Best In Show Bell & Jeffries’s Tizine Wielkopolski Bernardyn for Bellfries

A dog of excellent type, a beautiful head and lovely expression, Correct in bite, good muzzle length, nice dark eyes and correct in skull. Neck length just right, Nice deep chest of good width with correct shoulder placement. Good spring to ribs ,level topline and strong loin, god curve to croup just right in rear angles, well musculed and had good bone throughout. He moved with purpose, drive and power. A very beautiful dog who drew my eye to award him Best male and Best in Show.

Reserve Best In show Deegan & Grainger’s Chandlimore Smoking Gun

Deegan & Grainger’s Chandlimore Smoking Gun 2yr old male who makes a good picture standing, good breed type with plenty of bone throughout. Liked his head with short muzzle, good bite and just the right amount of stop, nice neck length, body of substance, a correct structure in front with his depth and width of chest just right, a good topline and rib to loin ratio, moved very well and deserved his RBD & RBIS.

Best Puppy O’Reilly’s Fantasira Welkopolski Bernardyn Strelillys

At 11 months I found her a very nice puppy of excellent type. Overall, she made a good picture standing, quality headpiece, correct in muzzle with good bite, good dark eyes giving a lovely expression, stop and top skull good, nice length of neck, shoulder angulation correct Body of excellent width good in rear angles and well-muscled giving her good movement. BP BPIS.

Best Smooth Bell & Jeffries Ch Bellfries Smooth Jazz

I liked this female, she makes a lovely picture of balance and strength, A great head that was just right in muzzle depth and width, clean in mouth and eyes with tidy ears. A good shoulder in chest of depth and width, level topline, not as smooth over croup as I would like, strong in rear and good bone throughout, moved cleanly with reach and drive, strong contender for top honours today. BSIS.

A great testimonial for CP24 after Mandy Cubitt talked to Nicki, our Nutrition & Technical Manager

By Mandy Cubitt

As one of my Danes definitely wasn’t getting on with the Little Champ or the tripe, I took the plunge and started to change to one of your recommended foods pretty soon after you sent me your email… I chose CP24 as I’d looked at the ingredients and it looked like it had the highest % of meat- and as I used to have fab results on raw, that looked to be the best option.

OMG! What a difference – even on 1/4 CP24 at the beginning of transitioning them, you could see it was an improvement. I haven’t had a really good firm poop from any of the 4 since I moved from raw a while back. I can’t tell you how hard it’s been not to attach a photo to this email 🤪

They are now still only on 2/3 CP24, but in another week I’ll be fully swapped over. I planned on trying the herbs to see if they helped- but I didn’t need to, it’s been such a success.

Anyway- I just wanted to say I’m over the moon. I’ve recommended CP24 to all of the owners of my litter of puppies who my girl had 10 months ago… 

Fabulous. Many thanks for your help. I’ve now got 4 very happy Danes.

The Southern English Springer Spaniel Society Charity Virtual Dog Show

The Southern English Springer Spaniel Society Charity Virtual Dog Show

By Bev Nicholson and Eve Whitley

Thank you so much for being part of “Team SESSS” and generously sponsoring our recent Virtual Charity Dog Show in aid of The Alzeimers Society and Just Springers Rescue.  Once we had started to advertise the show online, a member of our society asking us to consider raising money for Ukraine.  After some thinking, we decided on having an extra two ‘Special Stakes’ classes with the money donated to these classes going to The Red Cross Ukraine Appeal.

Our show was a huge success with an amazing 629 entries raising an incredible £1,600

Without your amazingly generous and kind support we have no doubt that our show certainly would not have been the success it was.  So from the bottom of our hearts we thank you.

Already, English Springer owners are saying they cannot wait until our next show!  So fair warning….. we will be back to ask if you would be involved again next year!!!  

If you’d like to go onto our website, visit: sesss.org

You’ll see on the home page information about the show and if you click on the downloaded file, you’ll be able to view the winners of each class and the 7 judges comments on them.

Please find attached the winning photo of Supreme Best In Show, Marley and a photo his owner took of him with his rosettes!

Once again, thank you, we truly appreciate your help and support.

