Back up to Birmingham today for LKA! This was a show we had been looking forward to for 6 months as we had counted forward since the day our C litter was born! I recall saying to Bramble on the 11th June how if she didnt have them today i would go in and get them my self!! Puppies were fantastically well behaved!
Enzo (Newfords Fame monster) managed a impressive 5th in a very strong minor puppy dog class and a 4th in Puppy dog. This was his first time in the ring and his owner/handler's first time also. We couldnt be prouder of Darren and Sam for all the work they have put in to working with Enzo!
Zara (Newfords Just Dance) managed a 4th in her Puppy Bitch class, so pleased with her and seemed to really enjoy the day, biggest problem with her was she wouldnt stop wagging her tail!!
Storm had another good day taking another 3rd in his yearling class.
22nd November 2010
We attended South West Dobermann Club Champ show this weekend with really pleasing results, Storm placed 1st in his yearling class although he was the only one in it.. never mind eh! Ruby placed 5th in her Yearling class and won the Working class but again she was the only one in it.
Ruby however stunned me and behaved far better than i expected in her obedience classes. This was our first obedience class so had no idea what to expect other than disaster! Our heeling need alot more work but her stays were solid which was what WON us the class!! We entered the next class up and somehow managed to place 2nd out of 3! I am so proud of her and so thankful to the people who are teaching me how to train in obedience!! It makes the late cold nights at training worth it! :D
19th November 2010
Storms hip score came back today, a fabulous 2/3(5) same as his litter sisters. Thanks to his owners in humouring me when it comes to doing hip scores!! This puts our kennel average at "6" which is well below the KC average.
6th November 2010
Recieved Rubys Hip score today, elated at another low score for the Newford Kennel. 3/2(5) Well below average and lower than her mother! Ruby now has her complete health testing set about by the KC, however we are planning to do more to ensure she is a healthy example of the breed before we consider mating her in the future.
29th October 2010
Ruby, Storm and Bracken attended Midland counties show today, Storm placed 5th in his class, Ruby sadly didnt place however Bracken was shortlisted to the final 7 out of a class of 16! Didnt place but Bracken showed her self well and we are proud of her considering she didnt start showing till she was 2 years old!

Such a busy weekend!
Saturday foundus at Richmond Championship dog show with Ruby and Storm. A really good day out for us, we were also joined by a couple who have Enzo (Newfords Fame Monster)to get a feel for the show world.. hopefully havent scared them off! Storm placded 3/6 in his Jr dog class and Ruby managed a 5/10 in her Jr bitch class.
Sunday found us at our schutzhund training with Ruby and Zara. Every time we go Ruby finds new ways to impress me with her natural abilty to do this. Only after 4 sessions she is confidently on the sleeve now in her protection stage, she is tracking well and we have our homework for her obedience! This is a whole different experience to anything we have done before and it is something i hope we continue for some time as its the most rewarding thing i have done with my dogs so far.
Page added for >>Enzo. (Newfords Fame Monster)<<
10th September 2010
Its been a while since an update but we have been very busy! All the puppies have gone to their new homes and we are getting lovely stories of what keen landscape designers they all are!
We have retained a puppy from this litter, Zara (Newfords Just Dance) Click her name to see her page, it is under construction at the moment so things will be added as we go along.
We will also be making pages for Enzo (Newfords Fame Monster), Ziva (Newfords Bad Romance) and Brookie (Newfords Poker Face) all who are planning on gracing us with their presence in the show ring.
Zara along with Ruby will continue with their Schutzhund training, Ruby it seems is a natural at it and thoroughly enjoys her training. I am really impressed with her so far and we have high hopes for her, Its going to be more of a challenge training me than the dog!
As a fantastic start with Zara she attended our local ring craft's match night on wednesday and won her "puppy walk" class! Lets hope this is a sign of whats to come! She was a fabulous sport and seemed to enjoy playing tug with her rossette more than the being judged bit! We are looking forward to hershow debut at LKA in December.

Back out this weekend and hope to have similar results. It has been noticied that the number of entries are declining to open shows.. and even to some extent Champ shows.

Today was a day of utter carnage and fun! We invited our first litter back for their birthday party! 6/10 of the pups were able to make it! It was fantastic to catch up with the pups and see how they have grown up and to once again chatter for hours with their owners! The weather sort of held for us, no torrential rain but was a little chilly and next to the BBQ seemed to be the place to huddle after a while! All the dogs ran free together and seemed to have a fantastic day. I know my 3 were out sparco by the time everyone went home! Thankyou so much to Cormac, Storm, Bella, Bella and Ebony for making your owners to bring you back for a day!
I think this is something we would love to do again in the future for other litters! Also a MASSIVE thankyou to John and Caroline Goddard for the simplly AMAZING birthday cake you brought. (Bracken really enjoyed it!) Some pictures can be found here, not as many as i would normally take but trying to find 10 minutes and not get tripped up by some form of dog was a challenge!!

wow! What a weekend! Saturday was spent at the Working and Pastoral champ show in Wales after a some what lengthly drive due to me accidently programming the sat nav for shortest route.... vs quickest! This was Storms champ show debut and in a fantastically strong class of 7 storm placed 5th (VHC) which we were incredibly pleased about. Sadly Ruby didnt place in her class. Another hour drive back south to a B&B for the night with great company and fantastic hospitality. Sunday found us at The Welsh Dobermann Champ show. Annoyingly I made a mistake with Rubys class listing and she ended up in "novice" vs "puppy" She didnt place in this class. Storm however in a class of 5 and placed 3rd qualifiying him for Crufts 2011. He has only had 4 outings so far and gets better every time!
12th April 2010

Ruby once again won her Junior class though default.. but missed out on the BPIB award. After the official judging was over we entered a companion show which was on the same day/location. Ruby placed 2nd out of 27 other puppies in her puppy class also taking 3rd in Prettiest bitch!! Storm got a 2nd in Hunkiest dog and Bracken also got a 2nd in her class! It was a really beautiful day and only made better by spending it with such wonderfull company!

14th March 2010
Another Doberdate! Today Ruby and Bramble headed down south to Bournemouth to meet up with a new friend Kaiser! We took a trip down to the beach and it took a while for the girls to follow Kaiser in to the water but they got the hang of it eventually.
Annoyingly the feel for the day was ruined by the publics perception of the Dobermann, we recieved verbal abuse for being on a public beach with "dangerous uncontrolled dogs" after one of the girls accidently scratched a runner. The media is creating problems and attitudes towards these dogs which will only make the problem worse. I invite anyone to my house to meet my "dangerous" dogs and make a decision for your self. I however advise bringing wet wipes though as the kisses get a little much after a while.
11th March 2010
A rather exciting and incredibly tiring day! Our first year attening crufts, to then be competing there was an incredibly exciting experience. Ruby was in a very strong class of 14 in Special Puppy, Sadly she didnt place but seemed to be throughly enjoy the day and attention.
