Happy Birthday Tilly  (Just Tilly) 17/9/2020 7:58:35

Tilly is 16 today. Well I say today but I am not really sure. When I picked her up on 5th Nov 2004 they said she was 7 weeks old. So I counted back 7 weeks and came up with 17th Sept as this is my youngest nephew's birthday I thought that will do. She has been struggling to walk on hard surfaces so I invested in a doggie pushchair. It has given her a new lease of life. We can now go some of our old haunts and have met with some old friends. She can still remember who has the TREATS! She has one or two health problems but they are not bothering her at the moment luckily.

Sad news. Beath Sergeant   (puppies) 8/9/2020 8:59:1


I was so sorry to hear that Beath Sergeant had passed away

She was certainly someone who gave a huge amount of her time to obedience over many years. From memory she was on the Committee or acted as Secretary/Treasurer at many clubs including Newmarket, West Suffolk, Deben Valley, Eastern Counties Shetland Sheepdog Club and East Anglian Working Trials Club. She was Head Trainer at Newmarket for many years and helped so many people especially at their start of their obedience journey.

She trained many dogs over the years in obedience and working trials including Miniature Poodles, Boxer, Beardies, a Goldie, Shelties and more recently she had Border Collies, enjoying her training days with Kim Innes. Beath had so many stories of obedience over the years and could have a wicked sense of humour.

Beath always considered being asked to judge a great honour and always looked very smart when judging. In latter years, despite not working a dog, she was often found helping all day in the stay ring. She was certainly someone who put far more into the sport than she ever took out.

My thoughts are with her devoted Sister Kay and Beaths friends at this very sad time

Bernice


That is very sad news. What a character Beath was. I admired the way she kept up with the obedience training, never letting her grand age get in the way of doing something she loved. Sending love to Kay and other friends and family. Love from Sharon   (dingdongcharlie) 9/9/2020 16:29:1

I spent many days in the stay rings with Beath , & always enjoyed chatting with her , she will be sadly missed when the shows start again , RIP Beath  (dingdongcharlie) 11/9/2020 10:33:53

SAD NEWS WALLIS FABLES LADY  (Bettsy Chris) 10/9/2020 14:56:53

Just to let my obedience friends who aren't on Facebook that Wallis passed away on 9 Sept 2020. She was my soul mate. I enjoyed the shows with her.



Midlands Inter Regional Obedience Team Crufts 2021  (LouJackson) 7/9/2020 20:30:17

MIDLANDS INTER REGIONAL OBEDIENCE TEAM
CRUFTS 2021
In these unprecedented times our sport has suffered greatly but we are ever hopeful that Crufts 2021 will go ahead in some form. With that in mind we are inviting applicants for our Midlands team, bearing in mind that the selection process will be slightly different this year.
Whilst we realise that most of you will have no show results to offer, I will still be asking for application forms to be submitted and a selection day will still be held on Sunday 29th November at Tomlinsons Canine Centre, Markfield, Leics. We will be allocating time slots for each applicant and these will have to be strictly adhered to. Only one buddy per applicant and Im afraid we wont be able to allow spectators or our usual fundraising this year. Entry will be at own risk and it must be remembered that Crufts 2021 may still be cancelled, even at a very late date, such are these very uncertain times. We can only hope that it may continue in some form or other.
We are confident that we can achieve this safely with your help and wouldnt it be great to do something doggy again?!!
Keep safe, Lou, Lyn and Steve.


