The traditional WGAA Duck Opening Water Practice Day, held on the weekend before duck opening, once again proved a popular event for tuning up before the big day. 50 people and 30 dogs enjoyed the great weather and the opportunity to give their dogs some training over a variety of runs, either challenging or straightforward on both land and water.
L’Epagnuel Bretons, German Shorthairs, Labradors, Viszlas, German Wirehairs, Springers and Pointers all eagerly took part. Responsible, sustainable hunting requires that all shot game be retrieved and the handlers in attendance were making certain that their gundogs were ready to fulfil this requirement.
