02. Januar 2010 - Prüfungsresultate von "älteren Herren"

In 2009 Outi Zuberbühler and Haredale Irish Flint obtained the qualification "excellent" AKZ three times in succession in Search Dog thus qualifying for the Special Medal. What a worthy termination of a wonderful working career! Congratulations to the two of you!

After not passing their second run in a tracking dog trial (due to unfortunate weather conditions) Veronika Schwarz and Haredale Ganesh were successful today, gaining 93 points and the qualification "very good" in TD97 class 1. Well-done - what fun for the old boy!

Wednesday, 6th January 2010 - Happy Birthday Candra!

Today Haredale Candra celebrates her 16th birthday. Marlene Sonderegger writes: "... of course she is still enjoying her old age, slow, unhurried, reading the "newspaper", eating everything - today nearly a live mouse; only just managed to stop her - she is very well..."

I do hope for Marlene and Fritz that Candra may be with them for a while longer. 

Sunday, 3rd January 2010 - Field Trial (French Style) in Magliano Sabina (Rome)

Tanja Grygar and Haredale Questing Quip come 4th with the qualification "excellent". Congratulations!


News: Dunlin offspring

I have just received another official score of a puppy from Dunlin's litter with Offlead Mocush in Italy. The bitch, Shegrowing Kalipso, has A/A hips and  0/0 elbows. A big thank you to the owner, Michele Isaja, for having sent me this information. Further, congratulations to the 1st place in puppy class in a working test!

Goodbye to the father of the Questing litter

7th February - Avalanche Dog Trial "Lutertanne" in the Toggenburg

Avalanche Dog 3
2nd with 289 excellent AKZ: Enchanting Goldcrest vom Keien Fenn. After Cresty had a "baby-break" during the last avalanche dog season, she proved that she still knows what to do.

4th with 281 very good AKZ: Haredale Midge with Ursula Müller-Reich.

Well done, the two of you!
Thus a further Haredale Team is qualified for the Swiss avalanche dog championship.

Haredale Little Dart and André Bühler couldn't pass, bacause Dart ran straight over the rucksack buried on the first line of the fine-search.

Haredale Masha sprained her carpal joint and wasn't concentrated on the job any more. The team, Sandra Ruggli-Klee and Masha couldn't get a pass.

6th February  - Avalanche Dog Trial "Tra da Nüm" in Bosco Gurin

Avalanche Dog 2
1st with  295 excellent AKZ: Dunlin von der Atterseewelle. My Dunny-Bear beat himself gaining such a high number of points that I would never have dreamt of!

13th February 2010 - Avalanche Dog Trial in Bisisthal (SZ)

In 1979 I competed in the very first avalanche dog trial in my life, here in this remote valley - together with my first Labrador, Dirk, I won the trial. Yesterday I ran Dunlin in his first top level (Av3) trial - and we won, gaining an incredible number of points. And this, although Dunlin ripped off part of a claw making the root protrude when digging powerfully to get the rucksack out (it is buried 50cm deep in the snow) in the so-called "fine-search", where a dog has to quarter for 10 minutes in order to cover the 50x50m area systematically as required in the regulations.

Avalanche Dog 3 (Av3) = Higest level

1st 291 excellent AKZ Dunlin von der Atterseewelle
4th 287 excellent AKZ Haredale Masha with Sandra Ruggli-Klee
10th 263 good AKZ Haredale Midge with Ursula Müller-Reich
11th 262 good AKZ Haredale Little Dart with André Bühler

Congratulations to everyone - we "old avalanchers" know how quickly time runs and the points drop!

AKZ = Ausbildungskennzeichen = the dog has qualified, i.e. passed

1st March 2010 - Hip & Elbow scores of the S-litter

Haredale Snipe:   HD A2/A2, ED 0/0

I am as happy as Verena Begemann about this excellent result!


