Great to be back at this lovely venue again, with a large grass area for the control sections and direct access into the Forest of Dean for all the various levels of haul. Apart from a couple of afternoon downpours the weather was kind to us.
Lovely to see entries at all Levels and congratulations to everyone who passed. A lovely friendly atmosphere including an evening meal – glad everyone enjoyed themselves.

Today we had good weather for a draught test.
Three entries, sadly one dog was over enthusiastic on the recall and left the ring. The remaining two dogs went on to complete a nice manoeuvring section and took the haul through the forest in their stride.
Thank you to SNC for inviting us to judge today and to Sara for test managing.

Thank you SNC for inviting us to judge at this lovely venue and to WNAG for hosting the test.
There were 5 dogs who passed the control section with ease, but unfortunately three failed the down stay. The other two dogs went on to do nice hauls and passed.

Following a week of heavy rain, the Level 3 draught test took place on a beautiful autumn morning at this beautiful venue in the Forest of Dean.
There was one entrant today ands this young dog and her handler achieved an excellent pass. All four sections of the test were of a very high standard, the challenging haul obstacles and distractions proved to be no problem.
This excellent draught venue offers some excellent haul routes over varied terrain.
Our thanks to Sara Davies for test managing and the SNC and WNAG for their hospitality. Also thanks to our call steward.

We judged one dog at this level today, it was very wet underfoot, unfortunately the team didn't pass.
Thank you to SNC for asking us to judge and to WNAG for looking after us.
