This was the final title that King could win in the UK!
We are very pleased that all our babies have found forever homes already.
We have some fabulous owners, and are looking forward to the day they can take their new bundles of fun home to their new lives.
We wish them all a long and happy life together. :)

Today at Bath Championships show, King finally got his final point which gives him his Junior Warrant title! Having shown Rare Breeds for many years, it is the first time we have gained a 'JW' on any of our dogs, despite several near misses!!
To top the day off - King then went on to win a Group 4 placement, such a huge achievement for a 17 month old Black Buhund! WAY TO GO KING!!
Camille is planning her first Buhund litter since 1986!!
Following successful health testing, we can now officially announce our upcoming plans.

At Birmingham National Championship Show on May 11th 2013, King became Sturtmoor's first UK Champion! After many European Champs and some American Champs, at last we now have one in the UK! :)
Thanks to judge Marion Sargent for thinking so highly of our Black Buhund boy, at just 17 months old we are so proud of all his achievements.
We are very pleased to announce that the results of King's hip xray's have been received. We are proud to say that his score is...........

What a fantastic year for our new boy King! He hit the show ring in June 2012 when he was 6 months old and didn't look back!
In only 10 shows with Champion Certificates (CC's) on offer (including Crufts 2013), King won 3 CC's with Best of Breed and 4 Reserve CC's (his last at Crufts 2013) as well as 6 Best Puppy in Breed's.
King finished the year as:
Top Buhund Male (Norwegian Buhund Club)
Top Buhund Puppy (Norwegian Buhund Club)
Top Black (Norwegian Buhund Club)
Top Puppy in Group (Our Dogs/Dorwest Herbs)
Runner-up Top Dog (Dog World)
We are so proud of our baby boy and all his achievements, we can only hope that he will gain is 4th CC to make him up to a Champion (as the previous 3 have all been won as a puppy,he is not yet a champion!).
Thank you to all those that have supported us throughout the year, and good luck to everyone for the coming show season which is due to start very soon!
Pending heath test results, we are planning a litter from King and Foxy (Bernegarden's Reve Enka Imp NOR) in the summer of this year.

BEST PUPPY IN SHOW
This was King's 3rd CC from the Puppy Classes, we think he is the only Buhund in the UK's history to have achieved this! However, he still needs one more CC, taken after he is one year old to make him a UK Champion!
We are so proud of our young black boy - such a dream to own, in EVERY way!!
Well... what can I say! Our King (Svartkonge Av Sturtmoor (Imp NOR)), has had one hell of a start to his show career!!! The latest results.....
Richmond (8 September) - CC, Best of Breed & Best Puppy in Breed
Darlington (15 September) - Best Dog, Best Puppy in Breed and shortlisted in Puppy Group
Driffield (20 September) - RCC, Best Puppy in Breed
This last Best Puppy win has made him certain for Top Puppy in Breed as with only two shows left with CC's for the breed, he now cannot be beaten!
We really did not expect him to acheive so much in such a short time. Our heartfelt thanks go to May Birkeland for allowing King to come to us in Wales, and to all the judges who have thought so
At the WKC Championship Show on Saturday 18th August 2012, King (Svartkonge av Sturtmoor) excelled himself! Thanks to Judge Mr Mike Vines for awarding King the Dog CC and Best of Breed as well as Best Puppy in Breed. What a little star our King is!! :0)
For the second time in 7 days, King did us proud!!
At the National Working & Pastoral Breeds Championship Show, on 14 July 2012, under Judge Kerry Frost (Frostisen), king yet again won his class, Best Puppy in Breed and the Reserve Champion Certificate (RCC).
My good friend Laura Wilcox was kind enough to take this photograph of him at the show.

King is now qualified for Crufts for life, as this award (once confirmed by the KC) gives him his Stud Book number!!. We are so proud of our little man, and hope he has a bright future!!
His other notable win was Reserve Best Puppy In Show at the Chepstow Limited Show on 17th June!! We all adore King, and thank May Birkeland for letting him come to live with us here in the UK. He truly is a
We had a fantastic day at CRUFTS yesterday with our Menna. She not only won her class, but also took Best Bitch and BEST OF BREED!! This was a very unexpected result, but a thrilling one!

It was wonderful to see her on the television, I hope she did the breed proud!
We are very proud to announce that King (Svarte Konge av Sturtmoor) will be due to arrive from Norway at the end of March 2012! King is a black Norwegian Buhund (male) and has come to us via May Birkeland in Norway.
Thanks to Britt Marit Halvorsen for looking after King in the interim, and arranging for him to travel to the UK. What would we do without you Britt!
We are looking forward to meeting this young man and hope he can bring some new blood and black lines to the Buhund gene pool in the UK.
We are very proud to annouce that Menna (Int/Bel/DK Ch. Karabas Likande Lamenna Letta at Sturtmoor (IMP NL) Sh.C.M. WW'10 W'08, W'09) is the leader in the UK's Top Dog competition!
The winners of Best of Breed and Best Opposite Sex are awarded points at all Championship shows in the UK that have breed classes. Top Dog is a very coveted award that most breeders will strive to achieve, but few will actually gain.
Menna has had a phenomenal career so far, winning some Top Awards previoiusly never won by an Estrela outside of Portugal!! In this particular competition, Menna was Top Dog in 2007 and 2008 but was them absent from the show ring for the majority of 2009 and 2010 due to maternal duties. Now - back in the ring after her two year absence, she came back with style!!
We are so proud of our baby, and cannot thank Sietske Christan-Luchsinger enough for allowing her to join us!!
