Trial Manager and Judges Reports

sue abbott-dixon

Thank you Jennie for asking us to Judge.
We were doing things slightly different at this trial, as we had 8 people running as a level 6 trial, 2 people running NFC as level 7 practice, and 3 people running NFC as level 5 practice.
We had seen the areas we had to work with before hand, and had come up with some ideas to make it an interesting day. I hope everyone enjoyed it.
We arrived in plenty of time to dress the areas, and while Geof walked everyone round, I set up a little practice area in the car park, so people had an area to work while waiting for their go.
The 1st area was a changing room, shower area and toilets. 5 scents, 6 mins. The Exterior was 2 scents on a large patio area 3 mins, and the 2nd interior had been laid as a conference room, 5 scents, 6 mins.
The 56 chairs in interior 2 had people worried, but actually the dogs worked the room really well, and there was some lovely searching. Naomi and Buddy, and Paul and Jack were both amazing here.
All 4 placings were very well deserved, and it was lovely to watch the partnerships , Duke, you were a Joy !.
I hope that each person that ran NFC found Geofs feedback useful, and will give you confidence when the time comes for a “proper” trial.
**2 white dogs were run blind on each area to get an accurate time allowance**
