Muut ominaisuudet:

Other qualities:

Yleisvaikutelma: Pienessä stressissä töitä tekevä koira. Koe keskeytyy riistankäsittelyongelmiin.

General appearance: A slightly stressed dog when working. Test ends because of problems handling game.

Excuses: Jalo’s first test for over a year with only a couple of weeks of training. Even though the test ended once again with broken game, the feeling I got from the test was very good (and it wasn’t just euphoria after Luka’s test). He was quite calm when waiting for his own turn and not as stressed when working as in his previous tests. All in all he didn’t really succeed in any task, but his calmness was a positive surprise. This is a very good starting point for the winter’s training and next spring’s tests.
