JUDGES AT CRUFTS 2022

 


Judge - Pat Watson

Pat Watson

(Dog & Bitch Championships)

I am so excited, where do I begin? I would like to thank the Kennel Club for inviting me to judge the Obedience Championships at Crufts, what an honour indeed!

Another big thank you to my team joining me this year, they have been incredibly supportive, it is truly a team effort to bring this round to the ‘green carpet’. We were planning our practice sessions in 2020 when the global pandemic struck and turned all our lives upside down. It has been a difficult time for everyone, I would particularly like to extend a huge thank you to all the hard working show secretaries and show managers who have worked together to ensure that our shows and Crufts qualifying classes were held.

I better not forget Herbie, my husband (he would never forgive me), for his help and support over the last 25 years, not least the amount of miles he has driven. 

My involvement with dogs started as a young child when I had a collie called Duke who came into my life on the 25th of December 1959, this was simply the best Christmas present ever and nothing has topped that since. 

I didn’t start my obedience journey until 1982, when I joined Bristol Dog Training Club. I had taken on a rescue GSD called Sinbad who was proving to be a very difficult dog and I needed help. It was here that I met Anne Gay who became my best and lifelong friend. We very sadly lost Anne in 2021 and I am still learning to live with hole she left. Anne was my rock, my sister, my go to for the little things and the big things that life throws at you. Anne always helped me chose my Crufts outfit so something that should have been enjoyable has been difficult and I have driven everyone mad changing my mind.

In 1983 I started competing, and at Newton Abbot show Sinbad won both beginners and novice, that was it, I was hooked. I drove home to Bristol singing ‘we are the champions’ and planning where we would go next.

Sonny and Sylvia’s partnership was a big influence on me as well as watching Herbie with his boy OB CH Deangarry Drummer (Jimmy). So, In 1984 when I bred my first Forevermagic litter from my foundation girlie Bess - Guyanel Solo it was Sonny - Ob CH Magic Sunday I used. 

From that litter I kept a girl, Jess. What an exceptional girlie! Winning her first novice at 6 months and winning her B’s at 10 months. She was my first dog to qualify for the obedience championships at Crufts in 1990  by winning the ticket under Peter Lubbi.

Jess went again in 1991 along with Bess (her mum) and Tag.

I have, to date, taken 11 dogs to Crufts and made up 8 champions. I have also bred 7 other champions. My current working dogs are Mikki - Jodame Extra Special, who is working ticket and my up-and-coming youngster Focus - Colliewood Connect, who will be making her debut in the ring this year.

I am looking forward to judging this year’s championship, in each team I want to see commitment and a strong partnership between the dog and handler.

I wish all the competitor’s the best of luck and above all I hope they enjoy their day. Crufts is a challenging environment for both us as handlers and our dogs, if your day doesn’t go as planned, don’t worry about it, you are all stars in my eyes for qualifying, your dogs even more so

(Inter Regionals - Obedience)

 

Judging at Crufts 2022- how did I get here? I’d accepted my invite to judge for 2024 and so I had plenty of time to plan for this special event. That was until Richard Kebble rang me at Christmas time to see if I could step in for 2022 as Jessica had to step down for family health reasons.

It has long been my ambition to judge at Crufts, this means more to me than any other dog show, Lynn and I even spent day one of our honeymoon as she was competing there with Ob Ch Dawn Lass (Kayleigh).

I have been in obedience over 50 years and I’ve had the privilege of sharing my home with some fabulous dogs. German Shepherds were my first love, followed by Belgian shepherds and a couple of collies even made it over the threshold!!!

My first German Shepherd, Sheba, got me into training obedience and I attended what was then called the City of Birmingham and District Alsatian Association at Tile Green, Birmingham. My second German Shepherd dog called Ranger also attended classes there and together we learnt so much. Ted as he was affectionally known, was a dog that would have done anything for me. He was the most loyal companion anyone could wish for.

