Trial Manager and Judges Reports

Thank you to Heather Donnelly for asking me to judge L2 and to my very able scribe Yaz Whitehall.
There were 8 teams on the day. All the dogs worked enthusiastically with some very nice handling from the handlers.
The first search was Tables and Chairs with all the dogs finding both scents. Rona and Merddyn were last to work but found both scents in a very fast time of 37s, followed by Kelly and Rodney in 57s and Jane and Rafiki in 59s.
Next up was the vehicle and wall search with only half the competitors getting both scents and the other half getting one scent. Liz and Groot, the eventual red rosette winners, finding both scents in 58s, Julie and Maya in 64s and Martina and Timba in 84s
The Boxes and Luggage followed, again with both articles being found by all dogs. Rona and Merddyn in a time of 27s, Jane and Rafiki in a time of 28s and Courtney and Misty in a time of 30s
Last was the Exterior search in which 6 teams got both scents. Liz and Groot in a time of 28s, Louise and Nell in 34s and Rona and Merddyn in 35s
All the teams were of a very high standard and congratulations to all the teams and hope they enjoyed their day. Very well done to our eventual winners Liz and Groot 1st, Martina and Timba 2nd, Julie and May 3rd, Rona and Merddyn 4th very well deserved
