Newton Heath show. . Slight change to directions  (trimor) 18/10/2017 14:44:37

This only affects those travelling northbound.
After leaving motorway at end of sliproad take 4th exit off roundabout.. The 3rd is A6 which is closed. The 4th is the new by pass. Follow signs for A6 to the end of by pass then follow A6 as normal.

Marks lost for Stays  (brownlg) 7/12/2017 10:11:9

Is it known when a replacement spread sheet will be available, in view of recent changes to length of stays the current sheet is no longer applicable

I think Les has changed the one on the Misc pages to be correct from 1st Jan 18  (Dyane) 7/12/2017 17:3:3

I printed the one Les put on the web last week. I also printed one off about 2 months ago and on going through them both, I could NOT find any differences at all. AND, the copy I have had for a couple of years is again almost the same with just the addition of the extra class at lower end of scale. So, what are the changes then ? can someone please tell me.
Betty   (MadGSDwoman) 10/12/2017 9:3:7

Amendment to Regulation G(C)4.h

Regulation G(C)4.h


(1) Sit Stay: Dogs should remain in the sit position throughout the test. Barking, whining or minor movement such as sniffing the ground, shuffling or turning, without moving from the place where the dog was originally left, should not be considered to be a broken stay but may only be marked a nominal amount for minor movement or noise. Marks must be graduated in accordance with the Kennel Clubs specimen stay chart.

(2) Down Stay: Dogs should remain in the down position throughout the test. Barking, whining or minor movement such as sniffing the ground, shuffling, hip rolling or turning, without moving from the place where the dog was originally left, should not be considered to be a broken stay but may only be marked a nominal amount for minor movement or noise. Marks must be graduated in accordance with the Kennel Clubs specimen stay chart.

(4) Sit 2 minutes, handler out of sight. 20 points

(5) Down 4 minutes, handler out of sight. 30 points


(4) Sit 2 minutes, handler out of sight. 20 points

(5) Down 5 minutes, Handler out of sight. 50 points
  (Dyane) 10/12/2017 10:18:20

I had forwarded a proposal regarding the 'revised' stay sheet asking for clarification in the eventuality of stays being reduced in time. My proposal was acknowledged and accepted for the 11 January 2018 meeting.

I have subsequently had an email from the KC. The text of which is below.....


Thank you for your proposal.

I have to inform you that this issue is already being addressed via the Activities Committee and an update will be given at the Obedience Liaison Council. Following its next meeting this will be published on the KC website here.


I am assuming (always a very dubious practice I know) that the revised document you seek is part of that review.

We will have to wait and see what the Activities Committee advise, I'm afraid

REEDYFORD DTC SHOW saturday 2nd december   (Kymza) 2/12/2017 14:3:49

REEDYFORD D.T.C. Show Saturday 2nd December 2018

On behalf of Reedyford DTC I want to thank all the Judges and Stewards for giving up their time to judge for us, and without you all we wouldnt have a show. I hope you all enjoyed your day as much as we enjoyed having you.

This show was in serious danger of being cancelled only a couple of days before entries closed due to lack of interest but the entries flowed in the last few days.

We are a small club with a handful of Committee members working so hard on the day of our shows, and this time has been no exception. everyone gets stuck in to help make our Show run smoothly. As well as the Committee we are very grateful to have much needed help from the early morning crew at silly oclock to help with setting up the rings and anything else that needs to be done although not Club members are always there to volunteer there help on show days .

An early start on Saturday morning and in just over an hour we have a pop up show a quick brew and bacon butty then all ready for the off. Thank you to you all.

I also want to thank all the competitors. As far as I am aware you all enjoyed your day with us if the comments I received were anything to go by, lots of comments regarding the food served in the cafeteria Elizabeth did an amazing job.

There was just 1 complaint brought to my attention..The sweeties on the table where we had the ring numbers were too accessible.

Congratulations if you went home with a rosette and one of our trophies, I saw quite a few happy people walking out clutching their rosettes & prize cards making their journeys home all that much better.

I would also like to give a BIG thank you and thumbs up to everyone for cleaning up after their dogs, you did us proud, We left Croft Top SPOTLESS.

Hope you all have safe journeys home.

