Covid-19 Pandemic

By | Events


Due to the recent outbreak of the virus Covid-19 there have been many changes throughout the UK which you are probably now all aware of.

All public events have been cancelled, work restricted or even stopped in some cases and exercise limited.

How it effects the club – Events such as the fun days, picnics and any sort of meetings have been postponed until it is safe to do so. Our AGM was conducted online this year to ensure the smooth running of the club through this trying time.

How it effects those competing with their dogs – Dog shows throughout the UK have been cancelled or postponed due to the pandemic. It is currently unknown as to when they will begin to run from again.

Exercising your dogs – We recommend that you follow current government guidelines as to how often and where you are allowed to exercise your dogs.

Please stay safe during this difficult time.

Summer Picnic – 2019

By | Events | No Comments


The EMDC (UK) Summer Picnic was held on Sunday, 8th September 2019 at Kingsbury Water Park, nr Birmingham.  What a fabulous venue it was – though the bugs were biting well!

Fabulous turnout, with plenty of old and a few new faces too!  Loads of Estrela’s and extra special was the attendance of some short coats too!  The old Border Collie (Toby), Norwegian Buhund puppy (Sheira) and the two Hungarian Puli’s (Velcro & Mop) were also very welcome!

Please follow the link below to see some pictures from the day:

The EMDC (UK) invite you to their upcoming get together – the ‘Annual Picnic’.

All Estrela enthusiasts are welcome, whether you own an Estrela or not (yet!).  We have moved the venue further north to accommodate those living further up the UK, and hope this will encourage new people to join us for the day.

We will have an area roped off for our exclusive use (40m x 40m).

Bring your picnic, yourselves and your dogs!

For more information, please contact the Secretary.
