New eShop  (ObedienceUK) 18/4/2018 15:19:4

I've changed the software that runs the eShop, so I believe you will find it much simpler to use. There is a FAQS (Frequently Asked Questions) link but I'll add more answers to questions if anyone finds a question that needs answering.

Cost of advertising is 2 by Paypal (or 3 by cheque) for a 30 day listing.

Adding pictures is a lot simpler in the new shop, and if you create an account you can manage (edit and delete) your ads. (Details in FAQS)

Does anyone know anything about Paulden BCs, good or bad. Have a friend who is going to look at some puppies and shes trying to find out about them first hand.

May I suggest that your friend checks the health testing status of the parents, grand parents etc via the MYKC or KC health test page. Any health tests such as HD, ED, clinical test & DNA test/inherited normal status are shown. & also the epilepsy database(this is a voluntary databade). All breeding dogs should be hip & elbow scored & clinically tested for PRA & either be DNA tested if one parent is a carrier for any genetic condition or from 2 normal parents.

Chris King  (cybicraft) 31/7/2018 17:55:53

I am afraid we have just heard that Chris King has lost her battle with motor neurone the last message I had from her was wishing me luckj judging my first ticket I sent her a long message last week asking how she was and Woody and telling her about the ticket.She was so brave doing lots for our show in June we will miss you Chris x

Such sad news about Chris, and yes, we really will miss her. She kindly took over from me as Show Manager and has for the past few years done a wonderful job of running the shows. It was of course expected that her life expectancy would be cut short but we had no idea that it would be this soon and so unexpected. Sending condolences to her partner Roger.

Love Eunice xx  (eunice) 1/8/2018 9:23:53

So very sad.You will be missed.x  (brysue) 1/8/2018 9:35:14

I am saddened to hear Chris lost her battle with motor neurone disease.
We first met when I was judging beginners years ago at Slough. Chris and Woody were impressive and I knew she was going to do well.
As we know Chris soon became very involved with obedience, both with organisation judging and stewarding. She was always ready to help.
Last year Chris very bravely judged for us at NWK show.
As they say, it is always the good that die young.
Remembered fondly.   (cooky) 1/8/2018 11:4:31

Judging  (sandymay) 30/7/2018 12:40:57

Brian Reed here. As many of you will know, I have been refused permission by the KC to Judge Tickets until I can prove to them that I am fully qualified to do so. I have Judged Tickets in the past but that was longer than 5 years ago so they require me to provide proof that I am up to date with Judging as in am I still judging. I don't think that they keep records. I have been judging around 11 shows each year for the past 30 years and during the last 5 years not having a dog to work I have judged more than that. This year alone I have judged 3 Cs an A and have more to do. I have decided that I would like to Judge Tickets so can any club members who remember me judging for them over the past 6 years please email me at Perhaps somebody at the KC will pick up on this.
thank you

Van recommendations  (K9crumpet) 9/7/2018 21:7:27

Does anyone have any recommendations for a van that will fit 4 cages for border collies. Preferably with 3 seats in front or still having the back seats. Desperately need something soon but struggling. can't have anything too big so to be honest the smaller and more economical the better


Ford Transit do a few different sizes & they are about the most popular , but most vans are much the same  (dingdongcharlie) 10/7/2018 11:53:46

I have a Peugeot Expert (Fiat Scudo and Citroen Dispatch are the same) with six collie cages, I have five collies, and a bench front seat. This travels three people fine. I have had this particular van for ten years and it is my second, also tows my caravan and I have no complaints on the fuel consumption. Hope this helps.  (Woodlark) 28/7/2018 20:22:6

Just a reminder that we have re arranged our tickets from April to 23.9.18, running consequetivly with BAGSD . Entries close 5.8.18 . We have only received a few entries so far , so hopefully a great deal more will arrive soon.

Also polite notice , we have received a few entries with post dated cheques . Some even dated to the day of the show . Please do not post date your cheque as they require cashed prior to the show to allow us to run the show

We have taken a chance in re arranging these tickets , so hopefully it will all work out

Entries being received by post   (suesmutts) 23/7/2018 12:32:2

Silly query possibly, but if when the running orders are published and it only shows the first 10 dogs, and not all entries to that class, how does one know if ones entry has been received.

