Working Trials KUSA Nationals 2014

 

Cape Town hosted the KUSA Nationals and KUSA Championship Working Trials shows this past weekend. Nationals has only Tracker Dog III and Police Dog on offer. In order to compete in the Nationals, the dogs need to have qualified in TDIII previously.

Judge Vincent Fry from Gauteng officiated and was very impressed with the level of competition, particularly the Control section. Best track of the day went to Bronte and young Rummy got full marks for her redirected send-away. Vincent said it is a long time since he has been able to award full marks for this exercise.

The dog that came out tops on the day was Quando, achieving an Excellent Qualification and earning the title of KUSA National Tracker Dog Champion 2014. This boy is always a pleasure to watch. He really loves to work and this was a great performance. Congratulations to all who took part on the exceptional level of competition.

I couldn’t attend the Championship Show on Sunday so unfortunately don’t have any photo’s but did make sure to get the results telephonically. Again, an excellent qualification in TDIII to Quando making Angie a very, very happy handler indeed and a qualification in TDII for Odie which I’m sure Linda was over the moon about.

Our track layers worked particularly hard arriving at the field by 7am on both Saturday and Sunday so thanks to Arthur and Richard as well as Sarah who laid the TDII tracks on Sunday.

Our next show will be the Cape Handlers Show with Working Trials (Classic) on Saturday 5th July and Tracking Trials on Sunday 6th July.
