Working Test Report, West of England and South Wales Branch 'Cornwall Weekend'
at Goonhavern, Cornwall - 6th/7th September 2014


It was with great pleasure that I was able to judge the Bearded Collie Working Tests at Goonhavern this year and my very sincere thanks go to Judith Brydian and Elizabeth Kershaw who helped to judge and steward and to Jan Lemon at the desk who kept us all in order. The weather was kind to us the whole weekend and we had the use of a perfect adjacent field for scent work, thanks to Simon King who owns this land.

There were 21 tests taken over the two days, some were retakes, and we had nine passes in total.

At Primary Level, congratulations go to Maria Cox with Bo, Barbara Hurry with Lucy and Kathy McCalister with Shimmi

At Junior Level, passes were Sandy Simpson with Angus and Elizabeth Kershaw with Dolly

At intermediate Level, congratulations go to Sandy Simpson with Ollie and Maureen Sale with Bobby

And finally, many congratulations to two members whose dogs were successful at Senior Level - Penelope Roques and Toolie and Maureen Sale with Roxy.

At both Junior and Intermediate level, some dogs were having trouble with the retrieve but also with the jump. It is a fine line between making training so much fun that the dog wants to do it and controlling that enthusiasm to bring about the desired result. I do think though that it's important to keep one special toy for training with and not allowing the dog free range with every toy. Better luck next time to anyone who didn't pass. Just keep on with some of the beautiful rapport that was evident between handler and dog.
