West of England Border Collie Club 7/4/18 Pre-Beginners Ring Steward – Graham Claxton

 Thank you to Margaret and the committee for the invitation to judge at this lovely limited show. Thanks also to Gail and her merry band of helpers in the stay ring. Thanks also to Graham for giving up his day to steward for me, it is very much appreciated. Finally, apologies for the lateness of this report.  

1st 52 – Mr J Mason with Corneroak Golden Classic (Cassie) GR This young girl was a delight to watch, she held a lovely position and the handler was in tune with her. Well done on this win and subsequent places at open shows.

2nd 48 - Ms C Lewin with Ambleopia Leo (Leo) BC Again, another lovely well-handled dog. Bad start to both sets of heelwork but soon settled down. Well done on this place.

3rd 85 – Ms S Watson with Magical Mitzimoo (Mitzi) WSD A nice clear recall with this pairing and most of the time the heel work is nice just a little lagging and drifting. Well done on this place.

 4th 82 – Ms A Wall with Come A Long Way Jay (JayJ) Heel on lead was on a par with the winner but JayJ decided to try and hurry his handler up on the heel free. Get this as good as the heel on lead and you will do well. Well done on this place.

5th 30 – Ms L Foster with Amberslade Delavay’s Silver (Carys) AS Heel free was better than the heel on lead as I think you had relaxed by then. The recall was costly today with Carys having a stand and shake. Well done on your place.

 6th 68 – Ms L Russell/Smith with Our Sky Full of Stars (Sky) BC A nice clear recall and stays clinching this place for you today. Need to work on maintain a consistent heel work position with her. Well done today.

Ring Steward – Graham Claxton

Thank you to Margaret and the committee for the invitation to judge at this lovely limited show. Thanks also to Gail and her merry band of helpers in the stay ring. Thanks also to Graham for giving up his day to steward for me, it is very much appreciated. Finally, apologies for the lateness of this report.

1st 58 –Ms L Morris with Silver Merry Maker (Heidi) WS Heel on lead was fantastic with Heidi holding a fabulous position. On her heel free she was still great but went wide on her turns. Round finished with a clear recall and retrieve giving you the top spot today. Well done on your win.

2nd 1 – Ms S Alexander with Tonkory Quick off the Mark (Lottie) BC Very nice heelwork and heel free and heel on lead were practically identical in marks. Very nice handling. Well done on your place.

3rd 61 – Mrs J Norvill with Just Jacko x Heel on lead had lovely attention and attitude. Jump up on the recall was costly but you held it all together to finish off a very nice round. Well done on your place.

4th 77 – Ms D Strachan with Cameley Cloudberry (Jai) WS Jai made it hard for you today as he kept trying to bite you in the heelwork, but you handled it well. Clear recall and retrieve as well today. Well done on your place.

5th 89 – Mrs J Wilkinson with Zatasha White Tip Meg (Meg) WS Another dog with a clear recall and retrieve today. The halt on the heel on lead was a little expensive but otherwise not much wrong with her work today. She had a little freak on the turn nearest the fairground on the heel free but you handled her well to get through it. Well done on this place today.

 6th 14 – Mrs R Crane with Ruby’s Blue Saint (Dragon) X Nice heel on lead with just bits and bobs. Anticipation on the recall was a little costly and losing attention on the turns in heel free. Based on her heel on lead she will do well. Well done on this place today.

Class A  

Thanks for the invitation to judge and for looking after us so well, we had a lovely day. Thanks also to Bobbie for giving up her day and being such a good steward.  

1st B Colledge and Chloe Lost 4 – Barbara and Chloe worked a lovely round, leaving nothing much to mark. I’m sure you’ll have a good year together getting off to such a good start.  

2nd J Bloomfield and Flair – Lost 5 ¼ - Flair worked a really good round, and I can’t see her staying in A long. Well done.  

3rd C King and Whizz – Lost 11 ¼ - Whizz worked well today, just losing points for enjoying himself too much at times! Good to see how much he loves his work.  

4th J Saker and Xante – Lost 13 ¾ - Xante was reluctant to sit today, but otherwise worked a nice positive round. Well done.

 5th Mrs Hawkes and Beau – Lost 15 – Started with a really good recall and some nice heelwork, just had to add a few extra commands in today during exercises which added up.  

6th W Allison - Lost 17 – Just a few extra commands needed throughout the exercises today but showed some really good heelwork.    

Class B  

1st M Siddall and Little Miss Spottletoes – Lost 12 ¼ - A good performance today and didn’t even let another dog running into the ring during the heelwork put her off! Well done.  

2nd B Colledge and Chloe – Lost 15 ¾ - Another good round from Barbara and Chloe, with really accurate heelwork and a lovely scent.  

3rd C King and Whizz – Lost 28 ½ - Whizz had a moment in sendaway today, which was a shame as the rest of the round he did well. Well done.  

4th J Mayo and Izzy – Lost 42 ¾ - Izzy did really well today, and Jackie and Izzy had a fun round together. Just couldn’t quite manage the sit stay today, but finished with a good scent.
