Kaylo Van Het Balgzand is BIS at Spire Toy Dog

What a brilliant result for Bolognese and for club member Karen Golden with her girl Kaylo.

Kaylo Van Het Balgzand was Best of Breed and went on to win Best in Show at Spire Toy Dog Show on Sunday the 27th of May 2018 under judge Sheila Boyes. Owner Karen Golden said, “Super proud of my little treasure. Thank you to judge Sheila Boyes who thought so highly of my little girl.  And forever I thank my friend and breeder Carolien Jongejans for entrusting me with this special little girl”.

Spire Toy Dog is an OPEN SHOW for just toy breeds and every toy breed is represented. So, Kaylo beat every Best of Breed from every toy breed to be Best in Show. Kaylo won a lovely dog bed as well!

BREEDER & FOUNDER MEMBER Belstown Bolognese. I live with 3 Bolognese, show and breed and live in Burgess Hill, West Sussex. 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.