3rd March 2010 - The qualifiers for the Swiss All Breed Avalanche Dog Championship on 20th & 21st March in Davos are online

Out of 25 Teams there are 4 pure Haredales :
André Bühler with Haredale Little Dart (Bramble's daughter)
Sandra Ruggli with Haredale Masha
Fränzi Walser with Haredale Meadowlark
Ursula Müller-Reich with Haredale Midge
(The 3 Ms are granddaughters of Bramble and daughters of  Spike)

I myself will be running Dunlin v.d. Atterseewelle (a great-grandson of Bramble and son of Spike)

Further Bramble-offspring qualified:
Inès Kramers with Quackskill Quilly Quasimoda (Bramble's granddaughter)
Silvia Peter Pfister mit Eremias Banyu v.d. Atterseewelle (Bramble's grandson)

Congratulations to everybody - and lots of luck at the event!

Thus there are 5 grandchildren of my unforgotten Bramble qualified, as well as 4 sons or daughters of my unsurpassed Spike (Enchanting Goldcrest would also be qualified, however we can only run one dog!) 

I think I know why I am planning a combination of Haredale Orenda (a granddaughter of Bramble) with Haredale Phoenix (my last son of Spike and a son of Haredale Little Dart, running under André Bühler).


3rd March 2010 - Two further official scores of the S-litter

Haredale Snowflash "Upi" in Finland isHD A/A, ED 0/0

Haredale Skene in Germany is HD A2, ED 0/0, shoulders OCD free.

I am so happy with the owners,  Timo Aho und Dietrich Sewerin, that they have a sound dog, which they may now exercise without any restrictions whatsoever.

13th March 2010 - All S-litter Hip- and Elbow-scoresreceived

Haredale Sprig: HD B1, ED 0/0 - and once more the shoulders were not x-rayed as the vet (a specialist who knows what is required for retrievers!) knew that shoulders need not be done... How are my puppy buyers to stand a chance against all these vets who know everything better and refuse to do what their clients ask of them!

Nonetheless I am as happy as Holger und Nickl Wurms about the good scores for hips and elbows!

9 puppies - 8 x HD A to A2, 1 x HD B1 and 1 x bad hips (we are waiting for the official score to come back) and 9 S-offspring all ED 0/0.


14.03.10 - Avalanche Dog Trial  Kiental-Gorneren

Class Avalanche Dog 3

1st 292 excellent AKZ, André Bühler with Haredale Little Dart
3rd 282 very good AKZ, Verena Ommerli with Enchanting Goldcrest
5th 262 good AKZ, Franziska Walser with Haredale Meadowlark

What a stunning result by André and Dart - let's just hope this "fitness" can be kept up one more week! Lark and Crest both suffered from their handlers' nerves, as we seem to have put a lot of pressure on them - we are continuing to work on keeping cool!

A big thank you to Chrigel & Katrin Sieber of the Naturefriends' Chalet Gornern-Griesalp for this wonderful venue for a trial and the delicious food!

13.03.10 Working Test in Hettenschwil - Himmelcup

Novice Class

Unfortunately, Haredale Ramses and André Bühler don't come through without a zero and thus cannot get a result.

Intermediate Class

2nd excellent, 92 points, Lis Eggenberger and Haredale Panya.

Congratulations! Great that the two of you get on so well!

Open Class

9th good, 80 points, André Bühler and Haredale Little Dart.

... and the next day they compete in and win an avalanche dog trial! 

12.03.10  Tracking Dog Trial

Veronika Schwarz and Haredale Ganesh do not succeed in their first TD3 trial. But the next run will be along for the "old fellow" - and his joy to still be able to do some work remains unfailing.


20th/21st March 2010 - Swiss All-Breed Championship for Avalanche Dogs - climax and end of the season of work in the snow 

Absolutely perfect organization by the KV March-Höfe and two sunny, nearly too hot days (unfortunately it snowed during the prizegiving ceremony); a challenging avalanche search area and minutely prepared fine search areas. A great big thank you to all the helpers and to the two judges who gave so much of their spare time for us in order to make this championship possible!

Of the 25 teams running 14 could, unfortunately, not qualify, i.e. get an AKZ (= the team reached a minimum of 70 points in every part of the competition)

I am immensely proud of the four Haredale-handlers and their dogs, who all got a qualification - even more, not just a qualification but even two teams in the awards.

