8TH APRIL 2017



The Keeshond Club held a 31 class Championship Show at the Kennel Club Building, Stoneleigh, with a numerically strong entry of 106 from 93 dogs.   

I can’t believe it is 17 years ago I judged at the Clubs truly special weekend event but they had the DVD to prove it! I kept glancing at the screen at the Keeshond Club Shop, enjoying going down memory lane but also reflecting on how many people we have lost in that time. I recall vividly the great atmosphere and also how hot it was. I was also a lot slimmer and 17 years younger! It is not possible to create the same atmosphere at the Kennel Club Building but Keeshonds are naturally happy dogs who engage well with their owners (especially if there is a treat involved!) At times they can be a bit vocal which is not great in an ‘echo-y’ hall. Constant feeding has crept into this breed, as well as many others, can I just say it is not necessary to be feeding your dog the whole time he/she is in the ring. Train your dog at home with rewards in order to get an alert response. But once you are in the ring just use a few little treats which can be given once the judge has gone over the dog. My pet hate is the handler who, just as you are about to look in the dogs mouth, decides to give the dog a piece of chicken, liver or cheese! Apart from having to wait for the dog to finish chewing, he/she is now hoping there may be more food coming their way so is not fully coordinated when moving, looking up at his owner and not getting into the desired brisk, straight gait.

I thought that some of the dog classes were quite difficult; size was certainly up and down the scale. There were some well up to size, also a few that weren’t masculine enough; others a bit short on the leg and also some too long in the body. Presentation in most was good, temperaments as always marvellous. Some were standing a bit flat footed, lazy in front movement and a bit soft in condition. There is no excuse now that spring is here so get your dogs’ fit, active and well muscled – they will put up with plenty of exercise.

This club is very lucky to have talented people in the kitchen and we were treated to a good choice of menu, enjoyed by all. I had two ace stewards who kept me on the straight and narrow with a nice bit of banter between us,

Thank you for having me, I enjoyed the whole day enormously.

Best in Show was Ch Neradmik All About The Boy for Watchkees, JW, ShCM; RBIS & BOS Ch Neradmik Miss Holly Berry; BP Torrikees Lust For Life; RBP Neradmik Canache at Bisukees; BV Wund-Ry Working for A Livin at Szaryk and RBV Ch Neradmik Chanel.

Quite an interesting family affair now I have had time to read the catalogue. The two CC winners have the same sire; the veteran bitch is the dam of the bitch CC winner who in turn is the dam of the best puppy dog.

Throughout the dog classes there was just one single dog absent – more absentees in the bitches with seasons and coat shedding. 


MPD 5 – 0

1st BPD Cristopher’s Neradmik Canache at Bisukees  7 ½ months, I hope he has done his growing early, masculine and self-assured. He took a bit of time to get into step, a happy and positive character, good head, needs to grow into his ears, correct coat, well proportioned; deep brisker, well handled.

2nd  Matthews’ Szaryk Dutch Bargemaster with Valindale, just 6 months, you could not help but fall for this one! Lovely silhouette – as yet in miniature – a real poser gazing up at his handler. Quality head, shiny dark eyes, good body and tail set, trotted his stuff totally relaxed. Still has a lot of puppy fluff, just needs to grow on. Utterly charming and he knew it! Sired by the best veteran.

3rd McBeath’s Samoykees Fly Me To The Moon.

PD 3 – 0

1st Harris’ Neradmik Cary Grant for Watchkees (Imp CAN) 10 months, comfortable winner, on his toes, well proportioned , attractive head, intelligent expression,  good coat and body, alert showman, moved well behind but toed in a little coming towards me.

2nd Bell’s Allforus Heart Throb, nearly a year, good head and eyes, plenty of coat, good body and ribs, showed with enthusiasm standing but a bit lazy on the move and not reaching out in front very much.        

3rd King’s Allforus Terrific Turtle, litter brother to 2nd.

