SRS Crown Championship Series 4: Trial Triple
Series four was a field trial set up testing the dog’s ability to take a line and maintain it. Three marks, all on land and all requiring a water entry and re-entry. Two marks were tight and on similar lines with the final mark at long range with a lengthy swim. The test here is pinpoint marking ability mixed with the dog’s ability to take a straight path. Being the cut from twelve dogs to four, the judge’s leniency was non-existent. Straight lines out and back were at a premium. A tough test it proved to be and the final run to the championship is very close.
The SRS Crown Final Four are:
Stephen Durrance and Dude-78
Tommy Harp and Drake-86
Clark Kennington and Trigger-96
Lyle Steinman and General-100
