Trial Manager and Judges Reports

Emma asked me judge levels 3 and 4 and what a lovely day it was. Handlers and dogs very happy and all seemed to be enjoying themselves.
Level 3. Lovely handling and very nice Scentwork all round. With everyone Qualifying.
There were 8 competitors and Emma had been busy and most areas were set up waiting for us to put the scents in.
Started with vehicles. 7 teams found both scents, so off to a good start.
Tables and chairs didn’t cause any problems to anyone.
Bags and boxes threw a couple of teams and just one in the exterior.

The trial was won by Elizabeth and Bodie who also attained their excellent. Well done

Level 4. 13 teams here, very impressive handling and scenting by all of them. Again all qualifying.
Exterior, tables and chairs and bags and boxes causing hardly any problems.
The wall certainly sorted out who had worked a wall before and the teams that hadn’t. Well done everyone had a really good try at it. 8 teams succeeded in finding both articles, and the other 5 teams finding 1. The dogs were so good often finding where the scent was coming from and working down/up until the were on the exact spot.
The trial was won by Lynda and Flo who also attained their excellent. Well done
Karen and Jet also attained their excellent. Well done
Many thanks to Emma for well organised and very friendly trials. Great fun, loads of goodies to eat and drink and my wonderful fruit basket plus other things.
Also Thankyou to Lisa and Margaret very efficient and helpful scribes.
