The 2018 Round-up

Well as always I intended a quieter one but did not succeed! As planned I did not show and despite both my girls being eligible I did not bother attending CRUFTS. I planned on quiet times training at home which I did a little of and I did the odd planned obedience competition training round (at I think 2 shows) but sadly the heel work to music had to be let go as the costs were simply to high to continue.

Kodi turned 10 in Febuary and I had planned the time to focus on time well spent in the moment with him but instead finally our plans came together and we were able to have our long awaited 2nd and last litter from our lovely Rhea. This meant a solid 2 months spent seeing her through pregnancy then whelping and another 2 months raising our babies but it has been worth every bit of blood, sweat and tears as they are all simply gorgeous, find out more about them in my blog posts.

Once again I have only listed my own dogs this year and not those I bred as its too hard to keep up with everyones results but as always I wish them all the best in all that they do and it must be noted that Roo made it to grade 5 agility and Dottie managed some great agility placements at her debut show! Dottie also managed a 4th in Special Beginners at the N&S HPR Working test and outright won the scurry that day, clever girl!

Our puppies have flown the nest and we hope to get back to competition training now.

Last update July 2017 – Whilst retired Kodi was awarded his Kyra Sundance TD-ROM title which is given to those producing offspring that achieve the required amount of titles and is awarded to show he produces ‘fine offspring’. Clever boy!

Kodi began enjoying his retirement at 8 years old. His best year was 2010 where he would have been the Top Longhaired Weimaraner based on the clubs points system but at the time I was unfortunately informed that agility didn’t count towards the points and therefore my claim didn’t go through.

Kodi ended his show career with:
4 x Best of Breeds (including a group shortlist)
4 x Best AVNSC
6 x Reserve Best of Breeds
Numerous class wins at Championship & Open shows

Kodi ended his agility career with:
Numerous placements in KC and UKA events including class wins and trophys, also placed within the Gundog League and ends his UKA career as:
Steeplechase Senior
Performance Novice

From just 3 Kennel Club Shows Kodi accumulated 44 of the 200 points required to earn his Bronze Agility Warrant, unfortunately for Kodi I preferred the UKA agility shows so he never attended enough KC ones to get his warrant.
