1 Katy Morris (CKCS) a very natural handler, who moved her dog very well with a nice sized triangle just watch that you start pattern work in correct position. Stood her dog well on the table and in the line-up and moved around her dog to allow a clear view at all times. Just remember to double check dog’s feet when free standing.
