NEFRA Training and Working Test for Puppies and Novice Dog/Novice Handlers. Welbeck, Nr Worksop, Notts.

On 10th April, 2022 NEFRA gave members the opportunity to train their younger and less experienced dogs and offer handlers help and support.

A huge thank you to Garry Ellison, Andy Sweeney and Gill Awty for taking the training sessions in the morning.

The afternoon was dedicated to a working test.

The day was held with very kind permission of the estate management and the gamekeeper

The working test was judged by Garry Ellison and Gill Awty. A big thank you to them and to all who helped throwing dummies, stewarding and generally helping the day to run well, it is very much appreciated indeed. Thank you also to Skinners for their sponsorship.
