Month: September 2019


Over 20 competitors enjoyed some beautiful Autumn sunshine at today’s working test.

Judged by the well respected Dave Rayner, Anita Jones and Peter Amor each dog had a combination of marked and blind retrieves

The woodland offered some valuable shade and excellent cover to show the dogs hunting prowess and a water test allowed a cooling off.

As always, we are extremely grateful to our host Tom Sheppard for allowing the club to run its Tests on his farm, the judges for their time and words of encouragement and to the tireless team of helpers, which collectively make these days possible. THANK YOU.
