Two Bedford dogs have been named the most beautiful and beautiful dogs in the area by Scruffs, the annual crossbreeding competition held by the Kennel Club.

Frank, a four-year-old crossbreed man Wendy Halling, was crowned “the most beautiful crossbreed” in the region.

While Wilma, an eight-year-old Springer Spaniel / Jack Russell Terrier cross, whose human is Rachel Hukin, has been named “the prettiest female dog cross”.

Frank and Wilma will now take part in the semi-finals at the world’s most famous dog show, Crufts, in 2022.

Speaking of their victory, Wendy said, “I am absolutely delighted and delighted that Frank has won the Scruffts round. He is a very special rescue dog with a calm, friendly and gentle nature.

“He makes me laugh every day and is a big talker, but he also supported me when my husband passed away suddenly because I had to take care of him and take him for a walk even when I didn’t feel like going out.

“I’m so proud of him and love him to the moon and back.”

Rachel added: “I feel great to have qualified for Crufts. Wilma is a dog show pro, having been at Crufts for three years for many different things. She loves the attention!

Wilma and Frank aren’t just pretty faces, either.

When not strutting around, Frank is also a really good boy working as a therapy dog, visiting schools to hear from readers as part of the Read2dogs program.

Wilma is also a very good girl and works as a therapy dog.

The Scruffts Family Crossbreed Dog of the Year competition, exclusively supported by pet food manufacturers James Wellbeloved, is open to all cross-breed and mixed-breed dogs of all shapes, sizes and ages (provided they ‘they are over six months old).

The dogs judge, Gerald King, judged the competitors that day, who had the difficult decision of picking a single winner from both classes.

Dog enthusiast Fifi Robertson Geldof joined Gerald in judging the class of the most beautiful dog.

The complete list of winners:

  • The most beautiful crossbreed dog: Frank, four, crossbreed, owned by Wendy Halling of Bedford, Bedfordshire
  • The prettiest female dog cross: Wilma, eight, the Springer Spaniel / Jack Russell Terrier cross, owned by Rachel Hukin from Bedford, Bedfordshire
  • Golden Oldie Crossbreed: 10 year old Teddy Bear, the Lhasa Apso / Bichon Frize cross, owned by Louise Jacobs from Colchester, Essex
  • Good Citizen Dog Scheme: Sammi, five years old, the Bichon Frize cross, owned by Rowan Carter of Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire

All of the dogs competing were judged based on qualities such as good character, good health, good personality, good temper with people and other dogs.

All four dogs will now compete in Crufts 2022 at the NEC Birmingham in March to be chosen as the Scruffts Family Cross Dog of the Year.

Note from Heidi the Greyhound

Having won the ‘Most Beautiful Bedford Dog’ contest at Frosts in 2008, I know only too well the pressure that will be on Wilma and Frank’s shoulders at this time.

I hope all doggos from Bedford and beyond join in and wish them well, wagging their tails in support.

They really are the best boys and girls and we are all very proud of them.

Humans remember, don’t just ask “who’s a good boy / girl?” Ask “what is a good boy / girl like?” ” too much.

Judging will begin at 8:30 a.m. each day in seven different rings, and activities will end around 5:00 p.m.

It should be a good screaming moment, according to Jean Lien, president of the club.

“We have 723 dogs entered this year and entries from across the country,” she said. “There are almost any breed you can imagine. “

Seven breed groups will be judged, including sporting breeds, hunting dog breeds, working breeds, terrier breeds, toy breeds, non-sporting breeds and breeding breeds, according to information from the program on Jack Onofrio’s website. There will also be various courses and junior demonstration courses.

One dog from each group will participate in the Best of Show competition, Lien said. Members of the public will have the opportunity to follow the dogs through the different judging rounds until the Best of Show round.

“People see dogs on TV, but they don’t see how they got there,” she said.

A different team of judges will judge each day, providing an additional opportunity for dogs to earn top honors, Lien said.

Bergit Coady-Kabel has come a long way since learning to check canine anal glands. After a lifetime of grooming and showcasing award-winning dogs, the 73-year-old Indio resident will be a judge at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show – the the oldest dog show in the USA

“It’s a show you want to go to,” Coady-Kabel said, describing it as glamorous, charming, and vibrant. She has shown many dogs at Westminster and has attended them almost every year, but this will be the first time she has attended as a judge.

