In the Dog House by Simon Parsons HAS THERE been any progress in sorting out the question of mutual recognition of judges between the Kennel Club and the Fédération Cynologigue Internationale?
Sutton’s heyday by Simon Parsons JUST AS one scans the obituary pages of the broadsheets to see which celebrity has died next, the same applies to the Kennel Club Journal where one looks to see which open show society has died this month.
Gundogs and goodbyes by Andrew Brace A busy and somewhat demanding week began with the Gundog Society of Wales championship show on the Wednesday, sadly (spoken as a Welshman) now held in Malvern.
ABS must put quality dogs first by Sheila Atter THE KENNEL Club recently issued guidelines on the subject of the social media. There was sensible advice reminding people that anything they post is in a public forum – even if included in a closed group...
Providing a central database by Steven Seymour MY FELLOW columnist Sheila Atter wrote what I think were magic words a few weeks back. Sheila wrote “the problem with the system is there is no system at all”.
A privileged view of the country by Wendy Beasley As I drove through the country lanes of Norfolk on a sunny autumn day recently I started to think about all the lovely places we had been in other parts of the country.
Mud baths and Baltic weather by Matt Hammersley It’s been a busy month already for dog sport around the European scene, despite the warm weather many races have got off to start the season and once again Team GB arrived home from the European Canicross Federation Grand Prix race in France with...
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!

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.
