JUDGES AT CRUFTS 2023

 


Judge - Lou Jackson


(Dog & Bitch Championships)

It is such a priviledge to be writing this profile as the Crufts 2023 Obedience Championships Judge. An honour which I still can't quite believe is happening to me. Many thanks to The Kennel Club for entrusting this great occasion to me and my team. 

I live in Staffordshire with my long suffering husband of 49 years, John, and a menagerie of animals on our little smallholding. Our lives have always been focussed on our animals and their health and happiness. In my spare time I have run my hairdressing business since 1977 ! 

I began dog training by necessity in the late 70's when we had our first dog after getting married, a very headstrong Labrador called Rusty. Shortly afterwards a little collie cross called Pepe followed and in the early 80's I went to Earls Court to watch Crufts, and I was hooked! Now 40 years later, many hours training, many lovely dogs, many many miles travelled , many friendships made, here we are! 

Since those early beginnings I've qualified four dogs for ticket our greatest achievement being with my lovely Alice (Ob.Ch. Foldans Alice Springs) winning the bitch Championships in 2002 under Ian Watts. I currently only work one dog, Mango, (Deltamadog Victory) having retired my beautiful Tipple this season. 

My thanks go to my wonderful team of friends who have helped me so much with all the planning and have been such a great support, I couldn't have done this without them. 

I wish all the competitors a very happy day, they are all winners already. Our thoughts will be with Robin Arblasters family, a sad day for them, I'm sure he'll be looking down on us all.

Judge - Margaret Harvey

 

(Inter Regionals - Obedience)

 

A huge thank you to the Kennel Club for the invitation to judge this competition. I would also like to thank Richard Kebble and Kate McCartney for their help and advice. I have been a spectator at Crufts many times, but never thought I would be the judge. I consider it a great honour and I am looking forward to the day. 

I cannot believe I am saying this but it is over fifty years since I joined my first dog-training club and I am still a member today. St Mary's Dog Training Society is an amazing club, in fact, it is more like a big family, and everyone looks out for each other and is always there to give a helping hand if things go wrong, no matter what life throws at us. In all of the years I have been a member, I have not missed many training nights. The only time was many years ago when we had our second baby Paul, a brother for Kevin. At this time, my husband Albert took over training my golden retriever Lisa. In those few weeks, Albert was hooked and so along came his dog, a daughter of Lisa called Anna. As time went by Albert became one of the trainers and was a valued member of the club. He helped me with my dogs, and he helped numerous people with theirs. Sadly, Albert passed away in 2014 and was obviously a huge loss to our family, and myself but also a big loss to our club. 

Over the years, I have had some fabulous dogs, a golden retriever, sheltie, Groenendael collie and six border collies. Albert also had two golden retrievers and four collies (so no shortage of cuddles or pats). 

Our love of dogs continues through our family - Kevin and Michelle and their family, Jack, Harry & Grace have two collies - Bella and Molly. Paul, Alison, and their family, James and Abbie have a Shih Tzu called Jessie. 

I have had a varied amount of success with my dogs. Five of my collies have qualified and worked Ch C, three winning tickets. My most successful dog was Amy - OB Ch Megglenans Teasel who won eleven tickets and twenty-two reserves as well as sixty Open C's. My dear friend, the late, Deborah Boyle, bred Amy. Amy appeared at Crufts five times and was Best Ob Bitch five years in a row (which, at the time, I believe was a record). 

I only have two collies at the moment; Isla and Millie, having recently said goodbye to our beautiful Ziggy, who was almost sixteen years. My young dog Millie is only on the first rung of the ladder with a long way to go, but she is making good progress and I am pleased with the way she is developing. 

My first judging appointment was in 1972 followed by all classes until the year 2000 when I judged my first Ch C Class. 

I have judged in many places including Holland, Ireland and the Isle of Man. I also judged the semi-finals KC Special Pre Beginners in 2016, which took place in Scotland. Thanks to Eileen Lyons for stewarding and keeping the competitors calm and ready to work. 

There were some super dogs and it was good to see some different breeds taking part. During all this time travelling, Eileen has been with me, we have judged and competed with our dogs and travelled together for more years than I care to remember. Thanks Eileen for all the coffees, bacon sandwiches and hot cross buns, but also all the chat that makes the long journeys go so quickly. 

My team are members of St Mary's DTS, including Neil and Lorraine, Eileen, Hazel, Angie, Judith, Liz, Pauline, Cris, Anne and my two granddaughters - Grace and Abbie. The two young ones will collect the scores after each exercise. Thanks everyone for your time and patience. 

