Training Classes.

With the gradual easing of Government Guidance, the Committee have arranged Club Training Classes for Retrievers and Spaniels beginning on Wednesday 19th May and Saturday 22nd May respectively. Please go the Tests and Training page for contact and entry details.

Working Tests.

On the Tests and Training page you will also find details of two Working Tests.

Retriever Novice and Puppy on Sunday 6th June at Blythe House Farm, Hamstall Ridware, Nr Rugeley and Retriever Open on Sunday 12th September at Tansley, Nr Matlock. This will be with dummies in fodder beet.

(Entry for Working Tests is only available via FTMS)

The Committee are delighted to be resuming our summer events programme but, please note, we will be running both the Training Classes and the Working Tests within Government Guidelines which may limit entry numbers and will require member co-operation to ensure compliance.

We respectfully request that all participants at our Training Classes, Working Tests and Field Trials observe the correct dress code as befits the tradition of our sport.
