Thank you to everyone who entered the Level 1 trial in Linlithgow. Sadly, although we had dry weather, the humidity was high and storms were on the way and I think this affected the dogs more than we realised!
The dogs found it quite hot work and many of them lost their motivation to search, which although was disheartening for the handlers, gave us a number of valuable lessons to be taken from each search.
Our judge done her best to keep everyone positive and most went away with something positive to work on for next time.
For the dogs who did manage to work through the environmental issues, 2 of them qualified for their L1 Excellent title and the dog placed 2nd was on his first trial!
Thank you to our scribe Gillian Reid and our runner Jordan Reid, who stepped in at short notice to assist, and done so with a positive, friendly manner, helping the teams feel at ease and keeping everything running smoothly.
Overall, the camaraderie and sportsmanship was heart warming and I thank everyone for supporting each other throughout.
Avril Young, PCT-A
