The workshop at Stoneleigh was interesting. Ian Horsewood was there with his family and Belle (Aireview Special Print). Nigel King was also there, but didn't bring Amber. Unfortunately the grooming lecture was based on grooming a Westie, which are hand stripped, so wan't a lot of good to us. However, the handling lecture with Michael Gadsby was very interesting and informative, particularly for a novice like myself. He looked at the whole approach to handling, from the way you treated your puppy at home, right through to handling in the ring.
I have attached a few photos. One is of Ian Horsewood's Belle, also a photo of his grandaughter Chelsea Page, who is an up and coming junior handler. She attended the junior handling clinic at the workshop today. The final photo is of the 'boys', Chokko, John and Nigel enjoying a cup of tea!
Thank you to Louise for the photo and report. It was a shame that the workshop was on the same day as the MBTC show. I would certainly have joined you, I would love to have attended the handling lecture.
