NORWEGIAN BUHUNDS Most of you will know that the KC staff are working from home and have been since just before we went into lockdown, which of course was just after Crufts.

NORWEGIAN BUHUNDS I am sure all of you know by now that LKA has been cancelled. The CEO of the NEC recently announced that no events would held there until 2021, as he did not feel any event would be financially viable with many people still feeling happy to go out and restrictions on numbers […]

NORWEGIAN BUHUNDS The continuing easing of lockdown saw another socially distanced Buhund Bumble take place in the fields at Alwalton, Peterborough on Sunday 19th September.

NORWEGIAN BUHUNDS Still no prospect of having any face to face dog shows safely any time soon, certainly not in the Uk. Depending on how the panademic goes I suppose there might be some smaller shows towards the end of the year, but with the Ch shows they have such a big capital outlay before […]
