Trial Manager and Judges Reports

Judges report by Keith Clowes.
Level 6 competition at Finmere on the 10th July 2022.

Heather Donnelly trial manager kindly asked me to judge the level 6 trial.

For this trial I judged all 3 searches. There was some really excellent handling throughout the searches, although a few had problems with the heat.
Interior search. I put 5 scents around the room, 2 cloves, 2 gun & 1 truffle. The only scent that caused real problems was one that I had put in the patio door frame, although 3 did find it.
In the exterior search I used 3 scents, 1 cloves, 1 gun & 1 truffle. The weather for this search was getting truly hot and some of the dogs really began to feel the heat. This made it more difficult but they all but 1 found the 3 scents.
For the second interior search, I put out 4 scents, 1 cloves, 1 gun & 2 truffle. The handlers had to work hard and really needed to plan their search in a systematic way to complete in the 3 minutes allocated.
I would like to congratulate the following four who were placed:

1st Hazell Williamson with Cedar
2nd Vanessa Bonner with Lola

3rd Paula Davies with Bonnie Jazz
4th Lynda Stangle with Magic

Also congratulate those that qualified

I would also like to congratulate all the others that took part for being such a fantastic bunch. I would also like to thank all those who helped and in particular Yaz Whitehall my fantastic scribe.
