2011 League Results

Well done to All LL2 members. You've all worked hard and made good progress with your furry friends.

Last year some of us had the chance to learn at the Lurcher Training Days with Ray Ellerton. In previous years, Ray competed with Razz the Lurcher and Slipper the Whippet. He currently has young Lurchers in training which have been bred from wife Amanda's Grade 7 Lurcher, Bella. Ray helped us with motivation, contacts and tightening turns to name but a few. We hope to have some more of these training days as, after speaking to the handlers, they all enjoyed themselves and went home with inspiration from what they had learnt. Thanks to Ray.

2010 League Winners

A word to the winners from Paula and Alex Trigg, 'We are proud of all the handlers who have taken part in Lurcher League 2. Some of the Lurchers have needed a lot of patience and understanding from their handler and this has paid off as they start to make good progress, first with what had seemed like an elusive Clear Round and then onto Placed Rosettes! 

It's been nice to hear Lurcher League 2 handlers have met up at shows and supported each other too. Our Winners and Runners Up worked very hard with some moving up more than one grade last year, so a special Well done to them!

Thanks for your support, and good luck to all the Lurchers in 2011.

Lurcher League 2 encourages handlers with a training/motivation ideas and gives them a chance to get to know other people with similar dogs. It's moved on a bit now with some handlers entering Lurcher Pairs/Teams together or just meeting up at shows for a chat and progress reports giving them a chance to compare their results against others. 

Congratulations to all handlers and their furry friends, some of whom have succeeded in overcoming training problems and are starting to get clear rounds and places to those who have won out of not one but two grades over the year, and even taking part in Semi Finals and Finals

It just shows that with patience and determination you can achieve your dreams.   Keep up the good work and hope to see you at a show soon.
