Obedience UK fund  (agilitydog) 27/11/2021 6:22:37

Hi, as many of the older members of this site will know I took over the fund when Jane Ellens husband said he could no longer do it. For those that don't know, Jane started the fund to help people in Obedience competition who where struggling to pay vet bills for instance or anything to do with dogs really. Jane sadly passed away quite suddenly and her husband took over her roll. After a couple of months he decided that it wasn't the job for him and asked for someone else to come forward and take it over. No-one offered so I took it on. To cut this short there is now only one contributor to the fund and I am thinking of closing it unless of course someone else would like to take it on? There is a fair amount of money in the fund and if it closes and the previous donators to the fund agree I will transfer all the monies across to Dave Ray for the Defibrillator fund. Thoughts please!

Message from Steve Rutter  (ObedienceUK) 14/11/2021 12:14:44

Dear All,

As many of you will be aware I had an health episode earlier this year which has left me incapacitated and being unable to live my life as before. I have therefore sadly had to withdraw from my role as assistant chief obedience steward at Crufts dog show, this was a very painful decision to make but ultimately the correct one.
It has been a pleasure to work with Richard Kebble and Roy Page, and I am absolutely devastated at not being able to progress to Chief Steward, or continue working with and learning from the Chief Stewards, chief Steward and I wish Richard all the best for future Crufts shows and in finding the right replacement for me. (Im Sure you will).

I am aiming to attend Crufts, so see you all there.

Good luck to everyone in Obedience and remember it's only a hobby.

Best Wishes Steve Rutter.

BecaWe Love Obedience   (K8) 7/11/2021 19:53:22

Posted On Behalf of Michael

I am writing this as the Chair of the Obedience Liaison Council and also with a very personal view. The following two sayings are well known and have certainly been used on many occasions before this; however Im going to quote them again;
I have a dream
If you build it they will come.

As someone who loves dogs and dog sports and has competed in obedience since 1970, I joined the original Belfast DTC in 1969 then joined Lisburn & District DTC in 1979 when I moved to Lisburn. I have also been competing in Agility since the early 1980s, Ive been the Northern Ireland Obedience Rep for some 36 years. I have watched reps come and go some good for our sport some not so much.
I think most of us who compete, judge, steward, help out at clubs/show and who organise shows are very aware that our beloved sport is at a crossroads.
Geographically our sport has been divided most noticeably during the great stay debate do they stay or do they go. The outcome did not please everyone and it saddens me to read some of the comments on Social Media for those who made it about winning and losing. The facts are that the decision has been made and we must move on for the good of our chosen sport.
A few of us have gotten together to discuss how we could help motivate people to take our sport forward. Myself, Carole Patrick, Debra Lavender, Kathy Russell, Bev Smith and the KCs very own Heidi Lawrence having been having online calls to discuss what we could do to help move things forward in obedience. We started by making comparisons with another fabulous dog sport Agility; concentrating on the excellent and very popular KC International Agility Festival also the numerous agility finals that are hosted at Crufts, Olympia, Dogs In Need, Scottish Dog of the Year, Irish Agility Dog of the Year and all the qualifying heats that go hand in hand to reach the finals.
As a group we are excited in hoping/thinking that have an Obedience Festival could be the start of something big on the obedience calendar. Looking forward to 2023 starting small (just like the KC Agility Festival did) with a two day event hoping that going forward it could be a three day event or perhaps even a four day festival. Maybe even an International Obedience Festival. Running some classes that would perhaps tempt over our fellow competitors from the continent the way the Crufts World Cup did.
Currently we are looking to source venues to get costs in order for us to complete a Business Case as to how we can finance this venture. We are aware that the KC are not in a position to help fund this so we really need to attract some sponsors and using the KC name may indeed open some doors in that department.
What we are looking for from the obedience fraternity is some buy in, volunteers, ideas and also gauge interest in the idea.
So my ask is if any of you out there think you could help/advise. If you have any expertise in running events (doesnt have to be a dog show) and think you could help.
May I ask that you contact your Area Representative giving your name and details of any help you would be prepared to give.

We also discussed running qualifiers for a possible Dog Of The Year in Beginners C. With qualifiers being held at Open/Championship shows throughout 2022 and all qualifiers going forward to the final at the KC Obedience Festival. Also we would look at applying to gain Championship Status for at least one day also Home International Competition for England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. We are of course open to all reasonable ideas and all help will be gladly received.
I know we can do this and it will help bring us all together and the bonus is we get a brilliant new event to go to with our wonderful dogs.

