Introducing UKDS (UK Dog Sport)

Introducing UKDS (UK Dog Sport)

By Wendy Beasley

For those of you looking at UK Dog Sport for the first time and wondering what it’s all about
here is a bit of an overview.

UKDS is a sport designed to cater for all breeds and all people. It is hoped that before too
long events will take place all over the country so people will not need to travel miles to
compete and, in addition to this, the levels are set so that whatever stage you and your dog are
at there should be a level to suit you.

Based loosely around working trials there are tests of nosework, control and agility with the obstacles within the capability of nearly all dogs. At its most basic levels exercises allow for dogs to be worked on the lead and encouraged with food or toys, and yet the top level is set at a standard equal to the highest level of competition. This sport is not KC affiliated and those running events are free to put on as
many or as few levels as they can accommodate and also set the entry number to their own

As competitors progress through the levels, they will become more challenging and give those
who want to continue to improve something to aim for, but there is no requirement to move
on and participants may remain working one level for as long as they wish.

UKDS is still very much in its early days and things may change as the sport moves on but,
for now at least, it’s “try it and see” while we continue to learn and tweak it where necessary.
So why not give it a go and hopefully enjoy a new sport that you and your dog should find
both challenging and rewarding.

UKDS Event at Bedingham, 10th-11th September 2022

By Wendy Beasley

What a lovely couple of days we have had watching some super dogs make history by bringing this sport to Norfolk. Although it was born here, there had not been an event here before, and I couldn’t have imagined it any better than it was.  This was in no small part down to Steve and Jo Felton for providing the fantastic venue. A large field with two thirds fenced with totally dog proof fencing, and the last third plenty big enough for parking, an exercise area, a toilet and a base. I heard at least one competitor describe it as a “a field to die for” and, as it was only at the bottom of my road, it could not have been any more convenient for us.

When I decided to put this on I was aware that getting sponsors could make the competition so much better.  I was amazed by the response that resulted in great prizes and something for every competitor. This was down to the generosity of CSJ Dog Food,  Crossways Country Store Ellingham. This was further enhanced by the beautiful rosettes supplied by In the Ribbons.

People were also very generous with their offers of help and I am especially grateful to Anita Bagge who judged Beginners and then went on to work her own dog in Novice.  Ann Handley also did Trojan service as Judge for Novice and steward for the other three levels, and then went on to stay behind at the end to help clear up. Another vote of thanks must go to Joan Snowden and Hilary Mercer who, between them, took some great photos. Finally I must thank Paul Beasley who as well as being by my side in the organising, setting up and clearing up, went on to judge both Intermediate and Advanced.

Although our entries were good, we did lose three of our Beginners before the event for various reasons, so only had two competitors at that level. The other levels were between four and five and we managed to fill both days without rushing, so everyone had plenty of time to get ready and to work without any panic. In hindsight, despite wondering if we should have done it all in one day, everyone seemed to agree it worked better having the extra time and everyone enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere.

I see the judges have kindly done their own reports so I won’t go into the work other than to say I thoroughly enjoyed watching you all work your super dogs and you made UKDS everything I hoped it would be, so thank you.

<strong>Dream come true for dad and son at World Sheepdog Trials</strong>

Dream come true for dad and son at World Sheepdog Trials

Press release – 24.8.22

Arwyn Davies told sponsors CSJ that it was a dream come true that he will finally get to represent his country with dad Bryn … after 10 years of competing against each other!

Bryn (57) and Arwyn (28), of Bryneglwys, have both qualified to represent Wales at the 2023 World Sheepdog Trials at the Gill Hall Estate in Dromore, County Down, on September 23, 2023.

Bryn started competing in trials career in the mid-1990s and Arwyn grew up with it.

They were just two of many hopefuls who headed to Newtown recently hoping to qualify from the Welsh trials and Arwyn topped it off beautifully with himself and his dog Cynfal Gwen finishing second overall.

Both Bryn and Arwyn feed their dogs on CSJ’s specialist dog foods and naturally CSJ’s owner and founder Ceri Rundle understands well how tough it is to compete with so many top winning handlers and dogs … since amongst her own numerous successes she was the first lady to qualify for the Welsh National Team in 1996, and also competed in the World Trials in Ireland in 2005.

