Discover Dogs is held by The Kennel Club twice a year in March and November.
In March it is held at the NEC, Birmingham at Crufts and in October at ExCel, London.
Breed clubs are asked to provide volunteers to bring along their dogs and promote their breed. We have manned the stand since 2007, at both venues and it is a brilliant place to come and meet Swedish Vallhunds “in the flesh”.
The dogs really enjoy being the centre of attention and many people have chosen Vallhunds as their breed after meeting them for the first time at Discover Dogs. The people who man the stand really enjoy talking about our lovely dogs, so please come along and say “Hello”. Our Discover Dogs coordinator Sharon Sibley is always looking for volunteers, so if you’d like to help out on one of the days please contact her.

The KC are now only going to uphold endorsements that are put in place using their new template. This is available to print off from the KC website. You will have to keep a copy as well as provide the new owners with a copy. There will be a transition period until Jan 2023, and the KC will issue an alert to breeders before this comes into full force.

In memory of Jacqui Bayliss

Jacqui Bayliss passed away
She lost a battle, fought till the end
On the 22nd of January 2018, yesterday
I lost a dear friend, the Swedish Vallhund breed lost a legend

Her family will miss her every day
Jacqui will be with me by Hurstfield kennels is my lines
I will remember her laugh, her singing in the car being on the way
Memories of our friendship will stay and be mine

Au revoir my friend
I will miss our discussions about the breed
A precious friendship till the end
I miss you already…. indeed

Jacqui Bayliss passed away
Much too early, yesterday
