Wow! Wow! Wow! What an amazing Crufts Show we had this year!!! Both our Bichon Frisé boys were entered to compete on Sunday 8th March at the most famous dog show in the world, having qualified to participate in this event at dog shows held throughout the country during the previous 12 months. 

Our first dog to be shown was Calvin in the Puppy Dog Class and he only went and won it! We were very happy with an amazing first place at this huge show. Calvin, however, was not happy to leave it there, then went on to take the Best Male Puppy Award in the breed. 

Next up was our older boy Arthur, who was in a very large Post Graduate class where he stormed to second place. We were so chuffed with him and his performance in the ring. 

While grooming the boys ringside, Richard found himself being filmed by a large camera crew and then clips of him scissoring Calvin were used in national news articles on the BBC and various new channels – so it really was a great day for The Doggie Stylists!

All our team were there for this big event and we will remember it for a long time to come.

On Sunday the 23rd of February 2015 we took our latest Bichon puppy Calvin (ALIZO SAHARA) to compete in the Northern and Midland Bichon Frise Club Open Show where he swept the board winning his class, Best Male Bichon Frisé Puppy and then finally Best Puppy In Show. What a fantastic day! Calvin was prepared in the salon and handled at the show by Richard.