The Application Form is on the schedules page against the selection day date.  (ObedienceUK) 9/9/2020 9:35:47

BCOS show at Emneth on 13th September CANCELLED  (ObedienceUK) 3/9/2020 0:18:49

It is with a heavy heart and regret that we have to announce that our forthcoming BCOS show at Emneth on 13th September 2020 will have to be cancelled.
On August 23rd 2020 the government announced changes that would be implemented on August 28th 2020 about gatherings larger than 30.
We have spent many hours trying to find ways of making the show work within the government guidelines but alas we cannot find a solution.
June Le Fevre
will be sending out emails to all of you that have entered, by the end of play on Friday 4th September 2020. So please check your emails.
We, the BCOS Team would like to thank each and everyone of you for your continuing support and understanding in these difficult times.
We just wish we could have given you all a fab day out with your fab dogs doing the sport we love.
We hope that our future shows will go ahead (we will keep monitoring the government guidelines), but in the meantime, keep well and stay safe everyone xx

Operational plan for the resumption of obedience  (ObedienceUK) 17/8/2020 17:42:43

Shared from Kennel Club Activities website:

Societies are required to consider Government advice, including DEFRA, in place at the time when planning an event. It is also worth noting that current advice is different for different parts of the United Kingdom and this needs to be taken into account when planning the event both in relation to the venue and expected participants.

Updated 11/08/2020

Risk assessment
A copy of how to layout your obedience risk assessment can be found here.

Obedience regulations temporarily suspended / amended until 1 July 2021
Societies are advised to hold smaller shows where possible to allow more space for social distancing and space around rings. Classes could be planned for either a morning or afternoon, and be advised in the schedule so that competitors can manage their arrival and departure.

All special arrangements put in place in relation to the regulations listed below must be clearly stated in the schedule.

Regulations have been amended / altered to facilitate smaller shows as follows:

Licences Regulation G.7

Societies may apply for any type of licence up to 6 weeks prior to the show date. (The required date may not be available if another Championship society already has that date.)

Awards Regulation G19

Printed award cards need not be given but class results can be sent out after the show to all competitors to be retained as evidence

Catalogue Regulation G26

Electronic version only to be shared with judges and other officials. Any Kennel Club returns to be sent electronically

A Complete set of results to be published as a record of the dogs achievements instead of prize cards.

Running orders Regulation G29.f

Societies will decide whether classes will have a pre-drawn full running order or one set up on the day, either as a full running order or time slots as handlers book in. In each case the order of working must be adhered to with handlers available to compete when required.

Timed stays Regulation G29.g

Stay times will remain as per regulations but timed stays and the need for a separate ring may be suspended if the show society wishes. Classes may instead have stays in groups in the working ring, for example after every 10/12 dogs have been judged, those dogs will then do their stays, or at the end of class with only those with a viable score. Judge and Ring Steward will manage the stays when they take place in the working ring.

Number of entrants / classes

Regulation G(A)

It is suggested that not all classes are scheduled but that events are restricted to either the lower classes (e.g. Introductory to A) or higher (e.g. Novice to C).

Regulation G(A)3

It is recommended to restrict any dog to enter no more than two classes.

Capped Classes Regulation G(A)13

Societies are advised to consider the use of capped classes.

Competing Regulation G34.f scent and Equipment Regulation G(C)2.d

Scent test for Class A, B & C can take place as part of the ring work in a designated area of the ring set aside for this.

Tests Regulation G(C)4.i.(3) and Regulations G(C)4.i.(4)

Class A and Class B scent will be as detailed in the Regulations

Class C Scent will be the handlers scent, there will be 2 decoy cloths, both from the same decoy steward.

All cloths will placed in a box and not handled for at least 48 hours before the event.

The judge will place the cloth in the pattern in Class B & Class C.

The Ring steward may then act as decoy steward.

Version suitable for printing


Has anyone actually read the risk assessment? You are not allowed to look at the stay sheets until 48hrs after the show has finished? Thats going to be fun working out the winner. Do we need to bag each individual retrieve article and scent cloth?
Heather  (Wispasmum) 18/8/2020 11:48:38

Re stay sheets. Would we need to be called back after 48 hours if there's a run-off due to a minor stay break?   (dingdongcharlie) 18/8/2020 13:57:59

Who typed the risk assessment? Have they heard of spellcheck?   (dingdongcharlie) 19/8/2020 14:28:48

Lots of indoor shows will not have the room for 3m around all ring sides. Winter shows held in equestrian centres will find that hard to do.  (Whoopie) 1/9/2020 17:44:38

