Breeds Of The Week (21)

Breeds Of The Week (21) 1

The Petit Basset Griffon Vendéen

The Petit Basset Griffon Vendéen (pronounced peh-TEE bah-SAY grih-FON von-day-ON, shortened to PBGV) is unsurprisingly from the Vendéen region of France.
This beautiful beast was bred to be hardy and used to hunt small game in the rough terrain of Vendée. Their attractive tousled appearance is matched by their happy personalities, they are affectionate, playful, but like all hounds led by its nose. If let off the lead be prepared for them to take their own course should an interesting scent be picked up.
An enclosed garden goes without saying for this wilful companion, they have a lot of energy and can be a little challenging to train. Known as the happy breed, they are sweet natured and loving.
They can be vocal, and as mentioned already their hunting instinct is strong, but they adore children, and noise and activity does not affect them, they simply love everyday life.
There is actually a beautiful PBGV in our agility class at the moment, her name is Audrey and she is an absolute delight. When she is ‘on it’ she is amazing to watch, she does have the occasional ‘Audrey moment’ but her owner does eventually manage to get her attention back on what she’s supposed to be doing. We love the Petit Basset Griffon Vendéen.

The Javanese

This beautiful beast is related to the Siamese. There are quite a variety of breeds bred from the Siamese, the Balinese, Colorpoint Shorthair, Oriental Long and Shorthairs, and then the Javanese. Born originally from a Balinese and a Colorpoint Shorthair, the Javanese has some of the Siamese characteristics but with a longer coat length with more variety of colour.
The Javanese is the ideal cat for people who love to have their beloved companion with them all the time, not quite as demanding for attention as the Siamese, they will follow you from room to room, miaowing to join in conversations, and trying to let you know whatever is on their mind.
As a food fancier, this cat can be easily trained, they will also try to copy you learning to open doors or drawers.
Affectionate and with a strong desire to be with their people, they are playful and intelligent cats, great jumpers, and quick to learn interactive toys. This beautiful beast would make for a wonderful companion and family cat.

I can’t recommend highly enough

We ordered a lovely new Dogs and Horses collar for our whippet puppy. The price was great, and the collar arrived super quickly – a lot faster than advertised. Packaging was excellent and the after-sales service was great. I can’t recommend highly enough. We will be ordering the next size up from Fletchers, for sure!

We bought a lovely collar for our Springer spaniel from Fletcher of London. The customer service was brilliant. The wrapping/packaging around the collar was lovely and the collar itself suits our dog so well. We are really pleased with our purchase and would use this company again (the handwritten note and treats were also a lovely touch and much appreciated, thank you)
