Crufts Thank You  (bwianmcgovern) 13/3/2017 13:29:49

Am I going to wake up when the alarm goes off and realise that I have had yet another dream about winning Crufts? It is a recurring dream that I often have. I have had it for years, ever since I first went to Crufts as a spectator in 1981. Its the same dream every time, but with different dogs. At first with Jock, my first ever obedience dog, then with Kelsey, followed by Stevie. Next I dreamed of winning with the wonderful Dixie and this last 6 years it has been with Vito. In the dream, I am standing in the line with the top teams of the year and I hear my name getting called out. I walk forward to accept the most hallowed of obedience prizes. The feeling is indescribable. But of course, it is only and dream and I wake up and come back to reality. Did I ever think the dream would come true? No, not for one minute. I had the dream again last night, and this time it was more realistic than ever. Every detail was so convincing, then of course the alarm went offand it took me a few seconds to understand why the normal feeling of disappointment wasnt there because I was dreaming of something that had actually happened. We had won. My beautiful, lovely, gorgeous, brilliant Vito had given me my dream. We have won the most prestigious award in Obedience; the obedience championships at Crufts. And it really is a good as the say it is.

It has been a journey that has been 36 years in the making. There are so many people to thank for helping me on this journey, friends, family, judges. Too many to mention without sounding like an Oscars acceptance speech. I have been inundated with Good Luck wishes before Crufts and congratulations wishes since our win. Thank you all, I am forever in your debt.

I want to thank Alan Gresty and his fantastic team for deeming Vito worthy of this award. In all honesty, I wasnt as nervous as I thought I would be, and there are several reasons for that. I watched the round and felt that it was a round that would suit Vito. It looked as though it had been designed with flowing heelwork in mind and indeed it felt so good to work it. Alans team were just fantastic, they were welcoming and friendly, putting us at ease and they all had a warm smile for every competitor. Obedience judging and stewarding of the highest quality showing our sport at its best.

Thank you all.

Ria and Vito

Well done Ria , you & Vito were fantastic . I was wondering are you first Netherlands born person to win the title , .  (dingdongcharlie) 13/3/2017 16:9:55

Dearest Ria,

I watched every step and turn you both did , it was indeed, stunning to watch a pure team that delighted us all and entertained us at crufts.
I told you when I awarded you your first Reserve Ticket a Champion in the making and wow you have achieved the highest of honours, richly deserved, enjoy all the celebrations.
warmest of sincere congratulations and biggest of hugs.
Janet Oliver. Coriecollies.  (janet oliver) 13/3/2017 18:59:48

Hi Charlie, Yes Ria is the first person to win at Crufts in the obedience championships. She was not the first to qualify. There have been 3 others, Louise Mieras, Guus Scholten (with 2 different dogs) and Danielle de Jonge

Brian  (bwianmcgovern) 13/3/2017 20:19:59

Karen and Evie Thankyou!  (karenharrison) 17/3/2017 9:27:14

Not quite the quality of yours Brian McGovern but I am so proud of my little Evie and how hard she tried for me!
We would like to say a huge Thankyou to all the lovely people who sent us messages and a huge array on the most wonderful cards, written with the kindest messages of support.
Crufts was ,for us, a bit of a 'Baptism of Fire' especially as our 'Rock' Sandra Phillips managed to fall and break her hip a few days before, Get Well soon Sandra I forgive you😉
But now , a few days later I am beginning to appreciate what an honour it was to compete which leads me into thanking the two judges Janet Bates and Russell Becque for gifting me this opportunity.
Also Alan Gresty and his team who worked so hard to produce possibly the most beautiful round I have ever worked in ticket!!!
I hope to do some more 'personal' thankyou's ' in the near future but there are just to many to list here, safe to say the 'Dog Show ' crowd are Simply the Best 😍

Access to live crufts  (sharon10) 7/3/2017 21:54:12

I thought in previous years this site has published a link so that we can watch live streaming of Crufts activity. Does anyone know where this can be found this year?

You can watch live TV >>>>> HERE <<<<  (ObedienceUK) 8/3/2017 9:8:47

Thanks for this. At least I can see some events.
I did not realise only the main arena was available, and hoped to see the obedience champs but better than not seeing anything.  (sharon10) 8/3/2017 16:49:28

The obedience will be on crufts channel but recordings put on later. Definitely worth your joining obedienceuk Facebook too if you aren't on there  (puppies) 9/3/2017 4:38:3

Sad news BAGSD Southern Area Show 2017  (SandraC) 7/3/2017 21:57:26

Dear All,
More sad news…. BAGSD Southern Area Show 2017
As you are all aware Thames DTC are no longer going to run an Obedience Show and have relinquished their ticket status. We have known for some time that the Committee of Thames were thinking about not running a show, but I had to wait for formal notification.

