Trial Manager and Judges Reports

Scentwork UK Trial Riddings Sunday 26 February 2023

Level 1 Boxes and Luggage, and Exterior Items

An enjoyable day at a well run trial by Linda and Kevin. Thank you so much for the invitation to judge two of the sections of your Level I trial. Also thank you Tracey Eaton for scribing today. Although you found it very cold sitting outside at the table during the exterior search it did stay dry.

Well done to all the competitors. Congratulations to those of you who passed and to those who were not successful today I’m sure success awaits you next time.

Two competitors got all four finds and full handler marks, only time making the difference.

Although nobody ran out of time Boxes and Luggage saw 5 false alerts and the Exterior Items 1 false alert.

I was very impressed with the standard of the handling which was excellent, especially those that chose to work with a line. A line can prove a bit tricky but you all handled the lie magnificently.

Pauline James
