Firstly, thank you to Rick Burgess and Kate Kemp of Scentwork Wessex for asking me to judge their level 1 trial at Shoscombe village Hall.
Many thanks to Sue for time keeping and writing up the score sheets. Finally thank you to the competitors for entering and accepting my decisions.
What an excellently trained bunch they are, all bar one down to the training expertise of Rick and Kate, they are a credit to you both.
In 1st place with 100% Lindsay Gilmore with Hector a 9-year-old Hungarian Vizsla, he was brilliantly accurate and wasted no time.
2nd Lindsay again but this time with Stanley, a somewhat younger Hungarian Vizsla, what can I say about Stanley – except – wow – what a dog! Manic – yes, exuberant – yes, did the boxes and luggage in 0.03 seconds! Such potential which once you’ve harnessed the energy you’ll both be unstoppable.
3rd Kim Ball with our youngest dog, Working Cocker Mili who is only 9 months old. She’s fabulous and so cute.
4th Mick Hawkins with Cookie an English Springer Spaniel – beautifully handled. Well done.
All competitors qualified and in no particular order:
Ian Arrowsmith with Ruby, Working Cocker
