Brittany Club of Great Britain (Western Region) – Sunday 24th June 2018

Share this...Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on TumblrEmail this to someonePrint this page

Training Day to be held at the Gamegoer Gundog Kennels, Heathfield Lodge, Bletchingdon, Oxford, OX5 3DU (by kind permission of Graham & Karen Watkin)

 Commencing 10.00 to 16.30 approx. Fee £10 for members, £12 non-members.

PROGRAMME

 

10.00 Introduction

10.15 – 12.30 General Disobedience – Beginners – Steve Wright, Novices – Norma Ansell, (Maurice Cook assisting ‘special needs’)

Covering the principles of obedience – creating willingness and respect, improving response, the dog’s understanding of your commands, developing handling skills. Training in basic heelwork, stays and recall. Advice available on behavioural problems.

There are farm animals on site to test your dog’s steadiness with these.

12.30 – 13.30 Lunch

13.30 – 15.00 TAN preparation (for the Test d’Aptitudes Naturels) at the Brittany Club’s Le Weekend in July. This is the Club’s entry event into any sort of fieldwork with Brittanys and is open to any dog that has not previously won the event. Involves finding caged game in rough grassland and does not require any prior training.

15.00 -16.30 General fieldwork – Steve Wright, Maurice Cook

Hunting for game. How to develop a quartering pattern. A secure rabbit pen is available.

Retrieve. Training the retrieve with dummies and cold game, from puppies onwards. Split retrieves, memory retrieves, etc.

Water. The venue has an extensive and inviting lake.

Steadiness. Nipping problems in the bud. Introduction to gunshot.

13.30 -16.00 Agility & Canicross – Norma Ansell & any volunteer who knows about canicross!

Introducing agility to young dogs and developing response. Coaching for those who are already on their way.

This is an opportunity to find out about competitive sports that are very suitable for the pet Brittany and offer good outlets for their energy.

These will take place at the same time as the Fieldwork and we envisage you moving from one to the other as you wish.

16.00 – 16.30 End of day

Questions and answers. Feedback of future needs.

 

SOCIAL NOTES

Please bring everything you need with you, i.e. dog/s, lead & collar, dummy/ies, whistle, waders/wellies, towels, water & drinking bowl. Also bring your own food with extra to share. There is a barbecue on site if anyone wants to cook their own!

 

Other HPR breeds are very welcome.

 

DIRECTIONS TO GAMEGOER GUNDOGS

Take the B4027 turn off the A34, 1 mile south of the M40 Junction 9. Head towards Bletchingdon for 100 yds, then turn right to Heathfield Lodge. BCGB signs will direct you from there.

 

WHOSE TRAINING YOU

Steve Wright has worked Brittanys with hawks for 30 years. He previously trained guide dogs for over 20 years, having competed in obedience prior to this. He has bred 8 generations of his Hawkwise Brittanys and became a Committee Member of the BCGB in 2006 before coming Chairman in 2014. Latterly he has been exploring the world of Field Trials. He works his dog on three local shoots each week and does both beating and “picking up”.

 

Maurice Cooke is a member of the Kennel Club General Committee and of its Crufts Sub Committee and is an ex member of the Activities Sub Committee and Working Trials Council having competed successfully in this sphere for many years. He, with his partner Norma, have owned and bred Brittanys for 18 years. Maurice is also working on local shoots and competing at Working Tests and Trials.

 

Norma Ansell is an experienced dog trainer & animal behaviourist, having competed and won Tickets in Obedience. Now concentrates on Working Trials and Agility. Her bitch “Hawkwise Bedouine over Gefni” was the highest graded Brittany ever to compete in the UK and is now the mother of the highest achieving Brittany in this sphere.

 

PLEASE TELL OTHER BRITT OWNERS ABOUT OUR TRAINING DAYS. EARLY HELP CAN PREVENT A GREAT DEAL OF DISTRESS FOR OWNERS AND DOGS.

ASK TOO ABOUT OUR MENTORING SYSTEM. WE MAY BE ABLE TO PUT YOU IN CONTACT WITH AN EXPERIENCED CLUB MEMBER WHO HAS ALREADY SURVIVED THE BRITTANY CHALLENGE!

Le Weekend 2018 – Brittany Club Annual Event & Show Weekend – 7th & 8th July 2018

mykp Events, News and Events 9th March 2018
Share this...Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on TumblrEmail this to someonePrint this page

To be held at Walford & North Shropshire College, Baschurch, Shrewsbury, Shropshire, SY4 2HL

This year the Working and Activities events will take place on the Saturday, followed by the Championship show on the Sunday.

