7th November 2013
This time of year is always a little more quiet as the show season is beginning to wind down and the weather keeps most people at bay!
Results from shows recently:
Newfords Hellraiser has made his debut, his first show Wellington & District Open show he placed 2nd in Junior and Best puppy in breed, Nothing further in the BPIS line up (no group system) then went on to win the AV Puppy stakes! Way to go Mr Cash!
Cash qualified for CRUFTS at Working & Pastoral Breeds of Scotland with a 3rd place in Minor Puppy! The Newford bundle at Crufts is ever increasing!
Newfords Imagine The Chaos has also Qualified for Crufts at Working and Pastoral Breeds of Wales CH show with a 3rd in Puppy Dog. Really proud of them as this is his owners (Sians) first show dog and she is putting so much time and effort in to it.. especially when Kazo is rather like his mother and keeping 4 feet on the ground is always a challenge!
I am in the process of re-doing the ENTIRE website which is being build side by side with this one and when its completed i'll swap over however until then the news and updates on here are going to be a little less as well.. its just more to copy over!
Super news for our J litter.
All have now found their new homes and we have a few more to come out and play in the show ring! Breeding for both body and mind we also have some really keen agility stars in the making so really look forward to watching them progress.
Showing we have Newfords Jabbawocky, Newfords Just William, Newfords Just In Time and last and by no means least Newfords Jezzabelle Gem! Some of these puppies are with new handlers others with experienced ones, this has to have been my toughest litter ever when picking them apart and deciding who went where but over al thrilled with the litter! I can't thank Kit (Ranis owner) enough for the hard work and dedication he put in to this litter, it really shows. You are a star!

Sofie ( sofia Del Nasi) and Storm (Newford Cranberry Fizz) took the road trip to IDC in Romania this year. Sofia in a massive class of 14 made it to the 5th only just missing out on the final.

30th July 2013
If anyone has a magical device which allows more hours in the day i would happily borrow it off them for a while.
We have had what can only be described as a whirlwind few weeks and the update is going so please make your self comfortable, fetch a glass of wine and a few crackers.
On June 18th I left home with Storm (N. Cranberry Fizz) Zara (N. Just Dance) and Sofie (Sofia Del Nasi) and headed back over to France for what can only be considered a Journey of epic proportions! We were heading to the Black Sea Winners show in Bulgaria via Montenegro! Black Sea Winners show is an amazing show, 10 countries are invited to hold shows at this event giving you the possibility of making your dog to a champion in these countries. You have 2-3 shows held a day starting at 6pm due to the immense heat. After our first 2 days driving, having been though France, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia and Bosnia Herzegovina, we found our self in Montenegro at their 2 CACIB international shows, Highlights from this show is Zara becoming a Champion of Montenegro and Sofie Winning 3rd best baby in show! Girl power! Setting off once finishing up on the Sunday we set off for a 18 hour solid drive through Kosovo, Serbia, Macedonia aiming to end up in Bulgaria. Once we had settled in our villa and dogs had all been for a swim we ventured down to the show ground and signed in. If anyone ever complains about the price of showing in England again i will be forced to insert my receipt for my show fees in them in a place of their choice! Several thousand Euros later all entered and ready for our first batch of shows. The next 12 days were very much a blur but the net results were Zara becoming a Multi Champion in 7 different countries, Storm gaining his last CACIB for his International Champion title and picking up 9 country titles. Sofie who is too young to gain any titles picked up 1 best baby in show and several group placings 2'nd and 3rd baby in show.
Storm is now Multi/Int Ch Newford Cranberry Fizz, to say i am elated doesnt even come close, he is the first UK bred Dobermann to ahieve these titles. Others have obtained Int and others Multi but not the 2 together, with all his titles together he has become the most titles UK bred Dobermann! There are other people in the UK who claim their dogs have these titles but they are sadly lying and its just said by them to make people think their dog is better than it is but still dont have the certificates to back up their claims. To be able to call your dog a Multi Ch it must have 3 or more country titles and International Championship of Beauty is gained by winning 5 CACIBs in 3 different countries, this is no mean feat and the time and costs involved with doing this isnt something i wish to tot up for fear of being committed!!!
Zara returned home Multi Ch Newfords Just Dance BH.. also becomes the first Uk Bred female to obtain this (or at least when i have asked about no one seems to know of another!) and sofie... well shes still my brown bastard love child!!
An Adventure doesnt even come close to what this was, very memorable and now seems a blur but at the time was exhausting.. would i do it again? Damn right i would!!

The even has a mind blowing level of support with over 150 dobermanns entered! Newford Dobies were there en masse and placed very well!
Sol - Newfords Fait Acompli was shown for the very first time and placed 2nd in Puppy bitch, this was fantastic and has given her human parents a taste for showing and will be giving it a go in the near future!

