Welsh Kennel Club-Terrier Day Saturday 16th August-online entries close today at midday. Judge for Glen of Imaal Terriers is Val Harley.
Next week is July which means it’s under 2 weeks until the Eye Testing and Fun Dog Show at Swineshead. The eye testing is being done by Peter Bedford and appointments are needed-Sheila on email@example.com will sort that out for you. The Fun Dog Show Day will see all monies going to Glen Health and Hearing Dogs for the Deaf so raffle prizes are needed. Let Jean on firstname.lastname@example.org know about that. Finally if you are a Glen of Imaal Terrier owner don’t forget that swabs will be available to enable your dog to be included in the DNA archive. Alison on efghealth@gmail is the lady for assistance there.
Paignton Championship Show online entries close at midday today. Glen of Imaal Terrier judge (Terrier Day August 2nd) is Ken Bartlett.
Have a look at this and, whilst doing it, vote for the Glen of Imaal Terrier!
….maybe 3 Glen of Imaal Terrier judges from last year might like to take note that a critique IS required if judging under KC rules!
The Kennel Club would like to remind judges at Championship and Open breed club shows that a written critique for the first two placings in each class must be submitted to at least one of the weekly United Kingdom canine journals.…
The Kennel Club has been made aware of instances of judges submitting critiques to other outlets, including Facebook pages, assuming this complies with Kennel Club Regulations, and would like to remind all judges of the correct procedure as stated in Kennel Club show regulations, which is as follows:
‘All judges at Championship Shows and Open Breed Club Shows must produce a written critique for the first two placings in each class, and will dispatch these to at least one of the weekly United Kingdom Canine journals.’
The Kennel Club has published a set of FAQs which cover the most common questions addressed to the Kennel Club by both exhibitors and judges in regard to show regulations, which can be viewed at www.thekennelclub.org.uk/activities/dog-showing/already-involved-in-dog-showing/exhibitors and www.thekennelclub.org.uk/activities/dog-showing/already-involved-in-dog-showing/judges respectively.
Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Secretary, said: “Whilst the vast majority of judges are following the correct procedure, there have been instances of critiques being submitted to various places online, including Facebook pages and club websites, rather than to either one of the weekly dog papers which should be the case.
“Judges are welcome to add their critiques to social media and other outlets but must also remember to send them, preferably first, to either Our Dogs and/or Dog World as required by Kennel Club regulations.”

Some Glen of Imaal Terrier folk were out and about over the longest weekend of the year. At Swords Championship Show Abberann Phelan was Best of Breed and his sister Dervla took Best Bitch. Blackpool saw a first BOB for Donvaleset Liffy at Arkview with Best Opposite to Young May Moon. Glentyrs Lady Isabella at Castlerock was awarded a Group 4 in Central Florida.
Well done everybody!!
Kathy George would like to thank everybody for the cards and messages regarding Fred. The flowers were really appreciated as they came the day after the funeral, always a horrible time. Things are slowly coming together again.