Clumber Spaniel Club 2021 Championship Show

Clumber Spaniel Club 2021 Championship Show

By Lesley Knowles, Honorary Secretary, Clumber Spaniel Club

October 3rd 2021

The Clumber Spaniel Club ran their third and final show of the year, the 2021 Championship Show, at Roade Village Hall on 3rd October. Although the club had tried to find an alternative date for this show to avoid a clash with the rearranged SKC show but unfortunately the logistics of postponement were too difficult to overcome.

The show was sponsored by CSJ dog foods who provided prizes of treat bones for every class winner and a bag of food for the Best in Show, Reserve Best in Show, Best Puppy in Show and Best Veteran in Show. The club is very appreciative of the generous sponsorship received from CSJ both for this show and our Open Show held in August.

Gordon Sutherland was our breed judge and he and his wife Eileen deserve special mention for undertaking the long journey from their home in Scotland to be with us for the day, all amidst the threat of fuel shortages! The show attracted an entry of 30 Clumbers who ranged from multi award winning dogs to those attending their first Championship show. Congratulations to Lee Cox and Vanitonia the Force Awakens on winning Best In Show.

Thank you to Eileen Sutherland for taking the photos of our show winners featured below.

Our Special Awards classes were run in the lunch break and had 8 entries. Sadly our scheduled judge, Ian Dawson, was unable to be with us to judge these classes but many thanks to Sue Graves who stepped in at short notice and enabled these classes to run as planned.

The show season died with the Covid epidemic. Now with the pick up of shows after lockdown ends, our charity fun shows are due to start and CSJ have supported South Warwickshire Canine Club with some products as prizes.

These were won by our members who entered the show. Everyone had a great time and we raised money for Dementia Care. We have 4 shows booked, starting with the latest fun show on 11th July 2021.

The next shows will be held on 8th, 22nd August and 19th September 2021– our Novelty Champ Show. We try to give a goodie bag to our winners 1st to 6th. We’ve enjoyed having your products before.

Mark and Karen Laker pack CSJ at the top of their suitcase

Mark and Karen Laker pack CSJ at the top of their suitcase

By Mark Laker

We’re going to The Orkney Islands and Scotland for our holiday this year for hiking, sightseeing and to catch up with Karen’s family. We’ve also booked a day’s sea kayaking exploring caves and wrecks around Orkney’s coast on what is labelled a ‘novice trip’.

Just before Covid we had joined our local canoe club

I did a lot of slalom canoeing in my youth and am still comfortable in a kayak. Karen on the other hand had a lot of enthusiasm and needed to work on her technique – in fact that is the problem, she only seems to be strong in one arm – going in a straight line alluded her for a while. Then she decided to apply her sports psychology skills, which look like this:

• Think of the dream – paddling in sea caves
• Consider what is needed to achieve that dream
• Break it down into a long term goal – written in current tense with emotions and senses: ‘The rugged beauty of the cliffs covered in nesting birds is mingled with their cries, the smell of the sea and the taste of salt water as we confidently paddle along the coastline.’

Then turn that dream into Short Term Goals written using SCCAMP criteria:

• Specific – By the middle of July I will be able to do a day’s sea kayaking in Orkney.
• Challenging – The trip I’ve booked is for novice paddlers – am I at novice level yet?
• Controllable – I can book sessions and the trip…not to be confused with controlling a sea kayak!
• Achievable – We are now regularly paddling for a couple of an hours at a time
• Measurable – The more I practise the stronger I will be so I will measure how many hours practice we get in.
• Personal – I spent many a happy holiday in Orkney on my uncle’s farm and would love to experience some of the islands from the sea.

Now I consider the skills required to reach those goals

One of the skills I need is to know how to deal with a capsize situation, which we practised last week. I felt my body strength needed to pull myself back into the kayak in water was lacking and so I find myself on a similar fitness regime to agility. Weight loss, planking and running for aerobic strength as well as time on water.

The rest of the holiday we plan to be sightseeing and walking the dogs.

CSJ products are going to be well used:

• Kibble – easy to feed – dry or wet if they need more fluid
• Billy No Mates keeping the fleas and ticks at bay
• Skinny Spray for protection before they go running in moorlands
• Skinny Cream in case of any irritations
• Skinny Dip Shampoo – Chic will surely find something to roll in and I must remember to order,
• DemBones – ideal if they get ‘deli belly’

I hope you have fun planning for your own holiday whether you use it to push yourself to achieve something or are just relaxing.
