We scooped the Pawscar for ‘Training Class of the Year’ at an awards ceremony held on the eve of Crufts dog show.

Votes were cast online from all over the country to select us as the winners over other shortlisted clubs in Plymouth and Scotland.

A black tie event was held at the Metropole Hotel at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham in aid of the Peek A Boo Trust which donates funds to canine and children’s charities.

The canine equivalent of the Oscars, this event saw a golden envelope opened before Jersey were declared as the winners.

President Christine Marett said: “It was an amazing achievement to reach the final three clubs, but to be declared overall winners was a very proud moment. I was honoured to collect the award on behalf of the committee, trainers and members. It is a recognition of their efforts week in, week out, training their dogs. Thanks to all who voted for us. We felt we had the whole island behind us.”

Our Club was founded in 1981 from a training class run by the late Diana Abbott and Brian Cummins and expanded by Jacqui Hurley. Christine, who herself has served on the committee for over 25 years, paid tribute to past members, committee members and trainers.

Many of our members traveled to Crufts & came back with place cards. Huge congratulations must go to Steve Lawson’s Whippet, Ranveli Blue Breeze at Kipipiriking, aka KK who took Best Dog & the Dog CC only to be beaten by the dog who eventually took Best In Show.

February saw the Kennel Club of Jersey hold the Channel Islands Dog of the Year. The breed show was judged by Ben Reynolds Frost. The following club members dogs made the final seven in the adult competition, Jane Le Claire’s Great Dane, Dainoak Absolutely Lovely & my Cesky Terrier, Gayteckels Bak In The Abbott. Puppy finalists owned by club members were Marilyn Evans Golden Retriever Mardagold Diamond Geezer, Carla Mackay’s Chinese Crested, New in Town of Angel’s Legacy for Tarabish & Collette Allen’s Shetland Sheepdog, Milesend Black Ink for Ribans. My Cesky Terrier, Lastarean Grace And Favour for Gayteckels was Reserve Best Veteran.

The obedience competition was judged by club member, Marcel Guibout. The club had two members in these finals, Wendy Wright with her Border Collie, Foxbarton Black Queen & Mick De la Haye with his Border Collie, Canen Mo. Mick did extremely well winning the Novice & Class A. The agility was judged at Les Marais Indoor Centre with local judge Louise Eden. The club had one representative in this competition, Emma Lloyd & Lucky Bran.

In the handling points competition successful club members were Jade Perez & Robyn Boschat in the 17 – 24 yrs age group & myself in the over 25 yr category.

The hall was certainly buzzing with spectators, a bumper raffle & plenty of trade stands, perhaps a special mention should go to the Victoria College students & Jersey College for Girls students who were selling dog bandanas & home made dog treats as their entry in a local Jersey business competition. Three of our members also had stalls, Clare Power & Penny Chapman with their Paws 4 Love stand & Claire White with her Raw N More stand. The day finished off with a Gala Dinner in the presence of the Governor, His Excellency Sir Stephen Dalton & Lady Dalton at the Hotel Ambassadeur. The club is proud to say it was well represented at this event by our members.
