fun, fresh air, and fieldwork for gundogs

Competition Fun for Aldenham Students

by Jacky on October 13, 2014

maryjaneOur London trainer, Mary-Jane Opie, has sent us these great photographs of her Grade One and Two students who train with her at Aldenham Country Park near Elstree.

All the students recently took part in a friendly gundog event. Aldenham were pitched against another gundog training club from West Hertfordshire.

The event was made up of four different tests. Three included retrieves and the fourth tested their obedience skills.

maryjane1None of the students had more than six months training and one member of the team had only attended two Grade One training sessions.

Aldenham still gave the other more experienced team a good run for their rosettes.

Everyone had a great day and gained lots of experience. Well done Aldenham.
