AA Cold Game Test. August 28th 2021.
Yesterday the Norfolk Gundog Club held their Cold Game test at Manor Farm Feltwell. There were 33 entries, and 27 dogs ran on the day. The weather was cloudy and not too hot which was ideal for the dogs! The high standard of dog work meant 8 dogs went through to the last test – the dogs had to run down a very steep bank across a track into the beet field to hunt for a blind. It was an excellent day with both handlers, dogs and helpers all enjoying watching some outstanding work by the dogs.
We are very grateful to The Storey Family for allowing us to use their land - the support of the landowners is critical to us enjoying our sport. Our thanks to Skinners for their continuing support of all our tests and Trials. Many thanks to our Judges – Phil Askew – Richard Beckerleg – Peter Hurst and Hayley Drew for their positive and professional approach – we all appreciate you giving up your time to enable these tests to be run. Thank you to all the helpers who give their time so freely and are always cheerful!
