There are separate tests for each category of gundog (retriever, spaniel and HPR). Candidates are assessed by a Gundog Club Intructor that has not been involved in coaching them.
Each test compares the dog with the standard set for dogs at that level. There is no competition with other dogs.
If you and your dog meet the standard on the day, you will pass the test. There are three levels of pass: Pass, Merit, and Distinction.
Tests can be booked by groups or individuals. To book your test, please follow the instructions here.
