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)

My opportunity to say THANK YOU to those competitors who offer to Stay steward, and "come running" when I shout Help.
A special thanks to Rosemary who has stayed a good part of the day covering many classes, and at the Sandwell Valley shows Chris, with us all days. To Paul, when he is not Ring Stewarding, will be with me All day, and very often doing Running Repairs on Kyams, and on the Gazebo, which collapsed on top of four of us!! To those 3 or 4 who will remain all day at many of the other shows, you all make it so much easier, and I hope.....happy rings.
A VERY BIG THANK YOU TO YOU ALL. Hopefully do it all again next year.

The biggest thank you goes to you Marcia for stay stewarding for our shows, you are very much appreciated especially from Loughborough. You stand out in all weathers and never complain, I am sure I say for all us Secretaries a big THANK YOU.  (robz) 12/10/2018 13:15:19

Elm Park Show 6th October 2018  (iappleton) 12/10/2018 13:16:44

How could three days be so different. Friday was great for setting up the rings and the show in the dry. Then Saturday, well what can I say I think Elm Park drew the short straw, but the show carried on. Then Sunday was a lovely day and we got cleared up in the dry.

Firstly well done to our ticket winners, June Stenning and Iatka Starshine, making her a champion and Jenny Lunn and Ob Ch Longhalves on a Rhythm, congratulations to you both. Well done to all competitors who won their classes and managed to compete in the terrible weather.

A great big thank you to all those clubs and competitors around the country, who gave donations to help our funds, it really was most appreciated and our club is solvent again, many thanks. Thank you to Colin and his stay team (Jan, Julia, Janet, Sue, Holly, Charlie, Julie, Derek). Thank you to all the judges, stewards, scribes and scoreboards who gave up their day. A huge thanks to those who did scent decoys in the pouring rain, and a special thanks to Serena and Julie for doing the ticket decoy after a full day judging and stewarding as I needed 5 scent decoys at the same time. Thanks to Kath, Liz, Sue, John and Rod from Thurrock. To Paula, Les, Ian, Julie, Mick, Lyn, Margaret, Janet, Sheila, Nicola and Wendy from Elm Park for all their help over the weekend. I do hope everyone has dried out! Thanks to Teresa, Vanda, Linda and to Les Willis, Malcolm and Shaun for keeping the gate well-guarded through the weekend. Thanks to you, no uninvited guests managed to get onto the field. Thanks to Smiffys for the lovely lunch. I hope I havent left anyone out, but if I have thanks to you too.

We hope to see you all again next year.

Elmrock Weekend  (Kath) 8/10/2018 11:22:22

Yet another successful Elmrock weekend done and dusted. From setting up in a heatwave on Friday, to arctic temperatures and torrential rain on Saturday, to fairly chilly but sunny on Sunday. Where to start with the thank yous? A huge extra special thanks must go to Dave Gillett who comes along to help us put up the rings on Friday, even though hes not a member of either club. Not only that, he also kindly stepped in to judge B Dog on Sunday after Shirley Hayward broke down on the way to the show (hope your cars not too poorly Shirley!) Dave youre an absolute star, thank you 😘 Thanks as always to the ladies on the gate on Friday - Teresa, Vanda, Linda and Gaynor. Much appreciated! And grateful thanks to everyone else who helped with the rings etc on Friday. Massive thanks to Malcom & Sean who manned the gate all weekend - a pretty thankless task but necessary. Thanks guys! Thanks also to Les who volunteered to do the silly o clock in the morning gate duties both days. Again much appreciated! Huge thanks to all the Thurrock judges and stewards. I hope you enjoyed your day with us. Thanks as well to the people who answered my request for score stewards, especially Domini who made a special journey. This is now beginning to sound like an Oscar speech!! Massive humongous thanks to Fran Godfrey for finding our decoy stewards again this year - I cant begin to say how much easier it is not having to search around for spare bodies in the afternoon when everyones busy. And thank you to said decoys for your help. Thanks as always to Rod White and his stay team - Charlie Webley, Trevor Curtis, Kay Griffiths, Dave Law, Steve Parmiter who did the lunch time slot, and everyone else who volunteered after Karen Smith went round with her little book 😂 Cheers Karen xx Whopping great thanks to Richard Kebble for being our Chief Steward again. Hope we can persuade you to do it all again next year lol. Phew nearly there! Im sitting in the van by the gate waiting for the last of the happy campers to leave, writing this and frantically trying to think if Ive forgotten anyone. I sincerely hope not ☹️ Last of all, mega thanks to all our Elmrock gang for all their hard work over the weekend. Another successful year! Congratulations to our 2 Ticket Winners - Kathy & Zuri and Mary & Frankie. Good luck at Crufts!

