opening note I would just like to say what an absolute pleasure it was to judge
you all. This show being second only to Crufts, the atmosphere was exciting and
happy, motivated dogs were in abundance. A super weekend.
Stewards A & B:- Ellen Reijenga & Hans Bilius
Yvonne Boschung & “Port West Handsome
Tayma” (Chesapeake Bay Retriever)
truly was a first class round, with style and drive from Tayma and very well
handled by Yvonne, these two could hold their own with the best. A worthy
winner, it was my pleasure to award you first place. Congratulations.
loved this team. Capper gave his all today and was a pleasure to judge. First
class handling from Birgit but again retrieve, scent and recall taking more
points than heel free. Awarded “The Most Promising Dog Trophy” Brilliant.
once again this time with Laurin. Worked first and set the standard for the
day, a hefty loss on retrieve taking it's toll for you but you should be very
proud of yourself and your quality of training. Well done.
6thOliver Gunther & “Extra Hot Aribibi”
by name and Zoom by nature, a super little Collie with attitude and commitment.
The ring work and stays were excellent but scent stole top honours from you
today. So pleased that you still made the line up, a real pleasure to judge.

Decoy: Brigitta v. Oevelen
Anja de Pagter & “Borders for Joy Make My Day ” (Border Collie)
producing the best heelwork mark of the class, coupled with a near faultless
retrieve and good sendaway. So very nearly blew it on scent but still managed
to come out on top. A delight to judge and I was more than pleased to award
this team “Top Honours” Congratulations.
Ton v Santen & “Clan of Stork's Jaguar” (Bearded Collie)
to watch a Beardie work with commitment and enthusiasm. Fast pace and sendaway
were the biggest point takers, but Troy gave of his best and did very well to
secure this place. Very well done.
Claudia Leijs & “Silverwoods Pride Ice” (Border Collie)
heelwork in this class not quite on par as Gimmick's A round with fast pace
costing dearly, sendaway and the sit stay also taking a hefty chunk of the
total marks lost. Well handled by Claudia and very worthy of gaining this
placing. Well done.
Yvonne Boschung & “Port West Handsome Tayma” (Chesapeake Bay Retriever)
another super round from Tayma, some inaccuracies in heelwork but nothing that
cannot be rectified, laying very handy until scent. I predict a bright future
for this team, definitely one to watch.
heelwork from Robbie and Rineke accompanied by a super sendaway, even a messy
retrieve was not to keep them well in contention until the stays finally took
their toll. I was most impressed by this team and indeed awarded Robbie “The
Most Promising Dog Trophy” Onwards and upwards.
Carolin Ellerhausen & “Fellowscreek Gingers Red Final” (Australian
is a cracking little girl and gives of her all with over enthusiasm causing
most of hermistakes. Sendaway, retrieve
and scent were her downfall on this occasion but just loved her attitude. Well
