with cars and indigestion by Jane Lilley Thank you everyone who has so kindly asked about the health or otherwise of my car that inexplicably lost power on the M40 en route home after a happy day’s judging at the City of Birmingham.
The KCs involvement with rescue by Geraldine Cove-Print I just spent an amusing few minutes trying out the Kennel Club ‘Find a Breed’ online service. I found it to be an excellent tool and it would be very useful for the novice, aspiring dog owner I feel, it could also be a great resource for dog rescue.
The art of clipping by Eileen Geeson Machines designed for the clipping of dogs come in many different forms, a variety of makes, a selection of quality and price, a range of shapes and varying weight.
Can dogs spread the ebola virus? by Steve Dean Ebola continues to threaten the populations of countries in West Africa and is proving to be a difficult situation for everyone involved. The nurse in Spain, who has recovered following treatment, owned a dog and news that Spanish authorities had...
A deathly cost for Hounds in Leash by Nick Waters This monumental plaster group by Harry Bates ARA (1850-1899) measuring over seven feet in length, was commissioned by the Earl of Wemyss and March to be cast in bronze to stand outside his home, Gosford House near Longniddry in East Lothian, after...
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 ….’
