Trial Manager and Judges Reports

Thank you Caroline for the invitation to judge today and thank you Zoe for scribing, a very well run trial on a lovely sunny day. The competitors were such a friendly group and whilst not all were successful without exception they accepted my decisions with a smile and a thank you, what a lovely lot. I saw some lovely searching with dogs coping well with nervous handlers. Rob stepped in to be the runner which was appreciated and kept a nice steady flow so no one was kept waiting. As you would expect with a level 1 there was the odd handling blip but nothing that couldn’t be sorted out, however I would suggest that in future before anyone enters a trial reading the guidelines for the level you are entering is a really good idea.

Thank you to all teams who entered the L1 trial at Quarley today, it was a lovely day, the sun was shining (most of the time) and everyone was friendly and patient. Thank you to our fabulous judge Pippa and Zoe our amazing scribe, who set up fair and interesting searches and worked hard to let everyone go home by lunchtime. It was lovely to see lots of different breeds doing some really great sniffing. Mega contratulations to Tracy and Toby who just went to win first place on their first trial!