Our next two shows are to be held on the Saturday 3rd March 2018 and Christmas show Saturday 1st December 2018
Croft Top Equestrian Centre. Haslingden, BB5 2DP easily accessible from both the M6 and M62
(We have tried again today to get an earlier date but the only free dates clash with other shows)

All at Reedyford look forward to seeing you there.

Kym Pearson

SAD NEWS - JIM HORAN  (tervy) 23/11/2017 9:3:15

The early hours of this morning Jim Horan passed away.
As many of you will remember Jim and his wife Marg were the stalwarts of Leicester GSD Ch show, always stewarding and judging and in later years, with failing health and mobility were always in the stays rings at many of the Midlands shows.
Their are insufficient words available to say how much Lynn and I will miss Jims friendship, humour and all round great person.
Marg, you have many friends and acquaintances in the sport who will be thinking of you and Jim at this sad time

All our love

Lynn and Bryan Luckock

The loss of another true character of the obedience world.
I and so many others will miss you Jim...
Sincere condolences to Marj, his wonderful companion and rock for so many years.
Another very sad day......
Roger  (rafart) 23/11/2017 10:42:36

We will miss you Jim all our love ❤ Marg thinking 😔 of you xx.  (ken) 23/11/2017 12:28:27

So sorry Sandy  (sandy) 24/11/2017 2:38:42

So sad to hear this. My heart goes out to Marj. What a wonderful partnership you had. Jim was such a stalwart of Obedience competition especially at Leicester.All sympathy and love. Christine Smeaton.  (silver) 24/11/2017 8:30:9

Such sad news.....I have many happy memories of Jim and Marj, over many years being with me in the Stay rings, and their enjoyment in still being involved in the Shows. As memories "live on" Jim will always be around the Obedience world. My love and thoughts to Marj. Marcia
  (marcia756) 24/11/2017 15:46:14

Such sad news ,,will be sorely missed  (Bet) 25/11/2017 16:26:32

Jim was such a great character and worked so hard for obedience, he and Marg have put so much into our great sport over the years. It was a pleasure to have known you Jim, you will be sadly missed. My love to Marg. XX  (LouJackson) 25/11/2017 17:57:23

Midland Inter Regional Team Try Outs  (LouJackson) 25/11/2017 17:50:59

Well, what a fantastic day at the try outs. A superb turnout of both applicants and loyal supporters, we can't thank you all enough for all your support, it was a great atmosphere and you did The Midlands proud. I won't thank individuals as everybody was so giving of their time, money and encouragement but we appreciate every one of you whether stewarding,raffle and tote selling, toy making, venue organising, round walking and decoying or simply cheering on the applicants. The atmosphere was tremendous.
What can I say about the teams, well without exception you should all be proud of what you achieved today, the standard was exceptional in all classes which made our job very difficult especially as we are limited by breed restrictions. It's never easy to work under such pressure but all your dogs did you proud, especially the beginners who were incredible. Thank you all so much for putting in for Team Purple and if you haven't made it please don't be deterred from entering next year.
I will announce the team once everybody has been informed by first class post, letters to go out on Monday, and I get an email to say they have been received.
Well done everyone, give yourselves a big pat on the back.
Lou, Lyn and Steve. xxx

Culverstone Capped show 26.11.17  (Llwyd) 23/11/2017 11:41:37

Does anybody know if there is anywhere to walk the dogs at this venue? I ask because if the parking is a tight as is suggested, perhaps there isn't.

Just want to know if I have to get up an hour earlier and take the dogs for a run somewhere before arriving.

Looking at Google Maps , there is a golf course across the road , & loads of field all around , so there should be plenty of walking places   (dingdongcharlie) 24/11/2017 2:59:52

defibrillator  (Dave) 22/11/2017 12:5:49

Many thanks to Plymouth Dog Training Club, they have donated 300 to the defibrillator fund, also thanks to Rita Goodfellow for arranging it. All donations are welcome as the non rechargeable Battery replacements ect are expensive, Wherever your show is you will probably have a trained operator with a defibrillator at your show, please remember to check if one of the people on the list has entered your show and on the day of the show identify where they have parked, if you have an incident time is of the utmost importance and repeating a well known saying It could be you

Moving to a new hosting company  (ObedienceUK) 14/11/2017 19:52:46

Tomorrow (15th) I will be moving the site to another hosting company (I've lost all faith in the current one. They would not accept that the site has been responding so slowly for the last few week.) I'm just hoping that the move doesn't throw up more problems.

