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.


Judge needed for Newton Heath Show  (trimor) 17/10/2017 8:10:8

I will probably need a third C judge for our show on 30th December. Would anyone like to offer??

Cheshire Dog Training Association

Following the unfortunate cancellation of our Open and Championship Obedience shows for 7th and 8th October 2017, competitors can now apply for a refund of their entry and/or camping fees.
Refunds will be made after a deduction for reasonably incurred expenses.
Any refunds not claimed by 7th November 2017 will be donated to nominated charities, an announcement of which will be made in due course.
Applications for refunds must be made in writing, enclosing a stamped addressed envelope to:

Mrs Lisa Stock
87 Blackstairs Road,
Ellesmere Port,
Cheshire, CH66 1TX

Unfortunately, due to the time of year, we have decided it is not practical to re-schedule the Show or the Championship classes in 2017.

Lisa Stock
Show Secretary
Cheshire Dog Training Association

If you have booked the show through With your dog do you still need to write or would you refund it through with your dog?

Thank you

Denise   (deedee) 11/10/2017 22:20:30

Hi Lisa, just donate any money left over spirometer my entries to your nominated charity, cheers

It's in the OLC minutes  (Dyane) 19/10/2017 15:13:24

This is not proof of anything except that it was discussed by the Ob Liaison Council. It still has a long way to go before it will become a rule (if at all)  (weimarscot) 19/10/2017 16:16:29

Does DTW still exist? I cancelled my S/O with my bank and with DTW over two years ago, yet today I have had a bank statement and they have debited me with monies for the last two years apparently for DTW that I have not received and had cancelled. Tried ringing them but no reply.

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  (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

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

CHESHIRE DTA shows cancelled   (LAINEY) 5/10/2017 15:36:38


CHESHIRE DTA weekend shows 7th /8th October

It is with much regret, that after a ground inspection at our new venue, following 12 hours of torrential rain we have made the unfortunate decision to cancel both shows this coming weekend.
The ground is totally water logged.

The show committee are really disappointed having to reach this decision given the amount of hard work everyone at Cheshire DTA has put in.

We will advice competitors in due course regarding refunds.

If you know of any competitors who are not on FB or Ob Uk could you please let them know of the cancellation and feel free to share this post .

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!

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

Marcia, you and your gang are absolutely amazing and I would like to say a big thank you for giving up so much of your time for our sport it is greatly appreciated xx

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

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.

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.

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

My youngster is in A, and would have come, but Thursday is my busiest day at work. And as I work for myself, no work, no pay. As Sheila said as well, 2 classes on the same day would have increased entries, methinks.
  (ChrissieT) 23/9/2017 11:59:54

I would have love to come and looked seriously into it as I have a novice dog being placed in A. We don't actually work novice and so not having to pay an extra entry appealed to me. Only down side is it is 3hrs travel for me so even the late start didn't help. Move it closer and one class on a weekday really appeals :) I hope it is a success for you.  (Claire and Carney) 25/9/2017 11:39:48

I would have entered, but I work full time and apart from a couple of days for emergencies, all my holiday is taken up with dog shows t/o the season.

If it was on a winter w/end, I'd definitely support it.

It's great that you gave it a shot, but so sorry you have been unable to get it off the ground.

If you fancy trying again and need some more help, please let me know.

Elm Park Show, Decoy/Stay Stewards wanted  (iappleton) 20/9/2017 10:59:34

Hi All, just a little plea for any kind souls who would be able to help out in the stay ring, we have most of the morning covered but when our stay team go to lunch I'll be taking over for an hour ( 11:55-13:00 ish ) so some willing volunteers to do a couple of stays would be great.
Also after lunch some of our stay team will be needed for Decoy stewards so again anyone willing to do a couple of stays or offer to be a Decoy would help us no end.
So don't be shy just send us a Text/email/message or pop your head in the marquee on the day and let Julie or myself know.
Many Thanks Ian and Julie.

On Wednesday 23rd August the MRI scan showed he had a congenital cyst on the brain, pressing on the spinal cord, and the only option was to put him to sleep. Needless to say Alison is totally devastated, he was such a beautiful puppy in every way and that it should happen to one so young and full of life and promise, and to Alison who is so devoted to her dogs is a tragedy. If you see her at shows, please do not mention him, or if you do, just a brief 'sorry' as she is really struggling coming to terms with her loss. If you could please pass this on to anyone who may not have seen this, so hopefully no-one will come and ask her how her puppy is. Thanks everyone, life sometimes is a real bitch!

So sad to read this, so sorry Alison.

Much love and sympathy to Alison - to lose a puppy at 15 weeks is tragic when such a wonderful future they would have had together. I feel her pain having also lost a very young puppy. Yes Trish, life is a bitch at times. x  (REMMIE) 4/9/2017 12:4:34
