Research Into Cushing’s Syndrome At Nottingham University

Researchers at the University of Nottingham’s School of Veterinary Medicine and Science are interested in investigating the characteristics of Cushing’s Syndrome within the Border Terrier breed and would be interested in hearing from owners of dogs affected by the disease, and also in details of dogs which have previously died from it.

This is one of the conditions being monitored by the Breed Health Group and we would encourage as many owners as possible to respond. We would also be grateful if these owners could also fill in our own health survey form.

The Midland Border Terrier February 2021 Open Show

It is with regret that the officers and committee of The Midland Border Terrier Club Show have decided to cancel the February 2021 open show.

Due to Government guidelines regarding social distancing and public gatherings, which are doubtful to be lifted in the very near future, there really is no option.

As well as all of this and most important we are mindful that the health and well being of all of our exhibitors, judges, stewards, and helpers is of paramount importance.

It is very disappointing for everyone but health and safety comes before a dog show and we look forward to seeing you at some point in 2021.

The Club have rearranged the 2020 Championship Show to be at The Birmingham National Dog Show on terrier day, 6th May 2021. The Midland ring will be adjacent to the Birmingham National Border Terrier ring with opposite sex’s judged in parallel.

This change of date has been approved by the KC and is subject to any restrictions relating to Government / KC advice on Covid-19