The site will say it's undergoing maintenance until the move is complete.

The site is all setup and waiting on the new host, but I will be changing the settings that tell the internet how to find it when you type in the websites URL.

When the website comes up you will need your username and password to sign in I believe. Could be wrong there!

I'm told the process of propagating the changes around the internet could take up to 48 hours.

When the new site finally appears I've put a red 'A2' text in the header so that you know it's the new host.

OK, it's happened, and if you can see this forum you are now on the new hosts site.

You may walk your dogs on lead around the grassed tracks around the paddocks. Beyond the paddock is a public footpath across fields which could be muddy.

If anyone has barking dogs please park behind the building to keep peace with the locals.
Please clean up after your dogs, there are plenty of waste bins available.
Heating is available in the hall, it is a 1-00 slot meter, could you all possibly donate one pound coin to keep it going. I will put a box by the entrance for your coins.

Possible dates for NBBAGSD Area show 2018  (Dyane) 9/9/2017 23:21:54

First one could be 13th June 2018. Any shows within 150 miles of Beverley planning on this date for their show who hasn't applied for a licence or put the show on the schedule page ?

Doh should be 13th MAY 2018  (Dyane) 9/9/2017 23:23:58

13 May is Culverstone Ch, Wirral and Plymouth  (abenoist) 10/9/2017 14:36:3

Thanks Annette Wirral might be a bit close will look up some other non racing days  (Dyane) 10/9/2017 17:40:44

17th June, 1st July, 15th July,   (Dyane) 10/9/2017 17:50:10

Just guessing Dyane but think those dates are probably Chalfield, Chadkirk & NAABTS. The second two being weekends, I also think Spalding may even be 17th July.  (Kairobea) 10/9/2017 18:35:53

Sorry 15th July
  (Kairobea) 10/9/2017 18:37:1

Thanks Sue. I wish clubs would apply for their licences so the KC have the days :-(
  (Dyane) 10/9/2017 19:32:19

Anyone from Chalfield, NAATS or Chadkirk confirm Your show dates ???  (Dyane) 11/9/2017 15:17:55

3rd June ?  (Dyane) 11/9/2017 17:46:55

I take it no one is interested in helping us find a date for next year's show. Perhaps no one wants the show to be held. Will give it another week & then if no replies another show will be lost.  (Dyane) 13/9/2017 14:34:18

Chalfield 17 June, NAATS 14/15 July CHADKIRK 30 June and 1st July. What about 7/8 July? Or earlier in year 2/3 June (Cheshire may be on 3 June)
  (abenoist) 13/9/2017 17:28:55

Thanks Annette. We have to fit in with the racing days & if racing is on Fri/Mon it's a no go as some horses arrive the day before along with the outside broadcast stuff which takes up half of available car parking-plus their caterers prepare stuff the day before too so even more car parking etc taken up.

Non racing weekends are any dates prior to 18th April(first racing date), 29th April, 13th May, 20th May, 27th May, 3rd June, 17th June, 24th June, 1st July, 15th July, 29th July, 5th Aug, 12th Aug, 19th Aug.

There other events not yet announced that may be on the above dates  (Dyane) 13/9/2017 17:47:43

17th June is the Beverley Folk weekend so ground not available  (Dyane) 13/9/2017 19:0:11

Thanks for trying Dyane, would love to keep this lovely local show x
Mandy and the boys  (MandyM1) 13/9/2017 19:17:52

you could use 3rd June I think,
Nicki Fildes-Moss  (dellkos) 13/9/2017 20:21:4

Definately think 3rd June would be good Dyane.

Any shows on 8th April other than GSD club of Wales ? This is our other possible date   (Dyane) 1/10/2017 15:9:10

If Cheshire relinquish their 3/6 date, the KC are aware that BCCW will take that date instead of the Thursday prior to the 3/6.  (Cathysl) 5/10/2017 20:42:13

Think BCCW will be over 150 miles away  (Dyane) 6/10/2017 7:54:53

Early April is usually North Wales GSD Club weekend, obedience and rally. Not sure of their dates though. Janice   (Choxxstart) 11/10/2017 0:57:3

Looks like 8th April is out as it's Sheffield GSD would never "steal"their date.
Cheshire obviously haven't made up their minds
So 15th April ????  (Dyane) 16/10/2017 10:41:50

Server upgrade  (ObedienceUK) 3/11/2017 8:47:3

OK, I've decided that the ObUK website needs to move to an upgraded server. This is likely to take a few hours. So what is the best day to do it? (The site will be down during the process.)

