New - Directory of Competitive Obedience Training  (ObedienceUK) 26/3/2023 9:43:58

I've been giving some thought into providing a Directory for Clubs / Organisation offering some Obedience training.

I've put together a Wordpress site called Directory for Competitive Obedience Training (snappy title).

It's starting from fresh, but hopeful could be up and running quite quickly if people could add their details to the Directory.

I've linked it into the ObedienceUK website if you choose menu item Training > Directory of Clubs/Organisations.

I'm thinking all KC Registered Clubs plus anyone else offering 1-to-1 training, or group training. Any thoughts appreciated.

Traveling to PETERSFIELD 4th June 2023  (Whyso) 31/5/2023 14:38:38

Post copied from ObedienceUK Facebook by Rhiannon Mulrenan

Petersfield show this Sunday - for those normally travelling from the east on A272... It is highly likely that Midhurst town centre is still closed to traffic, following a fire some time ago. There is apparently a diversion signposted, but the one time I tried to follow it, it seemed to disappear after the first sign... And please be aware that the roads are narrow and windy!
If it won't add that much to your journey, I would suggest using the A27 to Chichester, and heading to Midhurst from there - the road and roundabout to take you back on to the A272 towards Petersfield is open in that direction.
I'm no expert at directions, so please do your own investigations if you want to find alternative routes etc!

Having lost most marks on this section of the test in our first ever competition, would someone tell me exactly what is the judge looking for when you play with your dog. Think mine was a little over enthusiastic with the tuggy.

I think we all vary with what we look for. Myself, I just want to see engagement with your dog and both enjoying themselves. If you lose a lot at your next show, ask the judge why and they should explain it to you. God luck at your next show   ( 28/5/2023 8:41:19

Loughborough Show  (robz) 26/5/2023 12:40:56

I would like to thank everyone involved in our show from helping to set up, to judging and stewarding, scent decoys and taking down again which meant we had a good successful show. Thank you competitors for not keeping judges hanging about, most of them saying they were not kept waiting. Even the Kennel Club visitor went away happy. So thank you to Tony, Delia, Jill, Jacki and Cheryl club members and Cheryls son Brett and husband also called Brett who helped pack away Sunday evening also Lyn and Mick Tozer who came to help set up. Thank you to Janet Beverley for keeping Sue Garners ticket table in order, I hope you enjoyed doing it? To all the decoy stewards and to Annegret who judged the Beginner class on Sunday when Caroline Johnson was ill hope you are feeling better Caroline. To Rosie Colwood who made a special journey to steward for Jessica Lewis taking the place of Annegret. We held an Obreedience class this year and had seven teams enter but only six competed, thank you Lesley Deegan for judging that class and Linda Wild for stewarding.
To the ticket winners and all winning people congratulations( I will be putting full results on Obedience UK but having acquired a new puppy yesterday called Essie I have to fit this in) The special class went down well with money going to Spencers Retreat, I think dogs and handlers enjoyed, thank you Dawn for a lot of thought and the entertainment. We had some doggy items donated by Sheila Spencer in memory of Paul (her late husband) the money also going to Spencers Retreat which was a coincidence.
All in all we had good weather a happy crowd of people and a good show which I am glad is now out of the way for another year. Scent cloths washed by Delia have been counted and bagged and put away ready for next year thank goodness. If any of you reading this would like to volunteer for next year please feel free to contact me.

pet insurance  (wildl) 25/5/2023 8:38:43

I would appreciate peoples thoughts on Tesco Pet Insurance please

Fine. You get what you pay for. Watch whether limit is per condition so doesnt renew year on year, so if you have an ongoing problem once the limit is reached thats it. Expect premiums and excesses to jump year on year.   (sandras) 25/5/2023 8:57:13

We were with Tesco for years and had no problems when Ceri needed heart medication. We have since changed to John Lewis and cannot fault them, within two weeks of losing Alfie everything was paid I didn't have to do anything, even paid towards cremation and purchase price. Will use them for my new puppy definitely.  (robz) 25/5/2023 9:53:11

Having taken advice from the Kennel Club I have amended the schedule to show the closing date as 14th June (the date shown on the entry form) so both read the same.

Wirral shows 13/14 May 2023  (dellkos) 17/5/2023 14:20:26

Well, where do I begin?
Well, the weather was good apart from a couple of hours on Sunday. It was sunny and not windy as well! The show ran smoothly, with no hiccups, give or take a couple of judges and stewardsThank you to those who stepped in at the last minute to judge and steward. I hope everyone officiating enjoyed their day.
This was the first time in years that all of us (both club members and family) were not totally tired at the end of the weekend. This was because quite a few people, both judges and competitors, listened to our plea and helped us set up from roping up the rings, taking tables out to clearing the rings and bringing rings in at the end of the two days competition. This made a considerable difference. Thank you so much for doing this for us. (Booking you all again next year!) Also, thank you for leaving the field in such good condition.
Congratulations to our Ticket Winners, Shirley Clowes, and Kathy Russell. Good luck at Crufts 2024.
Next year due to the availability of the venue, we will be moving to the bank holiday weekend at the end of May 2024, and subject to K.C. Approval the CC Classes will be held on Sunday 26th May 2023.
Once again, thank you all for a great weekend.

