This week's Dog World Comment IF ONLY there were a simple answer to preventing horrific dog attacks such as we have seen within the past week or so…
Hunts with the Kerry Beagle by Simon Parsons I WAS delighted to get some feedback on the subject of the Kerry Beagle, which I featured recently on the occasion of this very rare breed (in show ring terms) winning its first ever group place at a championship show in Ireland.
An open gene pool by Simon Parsons LEADING ON from my request for the dog CC and RCC results to be published at the end of the dog judging, Ian Millar comes up with a couple more suggestions that would make life more interesting for those who try to keep track of what’s going in...
Showground security by Simon Parsons THERE’S A lot of talk during every show season about whether there is any point in removal orders at the big shows.
French Bulldog rough justice by Andrew Brace When I had some free time in Split I managed to catch up with what was going on in the wider dog world and I was rather dismayed to read of the outcome of the ongoing dispute over the French Bulldog...
Giving a higher profile to dog theft by Sheila Atter What is the most important issue facing the pedigree dog world at the present time? Is it the German Shepherd Dog debacle? Is it the explosion of registrations of dogs of non-recognised colours in some breeds?
Is it time for compulsory insurance? by Kevin Colwill I’m writing this column in the wake of a yet another tragic dog attack. David Ellam was killed defending his Yorkshire Terrier from another dog. The facts of the case demonstrate, if any demonstration were still needed, that the way we enforce the...
The inheritance of coat type by Dr Mike Tempest The KENNEL CLUB recently announced a change in the way that puppies in some breeds would be registered in regard to coat type. Up to the present puppies are registered in the same register as their parents...

Persistent barking in the car by Jane Lilley A call came from Avril Caplan in Glasgow about her then six month old Rough Collie, Henry, who has what would seem to be an all too real fear of noise and particularly that of the car.
Understanding the hoarder by Geraldine Cove-Print For breed rescue the sudden influx of a number of dogs can really test your organisation, it may be that a breeder or multiple dog owner dies or becomes incapacitated or it could be a hoarder is...
This week's Dog World Comment IT is a sad reflection of our times that of the 1,400 or so responses the Canine Alliance received to its latest survey almost half the respondents claim they have been bullied.
In the Dog House by Simon Parsons I ASKED for exhibitors’ experiences of the ‘zero tolerance’ policy regarding dogs in vehicles, operated by Windsor and I think a few other shows. Clearly this is well intentioned and designed to avoid tragedy...
‘Unbeaten’ review by Simon Parsons IT MUST soon surely be time for some decisions about whether to make the suspension of the ‘unbeaten dog’ regulations a permanent arrangement.
A busy weekend by Simon Parsons REGULAR readers may recall that one subject which always makes me cross is that Paignton show has been allowed by the Kennel Club to muscle in on the same weekend that the Houndshow and National Gundog have occupied for many years.
