RETRIEVING ABILITY TESTS FOR GUNDOGS

On 1 January 2011 the rules for the new discipline of Retrieving Ability Tests for Gundogs (RATG) were introduced.  The club decided to hold its first RATG trial on Saturday 8 October on the same day as our Restricted Obedience Trial and Championship Show.


Although RATG offers two classes, Novice and Open, we decided to hold a Novice class only for our first trial to gauge support for the new event.  We ended up with a bumper entry of 22 dogs in this class, with 20 competing on the day and six qualifying passes.


We are looking forward to future Retrieving Ability Tests for Gundogs.