Please can anyone help? I'm down to do a C on Saturday for Wirral. However the check engine light has come on four times this week and the garage can't get to the bottom of it. The worst thing is I can't tell when the fault will show up, which is bloody scary when you're over taking a lorry at 60pmh and suddenly the power goes. The thought of the M62 is freaking me out Trying it on a dignostic tool tomorrow but I cant the risk of not getting cover for Nicki on Saturday. Please, is there anyone who can at least be in standby for me?

Sad news .. Alan Lumley  (puppies) 12/5/2023 8:37:26

from: Alex Newton
My grandad Alan Lumley (Gateshead) passed last Friday. As you can imagine me and my family are devastated as he was a fantastic man. He was in the obedience circle for a long time and judged The kennel club obedience champions in 1991. He was also a chairman for the Tyne tees dog trainers. I know he competed in 1976 and another year which we arent certain on. This was with his dog Tevis border Jake.

His Funeral will be held on Thursday the 25th May at South Shields crematorium @ 1:15pm we will then be heading to bill quay cricket club to celebrate my Grandads life

CHESVALE DTC, SHOW MANAGERS REPORT  (CarolS) 9/5/2023 17:20:30


The Chesvale Committee were adamant in making this show special as it is the Clubs 70th Anniversary. Therefore, everyone on arrival were presented with a pen and our judges and stewards were given gifts to mark how special this year is for the club. It was interesting that a few of the competitors were still using their pens from our 60th anniversary!

The Team arrived on Saturday afternoon in pouring rain, armed with grass blowers and mowers to ensure all the rings were clear of any lose grass clippings, setting up the rings and club house. They all turned up early on Sunday morning to assist with tent erection and generally working like little beavers all day to make such a wonderful day for everyone. Not only our members but also husbands mucked in with whatever needed doing and then staying to clear away at the end of the day. How lucky we were with the weather on show day, slightly misty in the morning but beautiful sunshine appeared later.

With twelve rings we were fortunate that we only had to find 2 stewards and I would like to thank Maggie Moran and Chris Skelly for giving up the opportunity to work their dogs to fill these positions. I had to find 6 people who could do sums and colouring in for the scoreboards and Chesvale members and friends of the club stepped in to cover these jobs, even though some had never done it before and then doing decoy steward duties!

We were incredibly lucky to have two sponsors for the show this year. JR Pet Product generously supplied prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places in each class. YuMove sponsored our beautiful rosettes, prize cards for all twelve classes and donated product subscription for the first three places in each class. So, an enormous thank you to JR Pet Products and YuMove for their support and generous donation, this makes an enormous difference to the show.

We had two training rings, one manned by Laura Wiley and the second a self-help or bring a friend ring. Sheila Rodger was in control of the list of people waiting to have a go as well as the money. They worked so hard all-day helping people practice and raised 135.40. Laura also managed to get a 5th place in B in between helping everyone! I know everyone appreciates the opportunity to train in a show environment under an experienced handler, so many thanks go to the team for their time and support. The tombola was run by our Vice-President, Maggie Petit and made a fantastic 135.00. This means that 271.00 will be going to the British Heart Foundation.

Chesvale catering is well known for being fantastic, but Gail Nokes, Pauline Finn, Lynne Weston, Julie Green and Stephanie Mayne went to a new level with super decorations in the club colours of blue, gold and white balloons which were weighted with silver covered dumbbells! The food did not disappoint, and the desserts were superb. Jo Dyas and Sally Partridge took over for the afternoon tea and beautiful home-made cakes with a centrepiece special 70th Anniversary celebration cake made by Julie Green. Many of the judges also took away cake for their journey home! Our new competitor caterers (Debs) were great, it was their first dog show and will be back again next year, great food at reasonable prices.

I cannot thank all our members individually in this post as there were over 30 of them! However, I must mention Clare Williams, our Show Secretary, without whom the show could not operate. The rest of our members know how grateful I am for their help and support.

Finally, to all the competitors who attended - we hope you had an enjoyable day and thank you for all the lovely comments and expressions of thanks for putting on a show. A little thanks goes a long way.

Our next show is on Sunday 27th August, pre-beginner, beginner and novice only, so look out for the schedule which will be available shortly. Also put next years May show date in your diary, Sunday 5th May 2024.

Nuneaton show 3rd June  ( 3/5/2023 17:2:14

Copied from the Facebook group -

Nuneaton DTC capped open show on 3rd June (entries close 13th May). Novice is NOW FULL.
Entries for Intro, Pre-Beginners & Beginners are disappointingly low 😞, but I'm hoping that with 3 weeks still to go before closing, that may change.
Our little show is perfect for those just starting out on their Obedience journey, we have super supportive judges, so come and give it a go.
