OCTOBER 2023…..CELEBRATING 40 YEARS !!
It is hard to believe that it was 40 years ago that the club was first formed…….even harder for me who was there when many of us became founder members!

RE: SCENTWORK WITH HAMILTONS
We are so pleased with our boy, ‘D.J.’ (Flixtonia Captain Sunshine. )At just a year old he has passed his Scentwork UK Level 1 test! The first level on his Scentwork journey. DJ had to find and indicate the location of a clove-scented small piece of material. DJ freezes still, pointing with his nose where the scented material is. We had to find the locations of scent on a vehicle, boxes and bags, assorted articles and chairs and tables. (There were 8 chairs and two tables and DJ found the scent correctly on one of the chairs.)Such a super start DJ, who was a gentleman and enjoyed his day out. Massive thanks to Cath MANFIELD at DoggieDen, Wormelow, for getting us to this level & grateful thanks to Angela Leigh (Flixtonia) for breeding our wonderful boy!
BREED APPRECIATION DAY
The Hamiltonstovare Club Of Great Britain’s planned BAD day (Breed Appreciation Day) for last year had to be postponed due to the date ‘clashing’ with a Championship Show.
The committee is currently busy trying to re-arrange the day, with a possible venue situated somewhere in Lincolnshire.
The drawback we currently face is trying to re-arrange the two guest speakers who, last year had made plans to travel from Sweden to be with us, to come again.
As we are only a small club, it is essential that we receive sufficient numbers of those interested in progressing their knowledge of the breed standard, and knowledge of the breed in general, to make it feasibly to hold such an event.
Once we have a re-arranged date we will be contacting all those who registered an interest in attending.
