Let’s applaud ourselves…we deserve it!

Let’s start the Glen of Imaal Terrier round up for this last weekend in the UK with the EFG Open Show. It continued the “double theme” of National Terrier with both Best Dog & Bitch going to the same kennel. Golden Spurs was Best Dog (and Best In Show) with Romainville Billy Whizz Reserve Best Dog who also took Reserve Best In Show. Best Bitch (and Best Opposite in Show) went to Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage over Jeonty Lola May at Wickholm as Reserve Bitch with Lola, at one month short of 10, taking Best Veteran. Best Puppy was Jeonty Glynis Making Magic at Zippor. The EFG is held in conjunction with Birmingham Gundog & Terrier-the only time currently that Glen people can show twice in one day under two different judges-with Boudivella Osca taking Best of Breed there and Jeonty Jyn A New Hope Best Bitch. Also a Glen was performing in the very competitive NSC classes with Kingcottage Boogie on Basil taking Best NSC at Llanelli and District Canine Society Open Dog Show .

A quick flip west to Ireland for the Mid West Champ Show and Best of Breed Abberann Cosmic Cowboy. East to mainland Europe and Latvia with a BOB for Marfidal Pleasant Surprise and then Lithuania for their National All Breed Show and Finnabair North American Nebulon who took home the BOB rosette. Not often results from the Czech Republic so excellent to hear that Sachem Sagittarius was BOB at Budejovice. Coming back this way again, to Antwerp, it was Jeonty Junior Fire and Ice flying the breed flag there to BOB.

Way west to the States and here are the Group placers. Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas was BOB, and Group 2, at Palouse Hills Dog Fanciers with half sister Keadeen’s Second Star To The Right Best Opposite and the result was the same for the second show and Lewis Clark Kennel Club.  Western Carolina Dog Fanciers Association saw another  2 Group placements, Gp 1 & Gp4, for Finnabair Double D Friend of A Friend. News of a Terrier Puppy Group 1 at the Central Ohio KC Puppy Match for Finnabair Broc Rua Pegasus with Shorlyne. Columbia Terrier and Old Dominion KC of Northern Virginia saw double Best of Breed for Tipperary Columbo with Finnabair Shorlyne Caatskills Comedy Tonight Best Opposite at both. Columbo was again BOB at Baltimore County KC. A Baby Puppy Group 1 for Kilkenny’s The Gift Outright to Irish Spirits at Central Ohio KC.

Breed brains were doing well and Jeonty Dreams A Dream with Karensbrae got her entry into The Good Citizen class at shows by qualifying at 8 months old. Kelli Whitfield sends news that “Griffin played NADAC agility on Friday. He earned his first Open Touch N Go qualifying score and first place as Winston cheered him on! Monique sends word “Ginny earned her first Q and placed first in a Novice Preferred Jumpers class at an AKC Agility trial this weekend!!!”

People, you are just amazing!!

EFG Open Show entry.

The EFG Open Show on April 22nd (next Sunday) will see an entry of 30 Glen of Imaal Terriers for judge Frank Kane. It’s a bigger entry than both Crufts and National Terrier and the largest Open Show number for quite a long time. So if you want to meet the breed Sports Connexion, Leamington Road, Ryton On Dunsmore, Coventry, CV8 3FL will be a good place to visit. Judging starts at 9.30 and-up to yet-it’s a great weather forecast!

Still getting the name out!

Glen of Imaal Terrier folk are still getting the name of the breed out and about. Pride of place this week has to go to the latest, and youngest, member of the “shout out” team. Finnabair Broc Rua Arda of Gleann was in Estonia at her first show and only went on to take Best Puppy and then Best Baby Puppy in Show! Also in Estonia at the Tallinn Winners Cairdiulacht Daibhi MacMiolmor was Best of Breed over Pearytail Bonnie B Goode. At the Terrier Specialty the following day Daibhi had the bow the paw as Madra Athas Ceinlys Chead Ghra was Best of Breed. In Finland at Vaasa International Dog Show Gleann Flatbone Stiubhard was Best of Breed with BOS being awarded to Gleann Dear Dandelion. Utrecht International Dog Show saw Boudivella Osca being awarded Best Dog & BOB with Boudivella Tegan Best Opposite.

