Northside Dog Training Club
Judge: PAULA HARVEY
I would like to thank Northside for the invitation to judge. Also Miriam for being Trials Manager, providing me with BB and for the birds eye view of Dublin at 8.30 in the morning!
A big thank you to Marjorie who did all the catering for the trial and also cooked a wonderful Meal on Sunday evening.
I judged the three tracking stakes. All tracking was on stubble. The weather conditions were Saturday, sunny with showers and windy. Sunday was wet and windy. Saturday appeared to be the better tracking day as Sunday produced no nose work qualifiers.
