Brigg Kintore's champion dog

Kintore man Roddy McBain has been having considerable success this year in field trials with his black labrador Brigg. But it could have been so different. When Brig, or Levenghyl Isle of Mull to give him his official title, was 12 months Roddy considered selling him because he found him so hard to train.

But Brigg's list of successes speak for themselves:

Brigg poses with his awards

On top of 23 field trial and test awards, last year Brigg won a two-day qualifying stake that took him travel Windsor Estate to compete in the British championships. Roddy and Brigg also travelled to Blenheim Palace to compete in the CLA game fair, the biggest in Europe with the Scottish team taking first prize

Roddy has the support of locals who allow Brigg to train on suitable land, Don Valley Turf and Seeds land of the Allan family, Tom Forests Quarry and at Savik. Brigg is a proven sire and is a father six times to date.

Roddy uses his experience to undertake private training lessons for people with labradors and he will take in the occasional dog for training depending on time available.
