SALUKI BREED NOTES WEEKENDING 21ST AUGUST 2020
The Kennel Club have posted their rules and regulations for running a dog show at this very different and strange time. I have decided not to post them here as they are readily available on the Kennel Club web site. It is entitled: ‘Operational plan for the resumption of Licensed Events’. They are also obtainable from one of the Kennel Club publications. What I will include are judges for 2021 with hope that we will see some normalcy. For those of you that like stats, 41% of the Championship judges are Breed Specialists.

Congratulations to Clair Chryssolor on her new, homebred USA Champion. She is Anasazi Esprit De Coeur. Clair says the 1600 mile trip was worth it.
Good news if you are planning on travelling abroad to one of the previously accepted countries now the UK had exited from the EU. Checking with the Defra Web Site, there seem to be no changes there. If you are planning a trip do check and double check as any error could cause you and your Saluki considerable problems. Or as they say take nothing for granted.
UK Sighthound Sport are tentatively planning on holding an Open* Meeting on the 4th October in Gloucestershire. This is the day after Hounds at Bournemouth Championship Show. *Open meeting means that the club can have dogs running from 12 months, can have special classes i.e. veteran and the courses can be shorter. Anyone that has not previously attended will need to have their dog ‘cleared’ which means it can run safely in a muzzle with another dog. For further information on the please contact Tracy Ferty Chamberlain at firstname.lastname@example.org with Name and DOB to register interest for a clearing trial.