I have reflected long and hard about this decision, It is with regret the BAGSD Southern Area will now also have to pull out from running a Show on Sunday 10th September 2017. We cannot possibly run a one day show. Both shows only survived as we jointly ran the shows, pooled the resourced and split the expenses. Although I’m sure we would have a good entry as competitors loved the ground, but the hiring expenses, marquee, tables, chairs etc. are too expensive for one show to bear the cost of and of course it is far more beneficial / cost effective for competitors to camp for a two day show weekend.

Firstly I would like to thank The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead Council for allowing Thames DTC and BAGSD Southern Area to run our shows on your ground at Ockwells Park, I know that this was by special permission and we have always been fully aware that you would not allow any other show of any description onto your grounds, we have been privileged to use these beautiful extensive grounds and it was only because of the local connections and of the very good working relationship with Thames especially Steve Devaney.

On that note I would like to thank Steve Devaney for all the hard work he has put into the shows over the now many years. There are too many other people to name from both shows, my friends and competitors, therefore in fear of missing someone I will leave it at that, but the people that helped year after year giving their support to BAGSD and helping me know who you are.

I would like to say thank you, a thank you is really too small to sum up my gratitude to you all, those who gave up their time to judges, steward, helped park up caravans & cars, helped on the day with many tasks including help set up both shows on Friday, helped me on the Sunday in so so many ways, taking stuff out, collecting stuff, refreshments, those that helped me in the tent, those who helped pack away at the end of the three days. I will miss your company, the friendship of you all, the competitors want for both shows to be a success, I will miss the Thames “guys” our usual “at the end of the day” glass of wine, cheers to everyone.

I would like to apologise to the judges that offered to judge for BAGSD this year, it is a great shame that I will not be able to take your up on your offer, maybe next year fingers crossed I will try to speak to you personally to apologise once we have Crufts done and dusted.

As you are all aware it is getting increasingly difficult to get judges, stewards, scoreboard stewards, stay stewards, general helpers, BUT if by some miracle, we can we will/might be able to come back next year in some form or another, BUT only if we have the help and assistance again of those that have always helped and from many many more.

We will all now have to watch this space.

Good Luck to you all at the 2017 Shows I hope to see at the shows.

Sandra Cobbold
BAGSD Southern Area Liaison and Show Secretary

Such a shame , another southern show gone , I loved both the Ockwell Park shows & have been Ch Stay Stwd at both , Lovely venue , great crowd , & lovely home made cakes ( thanks to Pat Devanay ) I will miss it .  (dingdongcharlie) 8/3/2017 8:0:56

Sad News but thank you for putting on your show with Thames for all the years .  (golden1.) 8/3/2017 8:32:36

Just a thought , have you considered joining forces with Cippenham , at the beginning of July , it`s in the Maidenhead area
  (dingdongcharlie) 8/3/2017 9:43:52

So sad for Steve and Sandra as , over the years they have given there dedication to us all.
Personal thank you.

As I have been posting here I am trying to get a show off the ground, application with the kennel club .
I do think that competitors must face the realism that venues to hire are between 1,500 to 2000 for a day, that is what is being asked 2017, then we have other expenditure, I think we must focus
And understand that the 5.00 entry day has gone .

Janet Oliver . Coriecollies   (janet oliver) 8/3/2017 12:25:18


We have 3 tickets on Saturday and 2 tickets for Sunday available. Please phone 07752411009 if interested.

ST. MARY''S DTS - EASTER SHOW  (Kenya) 8/3/2017 0:29:34

Please accept our apologies for the change of judge at our show on 17 April. Due to our judge not having the latest qualification to judge this class.
Therefore Class A will now be judged by Brian Keenan. Again the club apologises, the schedule was issued before we were made aware of the problem.

Reedyford DTC Show saturday 4th March  (Kymza) 6/3/2017 22:52:25

Reedyford DTC Show sat 4th March 2017

Can I first thank all of the committee for putting in the amount of work needed to put on this show , Edward our Chief Steward, Elaine our Stay Steward, Lynne & Judith serving the Judges & Stewards their food in the Cafeteria, Diane boiling kettles Wendy & Brenda running round doing a bit of everything and also Audrey Wilkinson & Steve Rutter who are there to help at the crack of dawn with set up the rings and anything else that needs doing early on show day and being there for advice.

