flatcoat club of scotland Fun Day

N/A

Lundin Links, Fife

Fife,

Scotland
Each year the Club organises a Fun Day to allow members and their dogs to let their hair down and enjoy themselves. This usually happens around June and so far we have managed to have great weather each time. The venue is usually within the central belt of Scotland.
Although the format of the day can change from year to year there are some activities that are in popular demand and therefore are available each year. These activities consist of Obedience tests, Agility course and Gundog Scurry. Other activities that have been organised are Working Trials, various competitions involving dogs and their owners, Photographic competitions etc.
The day normally starts at 10 am with the set events allowing everybody to go round each event as many times as they want. Each event has a scoring system and the best scores are totalled for each event with prizes awarded for the best at each plus an overall winner. It must be stressed that this is a fun day and it is the taking part that counts and not the winning especially as the prizes are not exactly prestigious!
The afternoon usually consists of various races where the participants are handicapped by having to race with their dogs as companions. This usually means that the fittest participant is brought down to the level of the unfittest as their dog ensures they are knobbled during the race. It is a great spectator sport watching owners trying to run one way when their dog is trying to go in another direction especially when it is being egged on by all the other participants and spectators!
On average there are approximately 30 – 40 dogs attend the fun day. It is not often you get to see the glorious spectacle of 30 – 40 Flatties having the freedom to enjoy themselves all at the same time in the same field. It’s a great day especially as bad words between dogs are few and far between.

5th of May 2014

we will start the walk at 11am, make sure you are there 15 minutes before that so we can all leave together at 11.

we can walk from there to the AEU Broads,.. or stick around at the Park (I am sure the dogs tell us where to go.)

at return we can all have a drink and or a snack at the cafe which is dog friendly and dogs can still run around!

It is flatcoat walkies but all dogs are welcome as long they are Happy to celebrate the flatcoat breed with us.

Calling all Flatcoats in the Scottish Borders!!!!…free chicken n’ cheese!!

Category : Uncategorized

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

haha made you look!! :-p

Since moving to the Borders (Galashiels) in January this year Taffs and I have met 14 flatcoats…with no effort! which makes me think there are more of you out there!

We have been meeting up with our new friends at various locations, most recently Bowmont Forrest which is just outside Kelso on the way to Morebattle and Yetholm. Bowmont Forrest is flatcoat heaven: miles of track with mud and water.

Everyone is very friendly, and I’m usually carrying enough cheese cubes to keep us all going incase we get lost! we have been working on our photoshoot at the end of each walk…it’s early days yet!

please let us know if you would like to join us and we will let you know when the next walk is planned for.
