Handling Classes

Thank you to the Officers and Committee for their kind invitation to judge the handling classes at this show. Although a numerically small entry the handling was of a very high quality.

Junior Handling - 6-11 years

1st Tegan Nicholson. Tegan handled her Miniature Wire-Haired Dachshund very quietly and unobtrusively. She presented her correctly both on the floor and on the table. Whilst concentrating totally on her dog she was also careful to watch where I was in the ring. She could have given a little more encouragement when moving but she moved at the correct pace for the dog and was very smartly turned out.

Junior Handling - 12-16 years

1st Kaitlyn Nicholson. Kaitlyn handled her SCWT very professionally. At all times she ensured that she was set up correctly whether I was viewing head on or in profile. She moved her on a good stride without rushing and on a loose lead yet maintaining control. At all times quietly encouraging her dog. Very smartly turned out and yet not detracting from the dog in any way. Best Junior

Adult Handling - 25+ years

1st Becky Collier. Handling a Cocker Spaniel. Presented very well and correctly stacked both on the floor and on the table. Moved at the correct pace and kept note of where I was standing. A very polished performance throughout.

2nd Barbara Wiles - handling an English Toy Terrier. Again very well handled - not quite as adept at stacking as the winner but put up a good performance throughout.
