Photos & Pedigrees

  • Has your Bullmastiff won a Challenge Certificate at a UK Champ show during 2023?
  • If so you are invited to submit a 3 generation pedigree and a printable quality photo of the dog for inclusion in our CC show winners section of the next Year book (this is free of charge).
  • Please note to keep the subject more prominent on the page the photo should ideally be mainly of just the dog in a standing position (head shots are accepted too). The image may be cropped (showing just the handlers legs standing with the dog) this is to fit the page dimensions. (You should also have full copyright permission from the photographer to use the photo in the book).
  • The club will attempt to contact all 2023 CC winners for inclusion in the book, if you have not been contacted by mid December after the last show of the year (LKA) please contact Year Book Editor Cath Lewis.


To advertise in the book

  • Celebrate your dog's success, whether they are Champion Show Dogs, Agility / Obedience / Rally triers or specialists, KC Good Citizens or simply your beloved family member. Share him or her with the rest of the Bullmastiff world.
  • Advertise a planned litter.
  • Your dog doesn't have to be a top winning show dog to have a page dedicated to them, celebrate your golden oldie or your new puppy.
  • Your furry friend does not have to be in a perfect show stance either, natural shots and head shots work well too.
  • Advertise your dog related business or services.
  • Adverts should ideally be sent as the finished design (print ready), the correct size and saved as a high quality or "print ready" PDF or .jpg.
