Bolognese Dog Club UK 2nd Companion Show 21st May 2017

Here is the schedule for our 2nd Companion Show to be held under licence from The Kennel Club. The show is in aid of Pets In Therapy (PAT DOGS) and the main sponsor is Garston Veterinary Group. Last year’s show was a great success and we are excited again for this year. We have scheduled 2 Bolognese classes and a Havanese and Coton De Tulear as well as 5 other Pedigree classes, Handling and Novelty Classes. We have three judges Daphne Fielding (Pedigree), Vikki Marshall RVN (Handling) and Sian Naylor BVSC MRCVS (Novelty). Light refreshments will be available. We are awarding lovely rosettes to 5th place!

There is a £10 prize for the winners of BOTH Bolognese classes, sponsored by The British Bolognese Club. Royal Canin have also agreed to sponsor the show, so there will be extra goodies for winners.

You can download both the schedule for the show and a poster to promote the show at the sites MEMBERS DOWNLOAD area.

We are looking forward to seeing as many members and their friends as possible on the day!

FOUNDER MEMBER Belstown Bolognese. I live with 3 Bolognese and live in Burgess Hill, West Sussex. I own 3 Bolognese and show the youngest Harry. I also work part time as a support worker. I originally chose the breed for my daughter to show as a Junior Handler, but she has grown up and number of dogs have grown too! I originally trained as a Veterinary Nurse, as well as managing large show/breeding/boarding & quarantine kennels. I progressed to the commercial sector in sales and marketing of pet products, including running my own PR agency for pet related companies. Along with a few other like minded enthusiasts, we started this club in August 2015 as we felt the breed needed an information centre and a friendly group where people could share their views and learn more about the breed, so I started The Bolognese Dog Club UK. I have bred 7 litters, but don't breed currently.
