Thomas Prince – despite not having been to a show since 2019, Tom won Beginner at Coventry DTC then followed it next day by winning his second beginner at our show, taking him out of the Beginner class. He also came 6th in his first Novice class.
In the 24 years since Ceri Rundle and her father were struggling to find good food at an affordable price for their working Border Collies the word has spread about their CSJ products throughout all canine activities.
Ceri says, “As dyed in the wool owners, breeders and competitors we truly understand the varying needs of dogs within the now huge variety of dog sports from flyball to gundogs and even dancing with dogs.”
She goes on, “We feed the most Champions in the most sports as well as pets which themselves have particular needs such as defence from fleas and lice (Billy No Mates!herbs), or Calm Down! (our herb supplement aimed at dogs in stressful situations such as thunder or fireworks).”
It makes all the years of commitment worthwhile when we hear from happy owners about their successes, typical of which are …
Canisports competitor Chelsea-Anne Lee who won the 2021 / 2022 Championship at Newnham in two categories – Champion 4 Dog Rig (Tony with Ted, Wally, Kai and Nero) and Champion Male Bikejor (Tony racing Nala). Chelsea-Anne told us, ‘Our team as you know is made up of 6 rescue sheepdogs and a staffy x husky. As the interest in canisports grows there will always be a desire for purpose bred dogs for the sport (that’s what makes it such a spectacle to watch) however we are keen to show that rescue dogs can compete just as well and ultimately provide plenty of fun whilst doing so.’
Debra Harker with her beautiful Gordon Setter, Hector – Sh Ch Hernwood Achilles at Ettrick JW – who sent us this photo and comments, ‘Hector gained his 6th CC at Birmingham National on Saturday, as ever fed on CSJ CP21 and Salmon oil. Lots of lovely comments about how good he looks and I know what you put in counts so much.’
Ceri concludes, “People’s dogs mean so much to them and, as grass roots owners ourselves, we understand why, so will consistently strive to offer the very best in nutrition at the best possible price to help give their dogs full, healthy and happy lives.”
The United St Bernard Breed Open Show was held in April 2022 and CSJ kindly provided CSJ Salmon Oil and TurmerTinc! for the winners in each category.

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.
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.
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

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.
Hector has finished the year as a Show Champion with the icing on the cake being him gaining his 4th CC at the British Gordon Setter Club Ch. Show and Best Opposite Sex in show .
This weekend he has then gained his 5th CC and gone Reserve Best in Show and Best Opposite Sex at The Gordon Setter Club of Scotland’s Ch Sh and then topping it off by going Best in Show at their Open Show the following day.
A long and tiring weekend but amazing results for this special boy. Still on CP24 and CSJ Salmon oil 😊
I’m thrilled to say Hector got his important third CC and BOB to make him a Show Champion and subject to Kennel Club confirmation, he will be known as Show Champion Hernwood Achilles at Ettrick JW. Exclusively fed on CSJ since a puppy and current being fed on CP24. Absolutely over the moon 😊