She retired from a handler in 2016 following a diagnosis of multiple myeloma, a cancer of the plasma cells. However, when her cancer went into remission, she began the process to become a judge and judged her first show in 2018.

The iconic dog show is expected to return to New York after the 2021 outdoor event is held at the Lyndhurst Estate in Tarrytown, New York, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Strauss will judge the Task Force, his third Judge assignment at Westminster, live on January 26 on FS1, according to a press release from the Westminster Kennel Club. The winner of their working group will qualify for the Best in Show competition that evening.

In 2019, she was nominated for Judge of the Year by the Purina Pro Plan Show Dogs of the Year awards committee.

Richard W. Powell, of Palmyra, to judge at upcoming 146th annual convention Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.

The show will take place on January 26, 2022 and will be presented by Purina Pro Plan in New York City.

Powell will judge the Terrier Group, and the winner of that group will advance to the Best in Show competition.

Richard W. Powell (photo submitted)

The dog show is not a new arena for Powell. He has a lifelong experience with purebred dogs, starting with English Cockers and then breeding and showing English setters in England, according to a press release from the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.

Because Powell’s long-term dream was to breed and exhibit terriers, he gained some experience with top handlers in California before embarking on his own terrier journey. He bought a small farm and kennel with his wife, Sue, and has raised and shown numerous terriers including Welsh Flatford and Hapitails terriers.

Powell has already judged many other national specialties. He has judged terrier specialties overseas in South America, England and Europe, and has received approval to judge Best in Show, Working and Hunting Breeds, Toy, Terrier and Sporting Groups.

A calendar of events for the dog show can be found here.

The annual national dog show is arguably the best part of Thanksgiving Day. With the food cooking in the kitchen and your stomach rumbling, why not lay back on the couch and watch nearly 200 top-level dogs strut about? Here is everything you need to know about dog racing.

When does the show air?

The National Dog Show airs on NBC on Thanksgiving Day starting at noon in all time zones, right after the Macy’s Day Parade.

Where can I watch the show?

Watch the 2021 National Dog Show on NBC. It can also be broadcast on the NBC website and on other streaming apps such as Hulu Live and Youtube TV. The NBC app is available on mobile and connected devices including Roku, Apple TV, and Amazon Fire. Commentators include Mary Carillo, David Frei, and John O’Hurley.

Who won last year?

Claire the Scottish Deerhound won the Best in Show award at the 2020 National Dog Show.

What makes this year special?

It’s the 20th anniversary of the national dog show. This is also the first year that the AKC-recognized 197th breed, the Biewer Terrier, will compete. Keep an eye out for the Toy Group’s little dog.

How do dog shows work?

If you are not familiar with dog shows, now is a great time to learn! Study some of the common dog show terms you might hear during the show. Also familiarize yourself with how a dog show winner is chosen. As a guide, dogs are not judged against each other. Rather, each dog is judged against its individual breed standard. The dog that best conforms to its breed standard either advances or wins.

Where can I watch more dog shows?

If you want to watch a dog show in its entirety, you might want to attend the AKC 2021 National Championship from December 17-19. The seven groups, Best in Show, Puppy and Junior Stakes, Junior Showmanship Finals, Agility, Obedience and Rally will be broadcast live on AKC.tv and will remain available on request. Stay tuned for more information on the official broadcast of the AKC 2021 National Championship presented by Royal Canin, coming in 2022!

Can I show my dog ​​at a dog show?

Would you like to be there to show off your dog? There are several ways to start! If you have a mixed breed dog or a dog ineligible for conformation, don’t worry. There are many other dog sports you can participate in including agility, rallying and more!

Spend Thanksgiving with your dog?

Enjoy the holidays, but know which Thanksgiving foods are safe and unsafe for your dog. The last thing you want at the end of the day is a puppy with an upset stomach!

