KC Agility Measuring

We are going to be offering measuring at both our agility shows. These are taking place on the 22nd April at Aldon in Yeovil and 22nd July at Ilchester Sports Field near Ilchester. The address for these are on the schedules which can be found on Agilitynet.

https://www.agilitynet.co.uk/clutch/shows.htm

Measuring sessions will be held around lunchtime. Measurers will be Julia Sutton-Vane and Tracy Sowden.  If you are looking for a second measurement and either of them have already measured your dog they cannot measure it again.  

Please note that if your dog is obviously large it does not need to be measured.  Please contact Tracy on 01963 34198 (between 5.30pm and 8.30pm only please) or by email at tms.kc.measuring@gmail.com for a slot and further details

Kate and Bella Qualify for Crufts!

One of our members Kate and her working cocker spaniel Bella have qualified to represent the South and South West for Obedience at Crufts in March 2018! 

Kate says "To qualify we had to do an obedience round which consisted of heel on lead, off lead, retrieve, recall and stays. The selection panel watched and took notes and a steward gave instructions."

What a fantastic achievement.

All The Fun of an Agility Course Evening...

On the 14th August the agility trainers organised and ran a course evening for all their training members. The aim of this was to encourage our new recruits to think about competing and also to enable our more experienced to polish their skills. We had an agility course and a steeplechase course judged by two of our trainers. Each competitor had two runs at each with the best run taken for scoring.                     

The more experienced competitors were marked as per KC standard rules and ran at their measured height (or one below for retired dogs) and the beginners marked on faults only, all running at small height.

The results were as follows:

Agility – Competition group

Small Height

1st Kate Asher with Bella

2nd Gay Horsey with Lily

Medium Height

1st Hannah Chesterman with Rigby

2nd Debbie Calcott with Archie

3rd Katy Card with Trixie

We were (mostly!) lucky with the weather and a good time was had by all. Plus there was cake and dog biscuits. Always a winner.
