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.



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.

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.
  (Kairobea) 14/9/2017 15:21:5

3rd of June might still be Cheshire, no decision will be made on this until after the weekend show on 7th and 8th of October 2017. Sandra  (Rooney) 15/9/2017 11:19:17

Spalding is on the 15th July 2018 - we have applied for our dayes up to 2020 so the KC should know!  (Debbax) 18/9/2017 23:33:44

*dates  (Debbax) 18/9/2017 23:35:56

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

Thanx Janice it's 8th April next year  (Dyane) 11/10/2017 19:24:30

trying to contact you Dyane but your email is bouncing back -
have you changed it?  (abenoist) 12/10/2017 15:3:48

Nope still the same, just emailed you  (Dyane) 12/10/2017 19:50:10

not got anything - its girlsplusone@yahoo.com  (abenoist) 13/10/2017 8:34:55

Lol sent it to the e mail on here oops resent  (Dyane) 13/10/2017 12:41:6

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

Fingers crossed for 15th April awaiting racecourse reply  (Dyane) 24/10/2017 17:16:42

Fingers crossed for 15th April awaiting racecourse reply  (Dyane) 24/10/2017 17:17:19

Right so Coseley now on 15th April, so what about 22nd or 29th April two free dates I think for the ground  (Dyane) 28/10/2017 17:21:56

After much contemplation we have decided on 15th April as other dates clash with events on the Racecourse  (Dyane) 8/11/2017 14:36:52

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: hddtc@yahoo.co.uk
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 shirleyhayward89@gmail.com.

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

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

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

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!

Julie

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

ElmRock Weekend   (Kath) 2/10/2017 12:23:8

ElmRock we smashed it! Another great weekend done and dusted. Just a few thank yous, starting with the ladies on the gate Friday afternoon. Massive thanks to Vanda, Teresa, Linda and Gaynor. Thanks also to the ring putter uppers gang, especially Dave Gillett who came along to help even though he was judging the ticket on Sunday. Huge thanks to all the Thurrock judges and stewards, especially those who stepped in to steward at the last minute - Jan Cook, Val Kimber and Leigha Lacey. Thanks also to the score board stewards who answered my plea on Facebook - Samantha Ragus, Alison Shaw and Kay Griffiths. And a very grateful thank you to Fran Godfrey who arranged decoy stewards for every class. This was so helpful as we always struggle to find decoys when everyone's out on the field taking down the rings etc. So thanks again Fran and can I book you for next year, and huge thanks to said decoy stewards 👍 Thanks to Rod White and all his stay team helpers, especially Trevor Curtis who comes for the day to help, and to Charlie Webley who stood in for the lunchtime slot, Steve & Sue Parmiter, Julie Enright (who also decoyed) and everyone else who helped with stays. Massive thanks to Richard Kebble for being our extremely efficient Chief Steward and hope we can book you for next year again? 😄 And to all of Team ElmRock - we certainly ROCK! Thank you everyone. Massive congrats to Ian Appleton & Merlot on winning A and what can I say about the joint ElmRock ticket winners - Mary & Lyric and Dot & Zyco - you ladies rock as well 👍 Good luck at Crufts next year xx

Steward Wanted for Elm Park  (iappleton) 28/9/2017 23:36:58

Hi All, looks like we have carelessly lost an 'A' Steward for the Elm Park show on Saturday, so if any kind soul would like to volunteer they could spend a pleasant day with Steve Delaney guiding handlers round an 'A' ring. If that dosen't get you rushing to the phone maybe a bacon roll and a nice lunch followed by tea and cakes will. Thanks Julie.

IT IS WITH GREAT SADNESS THAT SANDY HAS DECIDED TO RETIRE FROM JUDGING ,
I AM SURE THAT YOU WILL ALL AGREE WITH ME WHAT A FANTASTIC JUDGE OVER THE YEARS SHE HAS BEEN AND GIVEN SO MUCH TO OUR SPORT.
SANDY HAS AWARDED MANY TICKETS TO NEW COMERS AND AWARDED MANY TICKETS TO OTHERS MAKING THEIR DOGS CHAMPIONS.
HER FAIRNESS , HONESTY , AND DEDICATION TO OUR SPORT HAS BEEN AMAZING.
JUDGING CRUFTS INDEED WAS A GREAT HONOUR AND A BRILLIANT JOB SHE MADE OF IT.

YOU WILL BE TRULY MISSED , IN THE JUDGING RING.

JANET OLIVER. CORIECOLLIES.


Oh How lovely. Thank you Janet x  (sandy) 27/9/2017 7:37:19

B.Ham & District GSD Assoc. - Secretary''s Report  (polomazda) 25/9/2017 17:34:51

Everything went well, except for the weather, especially when packing up, but these shows could not be held without the help from the competitors as we are only a small band of members.
Many.many thanks to everyone who helped, from the marking of the rings, marking out of camping areas, manning the gate, controlling the camping in the various areas, setting up and dismantling of the rings and tents and to all who helped with stays. There are too many to name but you all know who you are, just hope I can rely on you next year.
One person who I must name and that is Peter Height, thank you for standing in to judge the ticket when Ann was taken ill, she was really upset to have to stop judging but you did a great job under your personal circumstance, Ann, your wife, would have been proud of you - you have a hidden strength.
Thanks to every camper for being so well behaved throughout the week and not causing any problems with the council and general public, (not all the public like us being there).

Well done to the 4 ticket winners I will be there at Crufts to support you.

Kathy Hood


Fantastic shows again Kathy. This must be THE highlight of the season for many of us.
I realise how much hard work is involved behind the scenes.
The atmosphere was wonderful again.
How lucky are we to share such a wonderful sport.
Thank you.

Report posted Sandy



WOODMAN Please support, entries low  (quilters1) 21/9/2017 5:57:13

very dissapointed that the entries for this Open show are poor, unless theer are some late entries it is unlikely that we will proceed with doing further single Open classes for B or C .
If you have an A/novice dog and have NOT entered, please let us know why,

Woodman show organisers


Would of entered but week days very difficult to find cover for work. sorry  (chay) 21/9/2017 8:16:26

Sorry travelling from Essex on the M25 on a week day and not being allowed in until 8.30 makes your show undoable. This is from 5 of us in Essex. Wish you luck.  (jan.dobriach) 22/9/2017 12:54:27

If it had a novice I would have entered it is a long way to go for a training my a myra  (myra) 22/9/2017 21:37:31

I have entered my Novice Dog in 'A' just to do a training round, firstly because I do not live too far from the venue and secondly I wanted to support your idea.
Personally though I think that had you had Novice and 'A' classes mixed dog and bitch then you would have drawn more entries as I am sure there are many that would not travel that far just to do one class. Just my opinion and hope you get enough entries to make it viable.  (REMMIE) 22/9/2017 22:51:35
