Pippi's Trial Results are HERE.
Pippi is an exciting young bitch who is fast, responsive and very keen. She wasn't an easy dog
at the beginning as she was a devil to stop, but once she mastered that, she was away. She is getting better and better every day and while we are focusing on preparing her for work around the farm, she is showing aptitude on the trial field also. Pippi has gone from being revived from dead the day after she was born, to trial winner in a short space of time. She is proving me wrong...because I wrote her off right from the start! The more I work her, the more I like her. I think she has the qualities needed for a very good Open trial dog (perhaps an understatement!). She started in the nurseries in 2015 and finished second (behind Kinloch Mazi) in the Carmarthenshire Nursery and Puppy aggregate competition. At the 2015 All Wales Nursery Final, Pippi finished 5th.
At 2 years of age, Pippi started to compete in her first season in Open competition. At the Welsh National, she finished 6th on Day 1 and went on to win the Reserve Final and a place on the 2016 Welsh team for the International. At the International, she finished 18th overall, a tremendous accomplishment for a young and very inexperienced bitch. In 2017, she was 5th at the European Nursery Championship in Holland in March and went on to win her day at the Welsh National. In the runoff to determine the Welsh National Champion, Pippi ran brilliantly and was awarded the 2017 Welsh National Champion title. Overall, Pippi has won 7 open trials to date and placed in the top 6 another 24 times. She is a young bitch who is still not fully trained but improving all the time.
