Nutmeg PWD Club successfully hosted its first AKC Obedience Trial on Sunday, May 1 at Tails-U-Win in Manchester, CT. We offered beginner Novice through Utility B as well as Preferred for Open and Utility.
We had 55 dogs with a total entry of 66, five were PWDs. Karen Wrey did the judging honors and it was a pleasure showing to her. Doreen Palmer was our Chief Steward and all-around mentor for making the day run as smoothly as it did. PWD owners were well represented among the steward volunteers: Sue Robinson, Patrice Latrell, Cathy Abbruzzese, Nancy Triou and Kim Holden. Thank you, ladies!
Kim Holden and her girl, Pearl, aka Saltydawg Jewel Of The Deep Blue Sea, had a beautiful test and not only earned their CD title but also earned High Scoring PWD from the Novice Classes. Well done, Kim and Pearl!
We're looking forward to hosting again next year. Start training now and join us then.
