Young Handlers trialling at Shap

Young handlers Claudia Pattinson from Northumberland with her dog Jean, Elizabeth Harrison with Sal, Robert Harrison with Lad and Murray Common with Queen, all competed at Katy Cropper's Shap trial on 9th June 2019.

The Blue Peter film crew were present at the event, and captured these remarkable young handlers and their dogs trialling. Unfortunately due to BBC programme time restraints full coverage of the runs were not televised, however there were some brief highlights broadcast on Blue Peter on 20th June. 

Results of the trial were as follows:

1st: Claudia Pattinson with Jean

2nd: Elizabeth Harrison with Sal

3rd: Robert Harrison with Lad

4th: Murray Common with Queen

Congratulations to each of the young handlers and their dogs for their achievement, and we look forward to seeing them all develop over the coming years. 

It is lovely to watch and enjoy our next generation of triallists, the support given to these young handlers by the trialling community is fantastic.
