    Default Congratulations are in order

    When someone is new to field trials, does her own training and handling, and is very successful, that's worthy of hearty congratulations! Hope Roberts of BC Canada is such a trainer. With one dog she won 2 Qualifyings in a 3 week period. With young Jack she really lit it up in Junior/Derby, finishing #2 in Canada this year; 27 points in only 8 trials! 5 wins in those 8 starts!



    Qual in the spring. Outstanding work by all, and congratulations to Hope, Caesar, and Jack!

    Like many people, Hope began training and competing with retrievers in the Obedience ring. Having discovered fieldwork, and how challenging and fun it is, she dug into a proven program, and really put herself to the task. A few seminars and lots of study have made her a competitor to be reckoned with!
