The Greater London Old English Sheepdog Club

The aim of the Greater London O.E.S. Club is to promote the responsible ownership and breeding of the Old English Sheepdog. To this end, we produce an informative club magazine, operate an advice line, advertise our service in Dogs Today and Dogs Monthly newspapers, produce lists of breeders and occasionally hold social or education events during the year for Bobtail owners, whether they are show dogs or purely pets. Committee Members are always on hand to answer any queries and to give advice on training, diet, grooming, etc. Members are notified with details of forthcoming events.

 

The Club operates a telephone "Help Line" where Committee Members are available to answer any of those day-to-day queries that Bobtail ownership may bring. Contact:-

The glossy, annual magazine "Yours Faithfully" is posted free to all members. In addition to keeping the clubs numerous U.K and Overseas members informed of our activities, this magazine also contains a wealth of useful articles and information. Previous editions have for example, included articles on grooming and coat care, the official Breed Standard, breeding, showing and judging.  Back editions of "Yours Faithfully" and our vast array of Bobtail items are available from Helen Woods on 01234 838249 or helen@gloesc.co.uk.

 

We also produce a book of Champions. These books feature a photograph and 5 generation pedigree of every British OES to gain its title.  See "Shopping Page".

 

We also produce the years show guide, detailing all the dates and judges for Championship and Breed Club open shows.

 

 Our shows have the usual breed classes with the club stand and refreshments, all aiming to create an enjoyable atmosphere for all the family, whether pet owners or exhibitors.

 

Details of our forthcoming shows are also available on this web site.
