mum24dog Posted April 14, 2017 Report Share Posted April 14, 2017 Our club team at Crufts last month - second to run in blue around 5 mins in. Just for background, ours was probably the youngest dog team and the first time for all of them. Many team dogs tend to be successful and reliable towards the end of their competitive career. Competition is open to all grades of dog so the course has to reflect this although, as you will see, quite a few fell into not very bad traps, including the Team GB Manager. Amazed at how many missed contacts, especially the dog walk. Put it down to pressure. Around 10-30am on the Thursday, first day of Crufts, so only an audience of around 2k (6k capacity) but still enough to make a lot of noise. You can't judge by 1 run. Dog 1 came 6th in a Champ final of around 180 dogs on Saturday. - clear in Jumping and Agility preliminary rounds and in the Final. Dog 2 going for a steady clear. Handler 3 running with severe back spasms. Dog 4 (mine with my daughter) is lucky to get trained once a fortnight but still would have won 2 classes last weekend but for a clipped pole in each. (Commentator wrong - he's the 4th dog my daughter has run at Crufts.) It was great fun. Hope the video plays. team Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
