The ESA Double Championship Show is being held on 15th August 2021 at the Kennel Club Building, West Hall, Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire, CV8 2LZ. Schedules are now available to download from Fosse Data and our sponsor will be Challenge Premium Nutrition for Dogs. Our judges this year are Penny Williams (Bournehouse) for Show 1 and Jenny Miller (Feorlig) Show 2 with full sets of CC's available at both. With the double show being on the same day we have decided to reduce entry fees to £12.00 with subsequent entries of £3.00 for members, non-member entry fees will be £14.00 and subsequent entry of £3.00. Catalogues have also been reduced to £2.50 prepaid. The show opens at 9.00am with judging for Show 1, bitches at 10.00am. Dog judging for Show 2 will commence at 10.45am and for something different, once the first sets of CC's have been awarded the judges will change rings, ensuring that dogs & bitches remain in the same ring all day.

We hope to hold both shows will outside at the front of the building (weather permitting). I am sorry having to base both shows on current Covid-19 regulations, but hopefully by August rules should have been relaxed. If so, we will be able meet up, socialise and talk with everyone, but most importantly all be together with our beautiful dogs once again.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE KENNEL CLUB REGARDING AWARDS GAINED AT ALL LICENSED EVENTS

The Kennel Club would like to apologise to exhibitors/competitors at forthcoming licensed events that the operational issues currently being experienced will impact upon the issuing of award certificates by our office across all activities, e.g. Challenge Certificates, Warrants and Champion titles.

For this reason, we are reminding everyone that it is permitted to enter events or classes where eligibility is dependent upon awards and/or titles which are pending confirmation, e.g. moving from Limit to the Open class at dog shows. Indeed exhibitors must do this. Also, in the case of Champion Stakes, exhibitors do not need to wait for their dog’s champion status to be confirmed before entering.

For any issues which may arise regarding eligibility, please email  KCNotifications@thekennelclub.org.uk.     We appreciate the patience and forbearance of exhibitors and competitors at this time and will provide updates in due course at thekennelclub.org.uk/resumptionofevents.

It is with great sadness that I have to inform you of the passing of yet another long serving ESA member. Angela Tuck (Couldoran) died early this morning (14th July) from Ovarian & Bowel Cancer after a 3-week fight. Our thoughts and deepest sympathies go to Angela's family and friends.
During her 40 years as a member of the ESA Angela made up two show champions. Sh Ch Silk 'N' Honey of Couldoran was born in 1984, bred by Mr & Mrs R Hales. By Sh Ch Bournehouse Dancing Master x Kenandra Romantic Style she gained her title in 1990. Her second title winner in partnership with Mr Richard Curtis (Marlowsett) was homebred Sh Ch Couldoran Cattleya born in 2003. She gained her title in 2009 and was by Sh Ch Mariglen Valentino x Couldoran Cattalina, a great, great, great, granddaughter of Silk 'N' Honey.

Vulnerable British and Irish Breeds Press release
Following the popularity of the Vulnerable British and Irish Breeds Competition in 2019, the Kennel Club has announced that it will take place again this year with a new format, culminating in a grand final at Crufts 2021.

In a move designed to broaden the scope of the competition and offer more opportunities to qualify, BOB winners from the Scottish Kennel Club (May), Welsh Kennel Club and Belfast championship shows will now be eligible to compete in the final, along with BOB winners from the usual selected group championship shows.

Also in this press release the Kennel Club has an article about 'Puppies for sale: finding the right dog' and is concerned with protecting those breeds of dog which are of British origin and are considered to be vulnerable i.e. those whose numbers are declining and whose status within the world of dogs has diminished over a number of years.
