Lucca’s First Show

Club member Caroline Cockwell took her puppy (just 6-months) to his first show in Wales. She was amazed and thrilled to come away with the Best Puppy in breed rosette. Caroline was a little overwhelmed to go on to show little Lucca in the Puppy Toy Group later in the day, but did really well. What a great start for a new exhibitor, she must have thought she was dreaming. Caroline said, “apart from visiting Crufts this year to watch the Bolognese I had never been to a dog show before”. Caroline added, “I have been showing and breeding cats for 12-yrs so this was quite a change to what I am used to”.

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.
