Water Tests - All Sections (A to E)

10 & 11 August 2019
Bryn Bach, Tredegar, Gwent.

After a lot of deliberation, due to the weather conditions, it was decided to continue with the tests.

The forecast was for horrendous weather all over the weekend, so we were quiet in numbers. There were 26 entries over the two days, with 11 passes. One was a first attempt at E ... congratulations and also two B passes after umpteen attempts - special congratulations to both handlers. Well done to all the other passes.

Thank you to all those who came and thank you for all the help to run this test weekend.

Jane King, Test Manager

What lovely weather for a water test!!! We had five entries today and four lovely passes, unfortunately the one that didn't make it just wasn't interested today.
Good to see some dogs and handlers new to water tests enjoying the event, hope to see them progress in this discipline.
Thank you Jane & Team WNAG for a great test & all the hospitality.
What a lovely start to my Section A judging - so nice to see all the dogs enjoying themselves - Sara.

We had five dogs entered with only one very good pass, the other four were very close and will certainly achieve this level in the future.
Conditions were very testing, heavy rains and high winds but all dogs coped with this very well.

Five dogs entered in E today. The weather was not kind at all, quite difficult conditions for all the dogs. Some really nice attempts, but only one made the grade today and it was an excellent pass.
Thank you to WNAG for hosting and thank you everyone for your entries. Lovely to judge for the first time with Sue.

Firstly, thank you to the test manager and helpers, as it seems like it has been unusually wet even for Wales this weekend. Thank you to fellow judge, Ruth, some good decisions made.
We had seven dogs and five passes, one in three superb passes with excellent work between dog and handler. Two dogs and handlers had their first passes at this level, one has taken three years, the other four years very well done you two.
The two that didn't make the grade today were very close, so keep the good work up. Well done all.

Much kinder weather for us today. Five entries, some excellent dogs all working well with some very close to a pass. Unfortunately no passes, but they all had a nice swim.
The standards were extremely high, well done everyone. Nice to judge with Pete Lewin.
