On Sunday the 1st of November we held a Grooming & Handling seminar at Oake Village hall.
The event was aimed to help both experienced show people and new people coming into the breed.
We were very fortunate to have Melissa Loverock come along for the day to give us a full demonstration on how best to present your dog for the show ring, plus plenty of trimming and grooming tips. Plenty of time was had to ask questions throughout the morning, plus time to join up in groups to have more one to one help. It gave a good insight how best to prepare your dog for the show ring.
After a good lunch and a short time to have a good chat about the morning’s event we followed on with a ring craft demo from Sue Porter and then one to one help with Cheryl Bawden and myself. This gave everyone time to ask many questions how best to get the most from their dog in the show ring. I feel it was a very valuable day for many that attended.
I would like to thank all who helped organise the event, also all the committee for their help on the day. My thanks go to Anthony Maidment for taking the photos now up on the web page.
