We had a glorious day for our Level 1 trial held just outside Truro in Cornwall. The sun was shining but we had plenty of shade with many large trees surrounding the car park. The first group of 15 this morning worked really well and we had quite a few Clean Sweeps and also were able to hand out three Excellent rosettes. In the afternoon group we also had several Clean Sweeps and another three people gaining their Excellent Titles!
Our thanks go to our encouraging Judges, Denise Pile and Hannah Crook, who set appropriate hides and offered helpful feedback. We are also lucky to have a group of dedicated helpers and are very grateful to them for giving up their time to help run our Trials.
We are now looking forward to seeing lots of competitors at our August Trial when we will be running Level 1 and 2.
Lovely day judging, we were lucky with the weather as it had been very hot and a few places were battling with heat. Our venue has nice shade and a cool area to walk dogs.
I judged the outdoor area in the morning, setting the exterior article within a deflated rolled airbed. When the white dog ran, I noticed that it moved a lot and nose marks were very obvious! I was unable to wipe them off! Reset the search so the article was a wicker crate which worked very well.
The vehicle search went well, the article set on the RH front wheel as I was facing the rear of the vehicle. Again – good results, only a couple of issues, with two dogs moving out of the search area and urinating on the grass, the area was washed but obviously still created a distraction for the rest of the teams (who were warned about what had happened).
All in all, good handing from everyone and some very promising teams.
It was nice to be able to hand out Excellent rosettes to Kate and Elsa (who is also a qualified assistance dog) and Pip and Molly.
Judged the Interior area in the afternoon, Tables and chairs were good with a couple of dogs getting confused, but most with good success. Lovely to see some brand new partnerships having a go.
The boxes/bags were a bit of an equalizer, I set the article in a bag in the centre of the search area. The biggest issue faced for the dogs was the handler blocking the area, walking through the centre rather than working from the edge.
At the end of the day we still ended up several partnerships on a perfect score. Lovely to see such a mix.
Thanks to everyone who supported the trial and helped to make it such a smooth day.
Also massive thanks to Jackie as the trial manager who sorted all the paperwork to ensure everything went very smoothly.
