Suffolk Dog Day, Helmingham Hall  2014.

We had a great day running the Have a Go PDRO rally ring. Myself, Mary, Val and Ruth took a steady stream of interested handlers around during the day. We also raised just under £50 pounds for the Suffolk Foundation this year.
The Gooseberry and Elderflower, Ginger and Rhubarb ice creams were as delicious as last year, now a firm tradition for PDRO at this event.


13th July 2014      Hot, steamy and noisy weather didn't dampen the spirits at the trial.
                            Delighted to say, not one withdrawal due to the difficult weather conditions and still many excellent results.
Thanks to all of our judges once again for giving us their time.

Results are now posted.

15th June 2014     Great trial at the stables. Well supported with many new faces.
                            Thanks to Steve, Julie and Jay for judging with me.
                             Results on the 2014 championship page.
23rd March 2014.
The Rally year has gotten off to a fabulous start. Eight handers, eleven dogs and three judges enjoyed a great afternoon looking at the new Bronze on the Side and Gold Stars levels.  A busy start as we looked at different ways to teach our dogs the change of heel positions through the about turns, the crossovers and the weaves. Lyn's expression was priceless as Torin executed a beautiful smooth transition through the weave, his first!
 Then we started with the first Bronze on the Side course judged by Ruth, followed by the Gold Stars judged by myself.
Scores are on the Awards and Championship page.
Thanks to Mary for bringing a super lemon drizzle cake, and again thanks to Mary and Pete for helping to pack away.
I am looking forward to Saturday 12th April when I will repeat this workshop with new delegates and dogs.
Sorry this workshop is full, but please email if you would like a space in case of cancellation.

Pet Dog Rally Obedience Championship 2014.
With so many of you now having gained Championship at so many of the levels, I have made a change to the Awards and Championship 2014. You will see there is an introduction of the Champion's Challenge. Team's having attained Championship status in a previous year will now have their scores added over the year, with places and prizes being awarded at the year end.

 New for 2014   210 perfect score!  Special rosettes will be awarded at all levels.
I am excited to be introducing PET DOG MUSICAL MOVES. An extension to the successful PDRO, running now for over 3 years, PDMM will  encompass the same positive training ethos, position standards and fun approach to competing with our dogs. Scoring will reflect the execution of individual elements, musical interpretation, content and performance. Levels for all standards .  See below for detail
Classes in PDMM will commence Wednesday 5th March at 7pm Holbrook and run weekly except for the 3rd week of each month, when an evening Rally class will take place. There will also be an afternoon class one Tuesday per month tbc.
