Hound Association 2011

Ardvreck Ismelia made her debut and qualified for Crufts 2012

Ismelia made a very promising debut and showed her head off. I was also very pleased with the way she powered her way around the ring and delighted when she took a creditable 2nd behind a lovely Dialynne bitch.

WKC 2011

Ardvreck Ismelia : 1st show (HA) qualifies for Crufts 2012.

2nd show (WKC) qualifies for Crufts for life by winning the RCC from minor puppy


Ardvreck Hanover (Hannah)

Having decided to make a show of me at the HA Hannah had some intensive training prior to the WKC. This paid off as she showed really well and qualified for Crufts 2012 by taking 2nd (from an entry of 10) in the puppy class. Considering she is giving 3 months to the other pups I was very pleased whith this.

Denmark 2011

On the 30th July 2011 I had the pleasure of judging the beagles at the Danish Kennel Club show at Vejen. CACIB and Best of Breed went to Skansehoj's Wendy BOB with her daughter Skansehoj's Fantasy Devil winning the CAC. RCACIB was Free Stride's Waltzing Pumpkin and RCAC Sopwith Camels Oh Darlin, who gained her DKCH the day before under Jenet Lee.

In dogs CACIB and BOS went to Basic Drive's Game Set And Match with Dufosee Ronnie winning RCACIB and the CAC. RCAC went to a very promising youngster Free Stride's Busy Appointment


The hospitality shown to us by the Danish Kennel Club and the Danish exhibitors was exceptional. Thank you to you all.
