Obreedience at Crufts

Crufts 2019:

The Obreedience finals held at Crufts took place on the 7th March 2019 and were judge by Anne Bussey. The results were as follows:
Winners Covert Cockups (Cocker Spaniel)
Runners Up Pink Shepherdesses (GSD)
3rd Butterflies (Papillon)
4th Sheltie Superstars (Shetland Sheepdog)

Each Obreedience team comprised four handlers and dogs, who took part in two rounds. The first was a heelwork round completed as a group, with the dogs being assessed on their ability to complete different moves whilst remaining synchronised with their team mates. The second round featured four set exercises and each member needed to successfully complete one of the four different exercises. Points were deducted for any faults and the team with the most points won. The exercises were a retrieve (handler’s own article), a send to bed, stop the dog, and scent over articles.
