Culverstone Open & Champ shows  (Dippi) 22/6/2017 19:38:4

After all the problems earlier this year starting with finding the gypsies had moved in next door followed by the lack of food available & how it was offered we are looking hard for a new venue yet again. We believe that we have managed to find a place that will suit all our needs & the competitors.
We will make an announcement of where it is as soon as we have finalised all the details. Jo


Well done Jo , the breakfasts were worse than Morrisons .
  (dingdongcharlie) 22/6/2017 22:32:35

Thankyou all for persevering and not caving in so another show is lost!!! Just a thought but if your prospective venue is not feasible, how about the new(ish) Ditton venue.... Ashford Rugby Club Kinneys Lane, off Canterbury Road Kennington Ashford TN24 9QB. It has everything you could wish for, plus a great clubhouse which overlooks the rings and loads of room for parking. Not sure how it would work for you distance wise, but worth a try maybe! Trish

Open Day, Rob Summerfield will now judge A Dog Part 1, in place of John. Mark Herrits is unable to judge this year and Min Partner will now judge B Dog Part 1, thank you Min. There is only one part of C Dog and Anna Herzog is happy to judge the whole class rather than have the class split. Jenny Gould now has the day off 😊
Champ day an exceptional entry for Beginner D&B so Jenny Harknett -Part 1 and Pat Faulkner has agreed to judge Part 2. There are only 2 parts to Novice Dog each day.

Running Order YKC

There is no running order for YKC, if competitors please come to ring at start of day, judging is 10 am. We will work Basic Class, then Novice and followed by High Flyers. Stays will be at end of each class in YKC ring I assume, any change to this will be announced at ring. If competitors have entered Open Show classes, could they please let me know as those stay times will take priority, so we can work around these.
See you all on Sunday and remember to keep yourselves and your dogs cool and hydrated at all times, it's going to be HOT......

You need to qualify to take part in this glittering end of year event, celebrating obedience with classes for pre beginners up to C, this is your chance to don your glad rags and show off your fabulous dogs to compete for this years class crowns - you could be the 2017 class Champion!!!

You get points for places from 1st - 6th at all open and champs shows within this years qualifying period, which is 4 October 2016 2 October 2017.

I fully appreciate this may be a bit of a long shot but I thought I'd give it a go. Yesterday my collie lost his toy in the exercise field (I think) and I was hoping someone one might have picked it up. It's a dark red rubber tube with a nylon rope through the middle. He's had it for 5 years and he carries it with him everywhere so needless to say he's a bit lost today! If anyone has happened to find it please could you let me know and I'll send you a stamped address Jiffy bag!

P.S. I've not used this site before so I do hope my request isn't too inappropriate.

Fire Extinguishers  (speath) 5/6/2017 22:16:36

Can anyone tell me what the rules/law is regarding fire extinguishers at open dog shows please.


The KC do not state the requirments but you need to check with your puplic liability insurance and your own risk assessement which the KC do require. I always think it best to have at least 2 fire points depending on the size of show. 2 fire extinguishers + bucket water or sand and clear signage.
  (doghouse) 6/6/2017 8:20:18

Many thanks lillian  (speath) 6/6/2017 9:48:50

Thank you Lilian on Sunday at Petersfield for all your kindness and help and advise on the many questions I asked you.
We are indeed very lucky to have somebody like you that gives up so much time to our sport , and your wisdom and advise on handling also delicate matters.

Janet Oliver. Coriecollies.  (janet oliver) 6/6/2017 12:18:36

we at Culverstone have just had all our fire extinguishers put through their annual safety checks ahead of our recent shows to ensure that they were all tested within the last 12 months and where necessary the cartridges were replaced. Clearly if their are caravans and camper vans attending the show then they ought to be checked by the vehicle owners to ensure that they comply with their own insurers requirements etc. Also you need to consider that there are different types of extinguisher ie water, foam, powder and perhaps you should ensure that you have a couple of each

Hope this helps Mikem  (kyledon) 6/6/2017 13:3:32

We also have our own fire blanket.  (pspencer) 6/6/2017 19:7:17

Dislocated toe on back leg  (Innominate ) 6/6/2017 16:18:37

Has anyone experienced a dog with a dislocated toe and if so do they have any advice? I have seen two different vets, the first one bandaged it but so poorly that after three minutes of being at home the bandage fell off, not pulled off. Seen a second vet today who has stabilized the toe and bandaged it well. However, he says it has to stay bandaged for a month, with the bandage changed weekly.The dog is fully insured so expense is not a problem.Thank you

