Welcome to our Wonderful World

We are a small family kennel, whose love is Alaskan Malamutes. Our dogs are worked at rallies throughout England, where because we very rarely have snow and so cannot compete on sleds, we race on three wheeled rigs. We also compete at conformation shows both in the UK and in Europe, and have regularly competed at Crufts.

Birmingham National Dog Show

Birmingham National Dog Show

May saw us again off to show Sultan at Birmingham National Dog show under Mary Deats unfortunately we had to leave Hades at home as he had no coat at all! LOL

Sultan and Francine again didn’t disappoint and this time got an excellent?1st in the Minor Puppy Dog. Sultan beginning to understand what he is expected to do and moving a little more freely around the ring.


Meanwhile Sultan’s litter sister Pink owned and loved by Angelique and Johan achieved a remarkable result winning?best puppy bitch?and then just like her Father?Best Puppy in Show at the Dutch Specialty. Well done to them both and hopefully the start of things to come.

Bryony and Ghost meanwhile kept up their phenomenal results with the?Reserve Best Bitch?at the Alaskan Malamute Club of the UK Open Show bitches judged by Jo Sugden which again was a fantastic result and congratulations to them both.

The following weekend we all took to the vans and travelled up to Scotland to Edinburgh to compete and catch up with friends. Gavin and Raiden and Leia are all doing very well and although having no coat were very enthusiastic in greeting John and I.

Sultan managed a 3rd being handled by myself, (not with Francines panache but the job was done) Hades finished fifth in a very strong class and Ghost made the cut with Bryony.

Hades went to Belgium to compete at?Leige Golden dog show?where he was?Reserve Best Dog?winning the RCAC but took the CACIB which is another point towards his international title. He was beautifully handled by Senay so our thanks to her.

Meeko and Lucifer’s Brother Raiden (Marahootay Diamond Seeker) went to his second ever show “The National Working and Pastoral Breeds” held at Malvern under Judge Keith Givens

He was handled very professionally by Simon Molloy to achieve 1st in the Post Grad class out of a class of 10 and qualifiying for CRUFTS 2011

Well done to everyone, and looks like Claire will be buying a new suit to show both of her dogs at her first ever Crufts.

We have had a quiet month with Effie getting gradually fatter and enjoying the sun, the weekends being free have given us time to spend with the dogs in the garden playing.

Well we started May off with a bang, collecting our new American Champion Hades from Holland as Andrea Sautbine had very kindly flown him back for us.

Our first show of the month was the?Dutch Specialty. Andrea showed Hades for us and the winning team continued in style taking?Reserve best Dog?from a very strong field.

Andrea then continued in style showing Effie and taking 4th in the Open bitch class from 21 other bitches in her first show, we were absolutely thrilled with Effie’s first attempt at showing.

On the Sunday we were once again up early and travelled to Antwerp for a Belgium show. Hades managed to take the?Reserve Best Dog?ticket again and Effie surpassed our expectations taking the?Best Bitch Ticket?and a?Belgium CAC?and a?CACIB?to boot!! Way to go Effie.

The next show we attended was?The Birmingham National Dog Show. Hades was handled for the first time by Micheal Craig and finished a very good 4th judged by Sue Smith. Effie made the cut but was unplaced and Lucifer at his first big show handled by Francine finished 5th which given that he was more interested in playing with Francine, the boxers in the next ring and giving Sue a cuddle and a kiss was amazing.

For our last show of the month we travelled to?Edinburgh, which for us is an opportunity to catch up with friends Claire and Gavin and their dogs Raiden and Leia.

Unfortunately for us and Micheal who was handling Hades we didn’t make the cut in the open dog class.

However all was not in vain, the puppies did us proud.

Raiden finished a very good 5th in PGD at his first ever dog show handled by Bryony.

Bryony then took in Ghost into Junior bitch and I took in Leia, well you could have knocked me over with a feather when Leia finished second and Ghost took 3rd and both qualified for Crufts.

There were huge grins all round, and Daddy Gavin took lots of pictures just so none of us would forget the moment!
