CLUB SUCCESS

 

COMPETITION OBEDIENCE 

 Report on 3-way match held on 2nd April at Worplesdon Memorial Hall. By Anne Burge
 I would like to thank all the handlers for taking part in the match with their dogs.  It was a great day and everyone seemed happy if they were also a tad nervous...
 We did have 2 handlers that took on this match having not done much if any obedience and that was Maureen and Febo and Tracey Masters from agility with her dog Freddy.
 SURREY hosted the March this year and we all enjoyed their lovely cakes. At first the results were South Eastern in first place SURREY in second and Billingshurst 3rd place.... well after reading the results again it all changed... So the final results are: SURREY in first place Billingshurst second and South Eastern in last place.   So we are so pleased for those who took part and we came second without 2 C handlers.

Working Trials

In Working Trials one member has had great success. Stella Richards has finally got her TDEx with her Border Collie. This gives her the full set of letters after her dog’s name.

Good Citizen Scheme

Anyone who has any interest in the Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme within the club will know that Tracey Masters has helped us out on numerous occasions to judge our Bronze Level Tests.  Tracey has been a judge at Silver level also for some time.   Recently however she passed the KC Examiner Assessment Course in order to judge at Gold Level too.  This puts Tracey on the A1 List of Examiners!  We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Tracey for all her hard work in achieving this status – it’s not an easy test.  And give advanced warning that we’ll certainly be calling on her services in the future!  

On the subject of The Good Citizen Scheme, congratulations must go to Jo Macleod who has just achieved Gold with her Labrador Lola. 

Well done to all of you..

 

 

 

FLYBALL

 We are organising another Flyball Course at Dedisham Farm by kind permission of Valerie and Peter Harrison.  It is a wonderful venue for Flyball being on an enclosed outdoor Riding School on grass.  
 Flyball is a great fun summer activity and we are offering a 10 week Course starting on Monday 12th June until 28th August.  The extra two weeks are to allow for bad weather as it is dangerous to do flyball when the ground is wet.  If the weather is good you will get all  12 weeks for just £30.  
Those attending need to be at the farm just before 7pm on each Monday to help set up the lanes.  We usually finish about 8.30pm depending on the light which is usually good at this time of year. We are giving those who have attended before priority but we do have room for new members who have not done it before.  Your dog needs to be fit and be keen on balls.  During the Course we run competitions as you are learning and there is a “Top Dog” Trophy presented at the AGM for the fastest Dog.    All profits from the Course will go to our Charities for the Year as usual.  If you would like to join us please contact Graham Reynolds.

 

TED LYGO MEMORIAL TROPHY

Below is a picture of Lin Bagley's dog Teddy.

Teddy was awarded the trophy by SATS (Southern Alsatian Training Society). The award is given to the GSD that has an outstanding achievement in any sphere (e.g. breed, working, pat dog, search & rescue). It was awarded to Teddy for the assistance he gave Lin before and during Lin's treatment for cancer.

KIT WILSON TRUST

Here is Eunice presenting the cheque for £1500, raised by the club, 2014/2015, to Kit Wilson Trust for their Aged Dogs Accommodation, at the BDTC AGM.

 

 

Below is a picture of Eunice presenting Andrew Simmonds from AHT with the cheque for £1050 raised by BDTC in 2015/2016 with a copy of the letter sent by AHT.

Dear Eunice

It was a pleasure meeting you at Crufts on the Sunday and to have received the wonderful cheque from Billinghurst Dog Training Club’s fundraising in 2016.  What an honour to receive your valued funds in this our 75th Anniversary year!! 

With our sincere thanks again for supporting our canine work and I shall look forward to updating you on how the funds were utilised in due course.  We will ensure they provide a huge benefit towards furthering the health and welfare of dogs.

Very best wishes.

Andrew

Here are Eunice, Pat and Graham presenting Stef Ransley from Wadars Animal Sanctuary, with the cheque for £1500 raised by BDTC in 2014/2015.

The donation has been reserved for current dog care.

This means it will be used for kennelling and veterinary fees for a number of four-legged friends in their care, to go toward some of the treatments that can be costly (scale and polish, neutering etc), and is not always covered by the adoption fee.

NEW LEGISLATION

Under the Animal Welfare Act 2006 all dogs in England, Scotland and Wales must be microchipped and registered from 6 April 2016.

Breeders must ensure puppies are chipped by the age of 8 weeks old and cannot transfer ownership until this is done. Owners, or the ‘keepers’ of dogs are required to ensure their details are kept up to date on an authorised microchip database. This onus is on the ‘keeper’ of the dog to register the details of any new owner, or report if the animal dies. Police and some Local Authority employees will be issued with microchip readers to ensure this law is enforced. If a dog is found not to be microchipped then the keeper may be served with a notice requiring it to be chipped with 21 days and face a £500 fine if they don’t comply with the notice.

Only vets, a nurse or student acting on a vet’s directions or a person who has been on an approved training course may implant a microchip. The only exemption to registration is if the dog is a Certified Working dog or where there is a medical exemption and a vet has issued a certificate.
