Dressed to Impress


Although we much prefer to be out in the open air, either sniffing around in the forest or enjoying the countryside, we have been known from time to time to get spruced up and have been seen at some of the top dog shows.

Pride of place has to go to PAMATKA - or, more formally, Int/Bel/Cz/Dk/Lux Ch Ridley Pamatka ShCM, DKKV'11, KV'13

In addition to all her titles, she made history for the breed by being the first Cesky Terrier to qualify for the Champion Stakes finals, and has not only gained her Czech title, but also the 'Club Winner' title and has twice won the Horak Memorial Trophy. Here she is being judged at the Eurodog Show at Kortrijk in Belgium.

ERIK is a champion of both Denmark and Luxembourg. He is also a Danish Club Champion - an award that can only be won by dogs that are already national champions. Here he is with Kirsten, winning his crowning club certificate.

Here is TOMÁŠ striding out in the Terrier Group at South Wales Championship show, where he was Best of Breed. He has had several other good wins, including BOB at National Terrier - the oldest and greatest terrier show in the world - and Best Junior at the French Championnat.

With her striking colour, ANIKA has also been successful in the show ring. Here she is on the move at the International show in Gent, Belgium, where she won the CACIB. She competed at the World Dog Show in Milan where she won the CAC at the club show.

XAVER too has a good show record. He went to Milan with Anika, and came home with the Junior World Winner and Italian Junior Champion titles.

XANTHE has never been a show dog, but at Crufts 2017 TEAM RIDLEY was one dog short in the Breeders' Competition. Two months earlier, she had been a working terrier with no ambitions for stardom, and her coat cut short. Suddenly she found herself in a show lead, strutting her stuff like an old hand. Here she is, leading Pamatka and Tomáš into the Crufts BIS ring.
