Camddwr Cup Final

Added: 12th October 2016

Camddwr Cup 2016

From the organisers:

The finals this year were once again held at Malvern Three Counties Autumn festival. This show works so well for us, and we are very grateful for their ongoing commitment to these events.

The Camddwr Cup has been running now for several years, and as the names of handlers and dogs now grows on the silver perpetual cup, so does the quality of finalists for these events.

This year, was the first year with the addition of the Medium dogs event:

I think this worked extremely well and I am sure the handlers agreed that it definitely made for a new and exciting addition to the finals as 7 Medium dogs were invited to compete alongside the large dogs in both the warm up and final events.

We are so lucky to be blessed with such great weather again this year, and the Malvern hills make the best backdrop for this beautiful venue.

Once again, the standard did not disappoint, and some great partnerships did their best to secure their grip on that silver cup!

The prizes from our ever supportive sponsors for the Camddwr Cup were once again – amazing! I would like to sincerely thank our great brands who support us here – who provided our finalists with what must be the best bounty of prizes available at any Agility event in the UK! So thankyou to Salomon, Hurtta, Ruffwear, Back On Track, Nutriment, Tug E Nuff, Cani Pro Active, Green and Wilds, Yumove and FitPAWS for the most awesome prizes for our finalists! It’s fitting that these brands are so involved with this event as it is working with such great companies that makes us at Camddwr Canine Ltd proud to provide such unique quality products for Active Dogs (and handlers!)

This is our way of putting something back into the sport of agility, All the hard work is worth it to see the handlers and dogs enjoy their moment and make some great memories! -we are very grateful for the continued support of all those involved:

I would like to thank all of the finalists for coming and helping us make the event special, and also the lovely ring party who help us every year at this event J

So over to our Judge for the day- Dave Deaville- who did such a brilliant job at judging the finals for the day.

Camddwr Cup & Agility Secrets Finals 2016 – Judges report

  It was an honour to be invited to judge this year’s Camddwr Cup and Agility Secrets Finals at the Malvern Autumn show.

The morning invitation jumping event was for all the finalists.  The course was flowing with a couple of places that tested the dog & handlers partnership, especially the weave entry.  The leading times were very close with Lynette Chant & Pannursed Push the Button edging ahead to win out of the 10 clear rounds. Full results of the morning invitation below.



Malvern was resplendent in sunshine for the Agility Secrets Final.  The course was open & flowing, giving the dogs a chance to show off their speed to the large crowd of spectators.  There was some excellent sub 33 second clears from Belle Howlett, Will Verney and Nicole Turner as the lead changed hands.  A rolled pole marred the quickest time posted by Georgina Baker.  We also had a couple of examples of that rare handling technique – layering the electrical box…  

This was the first year that medium dogs had qualified for the finals and, right at the end, Claire Bacon & Tynever Little Hooligan put in a super display to edge out the collies and win the title. Look below for full results of the Agility Secrets jumping final


Camddwr Cup Final

A steady breeze dictated a couple of last minute course changes before the Camddwr Cup final commenced.  Again a flowing course but with just enough work to test the handlers.  There were a few missed contacts with handlers pushing for a quick time.

This turned out to be the closest of all three events with the top three being separated by less than ¼ second.  There were 6 clears in all.  An honourable mention to both Sara Bacon and Jack Greenwood who came so close but they were pipped by a lovely controlled round by Barrie James and Mendipstar Rumour Has It who proved to be a popular and deserved winner. Full results for the Camddwr Cup final below.

Many thanks to all my ring party for an excellent job.

Also thanks again to Camddwr Canine Ltd , Agility Secrets and RAS Rosettes for running these great events for our sport.
