FLCGB 6th Open Show

I would like to thank the committee for the invitation, and the gift.

We seem to have 2 variations of ‘type’ in our breed, and I judged accordingly.

Not a good time of the year for coats, majority of exhibits were out of coat or just coming back into coat.  I found 1 level bite, 1 overshot bite, and one bite with misaligned incisors.

I did split hairs in some classes, particularly in limit bitch.  The first 3 bitches in this class were all excellent, and could changes places on another day.

Kennel Club Allocates Championship Status 2011/2012 to Finnish Lapphunds

We are delighted with the news that the Finnish Lapphund has been awarded Championship Status by the Kennel Club, with effect from 2011. Six full sets of Championship Certificates and two singles will be on offer at the following shows:

Full set of Challenge Certificates:

  • Crufts (March)

  • Finnish Lapphund Club of Great Britain (April)

  • Birmingham National (May)

  • Scottish Kennel Club (May),

  • National Working & Pastoral Breeds Dog Society (July)

  • Welsh Kennel Club (August)

Single Challenge Certificates:

  • Southern Counties CA (June)

  • Richmond DSS (September)

This is yet another important milestone in the breed and club’s history in the UK, the culmination of focused involvement by a relatively small group of dedicated enthusiasts:

  • The First Finnish Lapphund was imported into the UK in 1989 in whelp – SF MVA Lecibsin Hissukka.

  • Import Register Status was initially granted by the KC – restricting the breed to showing in Matches, Exemption Shows and Import Register Classes only.

  • The Finnish Lapphund Club of Great Britain was founded in May 1994, with the purpose of protecting and furthering the interest of the breed in the UK.

  • November 1995, saw the Club provisionally recognised by the UK Kennel Club.

  • Rare Breed Status was granted in April 2002, seeing Finnish Lapphund classes scheduled at all levels of breed shows.

Along the way, there have been many people involved in the introduction and progression of the breed’s development in the UK. Our thanks go to all those who have helped us achieve our current status for their support and guidance. Particular mention must go to Sue and Roger Dunger of the Sulyka Kennels UK, who were responsible for the first stock being imported into the UK from the Lecibsin Kennels in Finland. Also to the many Kennels in Finland who have kindly allowed their stock to leave its native country to increase and enhance our gene pool – without them the Finnish Lapphund would not be where it is today in the UK.

Thanks to everyone for helping us to achieve this momentous milestone.
