Working Events

NEFRA host two working test days every year, one in the spring and one in the autumn.  We also host a cold game test or training day in the autumn.

We also put forward teams of our better dogs to compete against other clubs during the summer months.  Our members are also able to take part in the Working Retriever Assessments to gain certification of competence in working ability of their dogs.