Swiss Champion Avalanche Dog Rescue 2010
André Bühler with Haredale Little Dart, 288 points, excellent AKZ
and in 3rd place
Sandra Ruggli with Haredale Masha, 283 points, very good AKZ

Absolutely incredible! Simply wonderful! Once more congratulations!

The further results:
12th place with 261 points, good AKZ, Ursula Müller-Reich with Haredale Midge
13th place with 258 points, good AKZ, Franziska Walser with Haredale Meadowlark

Congratulations to you too, for qualifying in this demanding championship and most of all a GREAT BIG THANK YOU for all the work you do with your dogs and all the wonderful results you achieve!

... and I myself with "Dunny-Bear"? Dunlin would have got more points if it hadn't been for me not letting him work the search area systematically from the beginning. I am more than pleased with him - as to whether he is so with me, I don't know - 5th place with 279 points, very good AKZ.


20th March 2010 - Working Test in Meienried (CH)

Novice Class

7th place with 93 points "good" - Andy Blockus with Haredale Reelan
Congratulations to Andy and Reelan.

Unfortunately no qualification - André Bühler with Haredale Ramses.
A pity, but as the Swiss Avalanche Dog Championship Winner 2010 I think you can just about survive a failed working test, can't you?


30th March  - Last official score for the S-litter

The official BVA/KC scores for Haredale Spark have arrived. Hip score 23/28 and elbows 0/0.

28th March - Red Cross Rescue Trial of the KV-Langenthal

Class SanH1
4th place with 263 points "good" AKZ - Barbara Banholzer with Haredale Questing Jools.
The two failed to find the object in the area seach part of the trial, which leads to a deduction of 20 points.
Congratulations on the obedience part, in which the two got 93 points (out of 100)! Carry on like this!

28th March - Qualification Test for Disaster Rescue Work

Haredale Leven and Regula Koch pass this qualification test. Congratulations!

27th March - Qualification Test for Area Search Work

Haredale Mersey and Antje Gunzinger pass this qualification test. Congratulations!

Some update on news... finally in English again - sorry about this

11th July 2010 - Working Test "Clauert Cup"

Vivian-Yasmin Wolf and Haredale Spirit pass their very first working test gaining 101 out of 120 points ending up in 11th place. Well done you two - carry on like this!

11th July 2010 - Cold Game Test - Beginner's Class (NOME-B ALO1) in Evo (Finland)

Only three days after their win in the working test, Tiina and Dude have a go at a cold game test. And what a wonderful job they did, coming home with a 1st prize. Great job you two!

In cold game tests no placings are given; you only get a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd prize, which may be likened to the qualifications "excellent", "very good", and "good", as well as a short report on the dog's performance written by the judge.  The test consisted of double mark, one in the water on in the reeds, a blind 20 metres over a stream, and a free search in two differents areas.
After this there is a rabbit track 100-200 meters and in beginners class the dog must find the start of the track by himself.

8th July 2010 - Working Test (WT ALO1)  in Mustiala (Finland)

Tiina Mursula and Haredale Torry "Dude" compete in their first ever Working Test in Beginner's Class - and win the competition gaining 1st place and the qualification 1st prize (which may be compared to the qualification "excellent") There were 30 dogs running and Tiina and Dude got 85 points. Congratulations to a wonderful start into the season!

3rd July 2010 - Red Cross Rescue Test in Davos-Laret

Brigitte Kaiser and Haredale Nandin achieve a total of 276 "very good" AKZ in the top class,  SanH3 (running in the greatest midday heat!) They end up in 3rd place. Congratulations to the great feat!


On the versatility of Haredale Labradors - also a goal in breeding!

19th June 2010 - TKJ 500m Blood track test in the Canton of Obwalden

Thomas Amrein and Haredale Oraya pass this blood tracking test with the highest qualification possible, a 4+! Congratulations on this superb performance! It may be added that Oraya is not just a useful shooting man's companion, as well as a family pet, her main job is working as a drug sniffer dog for the police of the Canton of Lucerne. Thank you Thomas for giving Oraya such a wonderfully fulfilling working life!