Do we need to worry about spell check at these awful times 🤔  (lmc) 2/9/2020 21:11:41

Jin''N''Tomic - Sad Announcement  (K9MadLady) 19/8/2020 13:19:47

Most Obedience friends will already know but those not on FB may not be aware
JIN'N'TONIC 30-08-2014 to 10-08-20220

My beautiful boy Jinty has gone to Rainbow Bridge on Monday, 10th August 2020
His body went but his soul will always be with me.
Thanks for all your support messages form everyone while we were battling an unknown enemy.

He had been under the care of The Willows Veterinary Referral Centre Solihull over the last 5 weeks, where we received the best care anyone could have asked for.
We had seen some improvement over the last couple of weeks but then he took a turn for the worse on Sunday evening and Monday morning his eyes gave me the permission to do the hardest thing for me but kindest one for him.
Dog people will understand what I mean.

I was with my soul mate to help him over Rainbow Bridge. He was my shadow and best friend for far too short a time but will always be by my side and in my heart. His memory will live on and I hope, I gave him the best life I could have done. He certainly did give me the best 5 years and 10 months I could have wished for. Not even mentioning his career in Obedience, where he made it to C only at the end of last year. I loved his showmanship in the Crufts and Discover Dogs Gold Good Citizens Team for two years, where he soaked up the atmosphere of the small ring but really enjoyed his times in the main arena. Thanks to Jen Wyatt and Heidi Lawrence and all support team memebers for giving us the opportunity to shine....
Sleep tight my little giant of a Welshman.


Annegret I am so sorry to hear your sad news.

Culverstone Capped February 2021 Show Cancelled  (ObedienceUK) 1/9/2020 19:24:57

From Facebook: Culverstone D.T.C are sad to have to announce that we have had to make the decision to cancel our February Capped show. Unfortunately even with how things are now they would have to change dramatically to make it safe to hold the show the way the venue set up. Even holding classes in blocks of x amount of competitors at a time wouldn't let us be sure we would cover our costs. We will hopefully see you all back at our 2-Day show next July. Jo Newman


understand, see you then.  (doghouse) 1/9/2020 20:21:30

Surrey relinquish Ticket, but plan Open next year  (ObedienceUK) 27/8/2020 16:1:33

Just wanted to let the community know that although we at Surrey DTS Obedience section have decided to relinquish our Ticket , we plan to hold an Open ( possibly Capped) show in June next year.
We are a small club these days and feel that our efforts are best channeled towards encouraging people into Obedience.
Everyone will appreciate the work that goes into holding any show, never mind a Championship one!
Our committee would like to thank everyone who has previously entered and supported our show, and especially those who have sweated and stressed over the organisation of the show - Jane Wood, Juliette Bloomfield,Karen Branthwaite, and that fantastic admin lady Rebecca Coleman.
Good luck to whoever takes on the Ticket in the future , and we hope people will still support our show in its new form.
Thanks
Caroline Heale
Secretary



Lancashire BCOS show CANCELLED  (ObedienceUK) 27/8/2020 15:24:45

It is with regret the decision has been made to cancel the Lancashire BCOS show due to be held 31st October. We have waited as long as possible but feel we will not have sufficient time to put a show together with the constantly changing advice and guidelines. We would like to thank those who had offered to judge and hopefully will be back next year.

Cataract Surgery  (jodyas) 20/8/2020 15:48:11

Our 9 year old German shepherd has been recommended for cataract surgery. Has anyone had any experience of this as we would be interested in the outcome? It seems a complicated procedure and we don't want him to have the operation unless there is a good chance of success. He can still get around at the moment but his sight is getting worse and we just want the best for him.


