New - Directory of Competitive Obedience Training  (ObedienceUK) 26/3/2023 9:43:58

I've been giving some thought into providing a Directory for Clubs / Organisation offering some Obedience training.

I've put together a Wordpress site called Directory for Competitive Obedience Training (snappy title).

It's starting from fresh, but hopeful could be up and running quite quickly if people could add their details to the Directory.

I've linked it into the ObedienceUK website if you choose menu item Training > Directory of Clubs/Organisations.

I'm thinking all KC Registered Clubs plus anyone else offering 1-to-1 training, or group training. Any thoughts appreciated.

Arrival Time: 9-30am for 10-00am start. (Please note that NOBODY, EXCEPT ORGANISERS, WILL BE ADMITTED BEFORE 9-30am, gates will be shut and queuing on road outside is dangerous . We also need time to set up)
We will be starting with novice. Followed by beginners.

Spectators are welcome to bring their dogs but unfortunately they will not be allowed to train in the hall and please be mindful of people preparing their dog to work as space is limited.

We are very fortunate to secure this centrally located venue so please take note of the following:

You may walk your dogs on lead around the grassed tracks around the paddocks. Beyond the paddock is a public footpath across fields which could be muddy.
Please take a towel to clean your dog off before bringing into the training hall.
If anyone has barking dogs please park behind the building to keep peace with the locals.
Please clean up after your dogs, there are plenty of waste bins available.
Although you are under no obligation to stay on after your work out, this is a team event and as such we would really appreciate that you stay on to support the rest of the applicants.
Looking forward to seeing you all on the big day, dont forget to bring some pocket money to spend on the tombola which is going to be fabulous with loads of lovely prizes that people have generously donated. Above all, please enjoy the day. Lou, Lyn and Mavis.



Stop Biting  (shades) 12/11/2023 13:20:7

I would like to contact Ann Cook who wrote the little book Stop Biting with Stephanie Page. I wondered if there are any copies around new or S/H as mine has been trashed by a puppy ( I lent the book to the owner to read!! big mistake and something I don't do normally) Is it still in print, if so where can I get one? It is just a great little book for general use. Any help would be much appreciated. Or to contact me. Thanks anyone out there. Lesley

Cheeky Teeky - 20/06/2010 - 25/10/2023

Jan Knott has asked me to let everyone know that she is heartbroken 💔 having had to say goodbye to Teeky last Wednesday.
He came to Jan at just 6 weeks old and was by her side from that day until he lost his fight to cancer aged just over 13 years

Jan worked Teeky often at obedience shows and the last time was at the Haydock Day at Newbury Dog Club showing that you can't take the obedience out of an old dog. He enjoyed his day.

Teeky was a lovely boy and I know Jan has a large hole left in her house and heart. She has Acer to help her through these early days. Tears will flow but remember the good times and the smiles will return. Fly high Teeky over the bridge 🌈💔🐾🐾😢

The Novice and A classes are now full!

Plenty of space in the PreBeginner, Beginner and B classes...

Please remember that under KC rules entries are only accepted with payment of the appropriate fees, so you need to have paid by the closing date - there is a quick turnaround before the show, so no time to chase for payments etc - your entry will just be cancelled, sorry!

Sue Aldridge will know Judge 'A' Bitch
The Pre-Beginner & Beginner Judges have swapped days
Sat is now Emma Galbraith
Sun is now Allison O'Connor
To cheer you all up I have secured for both days a food wagon.
See you all soon
Rita.