For those that don’t know, Le Weekend is the club’s annual get together where members from all over the UK gather to take part in the working and activity day and the championship show.  The weekend is friendly and informal.  You can attend either (or both) days and join in and take part in as much or as little as you want to.  There are trophies and prizes up for grabs on both days and the chance to meet other like-minded Brittany enthusiasts.

Dogs do not have to be KC registered to take part in the activity day competitions and events – in fact they don’t have to be Brittanys – other HPR breeds owned by members are welcome to take part in Le Weekend activity day.

I have attached booking forms for the Activity and Working day plus details and booking forms for overnight accommodation at Walford, and the Club Dinner on the Saturday evening.  The schedule for the championship show can be found on the Fosse Data website here http://www.fossedata.co.uk/show_schedules/schedule.aspx?id=BRIT_JUL_18

If you were at Le Weekend last year, we hope to welcome you back.  If you have not attended before, why not make this year the first time.

We look forward to seeing you there.


Walford Campus is located in 600 acres of grounds in a beautiful rural setting, but within easy reach of Birmingham and Manchester and half an hour from the M54.

We invite Members to bring any breed of dog they own not just Brittanys. Have a go at the fun events and general activities and join us for the weekend book in to the accommodation and join us for the Club Dinner.

PLEASE NOTE THE WORKING DAY IS ON SATURDAY AND THE SHOW ON SUNDAY JUST FOR THIS YEAR.

The accommodation on site consists of well appointed single or twin rooms, with ensuite facilities (£45 double or £35 single) or non-ensuite singles (£25). There are kitchens for each section where you can make hot drinks or breakfast. Rooms are available Friday and Saturday nights.

Large Car Parks and plenty of dog exercising area (pick up after your dogs, please). Dogs are allowed in the rooms provided they are well controlled but if you intend leaving your dog(s) in the room at any time we suggest you bring a suitable indoor kennel.

Caravans, Motorhomes and tents can also be accommodated at £10 per night, there are water points and use of showers and toilets but no electric hook ups. The site is adjacent to all activities.

CATERING

The campus restaurant provides snacks and full meals at very reasonable prices and will be open all day Saturday & Sunday and pre-ordered Buffet will be available 5p.m. to 7p.m. Friday.

The Menu for the Club Dinner on Saturday evening is shown with the booking form.

There will be no Bar facilities but we can bring our own drinks.


WORKING AND ACTIVITIES DAY

Saturday 7th July 2018 9.30 am

Meet in reception area adjacent to Cafeteria for information on all the days’ events and for introductions and instructions for the day. Each participant will receive a timetable and map of the area on registration – enlarged copies of these will also be at strategic points.

NATURAL APTITUDE ASSESSMENT (TAN Test des Aptitudes Naturels) Your dog (6 months +) needs no previous training and is assessed on its natural ability in Hunting and Pointing, and on its response to its handler. It takes place in a secure field where caged birds have been hidden. The Judge wants to see it hunt the area thoroughly, use the wind instinctively and its reaction to finding game. It is a relaxed and informal assessment of your dog’s working potential.

Dogs who have not previously passed their TAN will receive a certificate of attendance and a critique. Those gaining a pass, in the assessor’s opinion, will receive a Diploma of Merit. The Stan Smith Memorial Trophy will be awarded for Best TAN participant on the day. NB Former winners are excluded from competing.

HUNTING An afternoon training session is designed to help you to understand use of the wind and more about teaching your dog how to quarter ground thoroughly, etc.

REEP – Deep water retrieve Dogs are asked to retrieve a canvas dummy from water requiring them to swim. Achieving this earns your dog a Diploma of Merit. More experienced dogs can try a higher degree of difficulty, where the dog is sent across a wider expanse of water for an unseen dummy. Bring dog (and human) towels.

RETRIEVING This is the third element of the HPR’s skills. Introductory training sessions will be held throughout the morning – dogs can retrieve favourite toys or canvas dummies. In the afternoon there will be two competitions, for Novice and Advanced dogs, where different types of retrieves are attempted – of increasing complexity. You will see exercises to teach your dog in preparation for next year’s Le Weekend!

A dog that retrieves can be exercised in a relatively small area, so it is a boon to urban owners without access to open countryside.

CANI-X A relatively new sport where owners and dogs compete as a team – running trails over differing distances according to your ambition and fitness! Dogs wear a harness and are attached to you by a bungee line fastened to your belt. This is a safe and enjoyable way of exercising and building a good rapport with your dog. Advice will be available on the day.

