I raise funds for Morgan’s Dog Rescue which is a rescue centre in Alston in Cumbria that takes in failed working collies primarily and rehomes then into working sports homes such as obedience and agility. I always help her around this time of year in the hope we get enough funds to take us through the winter! It’s pretty bleak up in Alston in the Winter !!
I am a qualified human and canine massage therapist and as part of my
work I also run canine fitness workshops following a muscular assessment and
massage. I plan to travel throughout the country and Northern
I bought in a border collie pup in January this year and as part of his pack
I received CSJ treats to train him, he loved them and I’ve continued to buy
them. As part of my demonstrations I show handlers from all disciplines how to
keep their dogs in peak performance for their chosen dog sport.
I also help out Team Scotland in the Inter Regional events at Crufts each year, to raise funds to buy them sweatshirts and new collars and leads for the dogs who qualify. This year I am also running an online photo competition to raise funds for the Scottish Inter Regional Team event for Crufts 2019.

Hello, just wanted to say a massive than you to CSJ for sending us so many goodies for our Calverhall Family Day dog show on 2/9/18.
We had an excellent day. The dog show is part of a much bigger village fate (called the Calverhall Family Day), so we have lots of families attending, many of whom bring along their dog. We had a total of 59 entrants spread across 10 classes, with lots of them entering several classes.
Our judge for the day was Amanda Austin, from near by Audlem. Amanda shows Saluki’s and Afghan Hounds. She was excellent, spending time with each dog and their owners and picking some really worthwhile winners. She said the hardest class to judge was the ‘Dog the Judge would most like to take home’..! With 30 dogs entered it was a very difficult choice and I’m sure she would have taken them all home, but in the end she choose ‘Daisy’, a brindle whippet, in first place. Best in Show went to Coco, a chocolate brown working cocker, owned by Guy Frankfort.
I have attached several pictures from the day, but there are more you are welcome to use on out FaceBook page – www.facebook.com/calverhalldogshow
Thank you again for your generosity.
Wonderful photos fromAngela Bragg at Wigton DTC “Thank you again for your generous sponsorship, the show went very well although the weather was a bit wet on Sunday… Maureen Harvey 😂
Here are couple of photographs from our Open Show which CSJ sponsored in July.
Also to give you an update on Hector (Hernwood Achilles at Ettrick) – he has now enough points for his Junior Warrant, and continues to win all his classes at Open Shows and Championship Shows. He gained Best of Breed at Paignton Championship Show (we don’t have CC’s at this show but meant he got into the big ring) and topped a very successful weekend by winning the Junior Stakes class at National Gundog Championship Show.
Hector also continues to be the top puppy in the breed at over half way through the show year.
Many thanks for your continued support.
At Lunartico, we did have a fantastic start to the show year with Galaxy opening new championships, winning:
- 1 x CAC
- 1 x CACIB
- 1 x Best Female
- 1 x Reserve Best of Breed
and Leo opening a new championship and adding points towards his international championship, winning:
- 2 x CAC
- 1 x CACIB
- 1 x Reserve Best Male
- 1 x Best Male
- 1 x Best of Breed.
In the photo above, you can see the trophies and prizes we were awarded, and one of Leo & Shane Best of Breed and me & Galaxy Reserve Best of Breed. It’s so lovely to see both of them in the ring together and doing so well. The other exhibitors were really friendly and welcomed us with open arms, and took some lovely photos for us.
Unfortunately, on the way home, in -5 snow and icy conditions, I slipped on icy steps and broke my left wrist, so was unable to show for 3 months, which meant we had to miss Crufts and a few other shows we had booked. But we have slowly started getting back to the show ring now.
In May, we attended the Royal Welsh Premier Open Show with Ivan winning 1st Open and Best of Breed. Ivan was also placed in his classes at Bath Championship Show and Three Counties Championship Show, but typical sled dog he has now blown his coat for the summer lol.
We have a few European trips booked over the next few months, so will keep you updated on our travels. We also have a new addition to the show team joining us, a Siberian husky puppy who belongs to a good friend of ours, who has entrusted us to take him with us on our travels and campaign him for her, so it will be a new breed and a new challenge for us.
We are also heading back to the continent later in the year to finish national and international championships there with Leo, Ivan and Galaxy.
In August we are attending the Alaskan Malamute Working Association (AMWA) event down in Salisbury. We will be taking 4 of the dogs down with us..
October and November we are looking at the Euro Show amongst other exhibitions, but we are also planning a litter, so again we will keep you update. In winter, Shane is also planning on a working trip to France with 2 of the dogs, to do their next level working title with the Alaskan Malamute Club of America.
Thor is doing really well and enjoying his well-earned break from the shows. He’s developing nicely now, and his adult coat is starting to come through so he should be ready in a few months to start challenging for his imperial title. He is getting really big now, he’s 19 months and already 6.6kgs! must be all that Command Purrformance he’s eating! The dogs adore him and it’s so lovely watching them all play together. Galaxy has been like a mum to him, they are inseparable.
Well known Borzoi exhibitor Margaret Masterman was in the perfect position to resolve her bitch’s tiny appetite problem when becoming Brand Ambassador for CSJ.
Fleur (Quarenta’s Life’s A Dream With Santerman – pictured here winning PGB at Crufts this year) hasn’t looked back since being fed exclusively on CSJ CP30. Margaret says, “It’s the only product she will eat enough of to maintain her body condition – she has a tiny appetite like me!!”
Fleur is 4 years old and was only lightly shown due to family commitments over the last 3 years but has been to 3 prestigious shows this year and won Post Graduate at each one … Crufts, Northern Borzoi Ch. Show, and Birmingham National.
Margaret chose her from a litter of nine bred by Steven Morgan out of Zafonic Aquilla Over Quarenta by Dolsaca Cappuccino Over Quarenta.
With the body condition finally resolved Margaret is looking forward to pursuing Fleur’s career and CSJ commented that they are delighted to hear the results but wouldn’t like to commit to helping Margaret’s own tiny appetite!