I do not know about dogs but it is wonderful and life changing in humans, if it works the same in dogs it would be worthwhile. Good luck.  (doghouse) 22/8/2020 7:3:9

I am part of a diabetic dog forum and one of the side effects in diabetes is cataracts and sight loss. Many of the members dogs have had the cataract surgery with a very high success rate. It is expensive and the immediate aftercare is complicated and involved but it seems to have a good success rate. Try joining diabetes UK and ask the question. They are very helpful   (glenysgrimes) 22/8/2020 10:9:1

SAD NEWS - JO SPENCER  (CarolS) 19/8/2020 13:13:58

JO SPENCER (JUNE)

It is with sadness that I am sorry to let you know that Jo passed away peacefully on Tuesday 18th August at her care home. Jo had battled with ill health for many years and was a fighter to the end although she had only been poorly for a couple of weeks.

She will be remembered for her long association with Chesvale DTC having been a trainer, Secretary, Treasurer, Chairman and was our current President. Border collies, shelties, boxers and horses were the love and focus of her life competing in agility, obedience, show jumping and boxer racing.

I will confirm details regarding funeral arrangements although attendance will be limited due to Covid.

Carol Spencer


I am sad to read that, I am of that era - my first rosette was at Chesvale.   (anntrodd) 20/8/2020 21:56:41

Sad Announcement  (dawncox76) 10/8/2020 15:14:16

Many of you will have seen this on the FB page, but for those not on FB:-
For those of you who know my Mum - Marcia Mannings-Smith - sadly her husband David, passed away last Tuesday morning. He was 80 and his health had been deteriorating over the last couple of years. He passed away peacefully in hospital following an acute, but repeated illness.
Mum is coping very well.

David was my stepdad, tho didnt come into my life until I was in my 30s - - my own Dad died aged 60, and Mum was lucky enough to go on to find happiness with David - they had 23 years together.


Give my love to your mom on her sad loss.Thinking of you both.

Chris & Tilly  (Just Tilly) 11/8/2020 11:35:5

Maybe full running order with time slots ?  (ObedienceUK) 17/8/2020 17:47:16

Shirley Budgen's post shared from facebook:

IF it was that we had a full running order with slots chosen by handler at the sign in stage (ie in the first hour), then after the statutory 1st 10 drawn I suggest this idea:

After 1st 10 the draw sheet then has TIME slots NOT number drawn slots so depending on class you could have 10 mins between each time slot going up in length of time depending on class ... handler puts their name or number in time wanted (using their own pen) so has a very obvious time to be at the ring.
Tea Breaks etc could be blocked out by judge at the start.

If no time slot filled in then they are deemed not to have ticked in/signed in to work.

Opinions - be nice 🙂 ?

Many thanks to all applicants

JERSEY DOG TRAINING ASSOCIATION  (ObedienceUK) 14/8/2020 16:23:8

The committee has made the decision to cancel the November 2020 show. While regrettable, it was the view that there were simply too many uncertainties. The position around travel is not clear. The situation with Covid-19 as the winter approaches is by no means clear, with the likelihood of greater restrictions been implemented. The club house would not be ideal to hold a show even under current restrictions, with the normal aspects such as spectators and lunches which add to the show experience having to be curtailed.

However the good news is we are already planning the shows for June & November 2021


Kind regards
Liz Keeler


Shame but good decision.   (candlewind) 15/8/2020 12:15:11

The end of the Bartonview era  (DaveB) 4/8/2020 22:35:29

Sadly, I have to report that Jean Hogan passed away earlier today following a stroke in the care home she'd recently moved into.
She and her late husband John were very well known in Obedience for many years in the 1970's, 80's and 90's both competing and judging in the South, South East and Eastern Counties.
They were Mr & Mrs Bartonview for many years.
They bred some fabulous B/C's and Shelties n their time, we still,have one of them.
Both will be sadly missed.


Very sad news. What a lovely couple they were.   (dingdongcharlie) 5/8/2020 15:16:12

crufts 2021 obedience champship  (lofty) 4/6/2020 9:40:18

most ticket shows have been cancelled I am trying to find out what the kennel club are doing about cruft's 2021 obedience .I have sent a email to them but nothing back


Early in May I posed a question on facebook:

"IF we have a Crufts in March 2021, and IF we don't have enough dogs to run the Championships, what would you recommend the Crufts Committee to do on the 2 vacant days? (Hypothetically!)"

