Results - South West Working Test

South West FCRS Working Tests held on 14th April 2019 at Spreyton Estate by kind permission of Viv Bennett 
Judges Mary-Jane Opie (B3040), Zoe Townsend (NP) and Beth Payne(NP)
Thank you to Roger Skinner for their sponsorship

A fantastic entry for puppy, ND/NH, Novice and Open meant a long day for all! The judges were exceptional in encouraging the new handlers, feedback I have received from the Novice handlers has reflected that opinion. Considering in 2015 I only had 19 entries, only just enough Novice entries to run the event 10, no Open class and no ND/NH, this year of 45 dogs was fantastic. It is the first year I have run a ND/NH class. Of course, there is a downside to the numbers, it takes a long time. My apologies for not starting on time, explaining my slight change to the tests from 2 weeks ago proved more time consuming than anticipated! If the interest continues, I will have to consider putting on fewer tests per category.