BIRMINGHAM & DISTRICT GSD ASSOCIATION SHOWS   (polomazda) 27/10/2021 12:0:6

After a lot of hard work, meetings with Sandwell Council, Councillors and West Bromwich MP and the filing of 3 formal complaints against the Council I have had some success.
I have now received written confirmation that my dates 17th & 18th Sept and 24th & 25th Sept 2022 will be held and not given to any other organiser.
BAGSD have yet to decide whether they will run both CH and Open shows, CH only or just the 2 Ticket shows.
After many requests from competitors not to allow the week at Sandwell to fold I have decided that my retirement has been very short lived and will ensure that 4 shows will be held on these dates. The worst scenario for me would be - I will be running 2 Ch shows and 2 Open shows and hosting the ticket classes.
If I have to get judges for 4 shows I will need offers of help. I am doing this for you all, please support me. I hope that judges contracted for the cancelled 2021 shows will willingly transfer to next year. I will be in contact shortly.
Once I know what BAGSD have decided I will keep everyone updated.
From an ex-retired Secretary to now a stupid Secretary

Clarification over booking in for the show, as it is now a full running order, rather than cohorts/timeslots. KC rules state:

In classes where a fullrunning order has been made, competitors must book in on arrival at the show or by 12 noon, whichever is the earlier.

So anyone drawn in the morning just needs to make sure they are there for their running order, and those drawn in the afternoon need to arrive and book in by noon, please (although can be earlier)!  (Rhia) 16/10/2021 16:43:45

Obedience regulation amendments announced: Stays are to be removed as of 1 January 2022
Following discussions by the Obedience Liaison Council and consultation with the obedience community, The Kennel Club Board has approved a number of regulation amendments under the terms of which all stays will be removed from the list of exercises for obedience with effect from 1 January 2022. Stays are currently suspended until 31 December 2021 as part of the Covid-19 regulation amendments.
Consideration of this matter has been ongoing for some time. Recommendations by the Obedience Liaison Council and the Activities Committee were not made lightly and were submitted to the Board only after careful consideration, as the removal of stays represents the most significant change to Obedience regulations in a long time.
The suspension of stays during Covid-19 had been well received and the benefits it provided to the smooth running of shows was noted during discussions. Additionally, it was hoped that new competitors would be more willing to try obedience without the stays as an exercise.
It had been discussed whether it was necessary to include an alternative control exercise in place of the stay exercise; however, it was decided that there were enough elements of control included as an inherent part of other exercises, therefore a new and separate exercise would not be needed.
These latest amendments to the obedience regulations are mostly concerned with removing references to stays. However, due to the removal of stays the number of marks available have been amended.
Marks allocated
The marks required to be awarded Obedience Certificates have been adjusted from 300 to 230 to account for the removal of the stay exercise. Therefore, the number of points needed to qualify for the Obedience Certificate is now 215.
The total marks available for each class have also been adjusted and are now as follows:
Introductory: 30
Pre-Beginners: 45
Beginners: 70
Novice: 70
Class A: 110
Class B: 170
Class C: 230
Please note the relevant amendments to the obedience regulations will be published on The Kennel Club website in due course. All references to stays will also be deleted.

Excellent, save us a lot of hassle  (NBBAGSD) 14/10/2021 7:32:16

Elm Park''s Championship shows  (iappleton) 5/10/2021 17:26:18

What a weekend! We had the fuel problems, the A13 was closed for roadworks, making the traffic worse than normal. If that wasnt enough the weather threw everything at us, sunshine, torrential rain, wind and what seemed to be a mini tornado. To top it all, our suppliers of the toilets did not finish delivering the toilets until about 7.00 ish as their wagons engine blew up and they had to use a car and trailer to deliver 2 toilets at a time. Despite all of this, it was a great show.
Thanks to everyone who turned up on Friday to help Ian and I with the rings, signs, tables, chairs and unloading everything. John and Kath Westell, Rod and Liz White, Sue Starr, Dave Gillet, Jan Witham, Julia Tuck, Kim Ford, Julie Enright, Paula Kenny, Les Tolliday, Mick and Lyn Johnson and Colin Sutton, many hands make light work.
Thanks to our Friday guards at the gate, Vanda Fitter, Linda Plows, Gaynor Taylor and Les Willis and to Malcolm Hanlon and Les Willis for manning the gate during the busy periods over the weekend.
Thanks to all our judges and stewards for giving up their day, sorry the weather was so bad but despite all my e mails, phone calls, text messages, the gods werent kind to us. Thanks to the Friday crew plus Nicola, Claire, Sandra, Ed, Sarah and Sue for coming along and helping in the marquee at the weekend. Thanks to Simon for helping with the tables and chairs on Sunday.
Thanks again to Richard Kebble for being Chief Steward for the weekend, much appreciated.
Apologies to Jane Bint and her team who had to stand to drink their afternoon tea and cakes as the tables and chairs man turned up early!
Congratulations to our ticket winners, on Saturday Dot Watts and Ob Ch Ziggdan Zyco winning the dog ticket and Anne Northfield and Moshanta Made for Me winning the girls ticket. On Sunday Trish Jones and Ob Ch Longwaves Cloudy Sky winning the dog ticket and Kamal Fernandez and Firetouch Super Girlie (owned by Val Venables) winning the girls ticket. Congratulations to all the other competitors who went home with a red rosette at our weekend.
If I have forgotten anyone, I am sorry. See you all next year.

