The hosts were George and Kiyoe Oliver of Hall Farm Asgarby, Spilsby and dog food prizes were kindly sponsored by Tony Wright Pest Control.

Unfortunately Tina Habbin had a car accident on her way to judge the test, so her place was taken by Peter Bell, who judged together with Malcolm Smith.

All the groups were tested for steadiness and heelwork on and off the lead, water retrieves, marks and blinds and a walk-up for the older puppies.

The Lincs Area Novice Handler (Puppy) Shield went to Martin Eveleigh with Beautiful Baby Bess.

Thanks to Godfrey Lowe for taking the junior handlers around the tests and introducing them to the judges. There was a very good attendance with some new faces.
