1st. Eneja Smith This girl knows her stuff. She worked her charge with sympathy, moving at a pace applicable to the breed and using the ring in a correct manner to instruction. Nothing flustered and no mistake, when finishing her movement brought her dog to the judge at just the right place and angle.
2nd. perhaps not as polished as winner, but this boy handled his Rottweiler efficiently, making sure he had control at all times. Even in this ring (which was not the largest for this breed) he moved the dog at a pace to show the dogs’ ability, yet never encroaching on any other exhibit. The handler had an air of calm professionalism; I feel he has a good future as a handler.
1st. Trinity Robb This was not an easy class as all performed tasks, with knowledge of the requirements. This girl and her dog presented a talented picture at all times. Nothing overdone or overstated, just calmly working together in harmony .In a small ring for a big dog, the handler exuded his virtues to advantage. Best overall.
2nd. Had a young ‘teenage’ Irish Setter that did not always want to comply. However this handler did not become flustered or harsh, just quietly took time to settle him with efficiency and present the required result. Well done.
