2nd: 28 Jackson Mr W & Mrs S – Silverleigh Ziggi at Parkrise. Black and gold 9 years of age, of medium size, nice strong head, alert expression and good ear carriage, nice dark eyes, good shoulder placement, would have preferred a slightly better top line, well moulded croup and tail set, sadly unsound today

JUNIOR HANDLING Judge: Dennis Oakes

Class A – 11 years and under
1. Tom James (age 8 years) Tom stood his dog correctly, he was a bit nervous at first in movement but he held his composure and finished off very well. He answered all the questions I asked him and put in a good performance for his age and size. He was also reserve best handler. Good job well done.

Class B – 12 to 16 years
1. Isabel Harris (age 13 years) Isabel stood her dog very well in correct position. She moved her dog very well with complete control. She was full of confidence and bonded with her dog completely. She was very good with questions of the breed and a very worthy winner of this class and also best junior handler. Very well done and will go on to be a very good handler as she gets older.
2. Christopher Mountain-Freeman (age 11 years) Christopher did very well considering he only met the dog he was handling 15 minutes before the class. He stood the dog correctly and answered all the questions I asked him. He moved the dog very well at times but was not in contr ol all the time which was due to the dog being not known to him. I am sure he would have done better with his own dog. Well done, a brave effort.


Class A winner Tom James &
Class B winner Isabel Harris

And a word from Tom…………
My name is Tom James and I’m 8 years old. I live in Barnsley with my mum, dad, brother Jack and sister Imogen also my pet GSD Danny, who is 11 years old.

I wanted to do Junior Handling when I was only 3 years old but I couldn’t do it until I was 6years old because some GSDs aren’t easy to handle when you are only 3. I only do Junior Handling at Derbyshire GSD Club Shows in Sheffield where the shows are held. I think I will do Junior Handling at other shows when I am older.

I used to handle my dog Danny but he is now too old so I handle with my cousin’s dog, Freddy, who is 9 years old now. I think I might need another GSD soon, perhaps one of my grandma’s GSDs.

I was happy that I won the Junior Handling (6-11 years) at Derbyshire GSD Championship Show on 4th June 2017. I got a fantastic trophy and rosette for winning and I would like to thank the GSD Breed Council for sponsoring the Junior Handling at the show and the judge, Dennis Oakes, for asking me questions that I could answer and being very kind.

JUNIOR HANDLING
Would like to congratulate all the handlers today.

11 YEARS & UNDER

1st FRANKIE WILSON age 9.This young lady has a real connection with her charge-who is a very strong male for his age and handlers. She has the knowledge to cope with the questions I asked giving correct answers. She was able to show the dogs teeth with confidence, free stood him and moved him well. You could see they were an experienced partnership. But for me would have liked handler, even though experienced, to have had more communication with him. Happy to award her Reserve Junior Handler

2nd TOM JAMES age 9. This young man did really well. Not as knowledgeable as 1st but was confident enough to attempt to answer my questions. Wasn’t confident showing teeth but stood his dog quite well. He found it very hard to control the movement of the dog but really tried and kept going well done.

12 YEARS TO 16 YEARS

1st CHRISTOPHER MOUNTAIN-FREEMAN 12yrs. This young man impressed me a lot. Didn’t handle his own bitch. Found him very knowledgable. He presented his charge well, was able to show teeth with confidence. Moved her with drive and purpose keeping her well under control balanced and purposeful throughout, constantly talking and reassuring her. Very well done very pleased to award him BEST JUNIOR HANDLER

2nd ISABELLE HARRIS 13yrs another very capable young handler. Very respectful to her charge. Not as confident in her answers has 1st and this was the fine line between both. Was confident to show teeth, stood well and moved with drive, working balanced and purposeful, needed a little more communication but did very well
