I was surprised by the quality of the handling. There is lots of raw talent here but it needs to be given some direction. Both younger handlers started their patterns from the wrong place as did one of the adults. When starting a pattern always begin in front of the judge.
6 – 11 yrs
Leah Jackson 11yrs handling a Peke.
2nd Daisy Hassell, 7yrs, handling a Cocker
Both handlers show lots of promise but need some structured training to take them to the next level. Both did well on the table stacking their dogs but need to work on lines and patterns.
Always start in front of the judge and remember that a triangle has 3 straight lines. An up and down should be in a line away from the judge and then back with the dog on the same line.
12 – 16 yrs
The common theme here was curved lines on the up & down. Make them straight and bring the dog back on the same line to stand out in a class
1st Chloe Beecham.
Handling a Golden Retriever. This young lady was the only one to do
everything correctly. Stacked the dog well and showed the teeth clearly
without fuss. Best triangle and up / down in the class. Talked to the
dog in a gently sympathetic manner that was right for this dog. Well
2nd Paige Edens. Handling a pointer. Now I had seen this young lady show in the breed so I knew she could show a dog. What I was looking for here was a little more precision. Beautifully stacked and teeth shown well. Did a good triangle but the up / down was wayward. Curved going away although straighter coming back.
3rd Meaylee Lewis Handling a Flat Coated retriever. Not the easiest breed to handle. Stood well and lovely teeth. Very much like 2nd place her triangle was good but her up / down was curved.
Res Tegan Willoughby
Maria Clark. Headed up the best handling class of the day. Handling
a Pug, definitely not an easy breed to handle especially in the handling
ring. That said, this young lady demonstrated kind, sympathetic
handling that got the best out of her dog both on the table & while
producing neat patternwork at the correct pace.
2nd Chloe Jefferies. Had a stubborn SCWT but she didn’t let it get to her. Again, good tablework and on the move used her voice to encourage the dog. Good patterns. Just ensure that on the third leg of the triangle the dog goes back to the judge.
3rd Courtney Templeman. This brave young lady brought in a puppy and impressed. Won her place for her tenacity and sympathetic
Becky Collier. Handled her Border Collie beautifully. Scored highly
in all areas. Excellent table work with lovely clear teeth A good
triangle, just watch your line on the 3rd leg, and two good
up / downs.
2nd Mrs T Mitchell-Cormack handling an Irish Setter. Stacked her dog well and good teeth. Good triangle but your first up / down was curved and off line. Try using a focal point to move your dog towards to give you a nice straight line. The 2nd one was much better.
3rd Laura Ratcliff handling her Cocker Spaniel. Table work and teeth could be tidier. As with the young juniors you started your triangle from the table rather than in front of the judge so as a judge I would not have been able to assess the dogs movement had this been a breed ring. You corrected slightly for your up / down but this too was rather off line .
