10th Anniversary Celebrations

Dear Members

 

I hope you will all be able to join us for our 10th Anniversary celebrations on 7th & 8th September 2019 at Forest Oak Farm Lydney. We have a number of events happening over the weekend:

  • Our Open Show will be held on the Saturday and we have a French Breed Specialist – Alain Thevenon – judging for us.

Please find attached a copy of the Schedule. If you would like me to post you a paper copy, please email me to confirm. I will have copies with me at National Working & Pastoral Breeds and Evesham next weekend.

  • For the first time in the UK, we are running a Beauceron Club Sheep Herding Test, a fun opportunity to test your Beauceron’s natural aptitude with sheep – no previous experience of sheep working is required. Attached is an outline of the test. To book your dog in, please email stevedobes@btinternet.com. The cost of the test is £15. Beaucerons passing the test will be included in a Roll of Honour on our website.

 

  • We have a Fun Dog Show on the Sunday, attached is the flyer. Our previous Fun Shows have proved to be very popular. We are again expecting to have a Fun Agility Course and Good Citizen tests.

 

  • For anyone aspiring to be a Beauceron Judge, we will be holding a Breed Appreciation Day on the Sunday, please email our Breed Education Co-ordinator Doug – bec@beauceronclubuk.org for further information. Or if you just want to learn more about the Beauceron, our morning session may interest you.

 

  • We will be running Character Tests throughout the weekend, these will be open to all dogs and will be at 2 levels – ‘Novice’ & ‘Adult’.

 

  • There will also be a quiz you can join in with through the weekend and a raffle – prize donations gratefully received.

We look forward to seeing you all soon.

Kind regards
