Field Assessment Day - 27th September 2015

On a fantastic spring day WGAA Vic’s Field Assessment Day was held at the Daylesford property that has hosted the event for many years. This property is perfect for this family friendly event and many members camped overnight in order to help set up runs for the next day.
Special thanks to Wayne Phelps who is instrumental in organizing this day.
Each of the 25 dogs was given 3 runs – a land retrieve, a water retrieve and a field run.
The dogs were  scored in 5 categories in each run, categories that related closely to actual field work.
Certificates were awarded to all participants.
