Water Tests - Sections A to D

10th September 2023
St. Peter, Jersey, Channel Islands
Hosted by Friends of Jersey Big Dog Club

We tested a total of 28 teams on the Saturday and Sunday, covering Sections A to D. We were lucky with the weather over the two days and the lake was calmer than we have had for a few years.

We started with Section D on both days then on to C, A and B finally with some very good team work and lovely passes. It was a good to see young dogs doing well on their first tests and going on to pass. The JBDC is only a small club so we really appreciate all the support we are given by those coming over from the UK to enter tests, judge, steward and generally help make the event a success. Thanks to Geoff Burns and David Taylor coming over specifically to judge. Thank you, Anita and Trina for arranging the judges' lunches and hot drinks etc. and Caroline & Chris for all your help setting up etc..

Thanks to SNC for inviting us to judge. We had four entries, two of which were strong passes in challenging conditions. The two dogs that failed need a little more work and we are sure they will pass soon.
