What made this one even more special is that the judge Ivan Balabanov was judging his first US Trial. As you know I have been an avid follower of Ivan's system of training especially in Obedience. To have the opportunity for him to give an official Judge's critique was really something special. Ivan was very clear and helpful in his critiques and made everyone who did their trial feel comfortable and at ease. To have a Judge who has achieved so much as a competitor give the feedback like he did was very helpful.
