Kennel Club Gundog Working Certificate on Dummies

Today saw the training ground transformed to a mock shoot for the final Training day of the season, where 11 trainees were assessed for the Kennel Club Working Gundog Certificate. The Sun turned the autumn colours into the perfect backdrop to a day that was enjoyed by all.
I’d like to thanks our Assessors today, Gordon Bowers and Jon Luke, who gave the group a thorough set of tests, including simulated beating lines, steadiness at the point of flush, Picking up after the drive, steadiness in the hide during a duck drive on the lake, Retrieving lost birds over obstacles, and the ever stressful “walking the dogs off lead to heel between drives!

I’d like to thank todays guns,our trainers Dave Whittaker,Ian Porter and Jo Tucker, who shot a very good average, Special thanks to Jo for todays photos.
Of the Eleven entrants we are proud to say all Eleven Passed the Assessment with flying colours, you should all be very proud of the hard work you have put in this year, all dogs would be a credit on any shoot!
