On the 5th April, we are holding our Breed Appreciation Day (BAD) and Seminar at Bretford Village Hall, Saddlestones, Bretford, Warwickshire CV23 0JZ. The day is being run in collaboration with the Northern Portuguese Podengo Association and we thank them for all their work on this.
We're delighted to welcome Gabriela Veiga from Portugal to present the day. Gabriela is an international judge and a very accomplished speaker on the breed standard and all things Podengo. The BAD will be held according to Kennel Club Rules and Regulations and we welcome anyone who is interested in the Podengo to come along, look, listen and learn from a true expert. Full details about the Kennel Club rules around these events are at: https://www.thekennelclub.org.uk/training/judges-education/breed-show-judges-training/judges-competency-framework/breed-appreciation-days/
Attendance costs from £15 per person and you can find details and a booking form on the Club page, under 'Club notices...' Click the picture opposite to go there directly.
The Club regrets to announce that it has to cancel the Continuation AGM scheduled for 23rd February in Roade. This is due to certain procedural issues that we must resolve before the meeting can go ahead. Another date will be announced to all members in due course. Please accept our apologies for this short notice but we hope to arrange an alternative date very soon.
Mac continued his winning ways with a second victory in 2020 - well done to him and Jenny Wedge. Best Bitch was Eileen Segui's Grace - well done to them, too.
