Working Test Results, Goonhaven 10th/11th September 2016 - Judge: Val Corgan (helped by
Gilly Curtis and Jan Lemon)

Over the two days we took 6 Primary tests 3 Junior tests and 3 Intermediate tests.

The Saturday concentrated on preparation training, followed by the few tests that we had time for. There were no Good Citizen tests running this year, so we were able to help everyone with work towards their Working Tests and pick up on individual problems. There were two 'stars for the weekend' and both managed to get their Intermediate. One was Joy Wooliscroft and Millie and the other was Carole Snuggs with Darcey. It was such pleasure to judge these two, especially since Joy was judging our Fun show at the same event and I know just how hard Carole has worked with Darcey from personal experience. Special congratulations to you both.

Working Tests at Glanmor Fun Day and Tea Party, 17th July 2016 - Judge: Val Corgan

There were 4 tests taken, 2 tries at Intermediate, who were not successful and 2 entrants at Primary Level, both of whom passed.

Working Tests

If you have ever wanted to have a go at obedience but have been put off as it looks a bit serious for you and your Beardie, well think again.

I went to the Working Tests event on June 11th organised by Val Corgan and we all had such a wonderful day. It was so much fun and everyone was so supportive and friendly and it was great that you were able to spend time bonding with your dog whilst attempting the various exercises such as stay, recall, retrieve, and heelwork. It made no difference that there were dogs at various levels, all were catered for, the exercises getting harder as you progress to such things as jumping and searching which was lovely to see (full details are on the Test Details page).

Val, who was ably supported by Judith and Gilly for the testing and Lyndsey for her training, a big thank you to you all for your effort and welcome. The whole day was held in a great location on Lyndsey's place in Somerset, suitably supported by cups of tea and homemade cakes and soup - lovely.

For those who know my dog, Neville, he is nicknamed 'Neville the devil' due to his impish nature and low concentration level, so I did not hold out much hope of success. But we passed the preliminary and we even got complimented on our heelwork - couldn't stop smiling! Neville knew what to do all along - it was me that didn't!

Will we be going again? - you bet. We are going to practise the tips for the retrieve so we can take the next level hopefully at the Goonhavern event. I would really recommend you to all give it a go, especially if you have your own 'Neville'. You'll have a great time with great people and you will discover your Beardie's hidden talents!
