Thank you Marianne for inviting us to Judge at Brogborough again. We were looking forward to seeing some familiar faces, and some new. We would like to take a moment here to say Thank you to our scribes, and to say a massive Thank You to Nikki, who spent the day organising the running order, and making sure that everyone knew where they needed to be.
We began they day with the Level 2, and started with the Vehicle search, and the boxes and Luggage,
There were some really lovely searches by Betty, Nellie, Bo, Amber, Kiwi and Elsa. Fyodor, Rosie and Mr Wilson were on top form, and we knew it was going to be a very high standard group, this was going to make our job harder, but many of the dogs were an absolute joy to watch.
Tables and Chairs went smoothly, with some great teamwork showing through. Steigl, Elsa, Beth and Kiwi were handled well here. Mr Wilson and Rosie did well here too.
The Exterior search also went well, proving we really did have some awesome teams here.
Amber dragged Jan to the trolley, Betty left her Mum in no doubt where the 1st scent was, and Bo, Beth and Kiwi, also did lovely searches. Mr Wilson is a wonderful dog to watch, with his methodical searching of all items, Caroline just had to direct him, when needed and watch for his wonderful indication. Also, Fyodor did a fantastic search, there had been a fouling incident just before he entered, and we all held our breath, thinking it may be a distraction for him. Swan needn’t have worried, as brain over-ruled urges, and he did an amazingly quick search.
I want to mention little Nellie here, Helen decided to try Nellie Off Lead for the 1st time, and she did her Mum proud, working beautifully all Day.
So on to the Results, and we knew it was going to be close.
Very well deserved placings to Lu and Bo 4th, Harold and Rosie 3rd, and Swan and Fyodor 2nd, With a Faultless performance from Mr Wilson, and Caroline giving them the 1st place.
A quick bite to eat, and then ready for the Level 1.
This was a big entry, with a couple of people with 2 dogs, and 1 person a on different scent. so we were thankful we had Nikki keeping us organised,
We had a wonderful variety of dogs here from little Minka, recovering from a back injury to Duke a beautiful Assistance dog, and a few reactive, and nervous dogs.
We began with the Vehicle search, and had some lovely searches from Izzie, Fern, both Max s’. Kimi. Duke ,Skye and Soul. Georgie was a joy to watch, as was Alf. Ruff did a great job too, I love his laid back view on life.
Tables and Chairs saw both of Charles’ dogs doing lovely searches, as did Leah, Alf. Izzie and Georgie
Boxes and luggage , there were a couple of early calls here, but the dogs were still handled really well. Hayley held her nerve, and waited for Ruby to be sure, and it was fun to watch Fern switching from box to bag, and then back to the box. so Carole could make the right call. Olive did a really quick search. as did Zoe. Chess and Duke were great, and Mist, Minka, and Alf’s indications made it easy for their Mums to call alert. Izzie did a lovely search. And it was lovely to watch Mattie come in and do a stress free search despite being a nervous dog .
Exterior search, despite it being warm, and nearing the end of the day didn’t cause many problems.Olive, Mesha. Maisie ,Kimi, Teddy, did nice searches.
Sam was working 2 dogs,in this level, and gave them the time and care they needed to do well.
Charles was also working 2 dogs in this level, and also worked both dogs beautifully, a joy to watch them enjoying themselves.
We also had some people who had a dog in each level. Carole worked both dogs with care, and patience, Zoes’ bond with her dogs was clear to see, and both dogs worked really well, and clearly wanted to please.They were great. It was Fantastic to see Jan again, and see how much work she has put in to her dogs, each gaining in confidence and working well. It was also wonderful to see Soul again, a dog who was scared of the world, but with love, and care is turning into a fantastic scent dog, and resulting in him earning a well deserved 4th place.
So, to the top three. 3rd place Alison and Izzy. 2nd Place Heather and Georgie, and 1st Place with an awesome nose Alf and Lorraine.
Well done Everyone. We hope you all enjoyed your day, and we hope to see you all again, as you progress.