Changes of Judges for Sheff GSD Sunday 15th Oct  (wildl) 26/9/2023 12:18:31

For various reasons there are several changes of Judges to advise competitors of

Prebeginner Nicky Furnell (was originally doing prebbies and beginners)

Beginner Liz Bishop as these two class entries were so big we have had to split
and Liz has very kindly stepped in this means Beginner will start at the same time as the rest of the classes

A3 - Tony Lewis again the entries have meant we required another judge

C1 - Wendy Nottingham

BIRMINGHAM & DISTRICT
GERMAN SHEPHERD DOG ASSOCIATION SEPTEMBER SHOWS


Well, that is the first weekend of the BDGSDA show behind us. A new venue and new problems to sort but with the volunteer team that worked to make it a success we all tried our hardest to make it work
I cant thank the numerous helpers enough for their efforts (too many to name and I would hate to forget anyone) and most of the competitors for their patience and understanding. The judges and stewards, the caravan and parking team, the catering team, setting up and dismantling team, the goffers and you the competitors, A BIG THANKYOU from me and Kath
Most of the feedback I have heard was a great venue, a little hard to find but that is the same for any new venue. Lessons to be learnt by all. Once the show got going, there were no significant problems that could not be overcome
I know Kath Hood is still looking after you all in the background for this show doing what she does best, trying to look after you and the show, so Kathy, hurry up and get yourself sorted as we all missed you this weekend
Again, many thanks to you all

Bryan Luckock
(General Dogsbody)

East Kilbride Dog Training Club​​

Championship Show Report

Sunday 3rd September 2023

Where to start with this years report????
I was unable to attend on the day due to personal circumstances, which added more work to our already small band of helpers. We were very fortunate to have the help of some very special people, so I will go against my usual policy and will name some of the individuals who stepped up:
To our club members, Margaret, Sheena, Anne, Maureen, Sue, Jean, Jane [first time steward!], Sandra and Joan.
To Gordon Forrest for attending as Chief Steward once again, our volunteer stewards Margaret McKenna and Colin Patrick, to Margo for covering the CC Girls scoreboard and to Kirsten for helping with the judges at lunchtime. To Carole and Ellen for kindly taking some of the weight of an absent show secretary and givers of advice.
To Kilmarnock DTC who allowed us to store our equipment on Saturday in preparation for Sunday morning.
To all of our judges and their teams.
To everyone who helped measure out, put up and collect in rings and tents, to all who stood in as scent-marker-uppers, decoy stewards, those who carried, lifted and were of general assistance THANK YOU we as a club are indebted for all of your help on the day.

We were in the middle of a heatwave AGAIN, so we had a lovely day weather wise.
Congratulations to all of our winners and to those placed at the last Scottish show of the year, and Good Luck to those qualified for Crufts 2024 and the Special ABC Final 2024.

We will be back next year on Sunday 1st of September where our CC judges will be Bill Pykett [boys] and Jan Jordan [girls].
Enjoy your dogs and see you then!

Anne Marie and all at EKDTC

Championship judges for Ditton DTC 2024  (gefion) 10/9/2023 15:16:46

Hi, we have fairly recently moved. Because of this i cannot find any record of who I have asked or who has accepted to judge the ticket classes at Ditton 2024 and 2025.I know Russell Becque is judging in 2025 but no other record at all.If anyone recalls me asking them if they would judge a ticket class next year or the year after would you please let me know?If no one comes forward then I will be on the look out for ticket judges. Thanks. RON M.



SHOW CANCELLATION - BCOS BITESIZE NUNEATON  (ObedienceUK) 6/9/2023 16:37:7

BITESIZE BCOS SHOW AT NUNEATON DTC ON SATURDAY 9TH SEPTEMBER
Due to the ridiculously warm weather planned, (now 30 degrees) we cant hold our show this Saturday. The well-being of the dogs in the ring, judges and stewards is our priority. We felt it would be inappropriate to invite dogs into the ring in this heat. We are sorry to everyone who was looking forward to the show, we are absolutely gutted.
HOWEVER! The silver lining! ☁️ we have a NEW DATE! Sunday 1st October 2023.
We will transfer all entries automatically to the shows new date. If youre unable to make this date, well be working over the next few days to look at refunds & re-opening entries for classes that may now have spaces. Please *dont* contact me for a refund at this stage, Ill need to liaise with WYD to see how they can support with this, if they can.
Please share this with everyone you know who is entered, alongside the new show date.
Kind Regards
Zoe, Mia, Louise & Karen 🐶
