Weimie League 2008

The Weimaraner Agility League 2008 starts on 1 January and the subscription fee for this year is £3.50. Entry forms are now available for 2008. New and old members are welcome. Current members should email Debbie Stewart to update their info including the grade and age of each dog. All the details are on the form, but if you have any further questions you can either call tel. 01388 710428 or email weimleague@homecall.co.uk 

Awards are given to the top three Weimies and handlers at the end of the year plus Best Starter, Veteran and Special Achievement awards. Additionally there are group winners and runners up. The groups are made up of the different grades, giving each level a chance to win. All handlers can take part in the Weimaraner Agility Challenge, hopefully to be held further south next year so more members can enter. As well as paying for rosettes and trophies, subscription fees help towards sponsoring the Dog Trust's Oakfield Old Dogs Home, providing care for the golden oldies.

Debbie said, 'On behalf of the Weimaraner Agility League I would like to thank Ellen for all her support and hard work keeping the website going and helping to promote our breed.'

Rules and entry forms can be down loaded here.

The Weimaraner Agility League Challenge Cup

As the day was drawing to a close, the Weimaraner handlers were still walking their course which was set by Phil Spilman. Our 'volunteered' commentator Brenda Tenten then announced the start of The Challenge Cup final -minus the microphone due to a technical hitch - to a gathering of spectators who hadn’t quite had enough agility for that day.

Janet Hudson was first on the line with her youngster Ripley (Braithwaite Angel I’m not) but unfortunately fated with one of the two eliminations of the competition. The second elimination came with our next dog to run Maia (Trubon Bilke Trente), handled by Mike Brook. The competition was not off to a good start. What if they were all eliminated?

Luckily, the next three dogs to run only had minor faults and the first clear round came when golden oldie Scully (Misty Breeze), aged 11, run by Ann Miller completed the course in 45.84 seconds.  One of the younger competitors - that’s the dog, not the handler - Oliver (Braithwaite Agate) Ripley’s brother) handled by Debbie Stewart brought on the next clear round, and his first of the season in 43.09 seconds!

The fastest time but with 20 faults was claimed by Morgan (Sea Lane Sprinter), handled by Clive Hudson, with a time of 30.55 seconds. But the winner with a clear round of 32.27 seconds was Janet Hudson’s second dog to run Chase (Sireva Treat).  Chase has recently recovered from a serious operation following an attack of bloat. At one time, it was touch and go if he would pull through. Janet had said earlier she was just pleased he was here to take part, but to actually win it, was wonderful. Well done Chase!

A special thank you on behalf of the Weimaraner Agility League goes to our judge Phil, the spectators for their support, our commentator Brenda, Jackie Kenny for accommodating our event at the show and to Ian of AIS Agility for the winner's prize donation.

Weimaraner Agility League Match Report

The annual Weimaraner Agility League Match took place at the Paws &  Tails Agility Club Training venue in Fulstow, North East Lincolnshire on Saturday, 11 august 2007. Many thanks to Paws and Tails for use of the venue and equipment.

The weather was perfect, sunny and warm, but not too hot for the dogs. Paws and Tails members Lynn and Tracy manned the BBQ first thing in the morning, providing welcome bacon and sausage buns.

Our Judges for the day, Ian and Sue Bateman, gave us four interesting courses, starting with an Agility course followed by a Jumping course. The third course was a Judges Special Jumping class made up of just hurdles and a tunnel - ideal for the inexperienced and 'old hands' alike. The final class of the day was a mixed pairs including a Weimie with 'another breed,'  A list of results is published below.

A cold buffet was laid on at lunchtime. During the afternoon a welcome visit was made by the local Ice Cream Van! There was a raffle with lots of lovely prizes kindly donated by the competitors and a doggy quiz sheet, which together raised £42 for Weimaraner Rescue.

Also during the afternoon, Tracy Warren kindly Judged a special Nursery competition for some youngsters. There were some very promising fast dogs amongst these and the winner was Donna Hurlock with Dash.

Finally at the end of the day everyone attended the presentation. Rosettes were given to both Weimaraners and ABWs (Anything But Weimaraners) for each class and trophies to the overall placed dogs as follows: -

Weimaraners

  1. Alan Score with Kaos

  2. Ann Miller with Scully

  3. Fiona Godsmark with Jasmine

Best Veteran - Ann Miller with Scully

The Old Boot Trophy - This is a special perpetual trophy in memory of Debbie Stewart's Weimaraner Willow (Beckstone Faye.) It is awarded to the Weimaraner who runs the closest time to Willow’s time over a past agility course. This year Alan Pickering won it with his very promising youngster Hudson . The ABW who ran the closest time to Willow's was actually Debbie’s Staffie, Tilly.

Anything But Weimaraners

  1. Alan Score with Zogun (Aussie)

  2. Tracy Toms with Ebony (Flat Coat)

Best Veteran - Tracy Toms with Ebony

Judge's special rosettes were also awarded to the following:-

  • Debbie Downs with Shadow –  Showing most promise.

  • Clive Hudson with Skye – In recognition of Skye running his very last agility course due to retirement. He will, however, still be doing Allsorts and Veteran Jumping classes.

  • Janet Hudson – Most interesting handling technique – i.e. colliding with her dog and ending up on her backside!

Weimaraner Agility League Challenge Cup

This Years Weimaraner Agility League Challenge Cup class is being held at The Dog Vegas Show on Saturday, 25 August and is being Judged by Phil Spilman. Thanks must go to Jackie Kenny and her Dog Vegas Committee for kindly allowing the Challenge Cup to be run at this show. The schedule and entry form for the Dog Vegas Show classes can be downloaded from the Agilitynet schedules page. Entry forms for the Weimaraner Challenge Cup class can be obtained from Debbie Stewart.

Team Dash Success

Weimaraner League members recently had a wonderful success in the Team Dash competition at the Easter Dog Vegas Agility Show. Three Weimaraners and handlers Mike Brook with Trubon Bilke Trente (Miai), Debbie Stewart with Sireva Ritzy (Breeze) and Janet Hudson with Sireva Treat (Chase) all went clear. Due the the imposed retirement of the 4th Weimaraner, Clive Hudsons Sireva Spritzer (Skye) the reserve dog had to be run. This was Mike Brook's 'brown Weimaraner' (actually a Vizsla) Nicael Maple JW (Anya), handled by Diane Besford who also managed a clear round. This gave the team third place overall.
