Test success for students in Jersey

by Jacky on October 21, 2016

Students in Jersey, training with our instructor Jo Laurens (Contact Joanna Laurens), have been busy this year working through the grades.

These students are assessed by Jo, a video taken of the test, and then our senior assessor in the UK then does a second assessment to confirm all the marks on the score sheets.

Some of these students have very kindly allowed us to share the videos of them taking tests on our facebook page – so if you would like to watch the videos and find out what’s involved in taking a test, join us on facebook!

Many congratulations to the following students for test success:

Georgina Sawyer and Toba Distinction Grade 4 Retriever.










Ellen Bourke and Hugo Distinction Grade 2 Retriever.







Michelle Bouchard and Mossi Merit Grade 2 Hunting Retriever.







Alan Bouchard and Tala Pass for Grade 3 Retriever.








Lizzie Skinner and Digby got a Merit for Grade 2 Hunting Retriever.










Laura Makin and Ernie Merit for their Grade 2 Spaniel.










Caroline Le Breton and Otis Pass Grade 2 Retriever.








David Fisher and Dougal Merit Grade 1 Retriever.
