Club President, Jason Lau, reports that last Saturday (30th September) was another successful Trial for the Club and many competitors. The weather was a little windy, which troubled some dogs, but it was a sunny day and not too warm.
And as the photos and results show, it was another good day for Border Collies!
The President’s Trophy for the highest scoring dog (male or female) was won by Penny Dalzell & Zypperty (NAHROF ZYPPERTY CDX FS.N HTM.I RN) -- there was a tie for the highest scores and Penny and Zypperty won in an exciting run off against another competitor.
The Founder’s Trophy for highest scoring Club Member on the day was won by Thierry Bennani and Dash (TARYJA DASH O MIDNIGHT CCD). Regular Sunday attendees at the Club may recall Thierry and Dash recently earned their CCD Title and Club Badge and backing up so soon with a pass in the CD ring is an excellent result!
Once again, a big THANKS to our Chief Steward, Heather Martyn, and Trial Secretary, Julie Brandon, and to our Judges and Stewards, the Canine Council Representative, Andrea Munn, and to our Committee and helpers without whom the Trial would not take place.
And for those curious to learn more about Obedience Trialing or inspired to take part (perhaps even at the Club's Trial next year?), DOGS NSW have an excellent overview of the competition rings and rules on their website.
