The weather was cool but dry for our Level 1 and Level 5 Trials at Rubery today.
Felicity Ashford and Liz Ormerod were judging the Level 1 in the morning. We saw some lovely empathetic handling and there were some very good scores. Felicity then competed in the Level 5 which she went on to win. Red lived up to his name and won the red rosette in the Level 1 Trial for Katie at their first attempt at Scentwork. Well done team Red!
Ten dog/handler teams entered in the afternoon but only three qualified. Liz set a fair but challenging Level 5 Trial. Congratulations to Felicity for taking 1st place and to Hazell & Teddy who came 2nd on the same score but only 26 seconds behind Felicity!
From what I observed, the handlers would have benefitted from encouraging their dogs to get their noses up as a lot were losing points by not doing so.
Many thanks to Liz and Felicity for judging today and also to Helen, Michelle, Glenis for scribing and Kathy and Rob for running.
I hope everyone enjoyed the experience and I look forward to seeing you all again soon.