Waldridge Fell Show  (sorcha) 31/5/2017 9:40:13

A huge pat on the back to Jenny and Terry and all the waldridge fell members, Also not forgetting the Wigton people, Pat Wilson Jim and Angela Bragg and far to many others to name, Who enabled this 3 day show to retake place, A big job to step up and take over the reins , But Jenny you did it! .AAnd getting an Excellent rating from the KC Rep. Well that must have put the icing on the cake. The whole of the show, just cruised along, Fabulous Venue lovely walks, and the weather overall was fantastic, The atmosphere was great I never heard a negetive comment, Can't wait for next year, well done team and also a mention to Jackie muir who was up and down the field like an Exocet missile seeing to everyone needs, Keep,it Waldridge what a great show,🍾🍾🍾


Thank you all for a great show. Steve and Holly.  (MEGGYMOO) 31/5/2017 20:47:42

WAKE UP   (janet oliver) 2/6/2017 11:26:49

IT IS WITH GREAT SADNESS THAT I HAVE HEARD THAT FINDON ONLY HAVE 300 ENTRIES THIS YEAR AND MAY NOT BE ABLE TO BREAK EVEN WITH THEIR OUTGOINGS AND MAYBE THIS WILL BE THEIR LAST SHOW AFTER 48 YEARS

WE SEE THE SAME THING HAPPENING WITH JO AT NABTS STATING THAT ENTRIES ARE LOW.

THEIR IS MYSELF BEEN 1 YEAR IN GETTING MY SHOW OFF THE GROUND FINDING THE CORRECT VENUE AND ALL BEING WELL WITH THE FINAL PAPERWORK IT WILL BE
29TH APRIL 208 IN LEWES EAST SUSSEX.
MY SHOW HAS NO MONEY IN THE BANK AND I WILL HAVE TO PAY FOR ALL THE FIRST SHOW EXPENDITURE MYSELF
.
IF MY ENTRIES ARE LOW AND I WILL NOT KNOW UNTIL THE CLOSING DATE I WILL NOT FINANCIALLY BE ABLE TOO PROCEED. VENUES TODAY ARE COSTLY , CATERING IS COSTLY JUDGES HAVE TO BE PAID AND FED, LIABILITY INSURANCE PLUS ALL THE HIDDEN EXTRAS.

EVERBODY MOANS WHEN WE HAVE LOST ANOTHER SHOW SO COME ON FOLKS WHAT IS HAPPENING, WHERE CAN YOU GO ALL DAY FOR 6.00 AN ENTRY MAX , OR ARE PEOPLE JUST NOT INTERESTED IN COMPETING ANYMORE ???

PLEASE LET ME KNOW AS I WILL NOT BOTHER TO CONTINUE WITH THE TIME AND EFFORT IN TRYING TO GET A NEW SHOW OFF THE GROUND.

JANET OLIVER. CORIECOLLIES.


Unfortunately there are other shows on the same date, competitors can only go to one show.   (Fergze) 2/6/2017 11:47:10

Please see my response.
When you apply to the kennel club to get a show off the ground they take into great detail if there are any shows on the same date and the distance away as they do not want shows competing against each other in the same areas.
  (janet oliver) 2/6/2017 12:17:52

May I know who is Fergze ?  (janet oliver) 2/6/2017 12:19:47

I was referring to Findon's Show Janet, I would have entered Findon but always go to Coventry.

Donna  (Fergze) 2/6/2017 13:26:16

Really sorry to hear this, when I read that the club were worried they may not break even, I put an entry in even though I have no idea if I will be able to go or not - for me it was worth 5 not to loose another show down south. As for all the comments about not putting an entry in because it wasn't on WYD - well if people can't be bothered to do a paper entry for one show - I really do despair for the future of obedience and perhaps this shows why clubs have such a difficult time getting people to help out - stand all day judging/stewarding/putting up rings, etc., versus putting an entry in the post, I know which I think is harder! Must say am also surprised as Winchester is on the Sunday, would have thought people would want to come down south in readiness for that, they couldn't camp at Eastleigh nor Winchester, so it can't be anything to do with camping. Good Luck Janet with your new show - can easily understand why you are concerned about the finances - perhaps having the show in April will be a help as Findon held their shows in April before, maybe the time of year has something to do with it. It would be interesting to hear why people haven't entered - certainly a good selection of Judges. Chris.   (Mossie) 2/6/2017 14:4:59

That is your choice but for people that live in the south Findon is their local show .  (janet oliver) 2/6/2017 14:8:22

It woukd be another nail in the coffin if we loose Findon Show ,always a lovely ,we'll run show .we are loosing so many shows down South ,,it will be too late soon ,no shows and everyone moaning unless we do something about it ,To Janet ,I wish you every success in your endeavour to run a show ,not an easy task to take on ,I am willing to help in any way for you ,  (Sten) 2/6/2017 22:34:32

Thank you greatly appreciated.  (janet oliver) 3/6/2017 14:55:54

It is a shame about such a low entry but please don't shout me down here as I know how difficult it is to find venues but the Findon ground is quite near a busy road and might put some people off as I have heard this discussed amongst people I know. Just saying! This is the first ever Findon show I have not entered.  (REMMIE) 3/6/2017 15:48:54