9th April 2013
We are currently enjoying the calm before the babies arrive and I am finally catching up on some much needed maintenance on the website!
Now seems like a good time to announce our latest addition to the Newford Clan! Introducing Sofia Del Nasi (To Newford) She has come all the way from Slovenia... Via San Marino (where I collected her at 8 weeks!) and finally stuck in France where she is sitting out waiting for her Passport to be completed and enable her to enter the UK. She has a truly superb pedigree full of legends of the Dobermann breed and I only hope I can do her justice. I feel honored by Simon for letting me have one of Eureka's special puppies. Although she as come from a country where cropping and docking is the norm she has arrived with all appendages attached so we are able to show her freely in the UK and Europe. She is our very first brown and from what i have been told once you have a brown.. well.. nothing is ever the same again! >>> Sofia<<<
MASSIVE congratulations to Monarkle Ramzo Bamzo (Duke) by Newfords Fame Monster JW and out of Monarkle Rock Chickster, Wins RBPIS at NEDC open show .. Well done owner and handler Richard. Proud that you are doing so well with your Enzo baby!

11th March 2013
I have sat here for about 20 minutes trying to think what to put which would truly express what has happened this weekend!!!
Crufts last year was amazing, we took 6 dogs and 5 came back with places including a class win.. I honestly didnt think it would be possible to top it. Turns out I was wrong and I have never been happier to be wrong!
Run down of results in order of appearance!
Cruz - Newords Eleventh Hour placed 4th in Yearling Dog at his first Crufts, I am eternally grateful to his owners Danii and Scott for keeping him in such fantastic condition!
Merlin - Mckennah Alson At Newford sadly didnt place in his class however having had 6 months out of the ring he showed beautifully.
Enzo - Newfords Fame Monster JW - Enzo has been knocking around the top of Limit classes for a while, at crufts last year he won his Junior class and this year he had to one up this by taking 2nd in Limit and then on the Dog Reserve CC. Proud doesnt even cover it, Darren and Enzo are a wonderful team to watch and their bond shows when they are in the ring together.
Storm - Newford Cranberry Fizz - Last year we placed 5th in a very stong Open Dog class, this year there were 17 dogs entered, many champions and several from over seas. This year Storm performed beautifully and placed 4th Open dog and was the highest placing non champion! Over the moon, was a fantastic feeling to once again be pulled for the final 5!
Buka - Newfords One Vision - the delightful Buka once again strutted her stuff, her first crufts and placed a very respectable 5th in a tough Yearling bitch class.
Zara - Newfords Just Dance - The ever bouncy Bum dog! zara moved up in to the big girl class this year and sadly was unplaced however entered in toGood Citizens Scheme and placed 4th! Clever bum!
The weekend wasnt over with that, the day before myself, Zara and Storm took a small road trip to South Valley Sport dog Club and attempted our BH exams.
Storm was a little bit of a fun entry, we had 3 weeks to try to get him ready. He performed his 5 minute down stay under distraction very well but when it came to the off lead heel he decided i was no longer interesting and we ended the test there! We will continue to work with him and his owner to have them ready with alot more training so we can pass it with flying colours next time!
Zara (aka Bum) is now known as Bum BH! Somehow the nutter passed which is wonderful! All round dog, BH and a place at crufts all in the same weekend!
A Massive thankyou to all my owners for all their hard work, its appreciated!
Excuse me now while I catch up on sleep!
7th March 2013
Feet finally on british soil again! Last weekend Storm (N. Cranberry Fizz) and I were on another Road trip, this time to The Martini Internaional Dog show in Groningen Netherlands. Once again Storm obtained Ex1 Open Male, and CAC/CACIB under the very well known & respected Dobermann Specialist - Ilona Onstenk-Schenk. 2 down, 2 to go for his Dutch Championship title! Roll on our next adventure!
I am really late doing this one but Ruby (Newford Valencia BH) has become a bit of a diva recently, she starred in the ITV TV series "Great Night Out" playing the role of Napoloen! I am in the process of sorting out a compilation of her scenes and once done will have them up on the site for everyone to see!
OMG HOW have I missed this!!!
On 24th Febuary we took a fun treck up to Alferton to attend Midland Dobermann Club Open show.
Storm placed a very respectable 3rd in Open dog which was one of the biggest classes of the day! Buka 4th in Graduate bitch, Zara 5th in Open bitch while the total star of the day was Loki (Newfords Fahrenheit) who won MPD, Best Puppy Dog and then RESERVE BEST PUPPY IN SHOW! What a star as it was only his 2nd ever show!
New photos for Loki and Storm.
