ND/NH, Puppy, Special Puppy and Young Handler Test Report by Sophie Mills
This was our last working test of the year and it was great to be able to offer the Young Handler class again this year, even though there were only two entries! It would be great to get more entries next year.
It was also Sarah’s last test as Working Test Secretary, many thanks for all her hard work and wishing Chloe Upton all the best in the role next year.
Evie asked if she could run Audrey again this year, of course I said ‘Yes!’ Boris was not available for Arthur to run this year and I know Evie was a bit nervous about competing without her big brother to help her.
I tried to keep out of Evie and Audrey’s way as I wanted Audrey to focus on Evie, so when she was at the test I was stewarding for, I had to hide, temporarily abandoning my stewarding duties.
‘Auntie’ Linda (Saunders) provided some sweets to keep the young handlers going as they went round.
Evie enjoyed her day and enjoyed having Chloe’s daughter as competition, rather than just her brother Arthur.
I was very proud of both Evie and Audrey for doing so well!!
