Draught Tests - All Levels: Beginners to Level 4

05 October 2021
St. Martin, Jersey, Channel Islands
Hosted by Jersey Big Dog Club

We tested a 12 dogs at all levels at the Activity Centre in St Martin. All the control and maneuvering sections were held at the site as were the lower level hauls. Level 3 haul was carried out at Val De La Mare Reservoir, for the first time, which is at the west of the island. There were a host of different obstacles and surfaces for the teams, but unfortunately no passes.

We had many passes in the lower levels and several teams needing a little more work that I have no doubt will be passing soon.

A big thank you to all those who came over to support our event, the judges, stewards and helpers who make these tests possible. A special thank you to Anita for keeping the judges fed and watered.

Steve Pallot, Test Manager

We were presented with three super teams. Lovely to see a veteran who was happy to be out and two very promising young teams. Many thanks to JBDC & SNC for their kind invitation to judge and their hospitality. Can we order good weather for next year please?

Thank you very much for inviting us to judge Level 2 at Jersey, this was Jeff Burridge's novice judging appointment at this level. There were two Teams, but unfortunately one failed the Group Down Stay, otherwise they were a pleasure to watch.
Thank you JBDC, Test Manager and stewards.

Level 3

Entrants 3: Passes: 0

We had a promising start to Level 3 with two dogs going through to the haul, unfortunately both dogs failed on different tasks. It was nice to see both teams working well together.
Our thanks to JBDC for their hospitality and to SNC for inviting us to judge today.

Only one entry for Level 4 today, good control section although a little stiff. Decided to withdraw from the haul after an excellent maneuvering section. A shame as we know this dog is more than capable of working at this level.
Thank you to JBDC & SNC for an enjoyable day.
