Monday at 19:26: No trophy was won, but as Ms. Petersen wrote to us yesterday: "I learned a few things the hard way, but that is the road to experience. Most important was, that my FANTASTIC yellow partner, Ravensbank Hazel (Hazel), worked really well, at was happy and smart looking both of the days. Than means everything. We came in as number 10 out of 24 dogs, and I am really proud of this result".

This is really well done, and to the best of my knowledge the first time a Ravensbank-offspring makes it to the Championship, and in fact makes it to be among the best half. Very warm congratulations, and we are looking forward to the continuation.

25-09-2016: Last weekend Ms. Pia Bielefeldt participated in two working tests with the lovely Ravensbank Economist (Mynte). On the Saturday Pia and Mynte became 7WT, in open class, which in light of the design of the test (probably not too realistic) was a very good result. Sunday again was a very different sort of test, but in the best possible sense. Very realistic towards a shoot, with lots of stress and waiting time. Really the sort of test a well trained bitch like Mynte is prepared for. Mynte scored 20-17-20-20-16-20 and became 2WT only one point from nr 1.

Very warm congratulations to Ms. Bielefeldt with this great result together with her "herbal plant".

12-09-2016: Ms. Malene Petersen, with Ravensbank Hazel (Hazel) became second winner on yesterdays obedience test in A-class. This qualified the couple to the Elite-class, and participation in the Danish Obedience Championship which is held on 24 and 25 September 2016. Well done! We are cheering on the sideline, and wish Ms. Petersen and Hazel all the best.

05-09-2016: Ravensbank Duff (Duff) has been in his first intermediate class at official cold game test, and received a first prize. He did remarkably well.

We add, that Duff on the day was only 1 year and 4 months, and congratulate Mr. Rydahl as the handler of the young and talented Duff.

03-09-2016: At official Working Test in open class, Ms Helle Voigt with Ravensbank Mint (Minte) was honoured with Judges Choice by two of the four judges, an Irish and an Italian judge. As I have written another place on the website, I consider the Judges Choice award as an esteemed appraisal, as it goes beyond mathematical summing up, and rather rewards the handler and dog that works with style, speed and efficiency.

This has been a great August for Ms. Voigt. First she won the Young Dogs' Championship with her bitch Labbe, and now this great result with Minte. Very warm congratulations to Ms. Voigt!

If you wonder what the family relations between Søren and Helle are, they are in fact cousins.