I do mine by post, so should I now get a certificate of posting? and if I do and my entry has got lost in the post will I be eligible to compete by paying my entry fee again once I turn up at the show.

I assume that if I turn up at a show assuming my form has been received (but hasn't) and I haven't got a certificate of posting then I assume I am unable to enter the show as I have no proof it has been sent.


I now always get Proof of Posting, just in case. I know that when it happened to me once, and the cheque had not been cleared, I did have PoP and went to the Secretaries tent and was added to the class list. I don't know if this still applies, that if you have Proof of Posting, that you will be allowed to be added, so I will be interested to see what comments the people in the know respond to this.  (Wizzpop) 23/7/2018 13:48:56

Sharon went to a show once , & her entry had not been received , & that was with " With Your Dog " she had the confirmation reply , & luckily Geraldine was at the show , so it was soon sorted  (dingdongcharlie) 23/7/2018 19:7:43

I always get proof of posting. You dont have to take it to the show with you, you fill in another entry form and pay again and you can then work your dog. If you get a place then its between you and the Kennel Club to sort out. Of course, if you check your bank statement, you will know if your cheque has been cashed so entry would have been received.   ( 23/7/2018 21:25:42

G regs 24(d)
Entries from competitors claiming that missing entries have been
correctly posted must be accepted on the day of the Show, subject to the conditions of Regulation G24.a. Such claims will have to be substantiated to the Kennel Club which will request documentary evidence, subsequent to the Show.

Proof of posting is free & worth getting for postal entries. Most secretaries will check for you.

NWKent Show report  (EileenRestell) 25/7/2018 10:20:43

NWKent Champ and Open shows

Well we have had some scorchers in the past but I think that the weekend exceeded anything that we have had before but somehow we got through it without a hitch.
Our thank yous will be like the Oscars as there are so many people that we just cant do without, from set up to break down and the days in between.
During the week of the show we discovered that we had less room available for campers due to the rugby club having recently being upgraded to a higher league which meant that no vehicles were allowed on the second pitch. Without Teresa Patterson, Gaynor Taylor, Linda Plows, Thelma Alexander, Malcolm Hanlon & Sean McCarthy we could never have managed to organise everyone so massive thanks to them all and hopefully you will do it again next year Teresa told me that everyone had complied with their orders with good grace other than the man who drove over the pitch to exit because he felt the rules did not apply to him, nor would he stop when Teresa tried to flag him down, we have your registration number, we will work out who you are and will refuse entries next year that rule was in force to ensure that we keep this venue.
We thank all our competitors for coping with the parking situation, it seems complicated on paper but with our team of parkers at both sides everyone was safely gathered in without giving anyone grief, I did suggest that Serenas husband wear his full battle dress and gun - lol
We had our own boy band bromance going on there lol, Stuart Calway, Jason Hibberd, Roy Williams, Peter Gregory, all commandeered from club, only 2 compete but all 4 are now expert at putting up the rings and having you there at the close of play to shift, load, unload and stack in the container is priceless-I hope that you enjoyed yours beers guys.
Thanks as per usual to our CSS Rod White every year he requests cool conditions, but we only get them with rain! Only one bit of bother for you and I am glad that we did manage to muster up stay stewards for you once everyone knew where you were in your outpost 😊 Shame on those that were asked but couldnt give a valid reason why they could/would not do at least one set when Georgie went round with the book in the morning, thank you to those that did help.
CS Sandra Cobbold, with you on board our ship sails smoothly, thank you so much and same place next year please.
Thank you to our judges & stewards, this year was a little testing as we lost a couple as soon as the schedule was issued, dont ask ☹ Then we had the accident prone ladies 3 who are hopefully on the mend. And one who had no transport! So huge thank you to those judges who agreed to step in and save the days. It is sad that this year we were without two stalwarts of shows in the SE, Barry Fitter & John Rogers, both poorly but hopefully better health is on its way to you both, I cant remember a time when you were not at one of our shows. We missed you.
Well done to our ticket winners, both travelling from afar to take the prize: Guus Scholten & Dominique Guenther good luck at Crufts. Thank you to Pat Burford, I hope that you enjoyed your first ticket appointment and to Jenny Gould for taking over from John Taylor who sadly had to withdraw from judging.
Our own team, from admin to poo sack collector, you all worked tirelessly from Friday to Sunday but we all had some laughs, no tears hooray and so we were rewarded with a sack load of rosettes between us including 5 first places interesting that and note worthy to those who think that putting something back to shows interferes with winning it doesnt, thats a fact.
We are grateful to the rugby club for allowing us to hold the show, they have recently been upgraded in their league hence the number 2 pitch not allowing vehicles on it. I am pleased to say that catering was much improved this year and received no grumbles about this.
Thank you Kirsty Stuart for manning the training ring for a while on Sunday, I think that it was way to hot for many customers this year. Jenny Harknets Charity fun class raised 90 for African Wild Dogs, again and our tombola raised 185 which we have shared with German Shepherd Elite Rescue and The Border Collie Spot.

