Hertfordshire Assessments

by Jacky on April 1, 2015

Our Hertfordshire trainer, Mary-Jane Opie has sent us this lovely photograph of her students after they took part in an assessment day on 19th March with Gundog Club Assessor, Tony Brazier.

Opie19marchCongratulations to Jeremy Payne who passed the Grade One test with Toller and Susan Brigden who passed Grade One with Dora and also gained a Distinction at Grade Three with Lottie.

Well done to the other students taking part in tests on the day but who were judged ‘not ready’. They were Daniel Wade with Toothless, Mandy Beuselink with Boris, Hilary Burbidge with Matlock and Shelley Morgan with Archie.

They all gained lots of experience and as Mary-Jane said “Eight weeks ago they would not have dreamed of even taking the assessment, better luck next time”.