Although it was the dogs that got me into training it was the ticket handlers that attended the dog club that triggered the want in me to start officiating in various capacities at the shows. They would ask me to call them a round or check that their dog sat straight or call the DC commands. The first class I stewarded was “Test B”, for Alan Fretter at Wirral Alsatian Association in the good old days of Len Moore, Mike White and others. It was an indoor show and the rings were separated by wicket fencing. I shall always remember this show with great affection because of the “night life” after the show and the great camaraderie of the competitors

I am still thoroughly enjoying officiating 50 plus years later. Whether its organising shows, stewarding, judging or acting as Chief Steward, it’s something I love doing. I have awarded KC Challenge Certificates for over 35 years, judged the Green Star for the Irish Kennel Club on four occasions and have had the honour of judging numerous classes for the Dutch Obedience Society.

I have seen a lot of the United Kingdom, made a lot of good friends, met some great acquaintances, therefore I know I made the right decision to concentrate on officiating instead of competing.

For the last 30 years I’ve had the pleasure of training with my wife Lynn and our amazing dogs. My observational skills have developed more because of Freya Ob Ch Hawksflight Fantasia and her daughter, Enya and our “Mali” Ziva.

When you watch dogs of this calibre daily, it keeps your eyes finely tuned for judging. I believe I owe an awful lot to them but Lynn says were a great team and complement each other.

A BIG/HUGE THANKYOU to my team Lynn Luckock and Sally Collins - Calling/Scribe, Kath Hood -Scoreboard, Jane Hedges and Alison Hamilton - Collecting Ring and Peter Height – Scent Decoy for the time that they have given to help me in today’s task.

The tests that I have set for each of the classes, I have thought long and hard about and tried out with several different breeds of dog and levels of handlers. Thank you to Anne, Janet, Louise, Lynn, Paula, Sally, Shirley, Sue and their great dogs who have carried out the exercises set with ease.

A final word to the teams, I am thoroughly looking forward to judging all the different varieties of dogs and would wish you all the luck for the day and in future events over the coming years.

(Obreedience)

I feel really honoured to be invited to judge the Obreedience competition at Crufts as I love to see different breeds being encouraged to do obedience and show off their skills.

When I was born, my parents had 13 dogs as my Mum bred and showed Dachshunds as well as having a Great Dane. My Dad also worked one of Wilf Chadwick’s GSDs in Obedience and Working Trials even winning an Obedience Ticket at one point (though Wilf worked the dog at Crufts). As a baby I spent a lot of time at various dog shows and I even have a framed picture of me as a baby sitting next to Muriel Pearce’s famous multiple Crufts Obedience Championships winner Megan of Monksfield with a trophy she had just won between us with me gazing at her in awe.

However I didn’t really get into training dogs until my late twenties when I started in Agility with my Groenendael and my Mum’s GSD, Border Collie and Toy poodle. I competed at both Crufts and Olympia in agility before falling in love with obedience and starting to concentrate on that with my Groenendaels. I have competed 11 times at Crufts with my Groenendaels. I have competed 7 times in the Obedience Championships with OB CH Vanistica Gideons Moon (3rd in 1995) and Ob Ch Vanistica French Eclipse (6th in 2007). I have also been lucky enough to compete 3 times in the Inter Regional Team Obedience with the my 2 Champions on their way to Ticket and with a third Groenendael  Vanistica Gullivers Travels. I also had the fantastic experience of competing in the Crufts World Cup competition as part of the winning England World Cup team in 2009 with Ob Ch Vanistica French Eclipse.

For the last 5 years I have also been one of the Assistant Managers for the South East and East Anglia Inter Regional team.

I have been judging obedience classes since 1994 and started judging Championship classes in 2007. I have not judged an Obreedience competition before but have enjoyed watching the competition at Crufts and at various shows. It is a joy to see the different  breeds strutting their stuff in the synchronised heelwork and then each doing a different set exercise. I have always loved competing in the teams at Crufts so hopefully the teams in this year’s competition will have great fun and enjoy their day as much as I have done in the past. Good luck to all the teams competing.
