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)

WOBURN CAMPING - FULL  (hackpack) 28/3/2018 13:36:53

Sorry everyone, but Woburn camping is now full. Owing to work at our venue this year, we have had to reduce the number of campers we feel able to accommodate. As all our regulars competitors know, it is a lovely venue with woods and acres of dog walking space, so we would love you all to keep coming. There are alternative camping sites in the area which people have used in the past few years.

Newbury Open Show 10th June, Closing Date 28/04/18  (Brynards) 21/4/2018 19:43:48

Hurry, Hurry, Hurry all you NEWBIES - old or young. You only have ONE week to enter our Introductory Class. (Closing Date 28th April) We have put this class on this year especially for you as the next step from the top class in a Companion Dog Show and the first gentle step into Open Shows. But it is a case of Use It or Lose It as I'm afraid that if we don't get more than the six (6) entries, we will not be able to put it on again. So COME ON YOU NEWBIES. Enter our show. Beautiful venue, level, short cut grass, clean toilets, food available all day and friendly people.
A reminder
Introductory Class is for handlers, of any age at all, who have never won an Introductory Class or who have not won 4th place or above in a Pre-Beginners or above.

To mark this day - and to publicly thank Judy for all she's done to keep the show going over the years - there will be a surprise presentation by the Special GSD Ring between lunch sittings, at approximately 1.10pm. There will also be a card for judges and competitors alike to sign at the Special GSD table from the start of judging.
Please make the effort to come and sign a few words of thanks.... She's not on the internet so it's not worth posting your thank you messages on here tonight or tomorrow...
Thank you xxxxx

Therefore, on Saturday at Oxhey there WILL be a pre beg dog winner and line up as well as a pre beg bitch winner and line up.

Now where do I begin ?

Firstly thanks to everyone who helped in anyway with the show if you are not mentioned you help is appreciated.

In no particular order:-

My thanks to the ring putter up & take down crew( plus car parking etc etc etc), Graham & Eileen Wellings, John & Eileen Grice, Donald & Beryl Wright & Ken & Carol Boulton.

The "refreshment" team, John(Mr Bacon Butty Supreme) & Carol(Captain of the sales team) Midgley, Sharon & Nikki our "junior team" plus Janet(always ready to help)Thickbroom

The Stay Queen Carol Burton & her stay team(whoever you were) & a welcome back to Janet from the local Branch.

Special thanks to my best mate Josie for help in feeding the judges & sorting stuff out later in the day & the day before.

To all our Judges & stewards thank you thank you thank you. Especial thanks to Beryl Wright for saving the day by stepping into the Novice breach along with her steward. I do hope Nina Weaver is soon up & running again after having an very bad allergic reaction this weekend & not being able to judge.

To our exhibitors thank you for entering & leaving the ground spotless.

Finally grateful thanks to the racecourse for allowing us the use of the new building, car park(hard standing bliss) & grassed area. Such a shame that the race meeting on 17th April has had to be abandoned due to the track being waterlogged in places.

Will there be another show next year??? Watch this space

Pre-Beg at Oxhey   (WendyB) 16/4/2018 18:46:2

Due to the lower than anticipated Pre-Beginner entry, we will now be combining the two separate sex classes into one mixed sex class with just ONE set of prizes on offer instead of the planned TWO...
We very much hope that a larger entry next year will allow us to run parallel classes which will award Two winners and Two sets of prizes.