Suggestions so far are:

1) Run the 2020 ABC final!!!!!

2) Invite back the previous years competitors

3) Have an interregional championship c for Dogs and bitches

4) Bring back Obedience World Cup under new name of international invitation if travelling is allowed 😊

5) Invite all handlers in ticket with rescue dogs

6) Invite all the dogs and bitches that got the reserve tickets

7) Best of all breeds that compete. Eg. Newfoundland down to Yorkies.

8) If the situation does clear up sooner rather than later, it'd be nice to have like a full week of shows or something with tickets every day and everyone camp the week

Plus various others.  (ObedienceUK) 4/6/2020 19:28:40

Invite the 25 top winning ticket dogs of the previous season?  (dingdongcharlie) 5/6/2020 11:17:24

At a glance inviting reserves sounds good.  (doghouse) 6/6/2020 8:37:40

Out of sight stays  (dingdongcharlie) 3/6/2020 9:45:33

What is the situation regarding out of sight stays? Looks like we won't get any shows this year, so will next year's shows not have any out of sight or is it still waiting to be discussed or awaiting KC approval? Sharon


Hi Sharon, I hope you and your Dad are keeping well.
I don't know but think they will be gone by the time we have a show to go to.

The other stay things are up to be discussed and hopefully have some amendments before being sent up to the Activities committee and then going to the Board for approval.
This is just my understanding due to once being a Liaison Rep. Stay well. Lily  (doghouse) 4/6/2020 8:28:31

It would be good to know. My youngster won out of Novice at Culverstone in Feb and I just wondered whether to bother teaching out of sight, because I haven't so far.   (dingdongcharlie) 4/6/2020 10:51:17

BIRMINGHAM & DISTRICT GSD ASSOCIATION SHOWS   (polomazda) 15/5/2020 12:37:46

It is with great sorrow that following the KC's announcement on Wednesday, myself and the committee, felt we had no alternative than to cancel our shows on 19th & 20th September. This is to safeguard the health and safety of judges, stewards and show helpers, many of those are in the vulnerable age group and like most societies rely on these stalwarts for the running of the shows.
In 38 years (this would have been my 39 year as show secretary) I have never had to cancel a show and in fact being at the end of the season have been able to help other clubs reschedule their events, unfortunately the cruel and unpredictable virus as beaten us all, not even Sandwell can help us out this year.
I have been able to inform all judges for 2020 and 21 and ticket judges for 2023 and the vast majority have been able to move their contracts to the following year. This has been a great relief to me and I am truly grateful for your co-operation.
Sorry if this as spoiled your weeks holiday in the Midlands but stay safe and we should all be able to enjoy it next year.
Best wishes from a very disappointed secretary.

Schedules page - removing Shows  (ObedienceUK) 5/4/2020 8:52:44

I normally remove Shows (and the information) for a Show the day after the show, but if I did that I would also remove the refund instructions.

So, I'm going to leave all April shows on the schedules page until the beginning of May then delete all of them. Then May shows leave until beginning of June etc.

If Show secretaries want me to update the instructions please let me know.


If Show Secretaries believe all refunds have been actioned, then let me know and I'll add a note to that effect.  (ObedienceUK) 5/4/2020 9:13:17

I've changed my mind on this. Instead I'm going to move all cancelled shows that would have already occurred onto a new SCHEDULE ARCHIVE page - you can find this under the Miscellaneous (Misc) menu item on this website.   (ObedienceUK) 16/4/2020 12:29:43

OK, I've changed my mind again.

I've moved ALL Cancelled Shows to the Schedule Archive page (in Misc menu). This leaves all the shows that are 'Potentially' still running still on the Schedules page.

