Working Test Results

Working Gundog KC Certificate 3rd September 2017

We had 21 applicants and all passed with flying colours,Tim Shipp A panel and KC assessor Alice Wise, with Ken Wilton & Morwenna being assessed to enable them to become KC assessors.

The day consisted of a water retrieve, a seen retrieve over a jump followed by steadiness as though on a shoot day then finishing on a single seen retrieve. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day and found it very useful despite the weather.

A big thank you to Alice for putting the day on and her six helpers John Pascoe and Sara warren (committee) and to Dave Kent, Chris Roberts, Val Brookes and Colin Pengelly (non committee )
