Karen & Shirley on Discover Dogs Stand Crufts 2017

Club members Karen Golden, Shirley Hewitson and Cindy Costello reported a great day on the Discover Dogs Stand at Crufts on Saturday. Karen & Shirley are pictured here with their 2 lovely dogs Ammie & Tansy all dressed for the occasion. What a great effort The British Bolognese Club made with the stand and Karen & Shirley with the lovely matching outfits! Cindy said, “I was in my element talking about Bolognese all day and I have booked myself back in again next year to do the same”. 

If you love dogs, but can’t decide between a Labrador or a Lhasa Apso then the Discover Dogs area at Crufts – sponsored by Eukanuba – is the place to be. Discover Dogs hosts over 200 breeds of pedigree dog for you to meet. Talk to their knowledgeable owners and breeders. Gain first hand advice on grooming, training and whether the breed is right for you. You can be sure it will lead you to your perfect companion!

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.
