Level 1 Trial, Linlithgow, 24 November 2018
Firstly, a huge thank you to all our participants who travelled from near and far for our first Level 1 trial in Linlithgow.
Unfortunately, the weather was not too kind to us and the rain did put some of the dogs off.
However despite this, a strange venue, new canine company and the first time trial nerves that inevitably surface, it was lovely to see the entrants support each other and share a chat with a coffee (although not much cake was consumed) while sheltering from the rain!
This was a first trial for the majority and although some of the teams found the conditions harder than in training, you should all be very proud of yourselves for getting to this stage in such a short space of time. We can all get caught up on the negatives, but I assure you that there are a lot of positives to be proud of – the things that didn’t go to plan are just criteria to work on for next time.
Thank you to our judge, Sandra Dee, for giving up her afternoon and to our time keeper for the day, Heather Dunn, and her dad, Alan for keeping the tea, encouragement, and running order flowing.
