The Pennine & Scottish French Bulldog Association

FORTHCOMING EVENTS

Here at The Pennine and Scottish French Bulldog Association we like to arrange a lot of different activities that involve our Frenchies and their owners.

We have regular walks at various locations around the Pennine's and Scotland, where our members and their dogs meet up for a day of Frenchie fun. We arrange shows, from fun dog shows where your dog can sport its latest outfit, to open shows and championship shows. We also like to involve ourselves with the Kennel Club's Good Citizen Scheme, where our four legged friends learn to be on their best behaviour, even though that sometimes can be a bit tricky with Frenchies.

Our members also get invited to attend various talks and seminars, these can be health related, show related or anything else our members tell us they have an interest in learning more about.

Breed Judging Seminar

The P&SFBA held a very successful Breed Judging Seminar on Saturday 20th May at the SKC Championship Show. It was very well attended with one candidate flying in from Southern Ireland specially for the seminar.

The format and content of the day followed that of the seminars held by the FBCE and M&NFBC with a Powerpoint presentation on the Breed Standard, followed by group mentoring of the standard applied to actual dogs. The mentors were Gordon and Ellen Drummond, Mick Gordon and Jackie Mavro-Michaelis.

After lunch the candidates then judged 5 dogs and wrote critiques followed which they then presented to the mentors for feedback. Finally their written tests were assessed and all successful candidates left with a very smart certificate designed and made by Abbie Cund. Thanks to Abbie.

A big thanks must also go not only to the mentors for giving their time and expertise so freely, but also to Sue Longdon, Kathy Ferguson and her friend Estelle and Mr & Mrs Kaspororwitz for lending  their dogs and handling dogs for the candidates.

The biggest thank you must go to the patient and well-behaved Frenchies who allowed themselves to be examined so many times by so many people.