In America Keadeen’s Second Star To The Right was at Moses Lake for BOB and Group 3. Jeonty Golden Memo was at a cluster of shows in California and took Best of Breed at both Northern California Terrier Association Shows as well as Sacremento KC.

Griffin was showing another talent by doing 5 AKC FAST CAT runs. FAST CAT is a timed 100 yard run with the dog chasing a mechanically operated lure. 19 miles and hour is going some in a short legged breed!

Congratulations everyone!

Kennel Club alter JCF-£10 single breed & it’s now a licence

Judges who award CCs in a single breed and do not aspire to judge any further breeds at any level will pay only £10 for a yearly judging licence under the Judges Competency Framework (JCF), the Kennel Club has announced.

This latest move has come about following extensive feedback received by the Kennel Club over the last year at Question Time events and JCF question and answer sessions led by Kennel Club committee members and staff. Previously, it had been announced that all judges under the JCF would have to join the Kennel Club Academy at the annual fee of £26, irrespective of the number of breeds they judge or aspire to judge. Under the latest plan, a new licensing scheme is to be introduced for all UK judges.

A single-breed CC judge paying the £10 licence fee who later decides that they wish to judge more than one breed must apply to the Kennel Club to pay the higher tariff. In both cases, full access to the growing range of educational resources available online via the Kennel Club Academy will be a benefit given at no extra cost to licensed judges.  This will include the opportunity to take and pass the Requirements of a Dog Show Judge exam every five years.

The Board has been able to make this announcement following a change in how the IT system for the JCF will be developed. In January, the Board agreed to invest in a new Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system to replace the existing databases and the IT for the JCF will become part of this project, thereby offering significant savings in terms of both set up and running costs, with upgrades being easier to implement. Both systems will enable Kennel Club services to become more modern and customer focussed.

During the many question and answer sessions, concerns had been expressed about the potential loss of single-breed CC judges from the show scene when the JCF eventually begins, which is why the Kennel Club is pleased to now be in a position to offer the £10 concession rate to these judges. Their knowledge and experience represent a very important part of the British pedigree dog scene which is vital to the future development of breeds and the next generation of judges.

The online JCF system is now due to go live in the second half of 2019 instead of in January. Breed clubs are still able to hold their educational events as soon as they have appointed their breed education co-ordinators and the results of any seminars held under the new code of best practice will be accepted under the JCF criteria as well as mentoring and observations held after the breed education co-ordinator meeting in July.

As a consequence of combining the two IT projects, the previously announced requirement that all those starting out on their judging career must be licensed at JCF Level 1 or above by 1st January 2019 has been put back to 1st January 2020.  This is a positive benefit for judges and provides a longer lead time for show societies which wish to appoint new judges.

Simon Luxmoore, Kennel Club Chairman, said: “The Kennel Club is aware that there has been much comment in some quarters about the idea of all judges paying a £26 fee, which is why, following the merging of the CRM IT and JCF projects, we are pleased to be able to pass on the estimated cost saving. The feedback also referred consistently to the introduction of the £26 cost of a licence to judge and therefore it was agreed to introduce this concept going forward as many seemed to be accepting of this.

“The merging of these projects will mean that the transition period will not begin for the JCF until 2020, but that does not mean that preparations are not going ahead as planned as far as the JCF is concerned. A good number of breed appreciation days have already been held and many more are planned. Breed clubs are appointing their breed education co-ordinators and are keen to move this project forward. All of that can continue. With positive feedback received, and the ‘Eye for a Dog’ assessments this April being fully subscribed, this will ensure that we are in a very good position when the JCF IT system finally goes live.”
