As the situation with Covid-19 continues to improve, more 2021 trial dates are coming in. Several have been postponed until 2022 but more than expected (at this time) are planning to go ahead. If you are able to confirm a trial date please can you do so as soon as possible. We are now aiming to pull together a digital version of our normal diary (.pdf) in April /May. This will be emailed to paid up members. If there are any subsequent cancellations or late entries these will be posted on our website and social media as usual.
CCDGC/NWSDS membership subscriptions are due as normal on the 1st January. Details of how to pay are on page 4 of the 2020 diary an on our website.
It is looking more hopeful that the situation with Covid-19 will improve sufficiently by the summer to hold some trials and the Society is planning on this basis. We will try and produce a slimmed down diary if there are sufficient confirmed dates for this to be worthwhile e.g. dates from July onwards with any earlier dates posted on our media as below.
If this is possible diaries will be posted week commencing 3rd May.
Diaries will be posted to members who paid in 2020 as agreed by the Trustees in 2019. Unfortunately nearly 40 former members did not so will not receive a 2021 diary.
If it is not possible to produce a diary, dates will be publicised on our website and social media (a week before).
However, paid up members who are also members of our private group on Facebook (40% of our current membership) will be notified as and when dates are confirmed so are likely have greater advance notice. If you are on Facebook but not part of the group and are a paid up member please get in touch.
Nonetheless, we hope in these unprecedented times that you will continue to support the Society and still feel able to contribute to all the other facets including our championships, nurseries, media platforms, results, advertising services and meeting our regulatory requirements as a Charity.

TRIAL ENTRY CRITERIA (NWSDS including Affiliated Societies) (unless otherwise stated in members diary)
AGORED/OPEN: Any handler and dog, worldwide, no restrictions
DOSBARTH 2/CLASS 2: Dogs who have not been placed 1st or 2nd in an Open trial, held anywhere in the world
DOSBARTH 3/CLASS 3: UK & Ireland based handlers (not dogs) that have not won a single prize of more than £15 anywhere in the world.
Note: Individual handlers are responsible for the welfare (incl. possible injury) and conduct of their dogs and must carry out their own risk assessment of the tasks asked of their dogs during the trial e.g. deciding whether their dog(s) run the course, are fully fit to run the trial course and are kept under control/supervision at all times.
Congratulations go to Hefin Jones and Spotan (Open) and Dylan Edwards and Jet (Class 2) on their very successful seasons. 👏 🍾