Finally, I would like to congratulate you all on securing a place on your team and representing your area. I will be looking for dogs and handlers working as a team with enthusiasm and accuracy, so enjoy the experience of working your dog on the famous green carpet in the Big ring. 

The best of luck to you all on the day. I hope you will take some great memories home with you and remember whatever happens; you always take the best dog home. 

Your Judge - Margaret Harvey.

(Inter Regionals - Rally)

 

No, I almost said no. When I was telephoned back in 2020, the first answer that came to mind was, "NO". Having been a part of two ring parties I had seen the amount of organising and equipment, and so forth, that was required. I didn't think I would want all that. When the question actually came there was a pause and ........ the word YES fell from my mouth. Oh well, I've always found no to be a hard word. So how did I end up in this position? I have been around dogs all my life and our poor springer spaniel had to put up with my attempts to train him to walk to heel, after watching the Obedience at Crufts, on TV. From the age of about 11 I wanted to compete in Obedience. I got into dog training, seriously, when looking after a friend's labrador, whilst she attended university. It was around about 1992 when I joined Banbury and District Dog Training Society, in order to train this lunatic of a dog, and met Carla Nieuwenhuizen. I cannot thank her too much. I learned so much about reward based training and how to embrace new ideas and mould them into existing methods. My first Collie was a rescue called Chassis. I started my competitive "career" with her, first in club competitions and a couple of working trials. Carla, you started me on my road to Crufts, giving me confidence to pass on my knowledge and run classes and teach. 

My heart still lay with obedience though. I did rescue another collie called Sam, he had problems and it was a fellow club member Jane Webb who introduced me to Philomena Barnes, a very experienced collie person who ran Obedience training days. I joined her group and whilst Sam was not to be a competitive boy I got Solly in 2002 and my dream came true. Phil, you are an amazing teacher, without you I would not be judging at Crufts this year. Thank you for sharing your skills and giving me my dream of competing at the top. Solly and I reached ticket level competition, gaining a reserve ticket when she was 8 years old. I also qualified as a judge because I feel I should give something back to a sport in which I compete. My life changed and I couldn't really put in the time needed for training but by this time I had been introduced to the new sport of Rally Obedience. 

Carla (Banbury and District DTS) had information that there was a local workshop about this new sport. A couple of us attended and really enjoyed the day. We started to teach this as part of the curriculum of the club, eventually building in specific evening classes and running inter club fun competitions. We had already hosted a couple of whole day competitions when the Kennel Club adopted the sport and the club started running two day shows. As with obedience I qualified as a judge and have judged at many competitions over the years. All three of my now collies at the time, Solly, Boycey and Smokie qualified to level 6, and probably level 6 excellent, but I never actually applied to the Kennel Club for the official notification. I got to compete at Crufts with Smokie, being part of the Welsh Rally team at the inaugural Inter Regional competition. I feel incredibly privileged to be part of a sport which enables so many personal abilities and breeds of dogs to compete on a level playing field, and now I get to judge at Crufts. Wow - yes it has been a lot of brain ache and organising but it has been worth it. Thank you to all who have been part of dog life up until now and let me introduce you to my team for the big day: 

My scribe: - Celia Carlill. My very good friend who, having never competed, apart from an hilarious fun class with my dog, has been my steward for obedience and my trusty scribe in many a Rally class. 

Collecting Ring:- Kathleen Stubbings. Kathleen and I got to know each other when she also moved to Wales. Kathleen runs her own dog training classes and teaches HTM. 

Chief Course Builder:- Alistair Kirk. My stepson who, after having one of Solly's pups got into Flyball in a big way. However he is now a professional dog trainer having qualified with the IMDT. 

Assistant Course Builder:- Cathy Imlach. I got to know Cathy via Kathleen. She is a very competent dog handler who has impressed me with her abilities. I would love to see her compete in Rally and this could be a baptism of fire. 

Score Board: - Joanne Syson. I have known Joanne since my days at Banbury. Joanne has competed at the top of Rally with her dogs, and beaten me. She has also qualified as a judge and is a very experienced score board organiser. 

Timekeeper:- Michelle Jones. Another good friend from Banbury. Michelle too, has competed in the world of Rally with her dogs for as long as Rally has been going. She has stepped into this role when my original time keeper had to drop out for health reasons - thank you so much Michelle.

(KCGCDS Special Pre Beginner Obedience Stakes Final)

Firstly, I would just like to thank Heidi Lawrence and the Kennel Club for the invitation to judge this Special Pre Beginner and the YKC Special Pre beginner Stakes Finals at Crufts 2023. I am thoroughly looking forward to both days and hope all of the competitors will enjoy my round. 

