Contestant 229; being judged

SC47 - relationship between man and animal.

The North Devon Show in Umberleigh. Groomed to perfection contestant 229 is being put through her paces by her handler. I love the look of complete trust in the dog's eyes, alert for the next instruction. The handler is utterly absorbed in the dog and has obvious faith in the dog's abilities.

MaggsMep replied to Amelia:

I watch crufts (possibly because Claire Balding presents it) but TV doesn't show the intensity of the relationship.
Thanks for the comment.
