Todays Level 1 judge was Carole Thornley, who kindly travelled all the way from Shropshire to be with us today. I do hope the two hour drive was worth it!
I’d like to thank all competitors that made the trek out to us at Cleveleys. The weather was kind to us, even though it threatened rain a few times it never materialised. First up was the car search. The car search at cleveleys is always tricky due to parking constraints. We are working on this to make our future trials better. But that all said most people seemed to do well on this area with one search as quick as 7.4 seconds (Sarah Melling with Ash!!) Following that was exterior search, boxes & luggage and finally tables and chairs.
We had some new competitors today, and i really hope you had a good first trial now that the nerves have passed!! I know the trial did not go to everyones plan, but thats trials for you. I hope everyone has something to take away to train harder on, but lets not forget – we all take the best dog home.
Level 2 Judges report
Well this was a super tough competition today. Having seen these dogs work before, some were not at their best. However id like to say well done to the handlers for keeping the dogs motivated and doing your absolute utmost to encourage the dogs, Elaine Prescott i wish i could have awarded you ten fold for the work you put in.
The fastest element of search was Vicki Martins Malinois Kaiser doing a super quick 21 second table and chairs/ perimeter search. Tight leads and getting in your dogs way cost handling points today, but as the first level 2 comp you have done i would be very pleased with the job you both did.
Carole Thornleys Zoe was in a super mood today, she had so much fun with the boxes and bags. I know its wrong but i did love to see an old dog having so much fun!!!
The overall winner was Christine Cummins with GSD Teasel, the only dog who managed a clean sweep today – well done – lots of hard work went into this first place; congratulations it was so well deserved.
Thankyou everyone, i look forward to seeing you all in the future.
