Hi All,

While I'm usually based in the United States, I am currently part-time in the UK for a work project spread over the next year. I'd love to attend some key Mastiff competitions while here in the UK and get to know the local Mastiff community. Any recommendations for Mastiff-oriented shows/events I should add to my calendar along with Crufts?  Thank you![smile]

Sorry I didn't reply earlier. I don't have the dates at the moment, but I would strongly advise trying to make one of the shows hosted by the two clubs, The Old English Mastiff Club and the Mastiff Association. Each puts on an Open Show (mostly for young dogs) and a Championship Show, where the UK equivalent of points, Challenge Certificates (aka CCs aka tickets), are awarded. The atmosphere is more relaxed at these shows, so they are better for meeting people. I particularly recommend the OEMC Open Show in April, daffodil time, when they are usually a few pups knocking about. When I get the dates I will put them on this thread, or contact me directly at collie_uk_uk@yahoo.co.uk.
