24 handlers and dogs, 22 passes, of which 8 achieved a Distinction and 11 achieved a Merit!
I was surprised at how emotional I found the whole experience. I can only liken it to watching my daughters run a race on school sports day! I found myself urging people on under my breath and whooping with delight when things went well!
There’s now a two week break before the next round of Puppy, Foundation and Bronze courses start all over again on 17 May and continue until the end of June. I think we are already fully booked up and I can expect to be confronted with up to 15 on each course. We’ll manage, I’m sure, not least because I have a really capable, friendly and customer-aware group of Assistants.
