Lochiness Han Solo finally achieved his second his second ticket. This time at the cold game test (B-test). It was not an easy test which was made apparent as all of the eight dogs, that “survived” the final tast, was awarded. Now the pressure is on yours truly to obtain the final ticket for the title.
This same day – April 15th – one of our young bitches Partridge Frozen Fantazy (DKBRCH DKWTCH Thirsgaards I Caught Fire – IRFTCH Shimnavale Excalibur) was awarded an excellent in the beginners class.
The 5th of June we took four dogs to working test in the North of Jutland Partridge Frozen Fantazy (Tazy), was finally getting her obedience test, Lochiness Han Solo, Fernshot Cricket og Lochiness Clotworthy Dobbin were all entered in the working test. The first two in open class and Dobbin in novice.Two awards and placed in the top four
The test was apparently somewhat harder than intended, but the posts were straightforward and a fun to do. Tazy passed her obedience test and was best dog in her category. She recieved her very first prize ever. Solo needed a bit more luck this time and missed a dummy on his very last post. But Dobbin passed and was placed as no 4 out of 20. Only four dogs passed. Cricket also did really well and was placed as runner-up in a class of 30 entered dogs. Only five dogs passed open class.
At the cold game test top class (B-proeve) in Karup, region Midtjylland on Maj 27 Solo achieved a COM – certificate of merrit. It was a very satisfactory result from a most challenging test. Jon Andersen and team had organized a really creative and exciting layout, and it was a pleasure to attend. Only 10 dogs out of the 35 passed the two preliminary tests and of the seven in the finals only 5 completed, which tells you something about the level of competition. One can not be anything but satisfied with a dog who now for the third time has made it to the finals earning a place among the top three or an award.
Cold game test on April 22 with elite class as mocktrial
Lochiness Clotworthy Dobbin (photo coming soon) achieved only 21 months old his second excellent and is therefore – in spite of his young age – already qualified for elite class. The next target is an excellent in open field trial, but that will have to wait to the shooting season. This summer will therefor be concentrating on training for that and participation in working tests to build experience.We expect a great deal from Dobbin. He is a relative large dog with much energy and capacity
Lochiness Han Solo was placed as number 3 out of a really strong group of 29 in the elite class mocktrial.
A mocktrial is a cold game test which is designed to resemble a real field trial as much as possible. It is a really exciting and entertaining type of test and a really useful preparation for the field trial season.
Thank you all for a super day!
Our 21 months old labrador dog by IRFTCH Shimnavale Excalibur and Lochiness Foxberry had his debut in open class B (cold game test) on April 9th. He passed and was awarded an excellent. This means that his next excellent in the class will qualify him for the elite class. He has come a long way fast!
