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 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 stunning 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, one CC winner, 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 under breed specialist Diana Rich (Solsplash) and she gained her crown at UK Toy 2016 under breed specialist Lisa McKenzie (Chinois). Rosie will continue to be shown occassionally in Veteran Classes.
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 under breed specialist Janet Kirkwood (Helydon). Ranya is now retired and enjoying her life on the sofa!!
In 2016 my new addition to my show team is Jamming's Exclusive To Oolagha (Int Ch Jack Sparrow Poarott x Jamming's A Little Luv Luv) from my good friends Lella & Samu Wikstrom in Finland. Elton will be shown selectively from mid 2017 in partnership with my friend Gwenllian Rees (Parcauwen). We are 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 will be campaigned during 2019 and at his first show of the year was awarded the RCC by David Lodge (Valdajenlo).
In May 2019 Am Ch Halcyon Lady Luck was entrusted to us by Tracey Maigne in Florida, USA, to be shown and handled by us in the UK. Lucy is a sweetie and we hope to do well with her.
All my dogs are fully health tested for all testable diseases, PRA prcd, PRA rcd3, PLL, DM, and vWD - all tested by DNA.
I award Challenge Certificates in Chinese Cresteds, Lowchen (Little Lion Dogs), Pomeranian and Bichon Frise at Championship Show level. I am passed to award CC's in Papillons in 2021 and in 2020 I have the honour of being passed to judge the Toy Group at SKC. I judge at Open Show level within reasonable distance of Rugby, Warwickshire and hope to continue to progress with my judging in future.
