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.

Our Annual club show was held in July in the village, we were lucky to have a mostly dry day but one that wasn’t too hot for the dogs. We started with the activities and it was lovely to see so many of our members come along to try their skills on the various courses.
Winners of the Hay Bale Scurry were Remy with Meryl, winners of the Agility Challenge were Mr Bo with Becky ( a late substitute for her mum Sue – seems Becky can run quicker), Flyball winners were Bella with Kerry – this was the first time they had tried flyball and were very quick – one to watch in the future, Gun Dog retrieve winners were Poppy with Ruth – this pairing have worked very hard in their training and it was lovely to see that hard work pay dividends. Dogstacle course winners were Tara with Sue – well done the golden (or black in this case) oldies.
Overall Activity Challenge champions were Remy & Meryl, joint Reserve Champions were Lou & Daphne and Dave & Doris. Great work everyone.
The activities were followed by a much enjoyed communal picnic and then on to the novelty show which was really well supported with over 20 dogs in some of the classes.
Best Pedigree adult was Esme with Lindy, Best Crossbreed adult was Siku with Linzi, Best Pedigree Puppy Darcy with Lorraine, and Cutest Cross breed Puppy joint winners were Poppy with Cheryl and Percy with Rose. Best Golden Oldies were Shya & Karen, Prettiest Bitch was Indi with Heather, Handsomest Dog was Dennis with Micky, Best Brace were Sherpa & Saxon with Tori, Waggiest Tail was Milo with Bernice, Best Tricks was Mr Bo with Becky, and Dog the Judge would take home was Darcy with Lorraine.
Show champion was Darcy with Lorraine and Reserve Champion was Percy with Rose.
A lovely day was had by all.
