Rescue News 

No dogs in Rescue at the moment

An Ode to my little Rosie - Jo Briggs.
 My dearest darling mummy I thought I’d write this letter And   once you’ve seen my view of things I hope you feel much   better. You see I know you’re troubled About some things I do
 So take a while, sit down, relax And I’ll explain it all to you
 I’m getting old now mummy And I can’t be here forever
 And though I know it’s scary We’ll get through this together
 My heart it has a murmur And my paws they’re always sore
 And now I’ve started to wander There’s locks on every door
 My walks are now much easier And I’m always on a lead
 But I know it’s for my safety And that’s what oldies need
 My pram has been a godsend It really is the best I can walk   until I’m tired Then climb inside and rest I know that it upsets   you When you find me in strange places But mummy it’s for   peace and quiet Away from all the races I like to hide under   the bed Or curl up in the loo Behind a door where you can’t   see It’s not to worry you You see I’m aging mummy And   sometimes I get mixed up And my mind is slowly fading
 But you still see me as a pup So mummy please believe me
 When I tell you not to worry I’ll let you know when I’m ready
 But for now I’m in no hurry Keep loving me the way you do
 And I’ll be forever glad And when I do my crazy things
                             Just smile and don’t be sad

Timmys Awards

Update on Timmy MAY 2019   Wonderful for Timmy and Heather.

Just thought that I would let you know that Timmy and I entered a Scentwork UK Level 6 trial on 18th May, we qualified, that means passed, and came 4th out of 10. Well impressed with this little dog, and he was little in comparison with the rest
of the dogs. - Heather

"Thought that I should update you on Timmy's Scentwork UK
progress.  We did our Level 5 this afternoon, 28th October, 2018, not only did we pass we came 2nd in a group of 11 dogs.  Timmy was a really good boy, and I didn't make too many mistakes. - Heather"

He passed his level 4 on 10th June, 2018 at trial in Daglington, Glous. He didn't win this time but the trial was hard for a little dog, I was really proud of him.
Our trainer says that we join the 'big boys' now that we are working towards level 5. The structure of the trial changes so this could take us a while.

 Timmy did his level 3 trial today. Oct/17 He won again scoring 98/100, he scored full marks but my handling skills lost 2 marks, must do better next time.

Great News from Timmy he passed his Scentwork UK level 1
last October, and his level 2 last Friday, 27th May, 2017. 
Timmy also came first in both these trials, the other dogs were 
Spaniels, Boxers and German Shepherds. I am very proud of him.

 Well done to Heather and Timmy - The Lancashire Heeler Club

 Rescue page on this website



On Sunday the 24th August, 2014, at 1 o clock, held an informal 'meet' of  Lancashire Heelers and their owners,  on the Green at Lytham sea front, opposite the Lowther Gardens.


Everyone was cordially invited and we had a good
"picnic"/dog socialising afternoon,  to promote the Lancashire Heelers to as many of the numerous inquisitive members of the public who usually frequent the sea front promenade on their weekend day out.




"Having read the book  'Crackers Come Hear', it was a very moving story and kept me engrossed, I thoroughly enjoyed it and even now months after I finished it, it still leaves me with memories, and I read a lot and it has to be a very good book for it to stick in my memory slot. I can more than recommend this book for Heeler owners or for the people who find themselves in the same position." Enid Lord

Thank you for including my book Crackers... Come Hear on your website. Enid Lord's testimonial was lovely and I thank her most sincerely for her words as well as for you to post it on your site. I have finished the audio book of Crackers... Come Hear and am most excited to now be able to tell our story to my many blind friends who use Guide Dogs for their assistance. Thank you everyone at LHC for your support over so many years. All the best throughout the coming new year to all. With hugs and smiles, Dennis Robertson

Stall Merchandise




Lancashire Heelers are a native breed of the United Kingdom originating from the County of Lancashire, they were used on  farms to herd cattle and sheep, they are the smallest dog in the Pastoral group, this group comprises of dogs who were used since the very early days of mans first close association with dogs

In 1978 a group of  Heeler enthusiasts from all parts of the United Kingdom decided to form a group  and named it The Lancashire Heeler Club. Then under the guidance of a lady Mrs Gwen Mackintosh the dogs were recognised by the Kennel Club in 1981.  Our aim is to help and promote our lovely dogs. 

Looking round this website you will see information on where to buy a puppy,  breeding advice, health information,  health lists, and how to join the Club,  information on the show scene, agility and other activities:  Our Shows and events.  Judging lists.  Rescue. Our rules and Kennel Club Code of Ethics.

We also have a section for the popular Stall Merchandise.