JD 3 – 0

1st RCC Peck & Matthew’s Byquy Workin Boots, yearling dog in very good form, lovely head, keen expression, excellent outline and overall proportions. Good coat and ruff, high set tail, firm body, conditioned well, easy mover, happy showman, very well handled.  I see he is by today’s best veteran, excellent potential.

2nd Brunt’s Zandvoort Purrsonal Life, 15 months, quality youngster. I preferred the head and expression of 1st. Compact body, harsh jacket, well set and carried tail, splendid coat and condition, accurate mover.

3rd Lindsay’s Mezanda Merry Starshower, 17 months, not in full coat moved OK. A little plain in head.

SYD 3 – 0

1st Fusco’s Amikirs Lord Of The Bubbles, 20 months, rather fond of his own voice today, quality head, dark expressive eyes, fluent brisk mover, good coat and body, tight tail, alert showman.

2nd Miles, Dean & Isles’ Neradmik Kiss Chase with Lekkerbek, 22 months, handsome youngster with masculine head and outlook, used his neck to advantage, well groomed and conditioned, high set tail, well proportioned. Just needs to firm up in front movement which was just a bit lazy today. Out of the bitch CC winner by my 2nd in Open Dog. 

3rd Williams’ Mezanda Master of Secrets at Druitz.

ND 1 – 0

1st Brunt’s Zandvoort Mr Bond. Not a bad mover, this 7 month puppy, showed very well, just looked a bit stuffy in neck standing.

PGD 3 – 0

1st Hickson’s Kichigai’s Only The Lonley, 22 months, pretty dog, beautifully proportioned, great silhouette when he concentrated! Tended to pace and prance about but settled down to move properly long enough to win this class.

2nd Waller’s Brykin Big Chief. 4 ½ years. Harsh jacket, firm body, dark intelligent eyes, moved OK, steady showman.

3rd Bowden-Roche & Bowden’s Bargeway Point Plank. Well up to size, failed in front movement, carrying plenty of weight, all male head.   

LD 10 – 1

1st Bennet’s Byquy Rich Gent. Won the biggest class and best class so far. 2 years, well schooled showman with an excellent outline, well proportioned, good head and eyes, well pigmented, compact body, excellent bone, well handled and presented, went well.

2nd Davies’s Neradmik Over The Rainbow to Kyross, nearly 3 years, lovely head, eyes and expression, slightly shorter attention span, lovely coat and condition, strong body, moved well but tended to lean towards his handler. Sturdy body, very close decision between 1 and 2

3rd Baker’s Neradmik Boy Next Door. Litter brother to CC and BIS winner.

OD 3 – 0

1st CC & BIS Harris’s Ch Neradmik All About The Boy for Watchkees, JW, Sh CM. beautifully balanced, great silhouette, used his neck to impress, all quality head, bright, dark, intelligent eyes giving him such a charming expression. Lovely coat and condition, just the right amount of weight, a pleasure to watch him on the move where he really excelled, animated and focused showman.

2ns Miles & Dean’s Ch Neradmik Family Affair with Lekkerbek. Litter brother to winner, must have been an amazing litter and not to be outdone my 3rd in this class was out of the same dam, Ch Lady Godiva’s Guilty Pleasure with Neradmik. Typical head and expression, compact body, good bone, harsh jacket, another that moved and showed well.

3rd Andrews’ Ch Neradmik Daddy Dear with Maldine. 2 years old, masculine dog with lovely coat and dark eyes, plenty of body, sympathetically handled.

VD (Under 10 years) 5 – 0

1st BV Peck, Matthews & Ransley’s Ch Wund-ry Workin For A Livin at Szaryk (Imp USA) 7 ½ years, once he had relieved himself (almost flooded the ring, bless him! He was fine) Keen, intelligent expression, lively and switched on showman, well proportioned, good top-line, well coated. No sign of old age here.

2nd Atkinson’s Torrikees Who’s The Boss of Winklestar 9 years, excellent type, very pleasing head and expression, well coated and bodied, moved quite well.
