The 2019 Grand Final Judges

Jillian Sawyer and Robin Pealing

Jillian Sawyer2
Jillian Sawyer

Jillian started agility approximately 22 years ago with her Japanese Spitz, Jita.   Jillian and her family are all involved in the sport and have competed with all sized dogs both at UKA and Kennel Club.  Her last dog took her to Champ level at UKA and Grade 7 at Kennel Club and she also competed in Masters and Championship Classes.  Her current dog, a Spitz x Collie, is Grade 4 at Kennel Club and Senior at UKA.

Jillian started judging at UKA in 2014 and has judged all levels including Masters and qualifiers. She has also been a Kennel Club judge since 2011 judging all levels except Championship, but including various Crufts and Olympia qualifiers.  She also judged one of the Italian WAO qualifier heats in 2015 and really enjoyed the experience, making lots of friends.  Jillian was also Team Manager for the WAO Australian Team in Italy and Spain, and has been part of the WAO crew for the past 3 years.

Jillian is passionate about ensuring her courses are grade appropriate and test the skills a dog should have but are also fun to run.  She has completed the Global Judging Program and felt she gained a lot of information from that, giving her more confidence and knowledge in her judging.  She is due to attend the Global Judging Design Course in 2019.  This year Jillian has just embarked on a new venture ‘Doghouse Training’ having worked with a charity supporting families with children with additional needs for the past 11 years.

Jillian is honoured to be ask to judge the UKA Grand Finals in 2019 and looks forward to seeing everyone who has qualified run her courses.

Robin Pealing
Robin Pealing

Robin has lived with gundogs for over 40 years and has resided on the edge of the moor in south Devon for over 30.

He has been involved in agility since 2010 competing with spaniels Molly (now retired) and Fenn. Although he takes much pleasure from competing, Robin feels that he is equally happy to put something back into the sport to support and promote the fun of dog agility for everyone at every level.

Robin made a conscious decision to attend the GJP program in early 2016 as a precursor to setting out as a judge to ensure that his judging ‘career’ started off on the right foot. He now judges and ring manages for UKA shows regularly across the country.

In January 2018 he became a GJP Affiliated Judge, continuing on the belief that the ideals of the GJP program promote, not only consistency and professionalism but also enjoyment and participation for all levels and capability of handlers and their dogs within the agility community.

Robin says: “I am really excited by this opportunity; it is a privilege and honour to be invited to judge at the Grand Finals. If I can present courses that are enjoyable to run and still provide the element of challenge required at this level and potentially for some provide more ‘homework’ for the new season I would consider it a job well done.

Do not however forget that at the end of the day we all get to take the best dog home.”