It will be on MONDAY. Please make sure you have downloaded any schedules you NEED before Monday morning.  (ObedienceUK) 3/11/2017 10:36:52

thanks les..  (puppies) 3/11/2017 14:24:31

The upgrade has happened, and we are now on the new server. I'm not happy because the services on the 2 servers are not the same so I have been changing code all day to be compatible with the new server.

Hopefully I have not missed anything in the frontend (what YOU can see and use), but there is still a lot to be done in the backend (admin section).

If you have any problems (pages crashing) then please let me know, with as much information as possible (e.g. Any error messages and/or screen prints if possible).

Thanks.  (ObedienceUK) 6/11/2017 20:53:14

Hampshire Rally 7th May 18 - B Judge and Steward  (Poppydog1) 1/11/2017 16:3:32

The Hampshire Rally which has been running for over 30 years is a Charity event involving eight Registered Dog Clubs; Andover, Winchester, Petersfield, Haslemere, Eastleigh, Basingstoke, Newbury and West End. It is to be held at the War Memorial Park, London Road, Basingstoke on Bank Holiday Monday 7th May 2018.
We are in urgent need of a B Class Judge and Steward for the Team Allsorts event. If you are able to help please contact:
One of the main aims is to raise money for charity so I am afraid expenses cannot be paid. The Judge and Steward will, however, be invited to breakfast and lunch hosted by Haslemere & District Dog Training Club.

Hi Haslemere,

You require a judge and steward for the Team Allsorts class which is for all levels. Basingstoke club are needing a B judge for the Hampshire Rally. Should you require any further information please email me on

Tillymauld Jive O.W  (Fiona) 26/10/2017 14:33:9

Tillymauld Jive O.W - one in a million

11th November 2001 TO 24th October 2017

I was introduced to the litter by Carol at 3 weeks old, I couldn't get the biggest tri pup out of my head and a couple of days later I agreed to have him. Jive came home at 6 weeks old, he learned at an amazing rate and loved to play. Jive was

exciting to have around, he learned a trick a week and his unique ability to learn enabled him to be taught something new super fast

He picked things up with ease, the cleverest dog I have ever known. In addition to his amazing thought processes, he was the kindest and most honest dog. He enabled me to take over the business of Actadog and was my partner and assistance in every discipline and with every type of dog of all ages. His kindness and perfect temperament was fabulous for puppy class, his lack of interest in dogs enabled him to offer

the most aggressive of dogs some peace and his sharp obedience skills allowed him to double up for prey driven dogs and he trusted that I would keep him safe. He loved showing off his skills in classes, especially his extreme knowledge of working with a clicker, his antics inspired people

and I couldn't be more proud to have such a super dog. I competed with Jive in obedience where he sailed through the classes reaching ticket at a young age, the best sendaway dog of any I have seen and would retrieve anything. Nothing was too big a challenge. Unfortunately a couple of big breaks in shows did not suit him and I chose to retire him at 8 years old - the best sendaway dog I have ever seen with such power too. Jive owed me nothing.

Jive had a stroke in 2015, I thought this would be his downfall but he continued to be a strong character and worked out how to maneuvre hmself to control any dizziness, within 2 weeks he was back to himself.

Jive has been with me through some awful times in my life and I owe him everything.

I could never describe Jive in just one word; clever, kind, thoughtful, playful, intelligent, honest, loyal, an inspiration, a true friend and an honour to have shared his life with me.

Jive isn't just a bright star shining tonight but his character makes a whole constellation

Fiona Holdsworth

I am so very sorry to hear you have lost your lovely boy Fiona. I don't know you that well, but do know what it feels like to lose something so precious. Sending hugs. Jacqui x

Sorry to hear about Tilly. It's true that they really get us through some tough times which is why it is important that we appreciate them when they are here. You can tell from your words how much you really did love and appreciate her xx  (CarolW) 1/11/2017 9:24:30

Barry Townsend  (Jules) 31/10/2017 11:12:6

I was recently informed by a family member that Barry had died.
He had not been involved in the Obedience world for quite a long time but I'm sure that he will be remembered by many. He worked his Border Collies for many years and went on to judge all classes including many ticket rounds.