Three-legged dog could make American Kennel Club history https://codogfederation.org/three-legged-dog-could-make-american-kennel-club-history/ Fri, 12 Nov 2021 20:17:03 +0000 https://codogfederation.org/three-legged-dog-could-make-american-kennel-club-history/ Rascal, a young Norwich Terrier who lost a hind leg to cancer, in December may be the first “tripod” dog to compete in an American Kennel Club agility competition, now that his owner of Long Island has persuaded the club to advance its decision by as much as two years, a club spokeswoman confirmed Thursday. […]]]>

Rascal, a young Norwich Terrier who lost a hind leg to cancer, in December may be the first “tripod” dog to compete in an American Kennel Club agility competition, now that his owner of Long Island has persuaded the club to advance its decision by as much as two years, a club spokeswoman confirmed Thursday.

“As long as your dog is capable, and we are sure your dog is capable, we are happy to welcome the dog,” AKC spokesperson Brandi Hunter Munden told Newsday.

Rascal owner Lark Shlimbaum, 72, of Bay Shore, whose dogs have been competing for about 15 years, said: “I am just delighted.”

Shlimbaum says she has spoken to hundreds of people about the AKC’s now-lifted ban – and that she also ran a Facebook campaign seen by thousands. This time at least, staying positive has paid off.

“Lark has contributed a lot to a great social media campaign,” Munden said.

The AKC also relented after Newsday asked questions on Wednesday.

Rascal excels in this sport, first on all fours and now on three legs.

Before his right hind leg was amputated in June, he qualified as the nation’s fastest Norwich Terrier in the 100 meters after a lure in the AKC 2020 Quick Running Aptitude Test, have declared its owners.

In September, as a tripod, taking on four-legged dogs, he put in a perfect performance on a level 5 jumper course – the most difficult.

Rascal may well match his owners’ emotions when he returns to AKC competitions. “He’s dying to do this,” Shlimbaum said, later adding, “Now he’s going to compete in December; I’m so happy to cry.”

Shlimbaum practiced law for decades with her husband, Don. And while he might not be circling the ring with them, her husband was the one who brought that request for Rascal’s first AKC tryout in the mailbox as soon as the club reversed course.

With the company increasingly recognizing the rights of people with disabilities, Carrie DeYoung, AKC director of agility, emailed the move “natural growth.” She added, “As safety is our number one concern, it took a lot of deliberation and research to make sure we include all dogs.”

Famous for its annual Westminster Midtown Manhattan show, the nonprofit AKC has come under increasing pressure from its advocates to focus on confirmation, for example, and allow local clubs to decide whether ‘they must follow Europe’s example by banning ear cutting and tail docking. .

Rascal returns to the ring during the AKC competitions on December 4 and 5 at Bay Shore’s training center, Doggie U K9 Academy, where he trained, pretty much every Monday night, with his 11-year-old compatriot, Norwich, Wiley, who tends to favor a slower pace.

The young person is the one who can hardly contain his enthusiasm; he often barks in the car on the way – and throughout the competition, his owner said. “It’s really a team sport between the handler and the dog,” DeYoung said. “They often communicate quietly about their dance throughout the course.”

To avoid abusing his only back leg, Shlimbaum now enters Rascal in a four-inch high jump class, half the height he previously measured.

It was in December 2020 that a stage 2 soft tissue sarcoma germinated on Rascal’s leg. Surgery and radiation therapy seemed to stop the cancer, but in June it came back. Amputation has become the only treatment option – and tests show the cancer has not spread.

AKC’s advisory committee that assesses policy developments was not scheduled to meet until 2023; the club acted so quickly, Munden explained, in part because the committee was already considering opening their trials to dogs who have shown they can handle the rigors, even as novices.

Tripods were initially rejected because dogs need to be “functionally healthy,” she said. However, the AKC is now ready to rely on the owners’ judgment, she said, although judges will stay the trial of any dog ​​if they appear reluctant or ill.

Referring again to Shlimbaum, Munden said, “It’s partly her and partly because we… compete, we have to make sure we’re inclusive. “

“This dog,” said Donna Bielawski, a professional photographer who captured Rascal’s winning jumps and whose Miniature Australian Shepherd is in the competition as well, “been through so much, it’s really awesome.”

The Kennel Club of Philadelphia National Dog Show will require all spectators to be vaccinated and at least 12 years of age.

The dog show will be held at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks on November 20-21. All participants must show full proof of COVID-19 vaccination, and children under 12 will not be allowed to attend.

Children cannot come even if they have received a dose of the vaccine on the date of the show, as they will not yet be fully immunized.

