Luccombe Dalmatians ~ Show News

The Luccombe Kennel was first started in 1971 by my Mum Irene Haywood and after a few years her passion for all things "Dalmatian" had rubbed off on me and I was given a joint interest in the kennels. I first started judging the breed in the early 1980s, officiating a small "Open" shows etc. I progressed up the judging ladder and was awarded "A1" list Championship show judge status by the Kennel Club in around 1990. I first awarded Challenge Certificates (the highest award at a Championship show) in 1991 and have since awarded them seven times at various Canine Society shows. I was selected to be one of the three judges at the North of England Dalmatian Club's prestigious "Dalmatian of the Year" event for 2007 which is held in January 2008 an appointment which I thoroughly enjoyed.
