Breed Notes - 4 Nov 2014
This week’s notes are rather dominated by the Obedience world. Firstly, I was given a copy of Dog Training Weekly for October 24th, and there, on the front cover, is a Dutch Hovawart , Cox vom Wittgrund, doing some close control heelwork with his handler Eric Kerhof in Class A. The judge was apparently “smitten by this stunning Hovawart”, and “can’t wait to see him next year”, but sadly he didn’t do well enough to get in the cards this time round.
Our Maggie has been rather more successful with her home-bred Hightimbers Dollar, and has qualified to compete in Class A at the new KC Obedience Class Championship event at Stoneleigh in three weeks’ time. Good luck to them both for that event. Actually, Maggie will be making Stoneleigh her second home because she is also part of the organisation for the KC Obreedience competition for Crufts, that I believe is being expanded in the future to have heats at some championship shows so that the field of competitors can be expanded. Certainly this last year for us it was a highlight of the Crufts experience.
It was the last Championship show of the year to give us breed classes this last weekend, and I am still rooting out the results, but a chance look at Face Book gives me to believe that Anne Stewart, over from Ireland, did well. I hope to get the full story for next week, when I will also report back on the last KC Discover Dogs at Earls Court, that takes place this next weekend. I can’t wait to see how spectacular Lloyd has made our stand.