BAGSD Oxhey announcements  (WendyB) 16/4/2018 6:41:44

Mr George Rogers is now unable to judge Novice Bitch part one. We hope he is soon feeling better. We are very grateful to Karen Smith for stepping in at short notice to judge this class, bringing a full team with her.
We now need ONE MORE CAR PARKING STEWARD. This is a very important role as we need everyone to be parked safely with minimal damage to the ground. PLEASE PARK AS DIRECTED. DRIVE AT NO MORE THAN 5MPH.
We are looking forward to greeting our army of "EARLY BIRD COMPETITORS" who can offer help in setting up the rings with posts and ropes - the ground will be marked out with spray paint and there will be field plans available to help everyone get this vital job done quickly and efficiently.
Our TWO training rings will be manned by a number of different people, willing to give up a little time to help others. A ROTA will be by each ring so that people willing to act as judge/steward can sign up for time slots. This is also a great opportunity for anyone who wishes to try out their judging and stewarding skills. Our grateful thanks in advance to everyone who signs up to assist. Money raised will go to Garbo's GSD Rescue.
There will be our SIGN UP FOR STAYS folder in the stay team's tent by the stay ring. Once you are booked in and know your own stay times, please sign up for a few sets of stays to help us keep the stays running smoothly.
Thank you from Team Oxhey xxx

BAGSD Oxhey help plea  (WendyB) 11/4/2018 6:19:54

OK It's BAGSD Oxhey SHOUT OUT TIME again!!! 😄😘

At this moment we still need ONE NOVICE STEWARD.
We also need a few scoreboard helpers - even if people can just help out through the running order and into the first few competitors??? You can still work your dogs and help in this way. Please get in touch...

Now our usual plea - early bird help to set up?
We're in a public park and can't set up until the morning of the show so..... We need :-

* About 3 lovely level headed people to organise the car parking. We MUST NOT drive across and churn up the football pitches. Anyone bringing a spare husband with them and arriving early??? Free scrummy brekkie awaits....

* Setting up early bird people for stake pushing in (The rings are all marked out with spray on the day before) and rope wrangling!!!

* Litter pickers - vital as local residents are a mucky lot on the whole! 😝 This role suits agile under 50s or gym bunnies!!

* Chair, table and scoreboard Luggers - yes, we're nearly there.....!

* Stay steward volunteers!!!!! We have the legendary and original Signing Up Folder and it'll be in the stay steward's tent right by the stay ring.
- once you're all booked in and know when you're going to be busy, PLEASE PLEASE come and sign up for at least ONE set of stays!

We are a TINY CLUB - We need your help on the day to keep going!

You know it makes sense... 😎

Love and gratitude from Wendy, Judy, Bernadette and a couple of others 💕💜💕💜💕💜💕

My spare husband and I will try to be early and go where directed. Lily  (doghouse) 11/4/2018 8:10:52


If you still need a novice steward Im willing to do it. Julia 07759810392  (jonwills) 14/4/2018 16:50:4

Hi, we don't need any ring stewards now but DO need stay stewards.
Setting up rings starts at 6.30am.

If people drive over the football pitches and churn up the venue, we could lose it!!! They'll only be needed until 10am but are ABSOLUTELY VITAL.

ST EDWARDS SHOW 7th July 2018: Glebe Football Club ground (previously Old Elthamians) Chislehurst, BR7 6SD

Having had to cancel our original show date from 30th June I am pleased to confirm we have managed to secure our new venue for the following week of 7th July. However, before I get stuck into rushing round arranging everything I wanted to post on here first to make sure there are no other shows in the near vicinity being planned for the same date.

At the moment I am aware of three other shows (Peterborough, Devon and IOM) which should all be far enough away not to disrupt entries/judges for any of us but obviously if any of the show committees feel there would be an issue please let me know. Also if there are any other shows being planned then too please can you let me know urgently so I can cancel everything early enough that it wont cost us a fortune.

All left now is to try finding some more judges for the new date any lovely volunteers gratefully received of course :). My email is or feel free to message me on facebook. I shall also be at Oxhey if you want to grab me there, thanks Alison.

update coseley show  (bluezonic) 13/4/2018 17:29:7

Had a look at the fields and the show goes on may have to adjust my ring plan because its a bit water logged in places.Parking there will be limited parking on the grass none of which will be along the bank all will be opposite side to the bank and will be roped off there is plenty of hard standing parking so if you know your vehicle will get stuck use the hard standing i know if i used my van i would get stuck if anyone does get stuck come and find me i will take my 4x4 now we dont want any complaining about parking we are doing our best to keep this show on all you have to think is if this weather keeps on a lot of shows will be cancelled because they have no hard standing parking so though its not ideal at least you have a show Tony

