Rita Evans  (Rooney) 18/2/2019 22:1:27

It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of Rita Evans at home on Saturday 16th February, with her beloved Walter by her side. Rita was a very talented dog trainer, competing very successfully in Obedience for many years before switching to Working Trials where she was equally successful. Rita loved her dogs but it was German Shepherds that captured her heart. Her special favourite was Rudi, her all black boy who was an exceptional dog who also produced some lovely offspring. Ritas funeral will be a private family affair, in accordance with her wishes. Rest In Peace my special friend. Sandra White

REEDYFORD DTC Show 2nd March 2019   (Kymza) 18/2/2019 20:37:36

Change of judge and class start time.
We only have 1 'B' class due to lack of entries but or 2nd 'B' judge Mr Ray Wakelin has agreed to judge Pre - Beginners for us due to higher entries in what was a combined ring with Beginners and in recent years only needing 1 judge for both classes.
Pre - Beginners and Beginners both classes will now start at 9.30am and NOT as it states on our schedule

Rescue Dogs  (chris P) 12/2/2019 17:32:11

Well, after losing our beloved Chokki in October last year, then my Mum who died in January, literally 3 months to the day after loosing Chokki,our rescue from Valgrays now beginning the process of wanting to give our hearts to a new rescue dog. However, the process you have to go through, had a flying flag colours with two rescues but can understand the questions but it can be rather intrusive so through this am beginning to understand why people do go out and BUY a dog, when there are loving homes like ours, and the rescue people want more details - worse than the HMRC.
Hey ho


This is so difficult. Seen some lovely rescues on sites who are badly in need of a home, a loving, caring home, only to find out that the dog has been rehomed. Had a friend who so wanted to have a rescue and yet had to buy a dog, just because they worked a few hours a day and yet the dog would be coming with them!
Am at home all day, dog comes with me/us, sleeps in basket or kitchen or bedroom, their choice, becomes a family member - yet get quizzed on where it would sleep, what food it would be fed, how OLD are WE!!! We have National Trust land just behind us, six foot fencing, and land, and are at home!!!
One rescue said we would HAVE to feed the RAW diet - OK, I have no objections to that, BUT, so many poor dogs need a loving home and these questions are bordering on the ridiculous.
Sorry but the rescues are more intrusive than the HMRC as I said in a previous post.

SAD NEWS Mr DENNIS ASHLEY  (taipan) 3/1/2019 10:33:20

Its with regret that we have to announce that Dennis passed away peacefully last night .
The family will announce funeral arrangements in due course.
Starting in Obedience in 1949 and completed his last competetive C round in 2014 where he did fast pace that would have put to shame handlers half his age!
He was a very proud founder member and life long supporter of Lichfield & District Dog Training Society starting as trainer,committee member,chairman and president.
He achieved everything in this sport from owning and training 3 Obedience Champions and serving on numerous Kennel Club Committees and remained a member to this day.
Our thoughts are with the family
On a personal note we have lost a true and loyal family friend.
Lyn & Mick Tozer

RIP Dennis,
Loved our time at Lichfield & Dist DTS with you and that fabulous club.

God bless

Chris and Keith Wall  (krwall) 3/1/2019 11:38:41

Such very sad news to hear of the loss of Denis.
So many happy memories of the many chats we used to have with he reminiscing with relish about the good old days.
A true character both in and out of the ring and just as competitive in his later years..........a great loss to the obedience world.
RIP dear old friend

So sorry. Sandy  (sandy) 3/1/2019 16:6:23

So very sorry to hear this sad news. Dennis was a dedicated obedience man,his interest in our sport was there from it's very conception and it never wavered. His interest in our club was the same and also his interest in his beloved German shepherd dogs, although he owned and worked his border collies.They don't make them like our Dennis anymore, you will be greatly missed by many including myself, Dennis, I hope you are free to work your dogs and talk obedience with the greats who've gone before. My sincere condolences go to all the family.
Lou. X   (LouJackson) 3/1/2019 18:55:13

We have shared many a humorous time in the out of sight stays with Dennis. True dedication to obedience-wherever he was. Condolences to his family.

Help name man / Warning be aware of this man  (SandraC) 13/1/2019 17:40:55

Help name man / Warning be aware of this man
Southwater Country Park, Horsham, Sussex - Friday 11/01/19 am
A woman with a GSD and a man with a Jack Russell walking in the Southwater Country Park area, both dogs off leads, they scrapped but neither of the owners were in sight to see which dog started it. The man threw himself on the GSD and punched and kicked it violently, the GSD let go of the Jack Russell and the JR walked off. I can see the JR owner being very concerned about GSD -v- JR. Woman with GSD has obviously been asking/screaming at man to leave GSD alone, in one of the attacks on the GSD the man throws a hand either to possibly hit GSD again or fight off the woman, hit the woman and sent her flying backwards, the man continued to punch the GSD, man had hold of GSDs collar, this violent attack continued even after the two dogs had parted. Man, eventually gets up off GSD, JR is near but not near, man then goes in on GSD again violently, eventually lets GSD go. Woman is in shock about this behaviour, she has GSD standing on lead next to her, man walks off, woman says dont you ever attack my dog again, man walk back straight into her face and says What you gonna do about it. Man walked away again and came back saying heres something to get on with and kicks the GSD in the abdomen very very hard, dog is in severe pain and crying/yelping. In amongst all this JR man insists on owners name he uses phone and advises this is a police matter. GSD woman in too much shock to think about asking his name, too concerned about GSD welfare. GSD woman has phoned the Police and the RSPCA they will prosecute if we can find out who this violent JR man is. Please help!

