Training Test Evening 14/08/18

Trendeal Farm, Ladock

Judged by  Mr B Abbott and Mr J Pascoe

This summer due to having a great group of handlers coming to our monthly training evenings, i thought it would be lovely to put on a little test to show them how well they had progressed and to prove that nerves can change the way you handler your dog ! Two judges, Brian Abbott and John Pascoe helped us out, 6 tests were put on, 3 under each judge. Had 15 entries and we were definitely against the light but thrilled to say the competitors managed to complete all 6 tests. Though we were doing the prize giving under the light of car headlights. Thanks to Jill Philp for all her help and Brian and John for judging, a great evening was had by all.   Pia Birnie

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 )
