Breeders Group Success

Article text
We had a spectacularly good time at Paignton Championship Show. Pamatka won BOB, Havoc was RBB, Tomas RBD and Vilem BP.

We then entered the Breeders competition for the first time. For this you need a team of three or four dogs, all having the same kennel name. Usually there are only one or two Ridleys competing at any show as we live so far apart, but with three present on the day we thought we would have a go.

The team went really well together, partly due to the handlers (Judy Lewis took Tomas in the breed competition and Emma Pullen in the group) and together we won the Terrier Group.

This gave us 7 points towards the 25 needed to qualify for the finals at Crufts. We are going to make a real effort and see if we can do that. It will be tight - but it is doable, so we'll have a go.
