Ghyllbeck's introduction to the show ring began

in 1971 with the arrival of our first GSP

Midlander Brown Velvet. Lisa proved to be a

quality specimen and had success at both Open

& Championship shows, in the days when classes

were few and far between. Exhibited by Barbara

they took their and the kennels first Best of Breed

in 1972, and in doing so became engrossed.

Ghyllbeck's first BOB 1972


Success continued into the 80's with the

introduction of Large Munsterlanders.

Bitches Foxbrae Flora & Foxbrae Zennia were

successful during the breeds formative years

in the UK. Indeed, in 1983 Flora became the breeds

first Full Champion bitch after receiving her 3rd CC,

having already accumulated 8 F.T.Awards.



Championship show 1981


Both bitches proved influencial

to the breed by producing a number

of Full Champion offspring, including

2 Australian Champions and a New

Zealand Champion. By the mid 80's

the kennel decided it was important

to increase their gene pool.

As a result in 1986

Konny v d Langen Weide

was imported from Southern Germany,

a move which proved to be very successful.

Although only lightly shown herself,

Corrie is the most influential

LM bitch to be imported into the UK.

It has always been the Ghyllbeck belief that the two disciplines of showing and working are of equal

importance to maintain standards, consequently Ghyllbeck dogs have made an impact in the showring.
