By Debra Harker

GSCofS May 2018 (1)

Debra and Hector after winning Best Puppy in Show at the Gordon Setter Club of Scotland Championship Show

I’m thrilled to tell you that Hector, ‘Hernwood Achilles at Ettrick’ ended his puppy career at Birmingham National Show by not only going Best Puppy in Breed, but also gaining Puppy Group 4 which I was absolutely thrilled at.

Hector is now unbeaten in puppy at all the Championship shows he has attended and has finished with 6 Best Puppy in Breeds including 2 breed shows and Crufts.  This makes him Top Gordon Setter Puppy in the country at the moment.

He has had an amazing start to his show career and of course exclusively fed on CSJ.

It was a keenly contested competition of extremely challenging retrieves,
over two days. Scotland ran out winners for the very first time, Ireland
took second place with England in third place.

Wales had mixed fortunes and ended up in 8th place overall, with:

  • Alan Rees’ young dog Fendawood Ecclestone at Delfryd amassing 161 points
  • Haydn Willmott’s Stykes Boy Llangynidr on 158 points
  • David Thomas’ Morglesmissy on 149 points – in his first international competition
  • Jamie Bettinson’s F.T.Ch. Cynhinfa Ladislav on 128 points.

As we now look forward to the Four Nations Challenge at Scone Palace, Perth 
and the Game Fair at Ragley Hall, I would like to express a big thank you,
on behalf of the Welsh Team, to Ceri, Phil and CSJ for your continued
support

April is one of the busiest months in the Agility Team GB calendar…

MLBy Mark Laker
International Agility Team Manager, Agility Team GB
With the Performance Weekend at the beginning of the month followed by many hours working though our selections for the 2018 teams and then picking dogs and handlers for this years development programme. Its exciting, rewarding and challenging, but thats the role. There are also many people who ask for feedback on their performance and where they can improve in the future.

This year we’ve selected to take 26 dogs to the European Open in Austria and 17 dogs to the World Championships in Sweden. You can read more about the selections and considerations in our decision making process in my blog For these handlers the hard work now begins. There is a lot of preparation required leading up to these big competitions not only the logistical planning, but also mapping out their training programmes for the months ahead.

These handlers will now be setting out which competitions they’ll attend to assist their preparations, setting out fitness and conditioning programmes for themselves and their dogs, working on their mental skills, as well focusing on the dog training and handling skills required for the courses they’re likely to be faced with. So lots to do.

Following the Performance Weekend we also picked 11 dogs to join this years development programme. This programme is designed to help prepare dogs and handlers for a chance in a future team. It’s been running for a couple of years now and we’ve had very positive feedback from previous people.

For the Coaching Team we’ll be getting to work with all the handlers over the next few weeks to identify where help they need and supporting them as they set out their 2018 plans. Although the hard work starts now, its a really enjoyable part of the job.

I’m hoping for some better agility weather so I can compete with my youngster who is coming on well. I’ve entered three competitions so far this year, two have been rained off.
