Game Fairs 2019

Posted Posted in Game Fair

The year is passing so quickly and once again the Game Fairs are upon us with the May Bank Holidays approaching fast!  We had a wonderful time last year going around the country attending all the Living Heritage Game Fairs.  However this year Netley and Essex Game Fairs have been dropped mainly due to the weather last year which was too hot at Netley and too wet and cold at Essex.  So hoping this year will be better! Calling any interested Heeler owners? We are always looking out for Lancashire Heeler owners who would like to come and give a couple […]

Hampshire Country Show – May 2018

Posted Posted in Game Fair

It was a blisteringly hot couple of days at the Hampshire Country Show on 6-7 May 2018 – quite the opposite to Thame a month ago! Everyone was feeling the heat and we had taken our cool coats for the dogs which they wore all day long.  Many people were asking why our dogs were wearing coats in the heat and were surprised when touching them how cool and refreshing they were – we were also asked if there was a human version as there was very little shade on the showground!  Maybe there is a marketing opportunity here?  We […]

Thame Game Fair 2018

Posted Posted in Game Fair, Our Dogs

Weather forecast for the Thame Game Fair over the Easter Bank holiday weekend was not good, but after a ground check on Saturday it was all on for Sunday.  Rather than take the caravan and get stuck in mud – or snow – we got up early Sunday morning to set up first thing.  It was very chilly but the weather was dry and all the activities were able to take place, it was very busy possibly because no one wanted to risk coming on Easter Monday which was wise as the Show had to be cancelled that day due […]

Wiltshire Game Fair – September 2017

Posted Posted in Game Fair

We attended the Wiltshire Game Fair again which takes place in the beautiful grounds of Bowood House, Calne.  We have our own marquee within The World of Dogs area and enjoy meeting members of the public and chatting about Heelers all weekend!  We love to have other Heeler owners or dog lovers coming to help us and can offer unlimited teas and coffees, biscuits, cake, etc plus free entry and parking to the event.  It was a family event this September with a reunion of Pickle & Mouse’s first litter all doing their bit for the breed! Lynn and Charlie who own […]

Bowood Dog Show 18 & 19 June 2016

Posted Posted in Dog shows, Game Fair

After reading a letter in one of the Dog papers it sparked an interest in trying to get a stand to promote our breed at the Living Heritage Country Fairs.  We were offered a stand at the Bowood Dog Show in Wiltshire so we sorted out some banners and our friend Jean sewed an amazing Heeler bunting to decorate the marquee with. We had a very enjoyable and busy weekend chatting about Heelers to everyone and also taking part in the Native Breeds Parade in the main ring.  We hope to do more of these and it is lovely to […]