There is also a BCOS show on that date in the south.  (Fergze) 2/6/2017 13:33:13

A BCOS show is not a kennel club open show , your wins do not count for an open show.  (janet oliver) 2/6/2017 14:22:36

Not able to make Findon this year but happy to put fiver in the pot. Have not sorted next year as yet but again Janet happy to put fiver in your pot, every little helps.  (doghouse) 2/6/2017 17:36:57

Findon moved to April wasn't it so it wouldn't clash with anything else. I judged beginner that year and had 59 entries ! So why change date, was there a reason ?   (jennyl) 2/6/2017 20:50:3

Think they had problem with the venue. Sometimes wasn't available because of racing. No horse racing in July, so no problems with venue. And being same weekend as Winchester, would have made it more popular. Seems not.

Just a quick reminder that the closing date is 27th May - entries so far are very poor and giving rise to concern.

We have worked very hard to get the show together again following the disapointment of last year so please support our 47th Open Show by getting your entries in ASAP.

We will make a great warm up for Winchester Championship Show on Sunday 9th July.

Come on people, support your southern shows or lose them.

Sorry Pat. With your Dog has made lazy, just sit and wait for it to pop up on my email. Thanks for the reminder.  (miglio2) 25/5/2017 21:14:47

There are only two shows in the South east now who do not use With Your Dog, I believe. Not using them is likely to put people off entering your show. I would thoroughly recommend using them and they are very helpful. If you do your entries a particular way, they will make every effort to supply the information to you in a way that suits.   (Fran) 27/5/2017 12:10:37

I would like to thank everyone concerned in helping to make our show a success again, judges and stewards, without you there would be no shows, my committee Tony, Delia, Jacki, Jill, Denise, Sam and Cheryl for all the help putting up and taking down of rings and everything else in between, Marcia who once again manned the stay ring, thank you, Bev Hughes, Julie and Neil (who don't work dogs but come every year to help us) they parked cars and caravans then spent the rest of both days in the stay ring, Betty Gibson, Anthony Snook, Janet Beverley, Dawn also in the stay ring both days, Lyn and Mick Tozer and anyone else I have forgot. We had a KC Field Officer visit Saturday who was very happy with the show, also some rain which could have held off another half an hour or so later for Loryn to finish judging her special class, this was a great success raising over 200 for her chosen charity. Sunday was the better day when we saw the sunshine but all in all it went very well and now to start again for next year, if anyone would like to offer to judge or steward please contact me. Ruth

CHESVALE 7TH MAY - SHOW MANAGER REPORT  (CarolS) 25/5/2017 12:28:54

CHESVALE DOG TRAINING CLUB
OPEN SHOW SUNDAY 7th MAY 2017


The weather started grey and drizzling! Oops! not what I had ordered, however, the sun came out and by the afternoon it was pleasantly warm. Apologies to the competitor who was disappointed that she didnt work while it was miserable as her dog didnt like the sun. A surprise visit from the Kennel Club Rep to check we were doing everything we should ended with us receiving an excellent report.

As usual there are many people to thank for making our show such a success. Firstly huge thanks to all of our Judges and stewards who gave up their time there could be no show without them and I really appreciate that they continue to support Chesvale and we managed to sign up all the judges for 2018 too!.

Special thanks to Clare Williams our Show Secretary, who is like a woman possessed with the amount of work she does. Also to Jim Nokes who is in charge of our erection team and ensuring the show ground is organised. Sue Monk who acts as our Chief Stay Steward and all the members and competitors that helped during the day at the stay ring.

We are an extremely lucky club that has an enthusiastic group of members and their partners who arrive early to set up, work all day and stay late to clear away at the end of a long day. There were 28 of you on duty so grateful thanks to you all!

Special thanks to Gail Nokes, Lyn Hopkinson. Pauline Finn, Eileen Marsden and Stephanie Mayne who decided to do the judges catering AGAIN! They worked so hard and did a wonderful job, the lunch was superb as usual. Sally Partridge and Jo Dyas organised the afternoon teas and thanks to all the members who made masses of lovely cakes. Mary Berry would have been proud!

We would also like to thank Sue Vickers, Wendy Wheatcroft, June Le Feurve for running TWO training rings all day for us. It was very kind of them to volunteer and they amassed a huge 230.00. All the proceeds will be donated to Vigil GSD Rescue in memory of Margaret Hall, a long standing a much loved member of the Chesvale family.

The tombola was run by Maggie Petit and the 101.00 made was donated to Judith Johnson as sponsorship for her embarking on a marathon walk in aid of Breast Cancer in memory of Hazel Barber, another Chesvale member who is no longer with us.

Finally, to all the competitors who attended - we hope you had an enjoyable day and thank you for all the lovely comments and expressions of thanks for putting on a show.

See you again next year Sunday 6th May 2018 which is back to the Bank Holiday weekend. Dont forget we are running a Pre-beginner, Beginner and Novice only show on 27th August this year.
