Breed Notes - 3 Jun 2015
I got quite excited when I read that there were to be alterations to the qualification criteria for Crufts for 2016, but actually very few of the changes affect our breed at all. I must say that what I was hoping for was the inclusion of our Club show in the list of qualifying events, but sadly this type of show isn’t as yet on the KC radar.

In general, club open shows get a large entry compared with other open shows, and even in breeds with CCs, they often bear comparison with championship shows. In our case, the club show consistently attracts an entry on a par with Crufts itself, and nearly five times the numbers of any of the championship shows. Indeed it is actually very easy to qualify a Hovawart for Crufts, as a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd prize in most classes at championship shows will get you there, and it is a great rarity for there to be more than 3 entries in any of the classes, whereas the class average at the club show are significantly higher.

Perhaps the KC will give consideration to including club open shows in the list of qualifying events in future.In our particular case, there is a very good argument for it, and I can’t believe we are alone in this regard.

As promised, I now have the detailed results from the Irish Club show, judged by Noleen Eccles. Best in Show was Heli Mooney’s Robin (Metsavahdin Robin), with Stephen McDermot & Kathy West’s Casper (Casper Z Nerudovky ) Best Dog. Reserves were Stephen & Kathy’s Ruby (Pines Hathor) and Brid Sullivan’s Duke (Castlemary Duke). The British flag was upheld by Liz & Lynne, who won three classes, and a good time was had by all.