Thanks to all, for all the work that goes into these double weekends. Really appreciated. Can't do much about the weather, but hey ho. Lovely weekend.

Valgrays Chocalate (Chokki)  (chris P) 3/10/2018 16:53:42

Our beloved Chokki went to Rainbow Bridge today. He was a rescue from Valgrays, so loved by us and everyone who new him. 9 years old, dumped onto a lorry car park, we took him in and loved him as did our Woughstock Ellie. After we lost Ellie, Chokki came everywhere with us. He had a huge "pub" fan club. However, in the space of 4 weeks, he had a massive 4 inch tumour on his heart and feelers spreading out to every other part of his body. His eye became paralised, unable to blink because of this tumour. All within 4 weeks.
Chokki did not take to obedience, but has been so loved and so treasured, we did the best thing for him. He lost all interest in his "piddgy birds and squissy squerals.

What a sH** year - my mother with dementia, husband having a stroke, and now today a broken heart regarding Chokki.

So very sorry to hear this Chris .. such a lovely boy.
My thoughts are with you and huge hugs to you xxx
Shirley   (Whyso) 3/10/2018 17:5:20

So sorry Chris, as you say what a horrible year. Sleep well Chokki  (Mikadine) 4/10/2018 7:7:5

NOCF 2018 - IMPORTANT UPDATE on entries  (jembush) 26/9/2018 10:25:19

After much consideration, and listening to your feedback, we have taken the decision to reduce the qualifying criteria to around 80% of the original specification for this year's event.

We feel that this is justified for a number of reasons, and should not 'dilute' the competition :

* This summer's extreme heat, meaning a number of missed classes for some
* The cancellation of a number of shows earlier in the year, due to the wet weather
* The earlier date for our show this year, meaning a shorter period for gaining qualifying points

The revised qualifying points for each class are now as follows :

Prebeginners - 8 points
Beginners - 9 points
Novice/A/B - 16 points
C - 12 points

The closing date remains the same - 1st October, and cannot be extended, so if you are now qualified, get your entries in quick, as the caps also remain in place for all classes!

Aint misbehavin agility clothing sponsor our pre-beginners

The Howl Emporium sponsor our class A
Arden Grange Petfoods sponsor our class B sponsor our class C

We mare very graqteful to all our sponsors for their continued support for NOCF

Sadly entries for this years event are lower than expected, so unless we get lots of entries in this week this may well be the last NOCF event, so come on folks, if you want this event to continue you need to show your suppport and enter!!!!

If you have any queries about eligibility, please post here or email on

thank you all   (alternatejan) 23/9/2018 20:22:2

well thats it for another year!!!!!
so far..... as there is a chance of more donations coming in lol xxx .
You have raised a total over this years coffee afternoon (inc the Sat b4) a FANTASTIC total of 1288.93

I have had a fantastic time with you all over the last 4 years doing the coffee afternoon and this year was no exception and as usual you have astounded me with your generousity in donations of money, time, help, goodies to sell and for the tombola and raffle.... so many people have worked hard to raise money by baking cakes to sell and raffle, making jam, fishing and donating items to tombola, raffle and sell, others have donated time in helping either b4 the event or on the days and each one of you is appreciated and valued and we couldn't have done it without you xxx thanxxx to everyone who came and supported by giving your money to such a fantastic cause.xx

As most of you may know numpty here had the idea of a small get together, in a field, at a show, so dog folk could get to know other dog folk, and raise a bit of money for Macmillan.... well that 1st year that small get together was bigger than I thought it would be and each year it has grown and progressed and evolved into a fantastic event. This year I can honestley say my head has not been in gear as much as it should have been and without the support of the fantastic people who came to my aid I dont think I could have coped. I am very happy to say though that after 4 years I will no longer be doing any of the organising and can sit back, relax and watch the event take place as James and Sarah Prince will be doing the event from now on... They can take it to bigger and better heights than I can (plus theyre younger!!! lol) and they are also down there for the week in between so dont have the same restraints that I have... I am happy to say that the baton has been passed on and hopefully that baton will keep being passed on to others over the years..
I would just like to say a BIG THANXXXXXX to EVERYONE for your support over the last 4 years and join with me in wishing the Princes all the best for the next umpteen years that they do itxx

Birmingham shows 22nd & 23rd September  (DaveB) 13/9/2018 16:10:20

With so many people having either left or leaving for the Birmingham week, the running orders are still NOT showing. Saturday morning's going to be a nightmare if people don't see them very soon, no one's going to have any idea IF they're drawn or even which part they're in.
Any idea's ---- Anyone?