The funeral will be a private family affair.

So sorry. Sandy  (sandy) 1/11/2017 7:34:49

Message to all Crufts Championship Qualifiers  (richardk) 22/10/2017 13:10:4

Firstly congratulations to everyone who has qualified for the 2018 championships.
As in the past two years the entry forms and schedules will again be sent by email.
Could all qualifiers please let me have their email address as soon as possible so that the office can start work on next years show. If you can do this either by Facebook Messenger or email to that would be great. Please dont do it by replying to this post as it may slip off the bottom and Ill miss it, thanks.

If you know of anyone who is not on Facebook or can you please pass on the message.
I look forward to hearing from you all and to a great show in 2018.

All sorted now thanks.  (richardk) 28/10/2017 6:26:8

Condensed Schedules Page  (ObedienceUK) 25/10/2017 20:55:55

Yesterday I was asked on FB if I could condense the schedules page down to "just obedience" for those only interested in Obedience (and not Rally or Obreedience). So I've had a quick look today and what I've achieved will possibly suit obedience purists :)

I've given you the ability to set a preference in your profile to view Obedience shows only on the schedules page. So if you go to VIEW / EDIT PROFILE (top right of website pages) there is a new checkbox which is called "Show ONLY Obedience schedules", check the box and click update.

When you then go to the Schedules page it will be filtered to just show you 'Obedience' shows. By 'Obedience' I mean: Championship shows, Open Ob shows, CDS, Fun Obedience, and Unaffiliated shows (e,g, BCOS)

If you ever want to go back to seeing ANY schedule then just go back and uncheck the box in your profile.

Thank you to Christine Bowles for the original question.

Hopefully I've made it the best solution for everyone.

What a good idea. Thanks Les.

Sad News - Jacqui Tucker x  (Whyso) 6/10/2017 15:30:8

It is with broken heart that I need to tell friends of Jacqui Tucker that she passed away today (Friday 6th October, 2017) after a short but devastating illness.
Jacqui was the most amazing, creative, friendly, happy and lovely person you could wish to meet. She could brighten up anyone's day and it was my pleasure to have known her.
Jacqui had several dogs over the years competing in obedience, agility, working trials and flyball all with great success.
My thoughts and sincere sympathies are with her daughter Emma, her sister Suzanne and all those who knew her.
Jacqui was one of a kind and I will never have the luck to meet such a person like her again in my lifetime.
Goodnight Jacqui .. I hope you know how many people loved you.
Shirley Budgen.
PS: I will post funeral details when I know them and her dogs have already been safely rehomed.

Goodbye my dearest friend, when the phone rang this morning and the call was from Emma I knew that the time had come, its so hard to comprehend that you are not there at the end of the phone, my goodness have we spent some time on the phone over the last 20 years, we have laughed together, cried together and celebrated together and I am crying now, not for the last time, as I type this. As Shirley has said her dogs have found wonderful forever homes thank you Shirley for your help in this I Know Emma is grateful for your help and kindness. I know you will be looking down on us and saying "Oh my God" as only you can. Goodbye Jac my wonderful quirky friend who I will miss forever but at peace and free from that awful pain. My Thoughts and love are with Emma and Suzanne. Lesley, Brian and the boys xxxx  (manno) 6/10/2017 16:18:48

such sad news .. jacqui will be greatly missed  (puppies) 6/10/2017 17:20:11

Such very sad news. Jac used to come to my house when my husband was alive & talk music with him for hours.She had great success with one of my pups & gave me a rose, which I still have in my garden. Sleep well my friend. You will be so missed. xxx  (brysue) 6/10/2017 19:18:4

What awful news. I and I suspect lots of people didn't know she was ill. Taken far too soon sleep tight Jackie you and your sunny smile will be so missed x

