Nefra held a training day in Budby, Nottinghamshire on Monday 1st May. Our trainers for the day were Andy Sweeney and Gary Ellison. This training had water available for the dogs and handlers to use so we took advantage of this wonderful opportunity.
We had an advanced novice and intermediate groups in a morning session. The trainers covered water retrieves and how to direct your dog for a land retrieve when water is close by, which is always a challenge for this breed who love to swim!
There was plenty of space so the trainers also tested the dogs outside of their comfort zone with longer retrieves. They all handled the extra distance really well.
Many thanks to the land owner Andrew Naish and the keeper Phil Swan for hosting us on this fantastic day.
