7.1.23    Escrick

8.1.23   Escrick    

Conclusion of the meeting at 12.30 to address a couple of matters arising from last week

1. The rules for running a nursery dog remain the same...any prize not in a Nursery eliminates them.

2.  New Handlers. The meeting agreed our society needs new handlers. Several members knew of young shepherds and farmers who had expressed an interest in trialling,and it was agreed that should they want to come they could run in all together in the middle of the day with assisstance as required from all present. Their course would be send your dog from the fetch gates to lift, fetch, drive to first obstacle and go to the pen.  


And you must be over 18 inches tall to compete.

There will be a meeting at 12.30 to address a couple of matters arising from last week.

Meeting 0n 29.10.22  at  12.30  discuss

Rules of eligibility for Nursery dogs

Rules     10.  Eligible Nursery dogs will not have won any prizes of any sort in any trial other than a Nursery except a Young Handler place. Two firsts in a Nursery season eliminate that dog from the next year’s Nurseries.


And   11. A Nursery dog can complete its Nursery season if it is placed in an Open trial after the 1st of the October Nurseries of that season.


New handlers

The object is to encourage, whilst reducing, as far as possible, the potential for extra stress and accidental injury/damage to either sheep or property of the host.

Starting new handlers from the fetch gates, shortening the drive and help on the course from an experienced person may improve the situation.
