Massive well done to both handlers both worked hard.
6-11 years - Samuel Green. He worked very hard with a difficult dog who didn't want to co-operate. Good showing of teeth and good shadowing when judge moved around the dog, however just needs to watch corners as they need to be a little sharper. When moving you need to keep an eye on the judge and watch their position, but well done.
12-16 years - Nikki Reeve. A calm attentive handler. Excellent straight lines and patterns and watched the judges position throughout ensuring the dog was correctly positioned before moving off. Best Junior Handler
