Riverview Farm Kennel can look back to an amazingly successful trialing year in the UK! Our trainer Kevin Haynes did a fantastic job with our dogs and it is for sure a year to remember.
The achievement of the season for us was for sure making up the first American bred Labrador to be a UK Field Trial Champion: FTCH Riverview Farm Finalist aka Brainy.
Kevin tells us: "Brainy has been a pleasure to train and to make him up to a champion in only 6 trials was a testament to the dogs abilities."
Also our new novice dogs Peppi and Bliss had their successes! "I enjoyed the challenge with them this season and looking forward to competing them in open trials next season."
Overall Kevin Haynes reports: "In short it has been a season to remember and one I will never forget. Traveling the length and breadth of the UK competing and testing our dogs against all the different types of environments found in both Scotland and England, all our dogs performed as expected and continued to show their reliability while competing at the highest level here in the UK."
