Welcome 5 NEW Members

This week, we are really pleased to welcome 5 new members to The Bolognese Dog Club UK. New members include the charming Peter Young, who has judged Bolognese several times. Peter is also well known in the Grooming World as a judge and exhibitor and owner of Peter’s Posh Pets in London. Peter’s profile makes good reading in the Members Directory, where all members have their own personal profile. We are also welcoming Magenta Rose, Brian Thatcher, Denise Turner and Tanya MacKrell. Amongst these 5 new members, you will find dedicated enthusiasts with many years of experience, breeding, showing and caring for our delightful breed. Tanya also owns and shows Australian Silky Terriers and has 3 young daughters to care for too!

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.
