After the rain on the Saturday I was wondering what Sunday would bring, last time I ran a trial at Camerton storm Brian made it’s presence felt, so when Sunday dawned it was with trepidation that I peered out of the window, shouldn’t have worried, blue skies, warm sunshine and a gentle breeze, even Kate took her coat off.

What a relief, people were able to sit and chat in the sun whilst waiting their turn in level 1 and level 2.

Thanks to my helpers, Lynne and Anni, who scribed all day and then worked out the results. Kim, Neil and Shelley who were the runners and kept a steady flow of competitors ensuring the judges were never kept waiting which was brilliant as we had a lot to get through.

It proved to be a pretty full on day with judging starting at 9am for level 1 and finally finishing about 4.30pm with the last vehicle searches for level 2.

Kate Kemp and Shaun Kenvyn were the judges for both levels, splitting the searches between them, they both did a really excellent job setting searches that were fair to the level of the dogs but with a bit of a challenge giving the handlers the opportunity to demonstrate their handling. They both put real thought into the tests, thank you both for your time and excellent judging.

Lastly thank you to all the competitors for entering and being such a happy bunch of lovely people.

First of all I would like to say a big Thank You, to Pippa Bentham for asking me to Judge my first Scentwork Trial and it was an excellent idea to ask Kate Kemp to judge with me.

The weather was excellent for the first weekend in October and I felt the trial ran very smoothly, due to Pippa’s organisation and the great work of the scribes and runners.

There were some outstanding teams, namely Pat and Metz, Marie and Liberty, first and second Level 1 and Alison and Dylan first in Level 2. Really nice to see Marie and Liberty achieve their excellent award in Level 1 and Alison and Dylan in Level 2. Congratulations to both teams!!

Absolute please to watch everyone working with their dogs, yes nerves get in the way occasionally for the humans but I am sure all the dogs had a great time!!
