Show Report Show: Nederlands Kampioenschap Obedience te 's-Gravenpolder Date: 7/11/2015 Class: Pre-Beginners & Class A Judge: Margo Lewis
Thank you to everyone for your help in making my judging so easy and for making me so welcome. Thanks to my Steward Hans and my scoreboard marker Ivonne. My first class was Pre Beginners and the heelwork in this class was very good. Unfortunately stays were very costly.
4 entered 3 ran.
1st Anita Gijzen v with Old Cross Guns Stirs The Soul. Staffordshire Bull Terrier.
Lovely partnership. Set exercises were very good and heelwork showed a lot of promise. A bit of work needed in stays but overall very well done. This team deservingly won my most promising dog.
2nd Brigitta Oevelin v with Tougher Than the Rest of Free Spirit. Australian Shepherd.
Good all round performance again a bit of work needed in stays and this team will soon be out of pre beginners.
3rd Brigitta Oevelin v with Red Red Red of free Spirit. Australian Shepherd.
I liked this dog but unfortunately the down stay proved costly.
A lot of dogs showed good promise in this class. Some lovely heelwork and beautiful A recalls but Stays were an issue for a number of teams. Thanks again to Hans and Ivonne.
1st Tamara Oomen with Silverwood’s Pride Whoopi BC
Lovely heelwork and beautiful set exercises. Despite loosing 2 in scent this dog still took first place. What a lovely team.
2nd Natalie Knaack-Enkelmann with Independent Spirit’s Kentucky Mechelse Herder.
Again a lovely team. Heelwork was very tidy just bits and pieces. Nice A recall and retrieve. Lost 1 in scent which was costly. I was very impressed with this team and they won my most promising dog.
3rd Joop Gijs with Meg BC
Stunning A recall and great retrieve. Once heelwork has been tightened up this team will fly. Good scent.
4th Ton Santen V Clan of Stork’s Jaguar Bearded Collie
Lovely round. Nice set exercises scent cost you a higher place.
5th Amanda Laschak with Chambless Rose A’ Dark Sweet Snickers BC
A really nice round with a great A re-call. Marks lost in stays and scent cost you both. Lots of potential for the future.
6th Sandra Pierson with Gowah of Wendevick HomeBC
Good set exercises. Heelwork needs tightened up a bit but once this is done there will be no stooping you.
