Re: Course Times

Agree Pam, just wondering where all these classes are with totalky unachievable times, seems very few and far between to me But if it happens at a show you do happen to be, it's :censored: annoying! What I don't really understand is why this seems to be happening at certain shows, rather than in...

Re: change of handler on day

I guess that's right, Helen, and with the same dog. Complicated, isn't it :roll:

Owner or owner's "authorised agent" signs the declaration. Which at least means when I'm running Coby I don't have to get his owner to sign every ruddy entry form!

Re: Course Times

I think with smalls it's often a case of a judge never having run one and setting a :censored: stoopid time, but if no dogs get round a grade 6/7 large (including with faults) something is very wrong. Also hard if, for eg, you run smalls but are judging a large class - if you can't use someone els...

Re: Crutiate injury

He'll probably appreciate being fondled, massaged, and chatted to. I had my WSD in a huge crate that I could get in too and chat with him :blush: He also had lots of bones to chew and kongs filled with stock and frozen. I had a smaller crate in the living room so he could be with us in the evenings....

Re: Treat in hand

One of the reasons I won't get on the start line really early is that I want to be giving my little one treats as late as pos before he runs. I get there as the previous handler is coming to the end, but not "when they've gone over jump 10". Got really irritated at one show where the ring ...

Re: Packington

What a lovely show, thanks for all your hard work! Almost worth it for the weather alone, which was all I thought I would get after a 5 and a wrong-end-of-the-tunnel E. Only to get 2nd in the graded agility in the only ring still running at five o'clock! Finally - a rosie with a number on it agai...

Re: Packington Thanks

My grateful thanks go to the very kind ladies who patched me up this morning at Packington, after I shut the tailgate of my car on my thumb. I know you by sight but I'm hopeless at names, but any many many thanks. I went to A&E later, didnt break the thumb but its VERY swollen and to my dismay ...

Re: Lily Pollen

Yes I believe this is true; though more especially to cats it seems. Check out these: The PDSA produced the following list Daffodil (especially the bulbs) Castor oil bush (dogs love the seeds) Cherry laurel (common hedging plant) Laburnum (and related species) Lilies / Lily of the Valley (especial...

Re: Should all judges be qualified?

In my opinion (apart from contact specific rules) a refusal should be "running past the line of the obstacle" only. Any other deviations, spins etc. are penalized with time anyway. You must have seen the other forms of refusal ie. stopping, or turning away from an obstacle judged incons...

Re: Should all judges be qualified?

The question was by no means meant as a criticism to the many fine judges that we all see at shows. I see now that qualified was possibly the wrong term. Surely though, there should be some form of assessment, by the person inviting the judge to their show. It is all very well saying that the judge...

Re: Dog Guards v Crates

I don't believe there are currently any laws at all about how you travel your dogs in your car. The question really is the safety of your dogs and yourselves, and if the dogs will not tolerate a seatbelt, you are safest with either a good dog guard and a tailgate guard, or a proper fitted crate. It'...

Re: Vaccinations

My Little Girl Tilley had a full blown fit around two hours after her annual booster. She had never shown any signs before. A week or so later she had another fit then again she had four fits in a day (all around the 10 minute mark) dreadful for all. She is now medicated and is likely to be for ...
