Working Retriever Assessment Day

NEFRA held a Working Retriever Assessment today at Garstang by very kind permission of Simon Fitzherbert-Brockholes. We started early and completed the land retrieves of the assessments for both the novice and intermediate dogs while it was cool, and then moved off to the water to complete both tests on the lovely shaded pond. A lovely day with some challenging tests. Thank you to Lisa Mappin and Caroline Hewison who judged the novices, and Chris Hewison judged the intermediates.

Huge thank you also to Alan Jenkinson for throwing dummies all day, and also Garry throwing this afternoon.
