Ms Alex Forth (Omegaville International Show Dogs)
I am delighted and honoured to have the membership vote to judge the forthcoming Club Open Show.
The Papillon breed to me is a mixture of the best of breed type beautiful to look at and watch as they power around the ring with ease and lightness, with an amazing head piece, a large heart in a small package and that wonderful pure silk coat.
Their amazing intelligence and willingness to please their owner is a joy to have on the end of the lead.
I have had the most amazing Papillons to show. I can never forget Ch Omegaville Make Me A Petitchien 14 CC's BISS, the wonderful Lucy and her brother Int Ch Omegaville Ima Petitchien. Ch Connection I Know Nothing, Noah who came to me in Spain from Vesa Toivanen as a raw youngster, and went on to win titles and Groups, and a few others that went on to their titles or CC winners.
I currently award CC's in Lhasa Apsos and Chinese Cresteds.
At Open show level I judge the toys and Toy Group, Utility Breeds etc.
This appointment to judge the breed that I love and hold dear to my heart and spending the day amongst breed fanciers and having the opportunity to access their dogs, is one I greatly look forward to.
I look forward to seeing you all on the day.

16. DOGS IN VEHICLES ON HOT DAYS
Your dog is vulnerable and at risk during hot weather and the Kennel Club offers the following guidance to help guide you through do’s and don’ts travelling to and whilst at KC licensed events.
· When travelling to a show please take a moment to consider whether the route to the show is on a busy holiday route, and leave earlier to avoid increased time in traffic jams.
· If your vehicle is not air-conditioned seriously consider whether travelling to the show is a good idea at all.
· The vehicle should be as fully ventilated as possible, and plenty of stops should be taken, with lots of water available to drink.
· Ensure your dog is not sitting in full sunlight. There should be plenty of free flowing air around the dog.
· When at the show, never leave you dog in the vehicle.
· Keep the dog in the shade – take your own shade for example a large umbrella and always have plenty of water available to drink so your dog stays well hydrated.
· Avoid your dog taking part in unnecessary exertion, or from standing in exposed sunlight for extended lengths of time.
Remember, if you feel hot your dog is very likely to feel much hotter and dehydrated, and this could lead to dire results. Please look after your dog’s welfare.
WARNING: If your dog is found to be at risk forcible entry to your vehicle may be necessary without liability for any damage caused.
17. Anyone whose dog is entered at a Kennel Club licensed event should take all reasonable steps to ensure the needs of their dog(s) are met, and should not put a dog’s health and welfare at risk by any action, default, omission or otherwise. Breach of Kennel Club Regulations in this respect may be referred to the Board for disciplinary action under the Kennel Club Rules and Regulations. The use of pinch collars, electronic shock collars, or prong collars, is not permitted at any show licensed by the Kennel Club. This shall apply at the venue or within the precincts of the show.

20. Best Veteran in Show – Best Veteran in Show is a veteran which has competed, and is unbeaten by any other veteran exhibited at the same show. A veteran is a dog of not less than seven years of age on the first day of the show. Where the Best in Show is a veteran, it may, at the discretion of the judge be awarded Best Veteran in Show respectively.
