Preparing for the Scottish heather by Wendy Beasley Our next trial will be the Scottish Working Trials Society TD championship at Lauder, and this is one where we can be sure what we will be tracking on.
Are you settling for ‘okay’? by Richard Curtis I was asked a question the other day which was “why do you think you have been successful in freestyle” which got me thinking about why some people seem to do well whereas others stay at a level and don’t seem to progress.
UK first for German duo by Bronwyn Bartley On Saturday August 16 Mavis Mills and I made our way to Builth Wells for The Welsh Kennel Club championship show where Mavis was judging the bitch ticket with Steve Barnes judging the dogs.
Noise anxiety and overnight rumblings by Jane Lilley A very prompt and sensible sounding call came in response to the plea for help for Isla Gilchrist’s giant breed’s over-anxiety with, what he considered to be, strange loud noises.
Canine amputees - post-op help by Julia Robertson I meet some amazing dogs in my work, their resilience, bravery and sheer ‘joie de vivre’ never fails to amaze me. This aspect of a dog’s persona is one that I believe we can learn so much from...
The charm of the lurcher by Geraldine Cove-Print The only hounds I have ever owned have been the horizontally blessed Dachshunds, but I can see why so many people love the hound breeds, there is such a variety of shapes, sizes and coat textures.
When to be concerned about diarrhoea by Steve Dean Diarrhoea is an unpleasant experience for two reasons – it is often an unexpected event and you rarely find it where you would prefer it to be. In addition, diarrhoea smells awful and in more serious terms it may be a signal of something of...
Field Trial Champion Dash II by Nick Waters John Charles Dollman (1851-1934) studied art at the Royal College of Art and the Royal Academy schools where he won prizes for drawing from life.
This week's Dog World Comment IT MAY seem a strange thing to say but the worst enemy in the fight towards an end to ‘puppy farming’ is the general public itself! The problem could be solved at a stroke – if the public didn’t buy puppies from such places, or pups who...
The 2014 Pointer and Setter champion stake was scheduled for August 10-11 on the Duke of Roxburghe’s Byrecleugh Estate in the Scottish borders. The weather forecast ahead of the trial was atrocious: the remnants of Hurricane Bertha were supposed...
Veteran Star by Simon Parsons AN ADDITION to Albert Wight’s report on his Shetland Sheepdog judging at the World Show and a great win for a British-bred dog. He says: "I had the joy of watching my Veteran World Winner Multi Ch Japaro Eye Of The Storm, bred by Ian and Margo...
More brood success by Simon Parsons THANKS for more details of successful brood bitches. Enid Hinslea tells me of her Irish Setter Kerryfair United with Northamber, bred by Sandra Chorley-Newton, who was mated for her first litter to Three Rivers from Kerryfair...

Helsinki on top of the World by Andrew Brace It was always expected that this year’s World Show would be spectacular. Finland has over the years acquired a reputation for staging international dog shows that are impeccably organised with a unique style. The Finnish Kennel Club’s previous FCI...
ANYONE who was at the recent World Dog Show in Finland could not help but notice just how many of those involved in all aspects of the show were comparatively young. It is a subject I have touched on before, and I make no apology for returning, as...
You may think I’m quite tragic, but each week I do read the dog paper from cover to cover. This includes every set of breed notes since I like to see what the ‘competition’ is up to and almost all of the critiques – certainly from championship...
What’s in your training bag? by Wendy Beasley ONCE AGAIN we were lucky enough to get together with friends at the weekend for some really valuable training. These were different friends from our last session and so an opportunity for all of us to benefit from new eyes and new ideas which...