Elm Park Show  (iappleton) 25/9/2021 9:18:58

Hi Everyone coming to Elm Park Show next weekend, please allow extra travelling time on Saturday and Sunday. Thurrock Council have kindly announced that the A13 will be closed in both directions from the A1014 ( Stanford-le-Hope ) to the A128 ( Orsett Cock ) junctions.
These closures will be in force from 9pm on Friday 1st October till 5am on Monday 4th October.
If coming from the A127 you can still go down the A128 to the Orsett Cock roundabout or you could take B188, first right after the Dog and Partridge Pub on the A128, then left at the junction to the show ground.
If coming from Southend you can turn off the A13 onto the A1013 at the Stanford-le-Hope junction which will bring you to the Orsett Cock roundabout.
If coming from the M25 you can take Junction 31 ( Lakeside ) on to the A1306 then pick up the A1013 at the next roundabout and follow that to the little bridge ( signed Orsett Hospital ) that takes you to the show ground.
Those coming on Friday should miss the problems, sorry for all this but its out of our control. We look forward to seeing you all next weekend. Thanks Julie.

Andover & District Dog Training Society  (mb) 22/9/2021 14:58:24

It is with great regret that I have to announce that Andover & District Dog Training Society will shortly close.

Reduced membership and a lack of people willing to take on the running of the club, and following a Special General Meeting it was concluded that the best option was to close the club. As some of you will know the club has been in existence since 1968 and has seen many years of success but times are changing and with less and less people interested in competitive obedience we had to cancel our Open Show for the third year. So we are where we are!

Shirley (Chairman)

So sad to hear this. One of my favourite shows of the year.
Sharon   (dingdongcharlie) 23/9/2021 7:46:37

Oh Shirley what a shame! You would think that, with all these puppies being bought during lockdown, people would welcome being able to come to a club for some help with training and socializing. I guess there are just too many individual one-to-one 'trainers' out there and people are happy to pay them rather than join a group and socialize with other like minded owners. We'll miss your lovely show, there was always a calm and happy atmosphere. What a shame!

East Kilbride Show - Show Secretary Report   (AMP) 15/9/2021 10:32:31

This was the first of a Scottish Triple of Championship Shows in 2 weekends & it both started & ended the contribution to the show calendar for our part of the world.

We were given the chance of running a no frills show after a relaxation of the COVID-19 restrictions, and we grabbed it with very little time to spare.

No catering, no access to the building apart from toilets- these were the things we had to accept if we wanted to proceed.
So HUGE thanks to our judges, most of whom were in a position to fulfil their 2020 obligation, and to those who stepped in to fill the gaps.
Thank you for understanding & accepting the restrictions brought about by these strange times.
To the stewards and scribes- again thank you all for giving up your day so that others could compete.

To our club members, their families & to our support team of Burnbank DTC, your help on the field is always appreciated- a mere thank you seems inadequate.

We were blessed with a fine day, sunshine included so what more could you ask for?
It was fabulous to see so many smiles & there was a definite feel - good atmosphere around the rings.
Congratulations to all of our winners & to those placed on the day.
Thank you all for the lovely comments about our show- it really does make the work worthwhile.
We will be back next year on Sunday 4th of September 2022.
Good luck to everyone for the rest of the season, stay safe & we hope to see you all then.
Anne Marie & EKDTC.

Worcester DTC show - thanks   (louise21) 11/9/2021 16:0:9

A great big thank you to all our lovely judges, stewards, members, helpers and competitors who made our show a great success.
Weather was bearable - not too hot and no rain 🤣🤣 but great for the dogs.
Thanks to Ruth Lewis and Loughborough who ran their ticket classes on Friday enabling 2 more people to qualify for Crufts.

Sadly there's always one who spoils it for everyone else.
Not so many thanks to the vile individual who emptied the contents of their toilet onto the grass under the skip. Unfortunately it wasn't just liquid waste either 😡😡
You must have seen that the Elsan was full (toilet company didn't service/empty on Sunday as arranged) and rather than do what any normal person would do (take it home), you decided to put it where you thought no one would see it.

Luckily, I always do a last walk round the venue once everything has gone to check nothing has been left behind. As you can imagine, I was furious and absolutely disgusted to find this and have to clean it up with poo bags as that's all I had handy 🤢🤢🤮🤮
To add to my delight, I had to then put it in my van and take it home to dispose of properly.
I say luckily, as if the venue owner had found this I doubt we would ever been welcomed back!

If anyone knows who did this please PM me as I would love to know and ban them from ever entering our show again.

Glad it's all over this year and looking forward to seeing you all again on Sunday 28th (open) and Monday 29th (champ) August 2022.
