2nd Miss G Duff, Overbore League of Their Own


Roz Davies has been out and about using her judging skills taking on the difficult appointment of judging at a Charity Dog show for street dogs. What a great cause Roz!

There were four Curlies at the West Midlands CCR Training Hub on 29 April 2023. They had a good time focusing on the needs of the handlers and their dogs. In the afternoon the dogs did some nice water retrieves from the lake and delivery to hand, cooling off after all their  hard work in the morning.  The next meet up is with Haydn Ebrey a gundog man and Gamekeeper, contact Lesley Eden for further details.

Cameron Stokes was volunteering at a YKC training day at the KC building at Stoneleigh this weekend. They had Agility, Obedience, Hoopers and Handling Training. The training took place in forty minute sessions with 2 sessions of ‘Team Time’. There were 4 teams of 8, and Cameron’s Team won the competition to design and make a Coronation Crown and Outfit using the materials supplied. Sounds like a fabulous weekend!
For anyone with young handler’s, joining the YKC provides lots of great opportunities for building confidence in the ring with advice from those who were in YKC, more details can be found on the Kennel Club website.
