Best in Show for Crufts 2014 was awarded to Afterglow Maverick Sabre, better known as “Ricky”, a handsome Standard Poodle owned by his handler Jason Lynn together with John and Sandra Stone. This popular breed is instantly recognisable, with their elegant gait, proud, balanced physique, and often remarkable clips. Here is our introduction to this beautiful and intelligent breed.
When it comes to dog grooming, Poodles stand apart from all other breeds. To groom a Poodle is a challenge, but this breed also offers professional groomers with the opportunity to really test their creative and technical skills.
Dogs have been at our side throughout history, and over time have been given more and more roles in our society. Our pet dogs provide us with companionship and love on a daily basis, but there are also innumerate dogs around the world who work with us on a daily basis. Last week we looked at rescue, assistance and sniffer dogs - today we will look at what other areas working dogs play in our lives past and present.
Many dog owners, especially new dog owners, feel slightly lost in the world of grooming. With so many coat types and breeds, along with the huge number of grooming tools available, it can be difficult to know which tools and techniques are suitable for your dog.
