There will be three tests, capitalising on the wide range of facilities at the Corbinsbere Gundogs test ground (courtesy of the Bloxworth Estate, Wareham, Dorset and the Macdonald -Smith family). You will encounter various test scenarios you may experience under test conditions. Each entrant is assessed and scored at each test with a mark out of 20.

There are two classes “The Retrievers”, tests will be set as Puppy, Novice and Open Retriever Tests, regardless of which breed you are running, if you have a spaniel and you think it can do it...then do it!!
Secondly “The Spaniels” the tests will be set as Puppy, Novice and Open Spaniel Tests. So any variety Spaniel or HPR can enter, Quartering will be the main assessment along with your basics and the retrieve.
The tests are run by Corbinsbere Gundogs with the emphasis of guiding handlers and their dogs in a test environment. The Judges are experienced in working tests and trials, they are not only there to point score but are on hand to offer advice after each test.
