As usual, the last training evening before the Christmas break was devoted to our Christmas Party.
Some 15 dogs and their well trained owners turned up to enjoy themselves with a number of traditional doggy party games, socialise and tuck into the party food.

And Here We All Are

Dave was kept busy providing tea and coffee, and Lyndon was persuaded to judge the Fancy Dress competition, while Beryl, Lauren, Val organised the games and competitions, Pete kept the scores and took the photos, and Pauline and Wendy were kept busy providing encouragement and support.

Proceedings opened with the 'SIT, DOWN STAND GAME', which was won by SARA & WARWICK .

Then came the two Fancy Dress Competitions - Winner of the YOUNG DOGS FANCY DRESS (under 9 months old) was HARLEY with SHARON, Second was LOLA with BETH and Third was DEXTER with CATHERINE.
The OLDER DOGS FANCY DRESS (over 9 months old) was won by EVIE with GARY, Second was BISCUITS with PAUL and Third were NORMAN & WARWICK with SARA.

Once everyone had returned their dogs' appearance to something approaching normality, we continued with the 'FASTEST RECALL GAME', in which as well as being fast, the dogs had to stop & sit by their owners. After several knockout heats, the game was won by LOLA & BETH .

Those present were then divided into two teams - 'A' & 'B' for the next two games, the first of which was the 'SNOWBALL & SPOON RACE', which was won by TEAM 'B'

The last game before the food break was the 'DRESSING UP RACE', which was won by TEAM 'A', leaving the honours even.

Everyone contributed to the wonderful spread on the food table , but especially notable were the cake provided by Mac and the biscuits provided by Beth (I think, but my apologies if I've got that wrong!).

After tucking into the food, the games resumed with 'PASS THE PARCEL', which was won by BOBBY & SHARON.

The final game was, 'MUSICAL CRACKERS', which was won by JESS & JOE.

As they left, everyone was presented with a small gift for their dog; we hope you all enjoyed the party, and look forward to taking your training to new heights in 2013, when Classes resume on MONDAY 7th JANUARY 2013.