My Obedience hobby started out of necessity rather than anything else, as I needed my first dog to be a well behaved pet. Joining a registered Kennel Club dog training club set the tone for the next 35 years of owning many different dogs, training my own and others, competing, Judging, stewarding, and taking on the odd scoreboard duties, all at Obedience competitions. I must admit I would do it all again, given the chance. I've also trained agility but my first love has always been Obedience! 

My Obedience judging has spanned many years covering all classes from Pre beginners to the Championship classes and also was lucky enough to judge in Holland and was also invited to judge the semi finals of this competition at Discover Dogs a few years ago. All the different levels require different skills in organising and planning, so it is a fair and balanced test but also challenging to all teams. I believe I have done just that with all the different exercises set for you all. It goes without saying that Stewards are a very important part of that process. I am very fortunate to have Lynne Darby, and Sarah Squires to carry out those duties. We are all very much looking forward to this appointment and are getting more excited as the day draws closer. 

I have owned and loved many dogs over the years and all have been special and very different in their own way. As far as Obedience is concerned I have learnt and had many successes from working a Large Munsterlander in Beginners up to having 3 Ticket dogs with one becoming an Obedience Champion!!!!! I am now working 3 Collies, all with different temperaments and abilities. Two are in "B" and a youngster who is not in the ring as yet! I have been lucky enough to work 2 dogs at the Crufts Championships and also worked C in the Inter regionals and was very fortunate to help choose the team on many occasions. 

Obedience has now taken a turn, whereby the early hour starts to get to a show have well and truly gone and has been replaced by my bed coming with me inside a caravan, LOL! It's certainly added a new dimension to this fabulous hobby! 

OK, so thats me where dogs are concerned, 30 odd years written down in a few lines. How do people write memoirs!!!! Lol Those competing, have a fabulous time. We certainly will! Enjoy 

Steve

(Obreedience)

I am thrilled to have been invited to judge the Obreedience final at Crufts - a Competition that I have become very passionate about right from its inception.

I've always lived with dogs having been born into a family of dog lovers. When I was 8, my Mum attended the local Kennel Club Registered Dog Training Club (Solihull DTC), with a rescue Labrador she had recently taken on, and I was allowed to go along too - but only in the school holiday as it was a late night finish. By the time I was 11, my Mum was competing in 'Obedience', and for passing my 11 plus, I was given a young collie cross of my own to train. Fern was another rescue dog and she and I also competed in Obedience - badly I might add. Over the years, my Mum became an Obedience judge and I used to steward for her and I helped to run the clubs' Obedience shows, but I didn't compete again until I was in my 40's. By that time, Solihull DTC was successfully running the Kennel Club's Good Citizen Dog Training Scheme and I had been invited to join it's Working Party at the KC. The KC's GCDTS Special Pre Beginner Obedience Stakes class is what reignited my interest in competition Obedience and I currently compete with 5 dogs - 3 collies and 2 Working Cockers.

It was 2 of the KC staff - Heidi Lawrence from the GCDTS and Debbie Deuchar from 'Activities' that came up with the idea of 'Obreedience' to encourage owners of breeds not usually associated with competition Obedience to have a go at training and competing in that discipline. Obreedience was initially only run as a display competition at Crufts in 2014 and 2015, featuring invited teams only. Due to my involvement as a Commentator at Crufts in both the GCDTS ring and the Obedience ring, I was invited to commentate Obreedience at those display competitions. I attended the practice session in the run up to Crufts to get a better idea of how the competition would run, and found myself feeling very emotional at seeing 4 dogs of the same breed walking to heel in unison - there is something very magical about that.

Obreedience didn't become an open competition until heats took place in 2015 in preparation for Crufts 2016, and I was invited to judge the very 1st heat held at Forest Oak. I have gone on to judge several heats since then of course. In 2016 I formed my own team - a team of Border Collies called 'Border Delights' which managed to qualify for the 2017 Crufts final. I was invited to join a Cocker Spaniel Team in 2018 and 'Covert Cockups' not only qualified for the Crufts final in 2019, but also went on to win it. We qualified again for the final in 2020 - where unfortunately my dog Ruby, managed a right royal 'Cock up'!

All I can say is - it's not as easy as it looks - particularly the team heelwork and I hope that this year's final inspires others to have a go at what is a very friendly competition.

I know this year's finalists have thoroughly enjoyed competing at the heats over the last 12 months and have also been very supportive of each other. I hope that all the teams that have qualified for the Crufts 2023 Obreedience final have the very best of days.