Please start filling in your shows for 2021 now.  (ObedienceUK) 13/5/2020 19:50:55

Elm Park cancelled  (iappleton) 13/5/2020 16:58:32

Unfortunately we have had to cancel Elm Park's show this year due to the KC's latest announcement. It really is a shame as it was Thurrock's last year. Hopefully next year will be back with Elm Park running both days.

Keep safe everyone.

Julie



Thurrock & Elm Park cancelled  (Kath) 13/5/2020 16:26:8

Its with a very heavy heart I have to announce that after the latest KC announcement, Thurrock is cancelled 😰 Elm Park also, but Julie Appleton will add a few words herself. Its such a shame its come to this, as it was to be our last show. Id like to thank again all the judges whod agreed to judge this year (all notified already) and everyone whos judged for us in the past. Our very first Open Show was way back in 1983, so its been a long time. Tough to end like this, but better for us all to stay safe. Take care everyone, and hope to see you around the shows next year x



GSD Club of Wales 27th September - Cancelled Show  (TheWizard) 12/5/2020 13:58:56

Hopefully we look forward to seeing you all in 2021 at our Open Show on 28th March and our Championship Show on 26th September.

Keep safe

Emails for Steve White  (WendyB) 8/5/2020 4:41:41

Ive been following Steve Whites progress in fighting Covid19 through reading Rob Bints daily updates - thanks Rob!
Im so pleased to learn hes now beginning to sit up, eat and drink a little and taking steps to communicate with his family.

And I had an idea that it would be great if the Obedience Community also started to send more messages of support and encouragement to Steve... letting him know how many of us are supporting him from our homes. My first thought was to send a card... and for others to do so too... but obviously thats just not possible...

So, after messaging Rob and liaising with Steves family, weve sort of got an idea... 💡

If you know Steve personally and even if you dont, you can send a photo of yourself with your dog/dogs... heelwork in competition, a prize-winners pose, or a picture of you chilling at home... just so he can see who you are - he might recognise you or have memories of you?

And with your photo you can send him a short message... could be good wishes, or an introduction to tell him something about yourself - especially if you dont know each other yet - or introduce your dogs, new pup, etc...
You could send a funny message, an anecdote, a joke - the more variety the better! It will give Steve something to read as he begins to recover and he will know more about the lovely Obedience people whove been following his time in hospital, praying for his recovery and wishing him well.

To manage all these little photos and messages, I thought itd be a good idea if I get them sent to me.
Then I can copy and paste them together in sets using word documents, with maybe 4-6 photos and messages per page.., then if I emailed these on every time I filled two Word doc pages, that would be a manageable size to pass onto Steves family, who could then forward them so they can be printed out in hospital to give to Steve, when hes sitting up, awake and recovering but maybe getting a bit bored n fed up???

If you want to contribute to this, please email me a small size photo of yourself and dogs, together with your message - not too massive please as I need to collate them with other peoples contributions... Ill copy n paste and email onto the family.

Send with the header:-

Message for Steve

And email to me at

wendyanddella@gmail.com

PLEASE DO NOT USE PRIVATE MESSAGE, TEXT, WHATSAPP OR ADD TO THE THREADS ON FACEBOOK.... I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO KEEP TRACK AND WILL END UP LOSING PEOPLES MESSAGES

EMAIL ONLY

Dont all rush at once as Ill spread them out over the coming days, weeks... etc

Cheers folks
Wendy Birch


Please see my update on Facebook where Ive posted some sneak peeks of how the pages are looking so far...

Crufts Championships Commentary  (richardk) 5/5/2020 13:33:23

Crufts Obedience Vacancy

We are looking for somebody to take on the role of commentator for the two days of the Crufts Obedience Championships. As you will know the Championships are held on the Saturday and Sunday of Crufts at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham during March each year.

We need to fill this vacancy in readiness for the next event and would be interested to hear from anyone who would like to be considered for the role. There is no monetary reward for the post but you will be paid your travelling expenses to the NEC and will receive two nights accommodation.

