SDAS Committee

We would like to welcome Ben and Sharon Turrell onto the committee, as we look forward to the season starting.


We would also like to thank Jambo and Ashleigh for all of their hard work over the past seasons, they have decided to take a break from the committee to allow them to concentrate on training this season. Both have worked tirelessly during their time on the committee, and I’m sure I speak for, not only the committee, but all SDAS members, when I say their work really has been appreciated.


There will be a change in roles among the committee and details of which roles each member is filling will be updated soon.

ConfirmedRace Dates, Season 2017/18

The committee, and in particular, Tim, has been busy securing race venues in preparation for season 2017/18. The following race dates have been agreed;

Oct 28/29 Sherwood
Nov 11/12 Kershope

Dec 9/10 Darnaway
Jan 20/21 Culbin
Feb 10/11 Rothes
Mar 3/4 Ford
Mar 31/ April 1  New Venue to be arranged.

we look forward to seeing everybody again in the new season.

We have had one of our members contact the committee this week to inform us that their dogs have shown signs of kennel cough. After attending the vets it looks likely that this is the cause for the dogs’ coughing, and so they have asked us to inform all of those who attended Ford so that everyone can be on the lookout for any symptoms. As always, we ask our members to be vigilant with any illnesses to reduce spread to other kennels, and we greatly appreciate our member’s open honesty and consideration of others so that they are able to monitor their own dogs.

Race Results, Bowland Trails

Every season the last race seems to come round all too quickly.

This has been a great season for SDAS with some new trails and many new members, seeing an increase in the mono-sport classes. It was great to have Eagle Brae and Rothes back on the calendar, we hope to visit these trails again next season.

We are also looking forward to more new venues in season 2017/18, dates will be announced as soon as possible to let everyone book their holidays!

Thank you to Alan Daniels and Debbie Ward for their contribution to the organisation and running of races throughout the season, they will be missed on the committee, but we will be pleased to see Alan race his home-bred pups next season.

On behalf of the SDAS committee, thank you again to all our members for making the season a fun and enjoyable one.
