NEFRA Puppy, Novice and Veteran Working Test 2022

27th August 2022 – held at Roanlodge Gundog Training Centre near Buxton / Leek by very kind permission of Lesley Morgan. Wonderful hospitality as always and so welcoming!

The tests were for puppies up to 18 months, novices and veterans (over 8 years).

Our judges for the day were Malcolm Peacock, Audrey Ellis and Phil Robinson – thank you to them for giving up their day for the flatcoats.

Thank you to our sponsors Skinners and a huge thank you to all that helped, whether that was stewarding, throwing dummies, placing dummies, firing pistols, and generally helping with running the day, very much appreciated!
