The Working Curly Coated Retriever
The ‘Confidence in the Water’ Gundog Training Day arranged by CCRC Working Co-ordinator, Lesley Eden, took place at Hopesay Arboretum, Craven Arms, Shropshire, on the 17 June 2023. Those taking part had a lovely day in beautiful surroundings…

Lesley Eden told us…
The training yesterday put the handlers and the dogs through their paces. Exercises – a walk up with in front and behind dummies, the dogs collecting the behind and the handles the in front, checking on steadiness and marking ability. Water was the order of the day, and they absolutely did not disappoint and would have worked there all day.

Then a jump with a seen and replace. All these were interspersed with a coffee break and Lemon Drizzle Cake (thanks to Steve) and Chocolate and Nut Brownies, a fun time had by all!
Thanks Lesley. And thanks to Sarah Finch for the lovely photographs.
