Nutmeg’s September Water Trial was amazing!

What made it amazing? The weather was spectacular, the teams were eager and ready to trial, the volunteers stepped up and did whatever was needed, the food was plentiful and delicious, Judge Greg Illchuk was fun and fair with training tips and suggestions, Nutmeg’s wares were displayed beautifully for all to browse and buy, and everyone seemed delighted to be there and celebrate our amazing working dogs. Six teams qualified:

  • Sue Lefebvre and Sketch earned their CWDX
  • Kathan Kennedy and Steel earned their second leg of WWD
  • Kris Cofiell an Bindi earned their WWD
  • Janet Kutner and Fenwick earned their AWD
  • Gale Meadow and FiJi earned their Junior Certificate
  • Kari Lavali and Scully earned their Junior Certificate

Thanks everyone for doing your part to make
Nutmeg’s Water Trial a success!
