19th of September Christchurch and District Gundog Club had organized the gundog water training for its members. Spaniels and retrievers competed together for the trophy and rosettes.
1st test: a walk up off the lead. On the gun shot the dogs should sit.
2nd test: split retrieve with 2 dummies thrown by 2 helpers. Expected nice retrieve with the proper delivery.
3rd test: retrieve from the water. Nice pond-hand delivery BEFORE the dog shakes!
Congratulations for all the winners in both groups: Novice and General!
After the training all the members went to the Drusilla’s Inn where over a delicious meal – Roast Pork they have celebrated and discussed the training.
