A brisk walk with my dogs, happy wagging tails. What was your main career before retirement? Cancer Research: lab work. What is something people might not know about you? What are the biggest issues you face as a multi-dog owner? And there is no point in having the work and worry of a litter without keeping one for yourself and so it goes on.

This does not detract from the unconditional love they shower on their hooman. In an increasingly anti-dog society, however, few understand the life enhancing benefits dogs can bring and many are intolerant of even the occasional bark, happy to phone the Council to complain in an anonymous capacity which causes a great deal of stress and anxiety to the dog owners who regard their pets as part of the family.

The law seems to be on the side of incomers, and I have heard of more than one kennel which had to close when houses were built in the vicinity. This is the biggest worry for most of us unless we live out in the country. Apart from a drain on my purse, I would not wish to live any other way.

What clubs have you been part of with regards to the dog industry? The Golden Retriever Club since I retired on health grounds in and was honoured with a Life Membership. The Dogs Trust. How did you get into showing and have you always been showing Golden Retrievers? My first dog was a present on my 9th birthday. Jockey bore more than a passing resemblance to a black spaniel, albeit with a long tail.

In those days it was unusual to see a spaniel with a long tail as most were docked. My aunt took one from the litter for herself: he was a parti-coloured terrier. Jockey lived a full and active life as a family dog and 'show jumper', taught by me as a pony mad teenager.

During this time, I long admired a friend's dog Sandy.

He was a golden retriever, the only one in our district as they were quite rare in the s, and eventually, after Jockey passed away at a grand old age, I set my sites on obtaining a Golden Retriever. Inmy dream was realised when I purchased Sherry from a breeder in Ayrshire. Sherry was a typical biddable Golden and I competed in Obedience at the local agricultural shows and she passed her Road Safety, a forerunner of the Good Citizens Scheme with flying colours. InI decided, with much trepidation, to have a litter from Sherry. All went well and from a litter of nine, I kept a pale bitch called Shona.

I was encouraged to show her by local enthusiasts who thought she had potential, and at our first show, Waverley Gundog Associationshe won a third and that was it- I was hooked. What are you biggest achievements in showing? What is it about golden retrievers you love so much? Goldens have beauty and brains. They live to please. Goldens retain the basic canine conformation so are free from many of the health problems which beset the more exaggerated genetically modified breeds.

NB I didn't say they are without health problems but responsible breeders do their best to screen for these, minimising the risk. Goldens make ideal family pets, as happy to accompany the munro bagger as to follow the pram to the school gates each day. They are people dogs, happy so long as they are with their hooman.

They have a wavy double coat which is easy to maintain with a brush. They love to swim which serves as a bath. However, they also love to wallow in the muddiest puddle they can find! But, do not be fooled, they are clever and will take advantage if allowed. Give them the respect they deserve, and you have a friend for life, unconditional love. Their versatility is endless- they can be trained for Obedience, Agility and Cani Cross. Goldens have soft loving natures which make them ideal as Thera pets, visiting hospitals and care homes where they brighten up the lives of residents.

As Gundogs, they have a keen nose and are trained as Medical Sniffer Dogs. Goldens are biddable and love to please and, as such, are widely used as Assistance Dogs: Hearing Dogs for the Deaf, Guide Dogs for the Blind and Canine Partners where they make life transforming partnerships for people with disabilities. There is a dog for everyone, except the couch potato, in one Golden package.

How many dogs do you have now? As well as my Golden girls I have a cocker spaniel called Rosie. I know you are an animal lover! What other animals do you have? I have 2 ancient Birman cats, Barbie and BT because she called a lot!

What would your advice be to someone who wants to get into showing? Attend a few local shows without your dog, to see if it is for you. Take your dog to a local Training Class where you will be given an honest opinion of its potential, and he will learn what is expected of him. Learn how to trim your dog or get someone to do it for you.

If the breeder of your dog would act as your mentor, this would be half the battle. Look, Listen and Learn. Do not be disappointed if, at first, you are unsuccessful, it is a learning curve.

And remember, you always take the best dog home. Is showing a competitive industry? Yes, I would say it is, much like every sport or hobby nowadays. Gone are the days when we went along with a brush and dog on lead to enjoy a day out with our friends. Presentation and Handling are of a high standard, many exhibitors highly skilled at grooming to present their exhibit to its best advantage.

The successful exhibitors work hard training their dogs and perfecting their handling skills, and, unlike in tennis where you can put your racket in the cupboard for a few days, it is a full time commitment keeping your dogs in peak condition. What would your advice be to someone who is looking to adopt a puppy from a breeder? Try and get along to a show to talk to breeders. The Breed Club show of your chosen breed is particularly valuable. Look for the type you particularly like and get your name on the breeder's waiting list. Do your research: learn what health issues are associated with the breed and what screening programs are available for the breed.

In the case of Golden Retrievers, prospective parents should be at least screened for hip. Ask to see the of these tests. The breeder will want to ask questions to make sure the puppy will fit into your lifestyle. Build a relationship with your breeder who should be willing to offer help and advice for the lifetime of your puppy. A good breeder will take their puppy back at whatever age, this should be written in your Contract of Sale, or will be happy to approve any suitable arrangement you yourself may have made.

Would your advice be to someone who is looking rescue a dog? It is very fashionable these days to adopt a dog from Eastern Europe. Please don't be tempted to go down this route: a few of the many charities which have sprung up are not all they appear to be, and most worryingly, vets are concerned with the diseases such as Leishmaniasis and heartworm, some of these dogs may be introducing into the UK, posing a threat to the native pet population. While I have every sympathy for these dogs, there are many dogs already in UK looking for their forever home.

For a specific breed, contact the relevant Breed Club as most have a Rescue scheme. What diet would you recommend for a dog competing in showing? Take advice from the breeder of your puppy who should issue you with a diet sheet to follow.

It is a mistake to change the puppy's diet too soon after you buy it. Nutrition is a vast subject: there are those who advocate raw feeding, but I have for many years fed a quality brand of extruded complete food. Would you encourage people to get into this industry? If you are prepared to get up at 3 am, drive hundreds of miles in your car, drink flasks of coffee, eat lo of rubbish, all for an opinion of your beloved and it is just one subjective opinionand if you get lucky, you will be handed a piece of coloured cardboard.

If this floats your boat, then this is the hobby for you. Did I say you have to have deep pockets? On the plus side, I have met many like-minded people, made a few good friends, and have many happy memories. Are you still involved in the showing industry? I still like to attend a few shows a year as a spectator but, as I no longer drive, I am dependent on others for a lift. This year, I was looking forward to showing a granddaughter of one of my girls, in partnership with my friend, but along came corona virus and all shows have been postponed or cancelled, quite rightly.

I do miss the camaraderie and buzz of competition and like to keep up to date withbut my health does not allow full participation. All Posts.