BECKIM DOUBLE TONIC - 01/10/08 - 02/10/17  (REMMIE) 2/10/2017 22:43:47

Owned and much loved by Pat Burford.
Sad news today - Pat had to make the decision this afternoon to have her lovely boy Tonic put to sleep to save further suffering. Having gone 9 months on new medication which was working its magic, he suddenly started fitting again at Thurrock show and again on returning home so today Pat and her vet practice felt it was time to say goodbye to her special boy. He was also suffering from severe pancreatitis which was brought on by the epilepsy. Tonic was very successful up to when Pat had to retire him due to his fitting. He only needed one more qualifier to work ticket but the medication required to keep the fits under control made him lose his co-ordination so Pat reluctantly retired him. Tonic has spent the last 3 years enjoying life to the full and was a pleasure to live with. Never an easy decision to make especially one at only just 9 years old. Sending much love and sympathy to Pat (and Michael) at this very sad time. x

So sorry to read the very sad news Pat - Tonic was such a lovely boy - thinking of you at this sad time. Sandy xx  (Freewheeling) 3/10/2017 8:28:42

So sorry Pat , having recently lost our old boy , I know how you are feeling , sending big hugs .XX  (dingdongcharlie) 3/10/2017 14:16:26

Pat, Very sorry to hear about Tonic, thinking of you at this sad time. You did everything you could for him, he was a lucky boy to have a lovely home. Debbie and Alan.   (DebbieG) 5/10/2017 21:11:22

So sorry Pat thinking of you at this sad time xx  (lynkavanagh) 6/10/2017 8:51:5

CHESHIRE DTA shows cancelled   (LAINEY) 5/10/2017 15:36:38


CHESHIRE DTA weekend shows 7th /8th October

It is with much regret, that after a ground inspection at our new venue, following 12 hours of torrential rain we have made the unfortunate decision to cancel both shows this coming weekend.
The ground is totally water logged.

The show committee are really disappointed having to reach this decision given the amount of hard work everyone at Cheshire DTA has put in.

We will advice competitors in due course regarding refunds.

If you know of any competitors who are not on FB or Ob Uk could you please let them know of the cancellation and feel free to share this post .

Cheshire Committee

So sorry you've had to cancel your show bloody weather 🐝🐟🐠🐳🐋🐬🐊.  (ken) 5/10/2017 17:24:44

ElmRock weekend  (iappleton) 4/10/2017 9:29:5

Another fab ElmRock weekend - and werent we lucky with the weather, I really thought we were in for a soaking on Sunday, but fortunately no-one did a rain dance and we ended up with a dry day! It ran like a well-oiled machine, although some of the cogs are creaking a bit these days!

Well done to our ticket winners Mary Ray with Lyric and Dot Watts with Zyco wow you ladies had a fabulous weekend, doing the same on Sunday too excellent. Also Id like to congratulate all the successful competitors.

Thanks to the Thurrock gang Kath, John, Rod, Liz, Dave and Sue for all your help setting up and taking down the show, and thanks to Vanda, Teresa, Linda and Gaynor for manning the gate and holding back the flood of caravans until we got the rings up. Also Dave Gillett and the Elm Park crowd Colin, Mick, Lyn, Margaret, Julie, Sandra, Ian, Paula, Les, Steve, Nicola for turning up early Friday to set the show up. Thanks to Smiffys for a great lunch which everyone enjoyed. Thanks to all our judges and stewards for giving up their day and to Richard Kebble for being our Chief Steward, not always an easy job and hope you will be willing to do it again next year. Thanks also to Colin and his stay team, Wendy, Nicola, Paula, Jason and Nicola for all your help in the marquee. If Ive forgotten to thank anyone thank you too. Thank you to those who helped with the lunchtime stays and anyone who volunteered for scent decoys. The clearing up operation on Sunday was made so much easier by all those who helped I think it was done in record time!

STAYS at Midlands Shows  (marcia756) 1/10/2017 17:48:36

I wish to say Thank You to those who have helped Steward in the Stay ring. I have been fortunate at the majority of the Shows to have two or three stewards who have been with me all day, sometimes for the two days, then others have popped up, offered their help, and stayed for a few classes. Thank you to John Ball who sometimes will cover one of the two day Shows. We are there to make sure the Stays run smoothly, happily, on time, and in accordance with each judges' wishes.

A BIG THANK YOU to you all......Couldn't do it without you!! Marcia

Marcia, you and your gang are absolutely amazing and I would like to say a big thank you for giving up so much of your time for our sport it is greatly appreciated xx
