North Derbyshire Premier and Championship Show, Rolleston: 10-11 September 2016

Very well done to Mel and Jazz who came 4th in a time of 43.374 with 5f in the Championship Finals at the North Derbyshire Show.  Jazz was the second fastest dog but dropped a bar on the long jump which unfortunately kept them off the reserve ticket.  Mel and Jazz won the Champ Jumping qualifier in a clear round of 33.566 (against a course time of 35 seconds!) and wasn’t eliminated in the Agility qualifier which got the pair through to the Finals.   The competition at Champ level is incredibly stiff, so to get through to the Finals and then get close to the placings is an amazing achievement.   

Demi and Pip also competed at this show and achieved two clear rounds: one in the G4-5 Agility (unplaced 4th) and one in the C5-7 Jumping - well done to you both.

AA Independent Show, Larling: 16-17 July 2016


The AA show at Larling was a show of Firsts: first show for some club members’ dogs (Mel’s GT, Ben’s Reno and Allie’s Zack) and first experience of judging courses for some AA members.
Colleen, Debbie, Connie, Sally and Heidi all judged courses throughout the day.  Our judges’ courses flowed really well with a good range of straightforward courses for those classes which stayed the same for all levels, and some interesting and challenging courses appropriate to differing levels of experience.  Thank you AA judges (and AA members who set courses but didn’t judge them) and, of course, also to our non-AA judges, Christina Williams and Ann Creasy.
GT started as he means to go on by winning three of his Anysize classes: Helter skelter, steeplechase and tunnel vision. Well done GT for listening and ignoring all those ringside distractions and congratulations Mel: look out G3 handlers
Demi won the club prize for most points gained during the 16-17 July show and took home the highest achieving member trophy for the second time: well done Demi!

The 16-17 July show was the last event in which points could be gained towards the league tables.  The top five handlers and dogs with most points in each category (Juniors, Veteran, Anysize, Elementary Small, Medium and Large, Starters, Novice and Advanced) have just been invited to the AA Finals on 29 August.



Results from AA Independent Show, Larling: 16 and 17 July 2016

The following AA members were placed, or achieved clear rounds, during the very sunny show at Larling; well done everybody.  Winners had the choice of a trophy or a dog-themed charm, and competitors with clear rounds the option of a clear round rosette or individual charm.

In addition to her achievements with Jazz and Jho Jho, Mel also won a small G5-7 agility class with Pip (beating second place by a huge margin) and also gained 2nd places in G5-7 agility and G5-7 jumping classes.

Demi also had success with Pip: the pair came 2nd in a jumping class and also gained two 3rd places in two small G5-7 jumping classes (at G6).

As if running three dogs wasn’t challenging enough, Mel also went on to win a G5-7 jumping class (at G6) with Wild Willie and they came 2nd in a medium C5-7 agility class.

Bank Holiday success

AA members were out and about having fun and picking up places in Nottingham and Matlock over the bank holiday weekend.  At Nottingham Agility DTC Championship Agility Show, Demi was chuffed to get two clear rounds with Pip in her first ever G6 competition and Janice and Diesel were just out of the placings.  Mel and Jazz narrowly missed winning their C6-7 agility, being placed Second, and they got 5f in the Champ agility on a tough course and E’d in the Champ jumping round.  Jho Jho was on top form and there was no catching her - fantastic distance control was the order of the day!

At Dog Vegas in Matlock, Annette and Dillion won out and won five of their nine classes, scooping three Firsts in G4-5 jumping, one First in G4-5 agility, and a First in C4-5 jumping.  Keith and Keira got a Second in their G6-7 jumping class and Milly went clear in two of her Allsorts jumping classes: a great weekend for Team Lown.  Gavin and William achieved some clear rounds and a Fourth in their C6-7 jumping.  As well as running William, Gavin also ran Holly and the pair had huge success winning out into G5 - well done Holly!  Lynne and Tahoe won out into G4 in their first G3 competition and also got two Seconds (G1-3 jumping and C1-3 agility), two Thirds (C1-3 jumping and G1-3 jumping) and a Fifth (G1-3 agility) - this pair are on a roll!

More AA Members Win Out!

Three AA members won out at AA’s 3 day KC show, 30 April-2 May; Demi and Pip won into G6, Peter Forman and Bess won into G3, and Lynne and Tahoe (at their first G2 show!) also won into G3 - huge congratulations!

Demi won out on Saturday by winning her small G4-7 agility class in a time of 37.280.  Demi and Pip also won Saturday's Under 12 Junior Agility class (35.205) and beat herself (and Pukka) into 2nd place (41.967)!  They won the same class again on Sunday (43.896) AND Monday (33.273) when the pair also got two 3rd places in the G4-7 agility (37.005) and the G4-7 jumping (46.805).  We think Demi may be the youngest person to have achieved G6 with a dog trained by the handler, rather than by taking on an experienced dog - well done Demi!

Peter and his Floozy Bess won out on jumping wins accumulated over the weekend.  On Sat they won the small G1-3 jumping (26.248).  Sunday saw them winning the small jumping G1-3 (27.234) and the small C1-3 Helter Skelter (22.172) - and also getting a touch of sunburn.  On Monday Peter and Bess won their two small G1-3 jumping classes in super-fast times of 23.874 and 23.682.

In their first show running at G2, Lynne and Tahoe won out into G3, starting with two jumping wins on Saturday (G1-2, 28.648 and C1-2, 28.593) then winning out on an agility win Sunday morning (large G1-2, 30.880).  Lynne and Tahoe also won the large G1-2 jumping on Sunday (29.797) and the large jumping C1-2 on Monday (23.635).

Well done Demi, Peter and Lynne - you’ve all won out in style!