BCOS Grand Prix Cancelled  (ObedienceUK) 13/4/2018 14:55:33


It is with a heavy heart that I post this message.... The BCOS Team have made a very difficult decision. Unfortunately we have been forced to cancel the show, due to the impact of the recent weather. The ground is basically flooded, and it would be unsafe to put any vehicle on it and have the foot traffic over the two days would make it challenging to say the least. We are obviously absolutely gutted!!

We have had people attend the venue this morning, in the vain hope that the ground would be at least usable. Sadly, although some parts may be marginally usable, the impact of a two day show, hundreds of people walking on the venue, dogs and vehicles, would leave the venue totally saturated and unsafe we feel we have no choice. The risk to safety and well being of attendees cannot be ignored. We can only apologise for the inconvenience it may cause you.

Information about entries and refunds will be be communicated in due course.

I have attached some photos, from this morning to illustrate the severity of the ground.

To say we are gutted, would be an understatement. The work and preparation put into any show cannot be overestimated, and this decision wasnt made lightly.

Once again, our sincere apologies.

The BCOS Team. (Kamal)

NBBAGSD 15/4/3018(Beverley)  (NBBAGSD) 13/4/2018 9:39:13

Please note the show is still on. The parking area is tarmac & adjacent to the rings.

Please do not arrive too early as we will be putting up the rings on the show day & not before.

The exercise area is the centre of the race track not the track itself(at the request of the Racecourse).

The refreshments will be in the Owners & Trainers building not our previous building.

B.ham and District GSD - 2 CHAMPIONSHIP SHOWS  (polomazda) 11/4/2018 19:31:26

I am pleased to announced that today it has been confirmed that our association has been granted DOUBLE CHAMPIONSHIP STATUS permanently. I have never reached the heights of working ticket myself so have not done this for personal reasons I have done this for the Obedience fraternity in general.(We are losing too many shows). It is always difficult to get judges, especially for Championship shows, so I hope I have not put my head in a noose, I would appeal to all ticket handlers please help to make this successful and offer to judge an open class at our shows once every 5 or 6 years. This years shows are sorted just awaiting the last 2 phone calls but offers for the future will be gratefully accepted. I will be there in my tent at this years shows armed with blank judging contracts.
Two ticket shows at the same venue, same weekend - 3rd ticket show follows the next weekend at same venue.
You all seemed to enjoy it last year - lets make it a success every year.

EXETER CHAMP /OPEN SHOW CAMPING  (Christhetoerag) 5/3/2018 6:56:1

I have booked the usual camping field direct with the owners for 12 days around the show. From Monday 21st May through to Friday 1st June. Anyone who would like to take advantage of a longer stay than that offered by the club please get in touch with me direct either at ,through messenger or my mobile 07768940826. Payment should be made direct to me either in advance or when you arrive. Once I know what nights you would like to stay I will send you out a pass.
Chris Fifield

It would appear that the Chairman has got his knickers in a twist. He would like people to only pay him for the Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday and to organize payment with me for any nights you wish to stay outside those days, ie: Monday,Tuesday and Wednesday before the show and Monday through to Friday after the show. Hope this is clear for everyone  (Christhetoerag) 5/3/2018 14:31:40

I am writing in response to the post by Chris Fifield to clarify the position regarding camping at the EDTC Championship/Open Show in May of this year.

Exeter Dog Training Club has a contract with the owners of the camping field allowing us to provide camping for those attending the show. As stated in the catalogue this covers the period from 4.00 pm on Thursday 24th May until noon on Monday 28th May 2018. Camping for this period MUST be paid for with show entries.