The dog show returns in 2021 with more than 2,000 show dogs from 190 breeds. It will also include agility dogs, therapy dogs and demonstrations.

In 2020, spectators were not allowed to watch the show in person due to concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic.

The National Dog Show and the Kennel Club of Philadelphia made the decision to require vaccines based on recommendations from national, state and local authorities, according to a press release.

Participants are encouraged to register for CLEAR, an app that allows participants to create a digital immunization card, before the event. Personal immunization cards from CDC, or a photo of the card on a smartphone and photo ID are also acceptable.

The show is open to the public from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily at 100 Station Avenue Oaks, Pa., Just 15 minutes from the King of Prussia Mall. To attend in person, tickets and details can be found here. Admission costs $ 16.

Saturday’s show will also air on NBC10 Thanksgiving Day from noon to 2 p.m. Former Seinfeld actor John O’Hurley will be host the show alongside Mary Carillo and David Frei.

The show will benefit the favorite charities of The Kennel Club of Philadelphia. Previous recipients include AKC Canine Health Foundation, University of Pennsylvania Veterinary School and Initiate, which provides support to people playing the sport of purebred dogs who are suffering from a fatal or terminal illness.

Grand Island Kennel Club is growing.

The All Breed Club is building an addition to its secure site at 2860 E. Bismarck Road.

The addition will increase its interior space to better accommodate a full-size obedience ring, said Kennel Club board chairman Doug Jensen, who has been involved with the club since 1973.

“Our ring is now regulation size, but we’re using part of it as seating for the chairs and storage for our equipment, stuff along the wall, so we’re going to add an addition,” he said. “This will allow us to use the entire floor we currently have for training. “

The addition will be 24 feet by 26 feet wide and is expected to cost around $ 50,000.

The Grand Island Kennel Club doesn’t train dogs, in particular, Jensen explained.

“We train people to train their dogs, so that we can have a safer community, which is really what dogs have become,” he said. “All dogs need to fit into the community and in order to do that they need to be well trained. “

The club supports purebred dogs, but trains all dogs in all phases, “from puppy to advanced obedience training and competition”.

“We train them from the time they are babies until they are old,” Jensen said, “and we try to train people to be stewards of their races, so that we have a safe community. “

Pet owners are being warned of the consequences of fireworks, as research has shown a 100% increase in the number of missing dogs around Bonfire Night.

The Kennel Club highlights the stress and behavioral changes our puppies face due to loud bangs and colorful displays.

When fireworks go off, many dogs become upset and scared, with owners seeing signs of stress, such as pacing, yelling, crying, excessively panting, licking, chewing, and drooling.

Research from the dog protection organization found that 30% of owners think their four-legged friend is terrified of fireworks and almost half of owners notice their dog is scared.

Bonfire night can have a negative impact on the mood and behavior of thousands of dogs, but it is also a source of stress for owners.

Almost two-thirds of owners are more concerned about their dog’s well-being during fireworks season than at any other time of year.

A tenth also claims that their dog has already tried – or succeeded – to escape during a fireworks display, which can have tragic consequences.

Data from Petlog, the UK’s largest microchip database, shows the number of missing dogs doubles during the week of the fireworks celebrations.

Mark Beazley, Managing Director of The Kennel Club, said: “Fireworks, especially if they are unexpected, can have devastating and long-term effects, with dozens of dogs missing each year and thousands more. showing obvious signs of fear and distress.

“Every dog ​​reacts differently and it is important that dog owners, especially those with young puppies, know what to do and how they can help their dogs get through fireworks season safely, and that those who participate in exhibitions are considerate of the nation’s pets. . “

To help dogs get through fireworks season as safely and comfortably as possible, The Kennel Club has put together a few tips for owners:

  • Get them used to the sounds of fireworks by playing them fireworks sounds in the weeks leading up to night
  • Close all doors and windows and keep your curtains closed to block out flashing lights.
  • Create a safe space for your dog filled with his favorite toys and blankets.
  • Distract your dog by keeping the television or radio on.
  • Reward their calm behavior with treats or by playing games.
  • Keep your dog’s microchip details up to date to make it easier for you to find your dog in case they run away.
  • Try to act and behave normally, as your dog will detect any unusual behavior.
  • Keep calm, happy, and cheerful as this will send positive signals to your dog.
