29.08.2010 Lappeenranta Flatcoated retriever championship

Luka participated in the Flatti-kisälli (flatcoat-apprentice) again, which is a beginner’s class hunt test and unofficial dog show. The show judge was Elena Ruskovaara. This was the very first Flatcoated retriever championship where the yellow colour was not disqualifying feature – thanks to the new Flatcoated retriever championship rules! Luka got a nice evaluation at the show. Luka got no prize in the hunt test and was ordered to “go to the gym to lift some weights” (Luka didn’t have enough power to retrieve 2,5 kg / 5,5 lbs Common Eider all the way back to the handler, that’s why no prize). The trip was really nice and the final of the championship a thriller to look at. Pictures of the weekend can be found here. Luka’s evaluations of conformation and hunt test
