Tanya Martyn, who serves as the Secretary of the Silver City Kennel Club, and Secretary of the Broken Hill All Breeds Obedience Dog Club, has successfully competed her dogs at the Golden Retriever Club of South Australia Championship Show and Trials.
The event represented a special occasion for the South Australian Club, as they celebrated their delayed 50th Anniversary Championship after two years of COVID cancellations.
For her part, Ms Martyn has attended the competition on many occasions in previous years, and has previously achieved strong results at the annual show.
Ms Martyn once again enjoyed success in the show-ring and the Rally-Obedience ring on Saturday.
Ch Baradav Wicked Ways RN, pet name Jarra, placed 1st in Veteran Class, Reserve Dog Challenge, and Opposite Veteran in Show, under Judge Pluis Davern (USA).
Ch Baradav Kindred Spirit (ai) CD RE TKS, pet name Kensi, placed 2nd in Rally Excellent, and 1st in Rally Advanced. Impressively, Kensi also achieved the Highest Score in the Rally Trial under Judge Tony Brennan (SA).
Ms Martyn also entered Kensi in the Rally-Obedience Trials, and she passed and placed 2nd in both Rally Excellent, and Rally Advanced, under Judge Brian Fielder (SA).
Ms Martyn thanked Barb Joseph and Caroline Murphy for showing Jarra on her behalf, and she also thanked Janet Siddall for her help and support over the weekend.
Mrs Siddall, who serves as the Treasurer of the Broken Hill All Breeds Obedience Dog Club, attended the Championships with Ms Martyn, and assisted the South Australian Club by stewarding throughout the weekend.
Ms Martyn’s results are just the latest in a long list of achievements for members of the local obedience and show clubs, with members of both clubs recently achieving passes and titles both locally and interstate.
The next local trials for the Broken Hill All Breeds Obedience Dog Club will be held over the weekend of September 9 and 10.
