Louis!

If your Schnauzer is Best in Show at the county fair or CRUFTS, share it with all of us. You will find show listings along with results from the various dog shows around the country. You will more than likely spot a few members in the show ring.

Louis!

Post by tombaker » 19 May 2014, 15:30

This part of the forum seems to be a bit quiet these days, but just thought I'd share that at The Birmingham National Dog Show, Louis won his first Challenge Certificate. This is awarded to one dog and bitch that the judge deems, 'to be of such outstanding merit as to be worthy of the title champion'. From such a big enter, Im so pleased with him :D Only another two more to go!

Sounds brilliant Tom :-bd

But for those of us that don't follow the show world too closely can you explain why he needs another two :(

Congratulations Tom :-bd After so many really great results I am so glad you finally achieved a CC - hopefully the other 2 will not be long in coming and you can add a title to Louis' name. He really is maturing beautifully :)

Under Kennel Club rules a dog or bitch needs 3 CCs (achieved at championship shows where CCs were on offer) awarded by 3 different judges ( and at least one of these must be after the dog/bitch is 12 months of age) in order to gain the title of Champion. You can then add Ch. before the registered kennel name to indicate that status. :)

Fantastic news, well done Tom and Louis. I wonder where the rest of Lottie and Louis' littermates are and how they are doing. :) :) :)

I offer my advice freely, but I am not an expert, breeder, groomer or behaviourist. It is simply my experience of raising pups in a way that seems to make sense.

Well done. Will he be a stud dog in future, or now even?

Louis has matured into the best little man ever, he's stunning and deserves everything, he will get his next two Cc's without a doubt ;)

I should probably ask Liz, I was telling her about Lottie's love of water a couple of weeks ago. Their mum is doing well at 8 though :D

I have no plans to stud him, even though he holds a clear eye certificate and has now proved his worth in terms of 'type'. There are breeders out there who can do a much better job at breeding than I ever could :)

Congratulations! He's such a handsome little boy, I knew it was only a matter of time. And he's matured so much in the last few months. :YMPARTY: :YMPARTY:
