Two lucky Dachshund owners completed our Health Survey and won tickets to Crufts 2015

Courtesy of the Kennel Club I had two pairs of day passes for Crufts 2015.  To win these tickets, you needed to complete the Breed Council’s DachsLife 2015 breed lifestyle survey.  Two lucky owners were randomly selected from the survey’s UK respondents at 6 p.m. on Saturday 21st February 2015.  They’ll each be getting a pair of tickets in the post in the next few days.  [Don’t forget, the Health Survey is still open and you can see some of the emerging results here]

Raisin wins Best Puppy in Show at the Dachshund Club Open Show 2015

Thanks to Breed judge Phil Rollinson and Best in Show judge Trevor Hayward for thinking so highly of “Raisin” (Sunsong Pine Nut).  This was the first time Sue has shown Raisin and we were delighted to be awarded Best Puppy in Show.  Raisin is 11 months old.

9 years of Wire Dachshund judges from the KC’s “Find a Judge”

The KC has recently added some new features to its “Find a Judge” service on its website.  You can now see every judge’s appointment history going back to 2006 and their future approved appointments.  A useful feature for committees selecting judges is that each judge’s entry and the year’s average number of dogs entered are also available.

The data will also be helpful in highlighting judges who have been approved to award CCs in Dachshunds but have not recently had appointments, or in some cases have not judged one of the Dachshund varieties at all.  Shows held in parts of the country, or days of the week, that historically have drawn lower entries may also be able to use the data to select judges that may improve their entries.