If you feel you would be interested in applying please, in the first instance, send an email to champcomment@gmail.com with relevant information about you, your experience in Obedience, and details of what you feel you can bring to the role of commentator for this event.

We look forward to hearing from interested parties.

Thanks

EAST KILBRIDE CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW 6/9/20  (AMP) 2/5/2020 17:45:51

Now that both the KC & all of our judges have been notified.


EAST KILBRIDE DTC Championship Show on Sunday 6th of September 2020 is cancelled.

We waited before making the decision in the hope that we might be able to do something but it looks as if any relaxation of restrictions will come too late for us to be able to hold the show and keep everyone safe.
The safety of our members, helpers, officials & competitors is of paramount importance to us.
Fortunately we had held off producing our schedule, so no entries have been received.
All judges have been contacted and we hope that many will be able to carry over the appointment to next year.
Stay safe & we will hopefully see you all on Sunday 5th of September 2021

Show secs .. Have you informed KC of Cancellation?  (ObedienceUK) 29/4/2020 13:39:24

It would seem that not everyone has contacted the Kennel Club to say their show is cancelled. Its important to do this as soon you make the decision and let them know if you wish to transfer the licence to a later date or a refund. Bear in mind refunds will take time as the number of shows across all disciplines is over 700 and thats just to the end of June! .... Sue Garner



Anglian Acorn Shows - Cancelled  (ObedienceUK) 28/4/2020 16:31:9

Anglian Acorns Obedience Group Open Shows 2020.

Issuing this post fills me with sadness, however the health of our helpers, judges, stewards and competitors must take precedence.

Our shows which had been planned for the 15th and 16th of August 2020 have been cancelled. It was to be our first show in August having done battle with high winds and monsoon rain for the last two years in October. This year we were looking forward to the sunshine, long days, BBQ's and we even had a licensed bar booked.

All judges have been notified either by email, phonecall or on messenger.

We have had our 2021 dates confirmed as the 14th and 15th of August, with camping available from the 12th - 16th. Many of our judges are happy to carry over their appointments to 2021 - thank you. Once I know if we need further judges I will be asking for volunteers 😊

Thankfully we had restricted entries on WYD and those competitors will receive a full refund in due course. We had only received 1 paper entry at this point and that will be destroyed.

We hope you all stay safe and well and look forward to seeing you all in 2021 😊

NWKent DTC Championship & Open show weekend, 25 & 26 July is cancelled. We tried to have hope that we might be able to do something but it looks as if any relaxation of restrictions will come too late for us to be able to hold the show and keep everyone safe - so many issues to consider sadly. Fortunately WYD entries were put on hold early so very few refunds to be made and all paper entries & cheques will be destroyed. All judges will be contacted and we hope that many will be able to carry over the appointment to next year. Stay safe.

WOBURN SHOWS CANCELLED
Owing to the present Covid 19 situation, the committee has taken the decision to cancel our shows this year for all the reasons mentioned by other show committees. It is a great disappointment to us but the health and welfare of all our judges, stewards and competitors, and also our ageing committee members, are obviously our main concern. All our judges have been informed and I am grateful to those who have so far replied and are so willing to transfer their judging appointments to 2021/22. Online entries will be dealt with by WYD. I have only received 6 entries with cheques and these will be destroyed. Keep safe everyone and we shall be back in 2021 on 7/8 August.

Jean is being very stoic about it at present.


Thanks for letting us know - we don't all do Fb! I remember Andy moving 'up North' like you did and I believe they were also made welcome. Anyone who knows Jean, pass on my regards. Such sad times.   (Choxxstart) 17/4/2020 0:53:25

Thank you for letting us know , I too do not do facebook.

Downlands Obedience Group refunds etc  (Rhia) 18/4/2020 16:14:26

So instead of spending the weekend at the shows, I have instead spent today sorting out the refunds...these have now been posted to bank accounts where possible - expenses already incurred have been deducted from entry fees, but any camping and postage fees paid have been refunded in full. Just over 80% of all entry fees have been refunded.