I want to thank all the Judges and Stewards for giving up their day to judge for us at our new venue Croft Top Equestrian Centre, with some of you traveling quite a distance without you all we wouldnt have a show, you really do not know how much we appreciate this as a club and try to look after you all the best we can throughout your day with us.

And it goes without really saying thankyou to all the competitors who joined us on Saturday, I saw some very happy faces walking past clutching their Rosettes & Prize Cards, well done.

This venue Croft Top was a new venue to us and when I went over on Tuesday I walked into the main arena and had a OMG moment I walked across the main arena and my feet were sinking and what was the ground was half way up my boots and very uneven , I could have cried buckets, I thought what have I done , but when we arrived on Saturday morning everything was flat ,compact and looked great we got the rings up all very decent sized rings everything was coming together , there was a few little teething problems but nothing we could not sort out with one being the public address system which was sorted as soon as we could get someone to it..

The food in the cafeteria was excellent and the staff brilliant all day , and as a bonus the cafeteria overlooked both arenas .

There was a little mud outside on the track leading down to the arenas but we had heavy rain on Friday from teatime until after midnight so there was nothing we could do about that , the very large car park had some standing water in placed but the car park was big enough to avoid the puddles and as a bonus there was lots of exercise areas for anyone wanting to let their dogs have a good run around there was a few gripes about the mud and the track leading to the arenas

We had a bit of a cock up with stay times, I hold my hand up as I somehow managed to put the wrong stay time notice up by the table where you wrote out your ring numbers, as soon as this was spotted it was rectified and this was well before judging commenced , the stay times on the score sheets were correct.
Yes there was a complaint and it was dealt with by our Chief Steward and sorted out on the day, The person who made the complaint did NOT want it going any further than logging in the incident book , nothing at all like some of the rumors that I have heard .there you have it right from the horses mouth.

Just one last thing I was asked to pass on by the staff at Croft Top they could not get over how well behaved all the dogs were at our show and asked me to pass on their compliments.

Good Luck to all competing at Crufts next weekend

All at Reedyford look forward to see you all at our next show on Saturday 2nd December.

BIRMINGHAM SHOWS-SEPT  (polomazda) 3/3/2017 10:54:8

Yes the shows are on. My shows have been on the schedule page for about a week now (16th & 17th Sept). The caravan charges have been put up (out of our control- council trying to make more money). It will be the same as Lichfield £8/night (7 nights £53). Over a week it is extra £10 i.e.£1.43/night extra. Sandwell Valley also has parking charges £2/day but after a long battle I have managed to squash this. There will be NO PARKING CHARGES BUT YOU MUST PARK ON THE SHOW VENUE (not on the tarmac car parks).I spoke to a few people during negotiations and all preferred to pay a little more and remain at the same venue, which everyone seems to love. Anyone concerned you can always phone me on 01922 457615 or 07714159712. I will also be at Crufts.

Thank you Kathy! Well worth the little extra for camping - it is such a lovely relaxing holiday in perfect surroundings.  (SueReed) 3/3/2017 13:13:3

Denim Rutherford  (EmmaL) 15/2/2017 21:40:3

Posted on behalf of Linda Rutherford.

I would just like to announce Denim Rutherford's retirement. She has took me & Derek to places we never new existed.
Many a happy journey on our way home from a show.
She is a phenomenal little dog, a true superstar .
Just because she can still win tickets doesn't make it right to still work her .
It kills me to call it a day, but I must put her first. She is 11 now & I can ask no more of her.
I pray to god she has many years left with me. I will never have another with such character.
She only ever had eyes for me & her dad.

Love you forever and thank you for all the precious happy memories you have given me. X

Denim has been one of my favourite little dogs I have enjoyed watching her work and it was such a pleasure to be able to award one of her many tickets. Denim and Linda have been a force to be reckoned with over the last few years a true partnership. Although it is always sad when such a working partnership has to end the memories of the journey that they have shared will remain. I hope you will continue to share her retirement and enjoy just being together for a long time.
Lyn & Mick.  (taipan) 16/2/2017 22:2:14

Hampshire Rally 1st May 2017 - C Steward Required  (Poppydog1) 13/2/2017 10:29:44

The Hampshire Rally has been running for over 30 years. Eight Registered Dog Clubs will organise and run the event; Andover, Winchester, Petersfield, Haslemere, Eastleigh, Basingstoke, Newbury and West End.