Chris has organised the additional camping facility as a private individual and NOT as a member of the EDTC Show Committee or on behalf of the Exeter Dog Training Club. We appreciate that some people like to spend a longer period in Devon and extend their stay for a period prior to and/or after the show. Unfortunately the EDTC Committee were unable to give a guarantee to the owners of the field regarding security outside of the dates given in the show schedule, resulting in EDTC offering a shorter period of camping to competitors than in previous years.

Those who wish to extend their stay should pay Chris separately for those days outside of the period 4.00 pm on Thursday 24th May to noon on Monday 28th May 2018.

Paul Cousins
EDTC Show Committee
  (moortime) 5/3/2018 15:16:53

I'm just curious regarding who is responsible for security, insurance etc on the days outside those covered by the club?  (RobS) 6/3/2018 17:23:35

GSD Club of Wales Open Show 8th April

Monmouthshire Showground

We have inspected the ground today and it is holding up well to the weather. The rings should be fine although the grass might be a little longer than we would like as we dont want to take a heavy grass cutter onto the field (but still very manageable as the area has been grazed). Cars may have to be parked around the perimeter roads that go through the site, but we will review the parking arrangements when we get to the venue on Saturday and have a more accurate picture. We will do our best to provide a good show but ask for your patience and understanding if things are a little more challenging than usual.

steward needed  (trimor) 16/3/2018 14:29:30

Can anyone steward a B for me at Leicester?

GCDS  (CHRISBEN) 15/3/2018 11:24:17

Does anyone know where I can buy either the cloth badge with the read GCDS logo or a polo shirt or other similar item of clothing, I've seen people wearing them but cant find any for sale anywhere?

As it's run by the Kennel Club, I would suggest you try the Kennel Club website.  (glenysgrimes) 16/3/2018 6:0:39

Kennel club dont do them i have already tried them, but someone must be doing them cause I've seen people wearing them.

Chalfield - Chief Stay Steward needed  (jazztherazz) 22/2/2018 19:25:39

Hello to all you lovely Dog People,
We at Chalfield are in need of a kind volunteer to help at our open show on June 17th as the Chief Stay Steward. Anyone who has been to our show in the lovely ground of Rushcliffe County Park in Nottingham, will know that its a really fine venue, the stay ring is tree sheltered on three sides and all working surfaces are mown the day before to give competitors the best experience that we can. Chalfield does its best with our very small team to be a friendly, welcoming team, we also look after our helpers very well, as of last year, we introduced an off site Italian lunch, as well as looking after those who prefer to stay on site.
If anyone can help us, or knows someone who might help to be in charge of the stays, please let us know, either by phoning shelia on 01159745746, or contacting her via the obuk facebook page, or of course by this thread - Thanks - 'Fred' CDTC

Alternatively please use email  (jazztherazz) 6/3/2018 17:13:19

Parham Point to Point, near Storrington WestSussex  (chris P) 1/3/2018 11:21:26

Hi, On 17 March, there is the Parham Point to Point just outside of Storrington. They are having their first fun dog show, and classes are best veteran dog, fun dog, best gundog etc, 7 classes in all. They are looking for a versatile fun judge who could do the judging and although not paid, would be VERY well looked after, the hospitality would be second to none, free breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks, parking etc etc. The parking would be superior parking and free tickets for a friend/s who can also help the judge, and possible share the load. Also free tickets for the point to point spectating if you have a horsey friend who would like to watch.
As usual, time is running out, so if any kind person/s in the local would really like a great day out, please contact me and I will give you the contact number of Sue who can tell you more about it.
Waiting in anticipation, many thanks.
Chris P

Reedyford dtc show CANCELLED  (Kymza) 28/2/2018 16:12:2

Absolutely gutted to be having to let you all know that Reedyford dtc show this coming saturday 3rd March is now CANCELLED due to the snow, with more on the way.
This decision has not been taken lightly and with more heavy snow forecast for us again tonight,tomorrow and friday night we have decided to cancel it just would not be safe for people traveling with their dogs, we also have judges snowed in with no sign of moving their vehicles within the next few days.
It just is not worth taking the risk travelling unnecessarily .
