A trio of medals at World Championships by Becca Middleton THE International Mix and Breed Championships (IMCA) and ParAgility World Championships (PAWC) were held in Italy in Voghera.
A fine time for a late summer moult by Jane Lilley I have noticed at many recent shows that a number of dogs have suddenly and apparently inexplicably decided to cast their coats with a vengeance when their owners might be expecting them to grow them, or at least keep them, in preparation for the...
Monumental and majestic Mastiffs by Nick Waters This week I feature two large imposing statues of Mastiffs that grace the grounds of two country houses, Duncombe Park in England and Babelsberg Castle in Germany, designed and created as a little piece of England in Germany.
To snap or not to snap by Eileen Geeson Andrew Graham is always a source of inspiration; it is good to have such an active fan of the Grooming Box. To start with Andrew thought it may be interesting to discuss the use of snap-on comb attachments.
Routine treatment of worms by Steve Dean Worms were mentioned in passing last week and AVV has not focused on these parasites for some time. Worms are such a common infection in dogs that effective treatment is often taken for granted but occasionally a litter of pups crops up with the...
LightMagic TiO2 coated lightbulb by Geraldine Cove-Print When I come home from a few hours away from my house I’m sure I’m not the only dog owner who enters my abode taking in a good whiff from the air inside.
In my last article I hope I persuaded you that the question you should now be asking is not “What is your dog’s hip score?” but rather “What is your dog’s hip estimated breeding value (EBV)?”
This week's Dog World Comment WE ARE quite sure that all our readers will share the same feelings following the fire at Manchester Dogs’ Home last week which took the lives of more than 50 dogs.
In the Dog House by Simon Parsons THE LETTER from Gillian Taylor which originally appeared on Facebook on the Exhibitors’ Choice and Voice Group, and is now in this week’s DOG WORLD, seemed to catch a nerve.
‘Yes’ vote implications by Simon Parsons DEPENDING on whether you read DOG WORLD online or in the traditional format, the Scottish independence referendum will either be decided or under way.
Breeding expertise by Simon Parsons DID YOU see the episode of our TV programme Around The Dog World dealing with the National Working and Pastoral Breeds show? If not you can catch up with it on YouTube.
Working trial life by Simon Parsons IT’S ALWAYS good to hear from people who have been involved with both show and working dogs. One such is Rosie Lane whose Chaanrose Dobermanns and Basenjis have included many breed champions, plus Dobes with working trial awards; indeed one...
Great champions and hair splitting decisions at The City by Andrew Brace It was a joy to judge the Eukanuba champion and the Higham Press veteran stakes at the City of Birmingham which saw David Bell properly in harness as the new secretary and he seems to have taken over from Keith and June Young seamlessly, with the...
Not in the ‘business’ of breeding by Sheila Atter It seems that the inevitable reaction to any new announcement about changes to the Assured Breeder Scheme is a prolonged debate via the social media about the alleged shortcomings of the scheme.
Will Parliament act on puppy farms? by Jessica Holm I have to confess, any mention of dog related issues catching the radar in Westminster sends shivers down my spine. I’m of an age to carry the memories of the dreaded Dangerous Dogs Act (1991) heavy in my heart.
Last qualifier for Championships by Wendy Beasley It has been a busy time for trials lately but none more important than the Hampshire TD trial which is the last qualifier for the 2014 Kennel Club Championships.
A busy weekend judging at Worcester by Bronwyn Bartley On August 25 Worcester DTC held its first ever championship show with an open show the previous day. I was very excited when I received the invitation to judge the bitch ticket on this important occasion. Roy Page was invited to judge the dog...
Working party recommendations by Richard Curtis The members of the HTM working party meet at the Kennel Club twice yearly to discuss any matters that have arisen in the previous six months but also to try to develop the sport in the UK.