The aim is for the Clubs to meet for a dog obedience show with the aim of raising as much money as possible for the nominated charity, decided by each club in turn.

The next event will take place at War Memorial Park, London Road, Basingstoke on Monday 1st May 2017. We have most Judges and stewards in place but are still in need someone that could Steward for a Class C Judge. Can you please let me know if you are able to assist.

Regards Alan Johnson (for Haslemere & District Dog Training Club)

I could do that if you are still stuck. Eunice Pearson (Billingshurst DTC)  (eunice) 15/2/2017 11:35:43

Hello Eunice, it would be fantastic if you could help us out. Can you please email me on: and I will give you the details. Regards Alan  (Poppydog1) 16/2/2017 18:55:29

BCOS .....WE HAVE A SHOW!  (trishajones) 16/2/2017 18:11:1

As you all know, the BCOS show nearly didn't happen, but thanks to the tenacity of the BCOS team.....YOU STARS! and Woodgreen Animal Shelter, a new venue was found and booked. Unfortunately it is more expensive, and incredibly the original venue has very kindly agreed to stump up the shortfall. Woodgreen is an animal shelter that does fantastic work for homeless and abused animals, so it seems a great pity they they will be out of pocket. It would be marvellous if we could all dig deep and contribute as much as we can afford to hopefully pay back some of that generous gesture. To that end, I ask you all if you could help out and lessen the blow to Woodgreen. So if you see me on Saturday shaking my tin, please give generously. Many thanks in anticipation! Trish

Judging question  (wildl) 5/2/2017 17:40:40

Question to those who judge, if say in classes up to novice on the recall a handler turned to face their dog on command but had one leg slightly in front of the other when calling the dog in would you mark if the dog was straight on the front sit albeit with one leg giving guidance. I have gone through g regs and I cant see this senorio being mentioned or maybe I have just missed it. Comments from judges as to how they would mark would or wouldn't mark would be appreciated.

Yes I would mark perhaps 1/2 but depending how far one leg was in front of the other   (choystean) 5/2/2017 19:16:27

Yes I'd mark it, 1/2 maybe more depending on how pronounced it was.  (Waggy) 5/2/2017 19:18:0

Unless it was *really* forward I would not mark it in lower classes - but would mention to the handler that it was not a good thing to keep doing .. but would mark it in Novice upwards .. amount depends on how forward and if it aided the dog to present.   (Whyso) 5/2/2017 19:23:0

From 2017 G regs

Pre beginner, Beginner and Novice - with the exception of the sit or down stay exercises,the competitor shall be allowed to use as many commands and signals as necessary.
  (krwall) 5/2/2017 19:26:11

Gosh yes Keith, never thought about it like that! Good poser Linda! Yeah ok, in Pre-B and beginner wouldn't mark it but would do what Shirley suggested! But novice, yes cos they should know better!  (PennyKH) 7/2/2017 23:19:46

Thanks for comments   (wildl) 8/2/2017 13:40:36

As they would be doing a straight recall and not an angled one, I don't really see the benefit of doing this, unless they know that their dog always does an arc out to the same side when it runs towards you.

Sharon  (dingdongcharlie) 13/2/2017 12:46:3

Just curious to know Penny, if G regs say that any comments and signals are allowed in PreBs to Novice, would you mark it in Novice? I don't do it, was just wondering :) Jac  (Wizzpop) 14/2/2017 11:15:46

Bryan Martin  (candlewind) 10/2/2017 17:52:12

It is with sadness we announce the death of Bryan Martin (Bromsgrove) on Monday February 6th after a short illness, aged 85.
Many of you may remember Bryan with his friend the late Gerry Troth around the Midland Shows. Bryan worked several dogs after starting with his Cocker Spaniel Sheba. He may be best remembered for his flat cap and working his Border Collies Batham and Watney in C and Ticket and most recently Duffy.
Further information regarding funeral arrangements will be forthcoming.
Brenda Troth, Gerard Paisley, Jane Sutherland

Sad news. Bless Brian, always had a soft spot for him. His Duffy was my Saffi's sister. We would chat about them and compare notes! I remember him taking the front seat of his car out when Duffy got old so that she could get in and out of the car easier! God bless you Brian. RIP love Carol xx  (Carol C) 10/2/2017 22:12:40

So sorry. Great character. Sandy  (sandy) 11/2/2017 8:1:30

So sorry to hear this, god bless, Bryan xx  (janetplant) 11/2/2017 10:35:42
