Regional Police Dog Trials Wentworth Hall 2013

Nottinghamshire Police Dog 'Beano' remains top dog after coming first in this year’s regional Police Dog Trials.
His canine colleague Leo took second place in the two-day competition, held at Wentworth Hall, near Barnsley in South Yorkshire, on Wednesday and Thursday this week (20 and 21 March 2013).
Six-year-old Beano and handler PC Dave Gough scored 910 points out of a possible 1,000 and Leo, aged five, and PC Gavin Berry took 802 points.
The German Shepherd and Malinois cross unleashed outstanding performances and as a result have qualified for the 53rd National Police Dog Trials, to be hosted by South Wales Police, at Margam Country Park in Port Talbot between 5 and 7 April.
PC Gough said: “We are delighted but we don't want to put too much pressure on ourselves, so we're aiming for top 10."
