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 […]

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 […]

Crufts & Discover Dogs 2016

Posted Posted in Crufts, Discover Dogs, Dog shows

We did our stint helping out at Discover Dogs, which was extremely busy and full on, so much so that Stephen lost his voice by Saturday!  All the dogs did a sterling job of being petted, admired and photographed and Dora and I were asked to take part in a Ringcraft demonstration in one of the rings alongside – and she behaved impeccably for once! The following day we did our showing under judge Val Fosse.  Bilbo got VHC and Dora was 4th in PGB and 3rd in GCB.  It was a real family affair as brothers Boris and Spot, […]

Little brother Spot joined us at LKA on 12 December 2015 and did amazingly well to qualify for Crufts and also gained his Good Citizens Bronze Award – Well Done Spot, you are such a cutie!

Christchurch & New Forest Open Show – 18 May 2014

Posted Posted in Dog shows

Had a lovely day in the sunshine at the C&NF Open Show, Canford Magna with Heeler friends and picnic!  Bilbo got Reserve Best of Breed despite prancing about all over the spiky long grass, and Spot came along to see what showing is all about and enjoyed meeting other Heelers.  Our friend Jean did a great job in the Brace Stakes and won with Jazz & Toto.  Lovely day, wonderful dogs and great company!