24th July - Working Test - Schwaben Trophy (Germany)

Wolfgang Zeidler and Pacey Pepper run in Novice, where they come 4th gaining 106 out of 120 points, only 1 point behind places 1 to 3. Out of 40 competitors only 20 managed to get through. Congratulations to the two of you!

18th July 2010 - Dummy-Test in Krauchenwies (Germany)

Klaus Farr and Orre qualify in Dummy O-class with 57 points "good". Well done!

11th July 2010 - Team Working Test - Stormy Weather (Germany)

Dagmar Hönnebeck with Olwyn (63 points) , Doris Zeller with Gunsights Bean Cracker (44 points) and Harald Hubert, who replaced Wolfgang Zeidler's Liffey (in season) with his 9-year-old Keena (54 points) reach 15th place with 161 points. Well fought, you six!

In the individual competition Klaus Farr and Orre are very unfortunate, getting two noughts. In the next compeititon there will be more luck I'm sure!


... our faithful companions always leave us too early ...

Haredale Earl Holmes *22.01.1996 - 26.05.2010

Moira and Ueli Moser write: "After fourteen years, four months and four days we had to relieve him from the pain his bone-cancer was causing him." Ueli and Earl did a large number of jobs for the police of the Kanton of Bern - year after year they took home small tin beakers for their success in their search for drugs.

I am so sorry to hear that you have now also lost this loveable companion after having lost Derek much too early.

Haredale Ena *22.01.1996 - 07.08.2010

Antonia Tischhauser writes: "We were no dream-couple when it came to competitions, which was due to the two-legged part of the team. But when I look back how my friends nearly fought over who would be able to look after Ena for a holiday because she was so obedient, and she got on with everything, and when I think of the boarding kennel (which I had to use now and again) where they told me it was wonderful to have Ena visit as they could always let her run free in the group and she would have a marvellously calming effect on the other dogs, I am nevertheless a bit proud. A lovely time has come to an end. The 9-year-old Cairn Terrier, Nouk and I will have to go on without our little Ena."

All those who do not keep their four-legged companions as "working animals" only can understand Moira, Ueli and Antonia's sadness over the loss of their faithful pals.

9th October ~ Shall be back in Switzerland as from 22nd October.

1st October 2010 - Unfortunately, still no update on results... I am abroad

Important notice to everybody who wants to contact me in the next two weeks. I am in Cornwall doing a project week with a class. Unfortunately, I had both a car accident (nobody hurt, just the rear door smashed) and lost my mobile...

Whoever wants to contact me would therefore please contact me on my GB mobile number: +44 (0)7570037541.

I can't check my e-mails regularly, so calling me is a safer bet.

Swiss All-breed Utility Dog Championship on 20./21. November 2010 in Brittnau

Another Haredale wins a title in 2010!

In spring the mother, Haredale Little Dart (handled by André Bühler), wins the title of Swiss Avalanche Dog Champion, now the son wins the title of

 Swiss Champion in Companion Dog 3

Last year they came 2nd, this year they are winners with 291 points and the qualification "excellent".
What an incredible feat - congratulations to Res Krebs and Haredale New Nando.

In excellent, but rather unrewarding 4th place - the same place as last year, thus proving their consistency - are Ursula Müller-Reich and Haredale Midge. They were awarded 284 points and the qualification "very good". Only 7 teams out of 26 managed to gain excellent of very good. Congratulations to the two of you! 

Red Cross Rescue 3

Unfortunately Sandra Ruggli-Klee and Haredale Masha failed to find 2 of the persons and the object in the search, which means there was no chance of them contending for any awards for we all know that in rescue work finding all the mock-injured persons as well as the object is the essential point. Out of the 20 teams competing at this championship only 8 managed to find the 3 missing people and the object. All the more impressive, therefore, that Sandra and Masha showed lovely obedience work gaining 90 points out of 100!

Once more congratulations to all 3 Haredale teams for qualifying to run in this championship.


Please help me to set up a list of all the tests and trials Haredales have run in in the year 2010:

Unfortunately I have not had the time to write regular updates of all the tests and trials Haredales have run in since August. I would therefore ask you to send me a complete list of all the competitions you and your dog have run in stating the date, place, type of trial and the result so that I can write a complete list for the entire year.

Thank you very much for your help!