We hope to see many of you again: 27th & 28th July 19

Carmarthen My surprise  (Blacksheep) 10/7/2018 16:30:48

A wonderful Surprise happened to me at Carmarthen Show recently.

Im a small part of the army of volunteers who all enjoy nothing more than organising and co-ordinating fur filled weekends at Obedience Shows across the land.

We happily while away our time organising caterers, vendors, car/caravan parking, collating show applications, balancing the fees, cajoling potential judges, judging and ring stewarding our selves, booking venues and checking local bye laws, encouraging Ring and scoreboard stewards and so so much more and all with a smile!!!!!!!!!!!

The ultimate aim we all know, is to perpetuate canine utopia where our dogs can demonstrate their abilities and hope their handlers can actually handle the pressure without a wrong turn, miss throw, trip up or howler of howlers work the wrong class or miss the running order.

What fun we all have, knowing what it takes to keep our beautiful amateur sport bounding along and ever growing to reaching more competitors and their handlers.

Utopia Where everything is perfect.

Carmarthen. Where I had a personal moment
In front of my friends and peers who, to my utter delight, presented me with a Heart of Gold award in recognition of my contribution to Obedience.
I was speechless and unable to share my gratitude and pleasure to everyone, other than a cheessey grin and spluttered words of inadequate thanks.

My appreciation for this award is limitless and sincere. Everyone that contributes in anyway will appreciate the fun and anguish in setting up and the relief at the smoothness of the numerous shows we all support.

I realise how lucky I am to be recognised for my effort. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone involved in this enormously pleasant surprise.

Im still trying to conjure the words to describe my Joy!!

Which is funny really, as Im normally at the front of the queue, when it comes to speaking my mind.................


Sounds richly deserved. Well done   (puppies) 11/7/2018 8:56:54

Spalding & District Open Show - 15.07.18  (Debbax) 17/7/2018 1:12:31

Another Show over and it can be described in many words but the one that springs to mind is - HOT. Luckily our venue is lined with big, aged trees so there was plenty of room to park in the shade.

Thanks must go to Val and our very small committee for rallying around and doing the catering for Judges & Helpers; another success and the sausage pie went down a storm! We had a slight hitch with the competitor catering when we found out (at 9.30) that they couldn't supply any drinks..... In true 'Spalding style' and thanks to a mercy dash to the co-op for emergency supplies of tea, coffee, water etc I think everyone kept hydrated.

Thanks to the Judges, Stewards and score-boarders for gently roasting in the rings - much appreciated by all :)

Vince did a sterling job as Chief Stay Steward, thanks to all that volunteered for a class, especially his two full time helpers of Alison and Beath (a remarkable lady who we could all learn from).

Thanks to the ring erectors on Sunday Morning, done in record time with just 5 of us.

One small gripe, it is not nice to let your dogs pee up the poo bags or posts; ring posts included (!?!) someone has to pick them up and put them away.

Congratulations to two members of Dot's pet class, Karen and Kayleigh for getting placed in Prebeginners; to Ted for his place in B and to Dot herself for winning her last A with Keepa.

