Trial Manager and Judges Reports

Level 1 judges report.
The long awaited postponed trial finally went ahead. Beautiful day with little breeze.
Some super teams on this level 1, with a high standard of searches. A few new to scentwork dogs as well which was wonderful to see.
The vehicle search was super quick as we had done an early find, which took a few people by surprise. Good lesson in trusting your dog. The external items caught a few people out. The 3 possible items. People must let the dog search the other items too. But it’s a learning curve. Some super quick searches inside too. All in all a great level 1.
Level 5.
Smaller area for the first set of hides. This was a nice fun search for them with 1 challenging find, which most got.
The second internal area was bigger, and we used the perimeter for a few of the hides, a few of the competitors totally missed the huge wall. But again some great searches.
External. Well we started this with a mouse eating cat. So once becky had moved thus small distraction away we got going. Nice easy search to finish a great day.
Well done to everyone. All qualified today.
