This week's Dog World Comment DO SOME breeds have too many clubs for their current level of support? We suspect that few would deny that to be the case.
Merles not wanted by Simon Parsons SOMETHING intrigued me in the latest Kennel Club Journal, in the section where alterations to breed Standards are recorded.
New to the big time by Simon Parsons I ALWAYS thought it was just a matter of time before a Bracco Italiano won a best in show award at a UK general championship show. At its best this breed, with its expression seeming as from a different millennium and its eyecatching profile...
Like father like son by Simon Parsons I don’t know how often it has happened that a best-in-show judge has given the top award to father and son. Here’s the line-up from Manchester five years ago when Andrew Brace...
Introduction to showing by Simon Parsons KARL DONVIL makes a good point in one of his reports from a recent Belgian show – how useless is the show catalogue for anyone other than the dedicated...
Judge’s dilemma by Simon Parsons ISN’T IT frustrating for a judge when a dog comes under you that you really like in many ways but you are convinced that it could do ten times better were the handler better able to project it in the ring?
Moving sentiments by Andrew Brace Well, that was a week I wouldn’t want to go through again. On the surface it all seemed remarkable as many of my friends pointed out... having put my house on the market in early June...
Should the KC enforce health testing? By Sheila Atter When it comes to health matters it is very easy to bash the Kennel Club. The latest person to jump on the bandwagon is so-called TV vet Emma Milne, who has recently garnered herself some publicity by criticising the KC...
Foreign judges under fire again by Steven Seymour It is interesting to read that there were complaints at Welsh Kennel Club about a visiting judge from Russia. This happened just hours after Simon Luxmoore spoke of the need to reform judges’ approval and training here in the UK...
Bench and field: The Bettie Town Glen Prosen Challenge by David Hudson The name Bettie Town was, for well over half a century, synonymous with Pointer and Setter field trials and in particular with English Setters. Mrs Town was president of the English Setter Club...
Canine Trailblazers at the KC by Nick Waters I NEVER thought I would ever appreciate an exhibition that relied heavily on reproductions and copies to tell the story, but Canine Trailblazers: Dogs in Exploration...
Solving the sendaway problem by Wendy Beasley I have recently heard of other mock trials coming soon so this idea is really catching on, and I will definitely be taking advantage of them. It is interesting that many of us feel that some of the problems we may have with our dogs’ work are...
Welcome suspension of collapsible tunnel by Becca Middleton An open letter was sent to the Kennel Club in August 2016 regarding the removal of the collapsible tunnel from KC agility competitions. Its use has been featured over the past two years at Agility Liaison...
More tales of lacklustre seminars by Jane Lilley I was delighted to see, when DOG WORLD’s new garb first burst onto the show scene at Three Counties championship show, that the team are now clad in red as opposed to black! In other words the former black with red lettering has now been reversed...
Island hopping to a new home by Geraldine Cove-Print I’m secretary of Irish Setter Breeders Club Rescue and I thought I’d share one of our stories with you this week. It starts, as it always does, with a dog. Charlie was handed into a Northern Ireland pound by his owner...
This week's Dog World Comment HOW MUCH longer will it take the Kennel Club and the British Veterinary Association to come up with a joint heart-testing scheme, such as already exists for hips, eyes and elbows?
Improving open shows by Simon Parsons I HOPE that those of you who attend open shows have contacted the Kennel Club to give your views on whether the suspension of the rule regarding unbeaten dogs...
Jack Russell excursion by Simon Parsons As our Jack Russell Terrier accompanied us on a recent short break to Exmoor, we didn’t dare miss out on the chance to stop off in the village of Swimbridge, not far from Barnstaple, to pay a little tribute to the founder of this type of dog.
Database access by Simon Parsons PLEASED to see that the Norwegian Kennel Club (NKK) has now put its database on view to the general public.
