Draught Tests - Levels: Beginners, 1, 2 & 3

27 October 2018
Parc Bryn Bach, Tredegar, Gwent

The day was bitterly cold and at one point we had snow!

We had 11 entries present on the day with only one failing on the back-up.

Many thanks to the judges who came and to all those who helped with stewarding, especially Sarah who loves to 'call', go on the longest haul and spend time with the newfies.

Quite a chilly day with a hint of snow and temperatures around 3° Centigrade.
We had two entries with experienced handlers and dogs who performed really well. One single dog and a Brace. Very clear passes in the control section with both teams emerging clear in the control and haul sections.
Many thanks to the Test Manager and the team of helpers at Bryn Bach for a well organized and enjoyable test.

We judged four dogs today and all passed. We did two hauls to work around entries, they all showed excellent teamwork, so deserved their passes.
Many thanks to SNC for inviting us to judge.

A fine day in Wales, a little chilly, but no rain and just the odd snow shower!
We had five entries, all teams did a good control section, but one did not do a back-up. The remaining four all completed the 'down stay' and did a very good haul.
Thanks to the SNC for asking us to judge, Test Manager, Jane and all the stewards.
