Oolagha is the Kennel Club Affix granted to myself in 1989, when I was showing Standard and Miniature Poodles.
I AM PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THAT OOLAGHA WAS THE FIRST AND ONLY KENNEL IN THE UNITED KINGDOM TO HAVE MADE UP FOUR POWDER PUFF CHAMPIONS INCLUDING ONE HOME BRED!!!
I have owned Chinese Cresteds since 1993 when I purchased my first dog from the Churrasco Kennels of Des & Di Jenkins. Sadly the first one I purchased was not really good enough for the show ring and in 1994 along came Churrasco Cream Dream At Oolagha who was destined to become my first Champion. Dream was awarded a total of 8 CC's and 6 RCC's, numerous BOB, Groups and BIS's at Open Show Level, including 3 BIS at Toy Dog Societies. She was retired from the show ring in 2001 after winning Best Veteran In Show at Chinese Crested Dog Club Championship Show under Mr Foster Parker (Heathermount)
I have shown both hairless and powder puffs - but after a ten year break from the show ring since 2011 I have concentrated solely on the powder puffs. I was lucky enough to be able to purchase a puppy dog from Slovakia. In 2012 he became my second champion - Ch Poarott Isaac Mizrahi At Oolagha (Imp Svk) with 4 CC's all awarded by breed specialists, Bruce Jackson (Brusko), Stuart Payne (Habiba), Robert Dunlop (Habiba) and Janet Knowles (Jhanchi) and 1 RCC award by well known all rounder Peter Jolley. Izzy has produced one Champion, two CC winners, two RCC winners, and one JW winner to date.
December 2011 saw the arrival of my second litter, Ch Poarott Isaac Mizrahi At Oolagha was mated to my Chang Lein At Oolagha - producing a litter of six puppies. I kept one little girl, Oolagha Kristol Rose who has since been shown successfully gaining her first Challenge Certificate at Birmingham National under breed specialist Cherry Gwynne (Chezic) in May 2015. Rosie was awarded her second Challenge Certificate at Bournemouth 2015 and she gained her crown at UK Toy 2016 under breed specialist Lisa McKenzie (Chinois). Rosie gained her wings in October 2022.
In 2012 Izzy was joined by Ranya Poarott At Oolagha (Int Ch Belshaw's Royal Bain De Champagne x Int Ch Irina Poarott), again from Slovakia, and she was shown successfully, she gained her first CC at Chinese Crested Club of GB under breed specialiat Robert Dunlop (Habiba), her second CC at Manchester 2016 under toy specialist Martin Freeman (Pepsidee) and gained her crown at SKC August 2016. Sadly Ranya gained her wings in 2020.
In 2016 my next addition to my show team was Jamming's Exclusive To Oolagha (Int Ch Jack Sparrow Poarott x Jamming's A Little Luv Luv) from my friends Lella & Samu Wikstrom in Finland. Elton is co-owned with Gwenllian Rees (Parcauwen). I am pleased to announce that Elton gained his first CC with BOB at UK Toy Dog 2018 under breed specialist Christine Hinton (Cheeswood). Elton was awarded RCC at Three Counties under breed specialist Cherry Gwynne (Chezic). Elton was shown sparingly during 2019 and at his first show of the year was awarded the RCC by breed specialist David Lodge (Valdajenlo) followed by another RCC at South Wales under breed specialist Alexandra Forth (Omegaville). Unfortunately following Covid and due to an extensive dental in 2021 Elton had to be retired from the ring and is now living a super life in Wales with Gwenllian.
In May 2019 Am Ch Halcyon Lady Luck - aka Lucy - was entrusted to me by Tracey Maigne in Florida, USA, to be shown and handled by me in the UK. Lucy is a sweetie and I hope to do well with her. Lucy qualified for Crufts at her first show in the UK, and gained her stud book number in October 2019. Lucy will be shown selectively by myself in 2022. Lucy gained her 1st CC at Chinese Crested Club of GB 2021 at her first show after lockdown.
Born in February 2022 Sired by Jamming's Exclusive To Oolagha x Parcauwen Lunar Eclipse With Oolagha our latest show prospect Oolagha Kristol Ayla. Ayla has been shown at Championship level, gaining qualification for Crufts 23 and Best Puppy In Breed at SWKA, judge Dawn Russell (Rusmar) and BPIB at Midland Counties under judge Dawn Dixon (Debrita). Ayla won her first RCC and Best Puppy In Breed at LKA under judge Angela Draper-Andrews (Lasang) and won her second RCC at Manchester Ch Show under judge Alexandra Forth (Omegaville), both under 12 months old. Ayla won Limit at W.E.L.K.S. and RCC under Stuart Mallard (Toy Specialist). Ayla won RCC's at Paignton, Judge Linda Biss, RCC at CCDC Judge David Ramos Martinez, and RCC at Bournemouth Judge Derfel Owen
Ayla gained her Junior Warrent at just under 12.5 months.
All my dogs have been fully health tested for all testable diseases, PRA prcd, PRA rcd3, PLL, DM, and vWD - all tested by DNA. All my dogs are fed on raw food.
