Local handler, Iain McConnell enjoyed huge success with a near-perfect result in the annual Dougarie dog trial held recently at Birchburn Farm, Shiskine.
Judging the event was Neil Henderson of Kilpatrick who awarded points, out of a potential 100 points, in the various categories in which the eight entrants ran.
Topping the tables in first place was Iain McConnell, who with Sam, earned a very respectable 97 points. Not only that but Iain also took second place with 96 points with another dog, Drift. Liz Robertson filled the third place position with 66 points.