Lastly, many thanks to the competitors for all the lovely comments both on the day and through social media. They are much appreciated.

Left at the show, 1 pair of sunglasses and 1 dumbbell

Next year's date is Sunday 21st July. If you feel like offering to Judge for us, please let me know.

Jane Prince has worked with Gerard for a couple of years, at Crufts 2018 she joined him both on Rally day and the Inter-Regional Obedience on Friday. I am very pleased to announce that Jane has agreed to continue with both competitions and will again be supporting Gerard in 2019 and taking over from 2020 onwards.
I am also delighted to announce that Sue Slater has agreed to take over the role for Championship Days. Sue will work alongside Gerard next year and will be going solo in 2020.
I am sure that everyone will join me in thanking Gerard for all he has done since taking over the commentary all those years ago, and also in wishing Jane and Sue the very best for their new roles.

The schedule and ticket latest info isnt the same as to who is judging which champ class ?

Whats the problem?  (ObedienceUK) 10/7/2018 8:33:51

Carole Patrick is judging Dogs and Joan Jordan judging Bitches. That's what the schedule on ObedienceUK says Jenny. Am I missing something? Roy  (roypage) 10/7/2018 11:39:8

Wnchester City DTC, Championship Show  (breeze) 9/7/2018 7:28:23

Thank you
Well it was certainly hot! We must say a huge thank you to all judges, stewards, club members and helpers who worked to make the show run so smoothly. A number of competitors elected not to attend but those who did hopefully had an enjoyable day. We did our best to ensure the dogs were kept as comfortable as possible, making as much use of the shade as we could. Especially for stays.
We must make a special mention to all those club members who are there at 6am to set up rings etc, all by 7.30! How would we manage without you.
Judges were sensible and set a test to cope with the heat and stay times were adjusted accordingly.
Congratulations to all class winners, and good luck at Crufts to ticket Winners Mary Ray and Bronwen Bartley.
Hopefully everyone had an uneventful journey home and we look forward to see you next year on Sunday 14 July.
WCDTC Committee

NWKent DTC Champ & Open shows change of judges:

Pre Beginner D&B on Saturday will now be judged by Julie Daly a replacement for Kim Ford who has a broken wrist so a little difficult to hold clipboard and pen!
B Dog Part 2 Melinda Partner is replaced by Juliette Bloomfield as Min is now judging YKC on Sunday
Beginner D&B on Sunday Allison Barrell has kindly agreed to judge in place of Donna Bastin we really hope that Donna is back on both feet soon, she has suffered enough!
YKC classes Jane Wood has broken bones in her foot ☹ but Min Partner kindly offered to swap from judging on Saturday to this class much appreciated Min.
We hope that our walking wounded are all on the road to recovery and thank those that have stepped to cover, including stewards, and have saved us a great deal of stress.

Catalogues and running orders  (jessica) 6/7/2018 13:19:58

Is anyone else finding the lack of a catalogue means you are losing track of who is who and has which dog. My interest is waning in obedience due to lack of information. A possible solution would be if the full running orders could be published in the format of Winchester and Andover. These give you the classes the dog is drawn in, but also the name of the owner and the breed of the dog. I can then print and take to the show where if I see a nice dog or super round I can look up who it is! It also helps the judge, anything to assist them must be good. What do you think?

Winchester Show - reminder on parking  (dmoxon) 5/7/2018 11:23:48

WCDTC Sunday 8thJuly We look forward to welcoming judges, officials, and competitors this Sunday to our usual venue at Botley. Please may I remind you there is strictly no overnight camping on the venue. Also, on the day, no caravans please or other towed vehicles. We unfortunately cannot allow these on the venue. Camper vans are welcome but parking will not allow for gardens. If you wish to be parked next to friends, please try to arrive with them before entering the venue. Usual signposting will ask you to put your hazard lights on if you have a tent for the rear of your car. Our parking team do an excellent job, and this enables us to get the most out of our venue, including a good exercise area for all dogs. The weather is forecast to be sunny so please help us, so that everyone will have an enjoyable day.
