Ladies Kennel Association (LKA) is the last Champ show of the year for most dog exhibitors, a dress rehearsal for crufts for many and without a doubt your last chance to qualify for Crufts the following year. Held at the NEC in Birmingham it is large show and a fantastic way to end the year on.
This year our reaults from the show have been nothing short of brilliant.
- Newfords Innuendo (Jasper) on his debeut show took 2nd in MPD, 4th PD and 4th JD qualifying him for crufts 2012.
- Newfords One Vision (Buka) took 4th MPB and 4th PB.
- Newfords Fame Monster JW (Enzo) placed 4th YD.. one better than last year but what an amazing year this duo have had!
- Newfords Just Dance (Zara) 4th GB who is now taking a step back from showing to concentrate on her training to become a drug search dog. she will be shown sparingly though out 2012 but work comes before play!
- Newford Cranberry Fizz (Storm) 2nd in OD and on to the RCC! Storm started late to his show career but it seems this hasn't hindered him and to take the RCC behind the breed record holder was an honor.
I still consider myself incredibly new to the breed and showing so to have a small selection of dogs who are never out of the cards and taking top honors frequently is more than i could have ever hoped for at this point in time.

Due to popular demand I have added a "photography" page to the website. I have several loves in my life one of which is my dogs the other is my camera! I have a terrible memory so rely on pictures to keep it all going! I have a small gallery on Facebook, link on page, but a small example of pics on here too. If you are looking for photos to promote your dogs wins or a special keep sake drop me a line. >>>Photography<<<

Please see his page for his win pictures and updated stacks>>>Enzo<<<
Last but by no means least, Our ever consistent Storm (Newford Cranberry Fizz) Came out trumps at Midland Dobe taking an incredibly respectable 4th in his first Open Dog class, placing in between Champions! Not a bad start!! He shall continue to be campaigned in Open dog from now on.

14th October 2011
Back in september we attended NEDC Champ show way up north, although the show was fantastic there was an altertive reason fro attending! The Dobermann Breed Council had taken the fantastic initiative to offer Dobermann Cardiac TROPONIN I (cTnI) Testing Scheme, We took the long drive up tto take part in this and it was all very much worth it! We tested all of our dogs and every one of them came back within the normal ranges, What this means is that AT THE POINT IN TIME THE SAMPLE WAS TAKEN our dogs were clear from the early signs of DCM. The test is only a snap shot in time and any dog tested normal could go on to develop the condition at a later date but this is now a fantastic early detection tool.
9th October 2011
WHAT A WEEKEND!! Although I have personally been on a break from showing to sort out my house and focus on Rubys training for her BH exam Darren and Sam with Enzo have been out flying the Newford Flag in style!
Yesterday at South Wales Kennel Club Championship Show Enzo (Newfords Fame Monster) was entered in to Junior Dog and Graduate Dog and pulled a double whammy and was awarded 1st in both classes gaining him a further 6 points towards his Junior Warrent, Sunday they took a trip out to Maidstone to Beckingham and District Open Show where under breed specialist Jackie Ingram (Jojavik) Enzo entered in Junior and Post Graduate came out on on top not only winning both classes but then taking the Best in Breed award! We are so proud of what they have achieved so far! Thanks to the judges to have thought so highly of our boy!
2nd October 2011
We have a new member of the house for a bit, check out Max's page for more information
25th September 2011
I dont normally do the whole touting of other peoples wares but i'll make an exception for this wonderful website!
All the collars are hand made and having seen many of her collars i can personally vouch for the quality and attention to detail that goes in to each one, If my dogs wouldn't chew collars off each other to make the game of identifying "who dun it" after something of value has been destroyed i would have 20 of them, Each collar is totally customizable making it as bling or as subtle as you want without having to ever worrying about your collar/lead snapping or failing when you need it most.
Anyway... back to the results!
Bedford & District Open:
Storm - Newford Cranberry Fizz 2nd Open
Zara - Newfords Just Dance - 4th Junior
Kane - Champagne King - 3rd Veteran Dog, This amused me greatly as this is a 10 year old Dobermann who has never set foot in a show ring in his life! He has sired one litter and 2 of those puppies have been to Crufts and for what was a moment of insanity it was thought to be a good idea to take him to a show! He placed 3rd out of 3 however this qualified him for Crufts 2012 which as a pet dog he will be proudly attending! Without him I wouldnt have my Ruby who is most definitely my princess!
Enzo - Newfords Fame Monster 2nd Junior dog 2nd Graduate Dog, Never out of the cards this boy!
Zara - Newfords Just Dance 3rd Yearling Bitch
Merlin - Mckennah Alson At Newford - 4th Yearling Dog
This was slightly more of an epic trip than normal as not only did the normal show team come for the 7 hour ride up but all of our dogs joined us, in conjunction with The Dobermann Breed Council we took part in the Dobermann Cardiac TROPONIN I (cTnI) Testing Scheme. I will be adding a page in the next few days regarding health testing as it can be a total mine field so hopefully this will make more sense! However this test is the beginings of screening for early detection DCM in all of our dogs, like ALL tests for DCM at present the results of this test represent a snap shot of how they are at that exact moment in time, this by no means guarentees the dog will never be effected by the disease but by taking part in schemes like this early detection is more likely and we can breed more responsibly based on the results of these tests.
Newfords Fame Monster (Enzo) Has come back as "normal" which means at this point in time he shows no signs of heart damage or DCM.
We are awaiting the results of the rest of our herd and we will be publishing them regardless of the result.

