Many thanks to the judges, workers, and handlers who were so gracious in assisting me this past weekend at the San Jose Retriever Club Field Trial in Corning.
The February training day turned into a really fun event with the "decoy" challenge, wherein a bird was thrown into a very large spread of decoys (including the kind that move around!) The dogs were timed when they crossed back over the line with the bird (younger dogs) and when the trained dogs delivered to hand. Several handlers re-ran and bettered their times, changing the final results. Results were: Junior went to "Ellie" Caringello (20.36); Biz Carngello (24.93) and Ty Caringello (39.93) Senior went to Gracie Reilly (26.63); Ben Mauzy (28.07) and Trooper McGinnis (29.36 Master went to Shooter Judd (27.83); Trixie Reed (28.32); and Cassie Mooney (32.83)
