The Eastern Counties Dachshund Association will be holding a Breed Seminar on Sunday 17th April 2016.
The Seminar aims to provide an opportunity to learn about Dachshunds, whatever your current knowledge and experience. The speaker will be Mrs Mandy Dance who will talk about the Breed Standard.
For those who wish to take a written exam and informal Hands on Assessment there will be an opportunity to do so. The assessments will take place in the afternoon and those people attending just the seminar may stay to watch, if they wish.

The venue is Moggerhanger Village Hall, Blunham Road, Moggerhanger, Bedford MK44 3RB. This is easy to find, just off the A1 and is a venue already used for dog club events.

The Seminar starts at 10:00, with coffee being served from 09:30.

PD 1, Mrs M K Cassidy, Rosenez Little Rambler.  A 6 month baby but showing promise.  Good head in the making and a well held neck.  Still a little soft in the topline, but should   strengthen with age.  Rear angulation correct and moved well when settled. BPD

JD 1, Mrs S J Jones, Bimini Starstruck.  Strong boy with a good expression, dark eye and well shaped head.  Correct shoulders, long ribbing and  well angulated rear end.  Excellent coat. RBD

2, Mrs S A Smith, Bingobongo Gregory.  Different type to 1 and a little unsettled.  Dark eye, nicely rounded ribs, a little long in the loin.  A little attention to his coat would be of benefit.
