Kath and Denby started training Obedience last year for several reasons and have competed at these shows just four times, gaining three seventh places but at Rugby Dog Training Club they managed to a First Place in Novice under judge Roy Page.
Kath was delighted with Denby's attitude to work in a very busy environment.
1st 98½ pts. Mrs. Kathryn Hardman and her 5 year old Border Collie STILLMOOR EXTRA SPECIAL. I find it difficult to believe that Kath and Denby are still in Novice and can only put it down to the fact that they share themselves between Obedience and HTM . This was a really lovely round in a competitive Novice class where many of the dogs will have no problem progressing through the classes this season. Stylish, attentive and accurate heelwork both on and off the lead. Totally committed recall and retrieve. It gave me much pleasure to judge this team and to award them their first win in Novice. Congratulations on a well deserved win - I shall watch your progress with interest. ¼ HoL; 1¼ HF
