Milton Show 2009

MILTON SHOW DOG AGILITY COMPETITION A SUCCESS.

The Agility and Jumping Competitions run by the Milton Ulladulla Dog Training Club at the Milton Show on Saturday, 21st of February, were a huge success according to both spectators and participants. A record number of entries from as far afield as Wollongong and Dapto entered the competitions, which were generously sponsored by Hills Science Diet, a premier specialist Dog Food manufacturer. As well as the winners receiving generous supplies of Hills Science Diet for their dogs, all competitors received beautiful sashes from the Milton Show Society, as did the winners of each category, with First Prize winner also receiving a commemorative Milton Show mug and a cash prize.

Spectators were treated to a wonderful variety of dogs taking part, from cheeky Jack Russel terriers, elegant Shetland Sheepdogs and Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, the blazingly fast Border Collies and Staffordshire Bull Terriers and the Australian Kelpie and Cattle Dogs. It was a 'Fun' event and although run to Australian competition standards and scored accordingly was not sanctioned by the Australian Dog Council so the handlers skills ranged from not very skilled - which provided many laughs for spectators as dogs and handlers got themselves in all sorts of tangles through the course - to very highly skilled which drew wonderful applause as dog and handler flowed in complete harmony through the obstacles.
It was enjoyed by young and old alike.

The Milton Ulladulla Dog Training Club would like to thank all participants in these competitions who made it such an enjoyable spectacle: the spectators who came along and made all the encouraging and appropriate noises at the appropriate times: The Milton Show Society for including the events as part of the show's schedule: Peter Hudson and Rosie Milton for judging the events so efficiently: for Liz Katacsonji, Jenny Patch, Rick Venning, Bob Puttock, Ken Smith and Diane Richmond for assisting in various capacities towards the smooth operation of both events: and to Hills Science Diet for their very generous sponsorship of the events. It is hoped that this will become an annual feature of future Milton Shows.