Results from the weekend!
Saturday we went off to Richmond champ show joined by Zara Bracken Storm and Enzo. Enzo, consistent as ever placed 2nd in Junior dog while Bracken pulled out all the stops and managed a 1st in Post Graduate Bitch qualifying for crufts in style, Bracken has only been out twice this year, once at crufts and then at Bournemouth after taking time out for her maternal duties. What a way to come back!
Sunday we tottered off to The Dobermann Club Open show with Storm Bracken Zara and Buka. Storm won his class however it was a bit of a sure thing due to us being the only ones in the class! Bracken placed 2nd and zara 4th. The star of the day was Buka at the tender age of 4 months old participated in the Puppy walk class, Strutted her stuff and came back with a 1st place! What a star, lets hope its a sign of things to come. Her page has been updated with a more recent picture. Buka is in Co-Ownership with Myself and John and Caroline Goddard who also own Storm. >>Buka - Newfords One Vision<<

After what can only be described as a journey of epic disastrous proportions myself and Darren & Sam Brown made it up to Scotland for the weekend. Torrential rain and non stop accidents on the way up we finally got there at 1am! Quick turn around and back out a few hours later and off to The Scottish Kennel Club Champ show in Edinburgh. Zara (Newfords Just Dance) placed 2nd in her Yearling class, Merlin (Mckennah Alson at Newford) placed 4th in Yearling dog and our star Enzo (Newfords Fame Monster) placed 1st in Junior dog! We were informed afterwards by the judge that he was very seriously considered for the RCC in the end! Once the day was over we headed over to the beach for some down time! Pics of our adventures can be found >>>here<<< Darren nearly ended up face first in the waves more than once!
After a 2 hour drive across scotland over to Ayr we settled in our B&B with ALL the dogs! After a somewhat windy night off to the Scottish Dobermann Club Champ show. Zara once again placed 2nd in her yearling class, Merlin placed 3rd in his Yearling class and Enzo pulling a double placed 1st in Junior dog again! So proud of what Darren and Enzo have accomplished so far, proving with dedication a new handler can do just as well as the well known faces!

8 week stacks uploaded! >>>puppy stacks<<<
Finally recovered from what can only be described as a journey of epic proportions! Over the weekend Zara and Ruby traveled to Luxembourg for their international debut. The way dobes are shown on the continent is totally different allowing the dogs to show character vs being perfect still statues! Ruby grasped the concept rather easily and showed her socks off, she was graded VG in Open Black female, which stands for Very good. She was the 5th dog remaining in the class before final judging but sadly didnt make the final cut. Zara was in Junior Black Female class, she also received a VG grading. The company was great and it was definitely a weekend to remember. We shall be back over later in the year and early next year with more of our dogs.

We have been a little slow on the updates it seems!
Have had a very busy few weeks, quiet a few updates on the pictures too.
Our main update is our outing to Crufts!
This year Bracken and Storm attended, we once again had the fantastic company of John and Caroline Goddard (Storms owners) and Darren and Sam Brown (Enzos owners) Its a wonderful thing to have so much suport from such fantastic people!
Bracken was entered in to Post Gradauate Bitch, she has had only a handful of outings last year but enough to qualify her! Out of a very strong class of 8 Bracken Placed 4th. This is our first placing at Crufts and we are so pleased! Bracken only started showing as a 2 yr old so had alot of catching up to do! She was also entered in to the Good Citizen Scheme class which you have to have been awarded a bronze or higher in this scheme, Bracken placed 2nd in this class! So proud of my girl!! Considering she hadnt been shown for a good few months she was super!
Storm was entered in to Post Graduate Dog and although he showed his socks off and was a dream to handle sadly didnt place in a very strong class. He has already qualified for next year so onwards and upwards!