For those of you who offered to donate some or all of the amount that could have been refunded - THANK YOU, it is very generous, and very much appreciated.

There are still 90 competitors who have not yet been in touch with me about how to refund them - please note that if you entered online, you will now have a credit in your account, that you can leave there until needed if you want. If you paid by cheque, then please remember that if I have not heard from you within 3 months of the cancellation announcement (so by 18th June 2020), then it will be assumed that you are happy to donate your refund in this manner.

For refunds - please either provide your bank account name, bank sort code and bank account number - by email to downlandsobediencegroup@gmail.com;making sure you quote the name the entries were under. PLEASE DO NOT REPLY TO THIS POST

Please keep your fingers crossed for next years event!

Lichfield and District show  (apachearrow) 14/4/2020 16:41:27

LICHFIELD AND DISTRICT SHOW 2020.

Following discussions with the show committee yesterday, we have taken the decision to cancel the 2020 obedience show.

We are disappointed, as we were all looking forward to showing off our new venue, however with the current uncertainty regarding the coronavirus situation, we decided this was the only responsible way forward.

The safety of our show team and helpers was at the forefront of our minds when we made this decision. Many of our team are in the at risk/ vunerable category and their health must come first.

We also felt we had a responsibility to our contracted judges to make a decision early and put their minds at rest, that they would not be expected to attend. All judges should have already received an email from us and thank you so much to all of you who have kindly agreed to judge next year (or the year after) instead!

We have 2 postal entries already, those people will be contacted and cheques either destroyed or returned. Online entries were stopped as the virus began to spread, so no refunds are required.

We hope everyone stays safe and well over the coming months and we hope to see you all next year. Our dates for your diaries are the 4th and 5th September 2021.



Rugby Show Refunds  (K9MadLady) 13/4/2020 14:13:12

Anyone received or know when these will be dealt with?
Show has gone off the list for "Refunds shortly" on WYD


On 6th April Dave Ray said:
"Just to confirm that all cheque's that arrived with entry forms for RUGBY DTC on 5TH MAY have been shredded. All those who entered via With Your Dog will have a refund online as soon as possible but they have a huge job so please be patient it will take many weeks for it to be completed, there will be a small admin charge for online refunds."  (ObedienceUK) 14/4/2020 10:52:48

Hatchford Brook Show  (corneroak) 13/4/2020 11:55:33

Unfortunately due to Covid 19, we have had to make the sad decision to cancel Hatchford Brook show on 1st and 2nd August this year 2020. I am sure you will all understand that even if the current restrictions are reduced, until a vaccine is available, the threat imposed by Covid 19 to judges, competitors and our club members is far too great a health risk for the show to be held this year.
I hope you all stay safe and healthy and we'll see you next year Annette





Wigton Champ & Open Cancelled  (ObedienceUK) 13/4/2020 8:29:13

Due to the uncertainty surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic the committee has taken the decision to cancel this year's shows on Sunday 30th and Monday 31st August.
This was a difficult decision however the health and safety of everyone involved must be our priority.

We hadn't published the schedule, therefore haven't taken any entries so no refunds are due.

All things being equal we will be back in 2021 on Sunday 29th and Monday 30th August.

Hope everyone remains safe in these difficult times.

Solihull Show  (jenwyatt) 5/4/2020 17:42:11

Re Solihull Open and Championship Show. 4/5th July

Hi all,
I hope you are well in this difficult situation we all find ourselves in. We have made the sad decision to cancel the show this year on 4/5th July. Because of all the uncertainty surrounding us at the moment, we felt the right decision was to cancel for the health and well being of everyone. We have a few vulnerable and at risk committee members and helpers and it does not seem right to continue with preparations for the show.
I am sure you will understand and hope you will support our decision. Our show dates for 2021 are 3/4th July.

Any paper entries I have already received will be destroyed and online entries will have a full refund.

Stay safe and hope to see you all maybe towards the latter part of 2020.

Best wishes

Jen
(Show Secretary)
