Dane of the Year 2019

From the Dane of the Year Committee

Date of Show: Sunday 20th October 2019
Sponsoring Club: Great Dane Club of Wales

Dane of the Year is a significant show in the Great Dane Show calendar and in order to maintain the viability of the show and keep entry fees at their present level, it has been decided by the DOTY Committee that this year’s show would be run using only one ring. This has enabled us to reduce the venue cost by only utilizing half of The Arena (formerly Cricket Hall). We thank the Management at the Connexion for agreeing to this arrangement.

This will be trialled this year by the sponsoring club, the Great Dane Club of Wales, who, as most will know use one ring at their Championship Show.

Schedules should be available by the beginning of August, where details of the new awards on offer for the first time may be seen.

We all look forward to your continued support of the Dane of the Year.

Great Dane Breed Council Meeting – Monday 26th September 2016

The Great Dane Breed Council held its autumn meeting on Monday 26th September 2016 at the Holiday Inn Stafford and was attended by delegates from seven of the eight participating clubs. The meeting was chaired by Tony Pearce.

Breed Health Co-ordinator Maria McGuinness gave an update on the DCM Research Project and shared the excellent news that the re-application to the KC Charitable Trust for funding which had been made by Liverpool University in conjunction with the Breed Council, has been successful and the sum of £42,000 has been granted.

As already agreed another Breed Council Health Day will be held in the autumn 2017. Clubs and their members are asked that any subjects considered suitable for discussion should be brought to the attention of Maria McGuinness. Further details will be available in due course.

The BC Health Sub-Committee also gave details of the launch by the Kennel Club Genetics Centre at the Animal Health Trust of the “Give a Dog a Genome” project.

Great Danes are included in the initial 50 breeds that signed up to the Give a Dog a Genome project.

Tony Schaanning-Ling gave the KCLC report of the last meeting held in May. He advised that he was to continue as Chairman of the KCLC for a further three years.

Other subjects covered were a proposed inclusion in Club Show Schedules and Catalogues of the KC Code of Conduct in relation to Social Media; Judging lists and Criteria and the feasibility of producing a video/film on our breed standard for the KC Academy as part of the education of up and coming judges.
