Weather was fine but a little windy. We had six entries - all had good passes to a high standard, they should have no problem attempting the next level.
Thanks to the JBDC, the stewards and Test Manager, Steve and my fellow judge, Sara.

Entrants 1: Passes: 0

Thank you SNC for inviting us to judge Level 1 at this venue, to JBDC for hosting the test and for their hospitality.
We only had one dog entered today, who wasn't really interested in working today despite her handlers best efforts.

A very blustery but dry day saw us with four entries for Level 2 today. It was the first time of using the new regulations so we were all first timers today.
We had two successful passes, which were both completed beautifully, and two fails one on the down stay and one on the control section.
Thank you SNC and JBDC.

Entrants 1: Passes: 0

Weather was fine but a little windy. We had one entry today, a little more work required, but the team should be able to attain a pass at this level in the future.
Thanks to JBDC, stewards and the SNC for asking us to judge.

Two entries today, with just the one pass under the new regulations.
Both teams completed the control section, out-of-sight down stay and maneuvering sections with one dog losing minimal points, sadly this dog got up on the out-of-sight down stay on the haul and so was an automatic fail. Teams worked well together over a testing haul.
Thank you to Steve and Team JBDC for organizing a great day, even the sun came out for us today.