<strong>CSJ Highland Agility Stakes Finals</strong>

CSJ Highland Agility Stakes Finals

3rd July 2022

By Sara Hawkswell

The 3rd of July 2022 saw the return of the GWCT Game Fair at Scone Palace.

In the morning the preliminary agility round was held which determined the running order for the afternoon’s final. Our Judge for the day was Yvonne Reid who set a fantastic course showing the ability of the dogs and handlers to the viewing spectators. 

After a break which enabled the competitors to have a wander round the stalls in an effort to ease any nerves it was time to set the course for the final. As the stalking ponies were in before us we needed to clear away mountains of pony poo, however it was quite special poo as they were ponies owned by the Queen!

Once again Yvonne set another fantastic, fast course.  The ring is big and Yvonne set  a course that meant dogs, and handlers, had to cover a long distance.  A large crowd gathered to watch dogs in all four height categories run.  The winners had to work hard for their places – in the medium competition only 0.6 seconds separated the winner and runner up!! 

Congratulations to the winners:

Large Winner: Lalapaws Born This Way handled by Dane Redford.

Runner Up: Combyeanaway By The Way Love handled by Alan Short

Intermediate Winner: Candlewind Spring Time handled by Emily Lewis.

 Runner Up: Inverlochys Spooktacular. Handled by Cerys Miller

Medium Winner: Basileas More of a Chaser handled by Jennifer Kent

 Runner Up: Sanscott Midnight Mist handled by Elizabeth Graham

Small Winner: Blundas April handled by Emma Pullan

 Runner Up: Calderwood Cheeky Charmer handled by Derek Elms

Huge thanks go to our sponsor CSJ, with support from Showtime Online and Norton Rosettes. Without your support we could not run this showcase event. Also thanks to Hollycraig Photography and CSB Photography for the photographs and the ring party for giving up their day to make it such a memorable day for the competitors.



First place – Ireland with 903 points

Second place– England with 886 points

Third place – Wales with 854 points

Fourth place – Scotland with 850 points

A big thank you to the Game Fair, Barbara Kuen, Francesca Prentice, Lisa Harris and Mark Clifford, the four judges that did a great job over the two days, and not to forget the great arena crew who were perfect throughout the duration of the competition.

This year’s course, probably the best Game Fair course for a long time, was challenging. 

A huge thank you to Ceri and Phil of CSJ, our main sponsors. Without their continued support it would be impossible to compete at this level.

Wales consolidated their third place overall at International level after some fierce competition over the two days. 

Top spaniels were Scotland with 480 points, second England with 470 points, Third Wales with 458 points and Ireland with 451. The Welsh team, after numerous late changes did remarkably well. Roger Woolridge with 91, Dewi Williams with 88, were first timers on the team, taking on a very difficult Spaniel course. Rhys Carpenter, came in late, scoring a creditable 93, but is was a delight to see Steve Erasmus ( Raz) coming up with  a score of 99, he was a joy to watch. A huge thank you must go to Aled Jones, who leads and works so hard with the spaniels returning a score of 87. Thanks must go to Julie Thatcher, our reserve, for her great support over the weekend.Well done all.

Top Retrievers were Ireland with 452 points, after a fantastic performance, second England with 416 points, third were Wales with 396 points and then Scotland with 370 points. There was a change in the format of this year’s Retriever competition with all Retrievers running on both days, having a total of 10 retrieves per Retriever. The course for the Retrievers clearly showed how difficult it was with 12 failures over the course of the two days, this was tough going. Nigel Probert with Angus returning a score of 90, Alan Rees with Magnum on 89, Nigel again, with Tom on 85, Mike Jones with Buzz on 67 and David Christmas Thomas with Martha, new on the team, scoring 65. There was a tie for top Retriever between Steve Richardson of England and John Dawson of Ireland , both on a score of 98.

A big thank you to our reserve Wendy Glue for her contribution over the weekend.

In closing I would like to thank all 16 spaniels that tried out for the team this year plus the 20 Retrievers that also tried out. Thank you to all the helpers, dummy throwers and the team members that have travelled so far to practice and compete. 

Once again a huge thank you to Ceri & Phil and all at CSJ. Your 15 years of loyal support is well appreciated.

Diolch yn Fawr
