Obedience News: Dot & Dora are placed 7th place out of 42!

I took Dora to Southport DTC for their annual obedience show. A large class of 42 we didn’t finish until 4.30. Dora lost 2.75 marks in the KC special pre-beginners which was a very strong class. We lost the run off for 6th but came home with a smile clutching the seventh rosette. It the best Dora had ever worked was so pleased. Although very windy her stays were rock solid. But Dora being Dora turned into the terrier from hell in the beginners decided she had had enough and worked several feet away from me but that’s terriers for you. Best wishes Dot

Fantastic Dot! It is a great achievement to be good enough just to enter obedience competitions with a Bedlington let alone winning a 7th place out of 42 you must be delighted!!!! It takes a lot of commitment and patience to get a bedlington to competition standard!

How fantastic! I know just how much work it takes to even get a bedlington to acknowledge that you are talking to them, Lesley really cheered me up by saying that it took five years to get Parker (jazz's dad) to get a clear round, I'm still in hope of a controlled attempt, so well done you.
