    This past weekend Cash & I entered and qualified in the BCOS Grand Prix obedience finals which was certainly an experience. In addition to qualifying and performing our finals round, we entered 'new to UK soil' FCI inspired classes. These classes included things such as send aways, distance control, stop in motions, recalls over hurdles etc, and to my utter amazement we ended up gaining a top three position and winning a Bronze place! Our morning round didn't go so well but I think he redeemed himself :D

    Pics of our spoils!

    Thank you for the kind words.

    Mega well done. I'm a huge fan and supporter of BCOS and have judged for them several times, including the initial venture at Wood Green, Huntingdon back in 2014. Unfortunately, due to current ill health, I wasn't able to attend this year.

    Sorry to hear that :( I enjoyed our mini session with you at the BCOS training day last year. Hopefully we will meet again.

    I would like to do a BCOS show at some point. I was going to do one last year, but it clashed with something else. I'd be interested to know more details of what you had to do in the FCI inspired class.

    And well done of course!

    You should! It's such a great atmosphere at BCOS shows and everyone is so warm & friendly. You can join their FB page to find any upcoming shows :)

    The FCI grade 1 class we entered included a send away, heelwork of course including a bit of fast pace, retrieve, recall, recall over a hurdle, stop in motion, go around an object, and distance control. When you collect your dog from the down you would also have to command them back into heel before setting off/exercise finished. It was really fun actually. We was told Cash was the only dog to send away into the box! Alot of the others were totally confused. We'll certainly be taking part next year too.

    Fabulous, well done all concerned. May it encourage more people to give these things a try.
