Retrieving Trial win

On Saturday 1st October NSW WGAA member, Peter Simmons' pointer bitch QUANNAH BELLA APACHE won the Novice AM retrieving trial held by the United Retriever Club of NSW. This ANKC trial was held west of Taree and the judge was Paul Hamson. Bella won from an entry of 13 dogs and scored a total of 181 points.

This was Bella's first retrieving trial and follows on from her impressive first season of field trialling.

Field Assessment Day - 9th October 2011.

For the sixth consecutive year WGAA conducted its unique field assessment day at our excellent Daylesford site. Dogs were again tested over three runs – a land retrieve, a water retrieve and a field run. Wayne Phelps, Barry Kavanagh and Barry Oliver filled the judicial roles and by lunchtime 15 dogs had been run and judged.
This event is always a popular one, replicating as it does scenarios that all breeds of gundogs can participate in.
Following the presentation of certificates most of those in attendance enjoyed some great training opportunities. Many thanks to WGAA’s HPR discipline for organising the day.
