Pauline is our newly appointed Treasurer who takes over from Karen Sandells.  Pauline shows beautiful Wire Dachshunds at Open & Championship Shows.  A breed which I believe she has been involved with for some time.  Pauline helps with collecting subs and Match Entries.  She also helps out with the training/handling when required.

Bridget Meads (Jasbri)

I was born into dogs, as my parents were founder members of Worthing & District C. S.   My earliest showing experience was at the age of 4, showing Borzois!  I have shown for most of my life and although my first love was my miniature poodle, whippets have been my constant love.   As well as showing in my breed,  I enjoy teaching and showing in handling classes.  For the past couple of years, I have been involved in Therapy Dogs Nationwide where we “share the love”,  give comfort and confidence, and educate youngsters about animal welfare and safety.

Janine Naunton

Janine has been a member of Shoreham Ringcraft for some years.  She is a dog groomer.  Janine shows and breeds Welsh Springer Spaniels.  She also shows her mother’s affenpinscer (Bow),  and owns Whippets.
