Woodstock Obedience Trial

The results from the Woodstock obedience match, Novice A division:
  • 196 High in Class, High in Trial
Woodstock HIT

William Neville was the judge in the trial. When Mr. Neville was handing out the awards he turn to me and said "Thank god you came to my trial. You have restored my faith in dog training". He then proceeded to give me a hug. The words and the gesture were totally unexpected and very much took me by surprise.

The outcome of the last four days have left me overwhelmed. I just wasn't prepared for this much success. It has been a surreal experience. As far as I know nobody at Companion Dog Training (where I have trained since Riot was a puppy) knows the results. On Tuesday, at my next class, I will tell them.

Riot entered in CD trials

Registered in two all-breed obedience trials as a Novice "A" competitor. Blyth is an indoor trial put on by the Bluewater Kennel Club at the Bylth Community Centre on July 10, 11 & 12. Woodstock, an outdoor show, is held by the Oxford County Kennel Club on July 13, 14 & 15. In Blyth I am entered in 4 trials. In case we failed to qualified in Blyth I decided to enter 1 trial in Woodstock.
