Heywood & Radcliffe 6.1.19

Junior Handling 6 – 11 Years (8, 5A) 1 - Lola Lovric (10) – Lovely sympathetic handler who showed her dog off well, kept good placement around the ring and watched where I was standing, competently showed her dogs teeth and moved around the ring confidently. She remained calm even when her dog was not making her job very easy. 2 – Madison Kirkman (11) Another nice young handler who just needs some more experience in the ring, she kept her lines straight and turns tight on movement, just needs to watch what side she is showing her dog on, to ensure she does not get between dog and judge. 3 – Rylan Hunt (6)

Junior Handling 12-16 Years (3,1A) What a pair of handlers! They were both Fantastic, was splitting hairs to choose between them. 1 – Willow Johnson (13) - Excellent rapport with her dog, she shadowed well, keeping her movements precise and calm, but didn’t try to anticipate and move too early. Very straight lines and tight corners on movements, always checking back to see where I was positioned. She wasn’t tempted to rush her smaller dog around the ring to catch up to the handler in front and spoke to her dog reassuringly which was lovely to see. – Best Overall Handler 2 - Tamsin Blyton (15) - Much of the comments of 1 apply to this young lady also. Tamsin didn’t get flustered when her dog moved out of position, she reassured her dog and calmly readjusted. She kept nice straight lines and tight corners through the movements. Just felt at moments she went a touch too fast for her dog’s stride, which resulted in a slightly rushed appearance.
