Water Tests - Sections A to D

09th September 2023
St. Peter, Jersey, Channel Islands
Hosted by Jersey Big Dog Club

We tested a total of 28 teams on the Saturday and Sunday, covering Sections A to D. We were lucky with the weather over the two days and the lake was calmer than we have had for a few years.

We started with Section D on both days then on to C, A and B finally with some very good team work and lovely passes. It was a good to see young dogs doing well on their first tests and going on to pass. The JBDC is only a small club so we really appreciate all the support we are given by those coming over from the UK to enter tests, judge, steward and generally help make the event a success. Thanks to Geoff Burns and David Taylor coming over specifically to judge. Thank you, Anita and Trina for arranging the judges' lunches and hot drinks etc. and Caroline & Chris for all your help setting up etc..

Thank you for inviting us to judge at Jersey today. A glorious day weather wise. Only one entry for Section D, who sadly didn't make it today. However, we feel that with a little more work, he will definitely pass this level in the future.
