Jack Biddell’s August Update

Jack and Bolt had a great time at the KC International Festival and Dogs in Need. It could have gone better, but they had some great runs after Bolt’s recovery from a 12-14 week injury .

They came 1st in the International Young Handler Jumping at KC International Festival, 2nd in Grade 6 Agility at Dogs in Need, 1st in Junior Jumping at Dogs in Need and 1st in the YKC Agility Dog of the Year Qualifier, qualifying him for Crufts 2019 and the tryouts for the YKC fb team for 2019, which was his main aim for the week.

Really happy, thanks so much for supporting him.  Swapping him to Kronch Active for the week definately helped him cope with 10 days of dog shows after such a long break, but I think Bolt is ready for a rest now.

International Agility Festival

We would like to thank everyone that came to meet the Kronch team at the International Agility Festival that took place at Rockingham Castle.  We had a fantastic four days!  Although we had some long awaited rain, it didn’t dampen anyone’s spirit.

The Festival included graded classes for all height categories and all grades of agility dog and handler, so everyone had a chance to compete at their own level.   With a series of cup classes for all levels – the Starters Cup, Novice Cup, British Open and Nations Cup – as well as special classes for younger handlers and YKC members, there were many opportunities for the best performing dogs to secure a place at Crufts or at Discover Dogs.

We are pleased that many of the competitors that Kronch sponsor did so well in their competitions and we would like to extend a huge well done to all of them!

Natalie & Teek Prepare For Agility With Kronch

With Spring finally upon us, means the 2018 agility season is only around the corner. With local, national and international events soon to commence, we are enjoying hearing from those who use Kronch to help not only feed but keep their dogs healthy and happy with the season ahead.

Entering their 6th year competing, Natalie and Teek are preparing for the upcoming agility season. Soon to be 9 years old, Teek is continuing to be fed on Kronch Basic to ensure his health and energy is maintained.

“I can’t help but appreciate just how much Agility has taught me. There is so much more involved than stepping out on to the course and delivering your best run. The past 10 weeks have been about re-building our working relationship with Teek having a mental and physical break since the Olympia finals in December.

To me, that break was crucial in allowing him to have downtime, just like every athlete deserves. So, as I build him back up he receives support both physically, mentally and nutritionally by the best. The more I learn the more there is to do but thankfully for me, that’s the bit I love.

…Teek has always been a high dog around Agility and keeping a controlled hoist on him has been really important to ensure we can deliver the performance we need during the event. Ensuring Teek’s nutrition is balanced and gives him the energy he needs throughout our training and competition days is crucial and thanks to Kronch we seem to achieve just that.”

Ben Randall Wins Gun Dog Trainer of the Year 2017

 

It comes as no surprise to us that Ben Randall has been awarded the 2017 Gun Dog Trainer of the year.

As we all know, to set out on a designated career path, things have to fall into place; combining schooling, location, knowledge and a passion for the industry. To set out looking for – not only a job – but a full career that incorporates a lifestyle and passion, whilst leaving some time for family and friends, takes a lot more by way of commitment, drive and desire.

Moving from Bristol and heading to Ledbury after purchasing Ledbury Lodge kennels was the only the start, then came their first steps in building of becoming the best kennel facility in the country. We’re sure that even in the wildest dreams of Ben and Nikki Randall, they could not have imagined such a successful outcome, one not driven by luck, but by pure dedication and attention to detail to get things right.

When you step into Ledbury Lodge you step into a family atmosphere and a calming aura that tells you – not only are you leaving your dogs somewhere special you – but you are leaving them in the caring, attentive and understanding hands from the whole family. Ben coupled his passion of dog training, with bringing up two very talented boys who are setting great standards both academically but also in sports; improving day-by-day across an array of fields.

The dedication shown to the boys came to fruition at the Cocker Spaniel Championship in 2011, with FTCh Heolybwlch Fatty going on to the win the event, for the trainer. In 2012, the same trainer and dog combination went on to win the prestigious event again, the first time this back-to-back feat has been achieved since the mid 1970’s,

Whilst all of this was going on which, taking huge sums of hours in training and travel, Ledbury Lodge was steadily developing into the 5* kennel and training facility that you see today. Hundreds of keen dog owners, since the beginning – with the BG foundation training up to Field Trial Standard and above, along with a line of Beggarbush dogs – are now seen up and down the country; including the ever popular Kronch Cocker’s Tucker and Chester.

Another important partnership developed between Ben and Graham Tweed, of Kronch, as Graham was looking to develop a natural dog food to deliver the optimum performance from animals in Field Trials, Hunting, Agility and for dogs who just require that extra energy, as a result of their owners who loving long walks through the countryside. Graham had explained that he was looking, firstly, for a puppy food that would deliver all the requirements a puppy needs later in life helping enhance bone density, muscle structure, ligament strength, alertness and a coat that would keep the coldest of water – and weather conditions – at bay.

Kronch of course was a great foundation on which to build, as it was developed for Huskies in the harshest of environments, sleeping under snow but still being able to deliver a – sometimes – 12 hour stint pulling sleds. Graham had described it as maximum conversion to energy.

Kronch is produced from fresh salmon, delivered daily, allowing the plant to produce the finest cold pressed salmon oil; a massively important part of every dogs diet from 6 weeks onwards. Optimal Puppy food has been the Global food award winner for three years in a row, helping develop puppy to young adult condition, rivalled by no other food. Kronch Basic, Active, Grain Free and Agility are showing what a performance food can do, in playing a part in dog winning events in all fields, all over the world and at the highest levels.

Graham worked closely with Ben in making the BG Champions Choice food which is used on all of his dogs – and is highly recommended to clients and friends – with explanation of the early vision Graham had in making a food that delivered a maximum conversion to usable energy. Of course, the now ever popular Pemmican bar is perfect for replacing lost energy, in all fields of dog work and long country walks, providing a preventative into the ever-increasing Hypoglycemia in dogs as we look for more and more performance. Our association with, not only Ben, but all of his family and friends goes back a long wat and we are extremely proud of his achievements over the past few years and undoubtedly look forward to many more.

You can view the kennel and training facility at www.ledburylodgekennels.co.uk where you can arrange kennelling and training with Ben himself.

Congratulations from all of at Kronch and thank you for your input into, what is fast becoming, the top performance food in the country.
