Gundog Training


Training Classes 2020

Three Ridings Labrador Club, Gundog Working events 2020.
It is with regret that in response to the Government advice on Covid 19 virus and the KC announcement of 17 March, the club has made the decision to cancel our Working Tests at Rosedale, 29 March and Skipster Hagg, 19 April & Aske 14 June plus Studley Royal, Training Day 10 May. In addition to which the summer training evenings will not take place.
Anyone who has entered via FTMS will be refunded by FTMS, if postal entry by cheque the cheque will be destroyed or if paid by BACs the club will send a refund.
We will monitor the situation and the advice given in order to make a decision regarding the remainder of the summer events which will be announced in mid June.
At this moment in time we envisage that the Field Trial programme will run and we hope to be able to schedule some activities later in the summer/autumn dependant on developments with Covid 19.

Summer Training Evenings

The club is fortunate to have access to excellent training grounds north of Wetherby and just off the A1. All dogs attending should have previously achieved a reasonable level of obedience and be capable of walking to heel on a lead. Any dog considered disruptive to the group may be asked to leave.

Those attending will be run as two groups – Novice and Open standard. The Novice class will have the benefit of experienced instruction whilst the Open group will be invited to take advantage of the excellent ground, and be invited to suggest the standard of retrieves. Both groups will have opportunity to retrieve from and across water. 

The cost per dog is £6 per evening and all will meet at 7.00pm and conclude at 9.00pm

If we get warm summer evenings it’s worth bringing insect repellent!
