Yesterday at the National Working & Pastoral Breeds Society Championship Show, Sturtmoor had a fabulous day!
Foxy - Bernegarden's Reve Enka Av Sturtmoor (Imp Nor) won her FIRST CC!!
Lotto - Sturtmoor Destiny's Day won another puppy class and also was awarded Best Puppy in Breed!
It has been a long road with Foxy to get her to this achievement, between trips to back and forth to Norway, puppies, lack of coat and seasons, she has been shown very little, but has held her own. Yesterday was the best day yet!
To date, Foxy has won 1 CC, 1 RCC. And at shows without CC's she has 3 Best of Sex's (2 with Best of Breed) and 10 Reserve Best of Sex awards! Not too shabby for a little girl who hasn't been in the ring that much!
Lotto's win takes him to the current equal Top Puppy position along with his sister Louisa (Sturtmoor's Dream Maker at Gazenorth who is owned by Paul Glaholm).
The year so far has been a good one! The babies are enjoying themselves in the ring with Lotto winning Best Puppy in Breed at two Championship Shows (out of 2) and also being short-listed in the Puppy Group at Bath Championship Show.
His sister, Louisa (owned by Paul Glaholm) won Best Puppy in Breed under Norwegian Judge Espen Engh while her dad (King) won the Reserve Dog CC under this renowned Norwegian judge who knows our breed extremely well.
The Bu club show saw a fantastic day for Sturtmoor with us winning Best Puppy Dog (with Leo), Reserve Best Bitch (with Foxy) and Best Dog and Reserve Best in Show with King. We also won the Breeders class (a first time event for the Sturtmoor Buhunds!).
With lots of shows still to attend, let's hope for a great year!
Foxy and Kings puppies arrived on 17th September 2013. We had 6 puppies, 3 dogs and 3 bitches. All are doing very well.

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.
Please visit HERE for more information!
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...........
6:3 = 9
This means that the planned litter with Foxy will hopefully go ahead (pending eye test results).
SVARTKONGE AV STURTMOOR (IMP NOR)
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.
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.
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 pleased to announce that Foxy (Bernegarden's Reve Enka) arrived safely in the UK in February 2011. She has settled in very quickly and is adored by all. She has attended a handful of small shows where she has gained two Best Puppy in Breed's and two Reserve Best of Breed's. Also, at a Limited Show in March, she was shortlisted in Best in Show and then won Reserve Best Puppy in Show!!
Foxy makes her Championship show debut on April 16th at Working & Pastoral Breeds Association of Wales, and although there are no CC's on offer at that show, we are really looking forward to getting her to a big show at last!!
We would like to announce that BERNEGARDEN'S REVE ENKA, a Norwegian Buhund called Foxy, will be arriving from Norway in February 2011 (all being well!).
Foxy is owned and bred by Britt Marit Halvorsen of the world famous Berngarden Saint Bernards, and will come to live with Camille (on breeding terms) for the foreseeable future.
We are very excited to have Foxy as part of the Sturtmoor kennels, and Camille is particularly looking forward to getting back to the Buhund ring on a more permanent basis. We wish all the best to Foxy's siblings, wherever in the world they may be!
This is Foxy aged approx 7 months.
