First Clumber to Run in an Agility Championship Show

Well done to Pam Sheppard (proud father!) and Roxie.

From Pam “5 years ago my memories shows me ditching WKC and training Roxies weaves in the park instead….Today we’re at WKC and ran our first Champ classes!

On the Agility Round my lil lady did well…not feeling confident but still doing everything asked of her she pulled out a clear run 😍

…and shes the first Clumber Spaniel to run in Agility Champ….ever!!”

There is a video of Roxie in action, I’ll try and get a link to it sorted when Pam’s back from WKC.

Meet the Expert (Virtual Talk on Zoom)

“An Introduction to Showing”

Our first meet the expert will be held on zoom on the 29th August at 7.00pm its topic being:

 ” AN INTRODUCTION TO SHOWING”  

The speaker will walk you through from where you find shows to how to fill in the entry, types of shows, what lead is best.

You name it, our guest speaker will answer your questions to help ease the path into showing. 

Hilda Monaghan will be your guide and will be ready to answer your questions.

Numbers will be limited to 25. On Zoom.

If you would like to participate please send an email to Eunice King 

Please mark it (Hilda)

Possible Zoom Seminar Topics

At our recent committee meeting it was suggested we hold zoom seminars / chats where the members are invited to get involved. The proposal follows the very successful on-line “chat” that Lee Cox had as part of “Talking Dogs with Ante”

So please get involved!

The committee would like to hear from you regarding subjects of interest to you. We can then hopefully get the appropriate speakers to hold a seminar style evening.

[Now I’m going to get into trouble for this!]

At the committee the first suggestions were “grooming, showing etc.. “

Not putting suggestions here, but why not topics such as Obedience, Mantrailing, Agility (including Hoopers), Scentwork as well as dealing with older dogs, common health issues etc.

I’m sure you will have a lot more!

Please send your suggestions to Eunice King
