In the Dog House by Simon Parsons WHAT’S YOUR reaction to the Kennel Club’s decisions regarding the German Shepherd breed?
Irish heritage show by Simon Parsons WE OFTEN ask what more can be done to promote the native breeds. I suppose part of the trouble is that England has so many of them, supplemented by those from Wales and Scotland, that there are rather a lot to promote – not just the ‘vulnerable’...
The first world congress by Simon Parsons IT WILL BE interesting to see the agenda of the world congress of kennel clubs which the Kennel Club is hosting in June next year. What will be the subjects the great and good deem important enough to discuss?
Affenpinscher mystery by Simon Parsons IF YOU are interested in the US dog scene you’ll be pleased that there’s a new weekly magazine, also available online, entitled DN Magazine, with much the same personnel, contributors and content as Dog News which stopped publication earlier this...
