On the 22nd October we held a day of Working Retriever Assessments in the grounds of Castle Howard by very kind permission of the Howard family and Clive Harrison, the gamekeeper there. Both Novice and Intermediate levels were assessed.
Passes in the novice level (judged by Caroline and Chris Hewison) were awarded to
Sue Sinnott with Merlin (Millola Handsome Man)
Al Moore with Rio (Shiraz Pebble)
Cherry Wood with Raven (Woodfinch Cherith)
Passes in the intermediate level (judged by Gill Griffin and Chris Hewison) were awarded to
Garry Ellison with Tilly (Ollerset Shining Nymph).
Three dogs completed their third stage of the intermediate level and were awarded their certificates
Garry Ellison with Tia (Ollerset Rainbow)
Peter Griffin with Jay (Eskwinds Ebony Jay)
Caroline Hewison with Ripple (Donascimento Danilo from Casblaidd)
Thanks to all for taking part, thanks to our hosts, judges and all the helpers for ensuring a successful day.
