Level 5: Judge - Ali Brannen

Trial Manager and Judges Reports

There was a morning group and an afternoon group once again for our Trial at Great Rollright – this time a Level 5. The afternoon weather was better than the morning but the enthusiasm was just the same from the dog teams.

Ali Brannen set a fair but challenging test for our eight dogs with half of them qualifying. Richard & Ziggy put in a sterling challenge and confidently won 1st place. A great team who will go far. Jan & Amber took 2nd place and the two Paulas with Ludo and Bonnie Jazz came joint 3rd on exactly the same
points and time. Ludo was the only dog of the day who managed to indicate the hanging coffee sack in front of the hooked up dog leads. Other dogs knocked the scent but their handlers weren’t expecting it to be there so they moved their dogs on. It’s always important to investigate those knocks.

My thanks go once again to Ali Brannen for judging and Hazell Williamson who has allowed us to become a bubble and let us put on these trials in her lovely home.

I hope you all enjoyed and look forward to seeing you again soon.
