Training Day – Brittany Club of Great Britain (Western Region) – Sunday 28th October 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)

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.

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

YOUR BRITTANY (OTHER HPR BREEDS ARE WELCOME) DOES NOT HAVE TO BE TRAINED OR EXPERIENCED BEFORE COMING! We can help with everything from toilet training to advanced competitive work in different disciplines. Best of all we like to see owners and puppies develop a happy relationship and find exciting activities to do together. Any training helps you engage with your Brittany (and vice versa) and makes your walks trouble-free and improves his social behaviour at home or anywhere else.

You will also find he has a lot of talents that only need a chance to develop. Our range of varied activities can help you find those that appeal to you and your dog the most.

PROGRAMME

10.00 Introduction

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

Getting the right relationship with your dog and the principles of obedience – create willingness and respect, improve response, the dog’s understanding of your commands, develop 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 A Brittany is a nose on legs and wants to use both bits of its anatomy to the full. Finding things and bringing them back to you is natural and satisfying for it. It also gives you something you can do anywhere to enrich its exercise while engaging with you. So –

Hunting: Start with finding hidden titbits or toys. What to do to encourage quartering. What do you do when it goes on point? How wide should it run and for how long? Steve Wright

Pointing: Start with birds in the garden or flies in the backyard! Encourage steadiness. Flushing and preventing chasing. Introduction to caged game. Steve Wright

Retrieving: Playing with toys. Bringing toys back to hand. Varying articles, places and distance. Hidden retrieves. Developing temptations and increasing your control. Using dummies and introducing fur and feather. Cold game retrieving. Maurice Cooke

Water retrieve: Confidence boosting for young dogs. Maurice Cooke

MORE ADVANCED DOGS CAN BE GIVEN MORE ADVANCED EXERCISES – AND NOVICES WILL SEE A PROGRESSION OF STAGES TO AIM FOR BEFORE OUR NEXT TRAINING DAY IN 2019.

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 great outlets for their energy.

All these will take place at the same time and we expect you to move 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!

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.
