  Level 2: Kathy Williams Report:

I should like to thank Margaret Garland for inviting me to judge Level 2 at the West of England Border Collie Club Show, and also Julia Bodsworth, the Chief Steward for her invaluable help and advice, and my Scribe (my husband)  for not only scribing, but driving me to and from the event.  I had a lovely day; the weather was kind to us and it was lovely to see such a variety of breeds of dog working with the class winner being a crossbreed Terrier, and with a Beagle in the placings – proof that ALL dogs can do Rally.  

Of the 30 entries, 20 worked with one withdrawing part way round – a very sympathetic handler keeping the confidence of her Toy Poodle up and improving her enthusiasm for Rally for next time!  There were 15 Qualifiers, 8 of whom qualified Excellent, so the standard was high.  Team work between handlers and dogs was good but a lot of marks were lost unnecessarily by very wide “U” turns and 270 and 360 degree turns – remember that the Regulations state that the handler should make a turn within an approximate diameter of 45cm/18inches, with the dog maintaining a consistent position, depending on size and breed.  

Thank you all for working my course – and Keep On Rallying!
