Retriever Training: session 1

Training Report – From Retriever Training Secretary Annabel Kettler 

“Well, after a rather late start due to, sadly, poor directions; we all eventually met at the new land at Whitley / Nunney, by kind permission of Mrs Angela Yeoman.  There was a good turnout for all classes and training went on until it was dark.  All trainers working out which dogs had returned and how the new dogs fitted in.  Heal work and retrieving work for the puppies, long retrieves for the Novice and overall obedience and retrieving and hunting for the Open.  It was very impressive to watch the Open dogs do their “thing”, by sitting quietly off the lead waiting for their turn, off the mark with speed when sent and then hunting as soon as the whistle was blown.  It was very clear to me how much work everyone had put in to these lovely dogs.

There are a few pictures from the evening however, due to poor light please excuse the quality.  More to come!


I mentioned last night that we are desperate for helpers on Sunday 9th June so if anyone is able to help please let me know or email (Julie).

Next time we are at Bake Barn, Fonthill on 24th April.  The area is not actually at Fonthill, it is just off the A303 and it will be signposted.
