Iron Acton K9 Club
Iron Acton K9 Club is listed with the Kennel Club
. The club was formed by a group of friends living in Iron Acton, Frampton Cottrell, Rangeworthy and Yate who all enjoy training and working with their dogs. Initially we were a small group who met once a week in Iron Acton to do Flyball
. From that small start we evolved and increased our activities to include agility
, and gundog scurry
in Iron Acton. We formed another section to include obedience training
following the Kennel Club Good Citizens Scheme and basic Rally training
in Rangeworthy Village Hall.

May Day Fun and Games
We all had a lovely day at Iron Acton May Day. The weather was kind to us - lovely and sunny, only raining at the end of the afternoon as we were starting to pack away. Lots of our dogs and handlers took part in an obedience and agility display in the ring on the green. Things went mostly to plan but a few mishaps added to the entertainment. I think the crowd enjoyed our display – particularly Paul Hampson with his staffie Lexie who managed to rugby tackle Karen to the ground from behind!!! We all enjoyed working together. We spent most of the day in the Parish Meadows doing flyball and a fun dogstacle course. Emma Cook with Remy were the winners of the flyball competition beating Paul and Lexie into second place by 0.3 seconds. We raised £50 which will be passed on to Dogs for Good to help train Seizure Alert Dogs.
Obedience training on Mondays at Rangeworthy Village Hall is well supported. Recent Puppy successes were Jennifer Ellard with Hugo, Tarryn Auld with Kumba, Neil Dyer with Treasure, Heather Sellick with Alfie, Sue Hart with Berry, Rob McKean with Mia, Vicky Dyer with Millie, Dave Hockey with Bandit, Charlotte Walker with Rosco, Mark Teulon with Archie and Christine Rogers with Ziggy.
Bronze successes were Louise Drew Morgan with Daphne, Ann Weaver with Daisy, and Becky Stevenson with Prince. Silver passes were Mark Brookes with Seve, Ella Starr with Travis, Barbara Broom with Lola, and Lyn Smith with Mitzi. Good work everyone. Gold assessments are planned for May and June.
Club class is now held on Tuesday evenings when the handlers and dogs work on fun exercises and tricks to develop their skills and working partnerships. Activity members have been meeting on Sunday afternoons to enjoy agility training, hay bale scurry, flyball and dummy retrieves. We have lots of fun and our dogs all enjoy the exercise and socialisation.
Our club Novelty Show and Activities Show will be on Sunday 9th July. All dogs living in Iron Acton are welcome to come along. We’ll be looking for waggy tails, pretty bitches, handsome dogs, best puppy, best junior, best adult, best veteran etc as well as competing over a dogstacle course. Please ring us on the numbers below for more information.
