Junior Handling, 6 – 11 years (3, 1 abs).

1.     Miss Grayse Fletcher Merryweather (age 10).  This handler worked constantly to keep her dog’s attention and maintain the dog’s outline while standing.  She moved the dog well at a good pace, working to please the judge.

2.    Miss Lilee Fletcher-Merryweather (age 7).  This young handler coped well with a lively dog.  She was especially good at showing the teeth of the dog on a table which was high for her.  Moved at correct pace, but needs to listen to the judge.

Well done – two good handlers of the future.