How dreadful. Will forward this on to my friend who lives in Southwater and walks her dog there every day. Hope they catch the B******.

Solihull Show Change of Date  (jenwyatt) 9/1/2019 17:14:31

Important information regarding Solihull Open and Championship Show.

Due to a situation that has been out of my control, Solihull DTC have had to change the date of the weekend show.
The New dates are Saturday 6th July Open Obedience and Sunday 7th July Championship. (This is the second date change in as many days).

As a result of this we have lost quite a few judges due to them having other commitments. Thank you sincerely to those who are still able to judge and thank you to those who have offered to step in. Can I ask those judges who have not yet replied to email me asap.

Unfortunately Debbie Back is no longer able to judge Championship C Dog, and so we are on the look out for a replacement judge.

We also need several judges for both days. If you can please help I would be grateful.

From a very stressed Show Secretary.

Ramsden Show  (fionamears) 3/1/2019 16:5:42

Ramsden Bellhouse DTC

It is with much regret that we have to announce the cancellation of our obedience show on Saturday 8th June 2019.

Unfortunately, our lovely venue has been sold and we are unable to find a suitable site in our area which would meet our requirements.

We are all very disappointed that we can no longer hold this show but would like to thank all the judges and competitors for their support over the years.

Best wishes

Fiona Mears
Show Secretary

Day 2 and Day 3: TEST DESIGN AND PRACTICE OF JUDGING Saturday 2nd or Sunday 3rd February 2019
Two separate days covering the same subject matter have been organised as numbers are strictly limited to 12 in each seminar.
This seminar is for anyone who wishes to gain further understanding of and get hands on practical experience in planning, test design and judging of obedience tests.
The seminar is open to everyone who has attended the Rules and Regulations Seminar and passed the multiple-choice exam. Previously qualified judges exempt from the Rules and Regulations seminar are also eligible to attend.
The seminar covers key G Regulations relevant to judging, the planning, preparation, design of and then judging a Novice and Class B test.

* To book yourself onto Day 1 and then either Day 2 or Day 3, please reply to this email, stating if you want to attend both seminars and sending your home phone number and mobile phone number so I can contact you easily.

* Please tell me whether you would prefer Day 2 or Day 3 for the Test Design (if there's not enough interest to run two days, it will just be the Saturday 2nd February. There are only 12 places available on the Test Design courses so this is why I have booked two. However obviously won't run two if there aren't enough applicants to pay for the hall and expenses)

* Once I have confirmation that you would like to book a place on the seminar days, I will send you details of how to pay.

* I will also send a question form that needs to be completed and emailed back to Richard Kebble.

Priority will be given to those people who have already sent me a private message or email indicating their interest.

Please let people at your dog clubs and training groups know about these seminars, particularly those who are not on Facebook and dont use the internet much.

Please get in touch if you have any questions.

Thank you

Wendy Birch.

FREE Competitive Obedience Ring Training  (Russell) 29/12/2018 12:46:30

Sunday Ring Training Venues 2019.

From Sunday 10th February onwards:

The Venue for the training is:

Taro Leisure Centre. (Opposite side to show bit, behind Council Building)

Penns Place. Petersfield. Hampshire. GU31 4EX (Enter Penns Place Car Park, drive straight for about 150 metres then turn right just in front of house, follow road round toward council offices to park where you will see us all).

Held on the following Sundays shown below from 10.30am till 1pm ish. (If you have the ring posts/rope on a particular week please try to arrive as close to 10am as possible).

There will be 3 or 4 rings set up. Training will not be held if weather is bad. No Instruction (unless requested), just do your own thing but EVERYONE should be prepared to take a turn (10 minutes) stewarding or being in ring acting as a judge to create ring authenticity. This is brilliant training to get your dog ready for the show season and whats more...Its COMPLETELY FREE!!! So what you waiting for? Come along! People at all stages and levels of competition from Companion show level to ticket are welcome and will benefit.

We each take a turn of taking the ring ropes home one week and bringing it the next, it doesnt take hardly any room.

Everyone and anyone is welcome so please tell others and feel free to forward this on. This needs to be supported more folks otherwise it defeats the object so I am saying to you all .. Use it or lose it!!!

Some of us go to local pub for lunch and a natter after training, please join us if you wish.

Every Sunday Starting Sunday 10th February Through to End of April and Possibly a few more Sundays After, T.B.C. SEE YOU THERE!!!
