Mr Chris Van de Burgt
I was born in1957 into a family of animal lovers. My parents kept G.S.D’s and Toy Poodles alongside horses and many other animals. Aged 12 I won Best In Show with a G.S.D. at a local Companion Show and from that day I was hooked. It was my love for dogs that started as a child
and is still my passion today.
I have handled many dogs at Championship show level in the U.K. And in Europe.
My first Champion was an Akita which I made up in 2002 and with a Japanese Akita Inu I achieved TOP RARE BREED and TOP UTILITY PUPPY in 2008.
I have owned Pomeranians for ten years and have had some show success. I achieved TOP PUPPY
in the breed in 2011, an oversea’s Champion Norvanik Filthy Rich was made up in 2012, the same year I won res Dog C.C. At Crufts with “Poser” My first U.K. Champion Norvanik Gold Digger JW
gained her title in 2014, her daughter Champion Norvanik Makin Whoopee JW gained her title aged just over 12 months in May this year.
I started judging in 1991, I am all the Pomeranian Club’s “B” list and have been a committee member of The Pomeranian Club for the past four years.

11. Best Puppy in Show. From 1st January 2015, and for a period of two years the Kennel Club Show
Regulations which stipulate that dogs must be entered and exhibited in a breed class before exhibiting
in an Any Variety Class/Stakes Class and that only unbeaten dogs are eligible to compete in the group
or best in competitions are suspended. (Please refer to the FAQs on the Kennel Club Website for further
information). Where a Best Puppy in Show competition is scheduled the Best Puppy in Show is a puppy which
has competed and is unbeaten by any other puppy exhibited at the same show. A puppy is a dog of six and not
exceeding twelve calendar months of age on the first day of the Show. Where the Best in Show is a puppy it will
also automatically be Best Puppy in Show. Similarly, if the Reserve Best in Show is a puppy which has only been
beaten by an adult dog it will also automatically be Best Puppy in Show. Consequently, selection of Best Puppy
in Show must follow the selection of Best in Show. Best Puppy in Show must be selected from puppies which have
been judged and which are unbeaten by any other puppy.
Withdrawal from Other Competition. Puppies which become eligible for Best Puppy in Show may be withdrawn
from all other competition, other than Breed Classes, prior to the competition for Best Puppy in Show as
appropriate in order to remain unbeaten. A puppy beaten in competition for Best Puppy in Show may subsequently
be exhibited in all competition for which it was previously eligible. The dog declared Best Puppy in Show,
however, must not compete in any subsequent competition.
Proviso. For the purpose of this Regulation, dogs beaten in competition for Stud Dog, Brood Bitch, Progeny,
Brace and Team or a Special Award confined to one breed will not be considered to be a beaten dog.
12. Best in Show. From 1st January 2015, and for a period of two years the Kennel Club Show Regulations
which stipulate that dogs must be entered and exhibited in a breed class before exhibiting in an Any
Variety Class/Stakes Class and that only unbeaten dogs are eligible to compete in the group or best in
competitions are suspended. (Please refer to the FAQs on the Kennel Club Website for further information).
The dog declared Best in Show is a dog which has competed and is unbeaten by any other dog exhibited
at the same Show. Best in Show must be selected from the exhibits declared Best of Sex providing they are
unbeaten winning dogs. Reserve Best in Show must be selected from the Best Opposite Sex and the Reserve
Best of Sex to the exhibit declared Best in Show. The dogs declared Best in Show and Reserve Best in Show
must not compete in any subsequent competition.
Withdrawal from other competition. Dogs which become eligible for Best in Show may be withdrawn from all
other competition other than breed classes prior to the competition for Best in Show as appropriate in order to
remain unbeaten. A dog beaten in competition for Best in Show may subsequently be exhibited in all competition
for which it was previously eligible. The dogs declared Best in Show and Reserve Best in Show however,
must not compete in any subsequent competition.
Proviso. For the purposes of this Regulation, dogs beaten in competition for Stud Dog, Brood Bitch, Progeny,
Brace and Team or a Special Award confined to a single breed, will not be considered to be beaten dogs.
13. Exhibits will not be admitted to Best in Show competition after a period of ten minutes has elapsed since the
announcement that exhibits are required for judging, unless they have been unavoidably delayed by previous
judging not being completed on time, and then only with the special permission of the Show Management.

Club, which will be followed by advertisement in the Canine Press wherever possible.

to the show/event can be made. All overseas entries without an Authority to Compete number will be returned
to the exhibitor/competitor.
17. DOGS IN VEHICLES ON HOT DAYS. Your dog is vulnerable and at risk during hot weather and the Kennel Club offers the following guidance to help guide you through the do’s and don’ts travelling to and whilst at Kennel Club Llicensed events
When travelling to a show please take a moment to consider whether the route to the show is on a busy holiday
route, and leave earlier to avoid increased time in traffic jams.
If your vehicle is not air-conditioned seriously consider whether travelling to the show is a good idea at all.
The vehicle should be as fully ventilated as possible, and plenty of stops should be taken, with lots of water
available to drink.
Ensure your dog is not sitting in full sunlight. There should be plenty of free flowing air around the dog.
When at the show, never leave your dog in the vehicle.
Keep the dog in the shade — take your own shade, for example a large umbrella and always have plenty of
water available to drink so your dog stays well hydrated.
Avoid your dog taking part in unnecessary exertion, or from standing in exposed sunlight for extended lengths
Remember, if you feel hot your dog is very likely to feel much hotter and dehydrated, and this could lead to dire
results. Please look after your dog’s welfare.
WARNING: IF YOUR DOG IS FOUND TO BE AT RISK, FORCIBLE ENTRY TO YOUR VEHICLE MAY BE NECESSARY
WITHOUT LIABILITY FOR ANY DAMAGE CAUSED.
18. Not for Competition entries will be accepted. Details of each dog so entered must be recorded on the entry form
and must be Kennel Club registered
