Level 1 report:
I’d firstly like to thank everyone for coming to our seaside trial! It was a very busy level 1, even with 3 dogs withdrawn it left a very busy 17 dogs to work through. Our runners and helpers made this flow really well with a special thanks to Jil Harper and Wendy Coulson here. The competition was a very close one with so many fantastic dogs in attendance. Up until the boxes and bags Ash & Sarah had put in some really fast unbeatable times , but unfortunately became a little too excited with the boxes and bags scenario and had a little too much fun lol! Keep working and she will be an amazing dog!
Christine with GSD Teasel was also doing some lovely fast work but unfortunately didnt go to source on the table and chairs and picked the wrong one. A shame but some super work. Quite a few people on their first trial Mandy & Fred , Christine & Santi , Jean & Neah, Wendy with Bandit and Talie. Well done to Jean and Neah with a fantastic clean sweep and also Wendy and Talie with a clean sweep. I hope now you have done a competition the nerves will be less for the next one, some lovely work you should be proud of, a couple of handler errors with early calls but we all learn by our mistakes onwards and upwards.
Congratulations to Chris and Axl, what a super smart dog he is, and now you are so very close to gaining your Excellent best of wishes in your next competition. In second place was Root the Estrela , same point as first place but slightly slower time. You’ve worked so hard for that placing well done. Third place was the junior handler Molly with Cattle Dog Pig, a team growing in confidence, slightly slower but same score.
I particularly enjoyed the breed variation at this competition, really does show its open to everyone and i love to see this diversity. I hope everyone had fun and we do hope you will visit again. Thank you.
The huge entry for level 1 didn’t cross over into level 2 unfortunately! With a couple of dogs withdrawn as well it made it a quick competition!
Wendy & River , Jil & Herbie both gained their excellent titles running 1st and second. Herbie struggled a little bit on the floor in the hall bless him and was slightly distracted. But was super fast on the tables and chairs with the fastest search of the day. Wendy & River just missed out on the full 100 points with a miss of the dogs indication at only 4 seconds into the outside search, which allowed him to continue searching and eventually returning to the item with me still holding my breath! I’m sure all judges are the same – we want everyone to do well and find the find!
Carole and Zoe started out with a faultless incredibly quick search on the boxes and bags, some 12 seconds faster than the other dogs, but unfortunately became a little distracted as the competition went on, but still passing the level with happy enthusiasm.
We expect many more entries for the next level 2, thank you for those who competed i hope you had a fun afternoon