AGILITY An excellent outlet for energy and high intensity exercise that encourages responsiveness. A selection of jumps, tunnels, etc. will be available for practice throughout the day, with experienced handlers on hand to coach you and your dog. Ask them about this popular sport.

RALLY: Fun event this year This is a less strenuous canine sport based on the heelwork element of Obedience. Primarily you follow a pre-set course. Signs, placed at intervals, give you a simple exercise to do with your dog, e.g. sit on command, or allowing you to examine its teeth, before moving on again. The signs are all the guidance competitors receive, so you do not have to listen to directions from a judge or steward. Dogs may compete on a loose lead or free, and you may give as many verbal commands and as much encouragement as necessary. Basic training will be available.

OBEDIENCE Sessions in both morning and afternoon will deal with behavioural problems, basic obedience, and your relationship with your Brittany. Experienced Canine Behaviourists will be on hand to help with individual problems. Covers heelwork, recall and staying, etc. Advice on developing a deeper interest through Kennel Club Good Citizen Scheme and Obedience Clubs

TIMED STAY Competition with trophy for longest stay.

SPRINT Over about 50 yards to find quickest dog with trophy for fastest.

SHOW HANDLING Demonstrations on grooming, presentation and handling will be available by arrangement.

Critique by Judge Gloria Horrocks

I was delighted to be asked to judge three special classes at the Brittany Club’s Open Show and would like to thank the Committee and Exhibitors for their warm welcome and for entrusting me with their lovely, lively breed. I have long admired these charming small gundogs and was not disappointed on close acquaintance.

Ch. Brittyhill Sorrel Memorial Special: Special Yearling dog or bitch. (5)
1. Coveney’s Tillybirloch Mistique: Typy youngster. Lovely head with moderate stop and good eye shape, eye colour in accordance with coat colour. Well-muscled with good bone whilst retaining feminity. Frisky when moving but I saw enough to give her the class.. 2. Finch’s Jassendue Manet’s Medley. Orange roan dog. Kind, enquiring expression, nice head with well-placed ears. Good depth to brisket. Well boned legs and very good feet. 3. Anderson’s Rochus Moet.

Sandy Massie Memorial Special Open BCGB Tan dog or Bitch (7:1 abs)
Very difficult decision in separating these two lovely boys.
1. Wright’s Hawkwise Land Agent, eventually had the edge, smaller than 2 but still masculine. Nicely balanced cobby body with strong topline kept on the move. In good coat and condition with some light feathering and the best of feet. Movement on both these boys was a pleasure to watch both moving briskly and carrying their heads proudly 2. Anderson’s Rochus Huxley, substantial dog, a little taller than 1 but in proportion. Nice head properties; well sprung ribcage and good depth of brisket. 3. Davies’ Rochus Lottie

Peter Green Memorial: Special Open dog or bitch (8:3 abs)
1. Tully’s Sh.Ch Highclare Flaming Nora. Classy b. Best of heads with sweet, intelligent expression. Lovely, well balanced cobby body, good topline and depth to well-rounded rib cage. In good, nicely marked coat, moved well. Altogether a very worthy winner. 2. Coveney’s Tillybirloch Jem. Lovely dog and I see from the catalogue that he has the same father as my yearling winner, dad obviously passing on type. Good forehand, nice shoulder placement, good bone and conformation. 3.Barlow-Evans’ Rochus Luna.

Critique by Judge Irene Glen

The Brittany Club of Great Britain
Market Harborough
24th September 2017

I would just like to thank the Officers and Committee for asking me to judge at their well-run Open  Show, I was honoured and delighted. Also a big thanks to the exhibitors for bringing their quality  dogs, I was spoilt for choice.

There was a lovely atmosphere around the ring and the weather was kind to us so it was great to be able to hold the show outside.

Minor Puppy Dog or Bitch
1st Gudgin’s Neuvelle Nariska at Jassendue.
What a quality young bitch, just loved her, with  everything just right for her age. Feminine Head with correct 3 to 2 proportions, a lovely dark eye  giving a soft expression. Short neck, well laid shoulders, lovely bone and substance for age with a  well-developed body. Good width of thigh and so sound on the move for her age. BPIS

Novice Dog
1st Samardzija’s Patouche Lambert
Balanced throughout, pleasing head with a typical outlook,  strong neck and good depth and substance. Short back and lovely width of thigh. Moved well.

Post Graduate Dog
