ways to see the natural working instinct of the Gun Dog Breeds.
The Gun Dog Working Test combines basic obedience and retrieval,
done in the field with dummies. The Retrieving Trials test foe obedience,
natural retrieving and hunting ability. During the trial items are
cast from a mechanical thrower and the dogs be able to find the
item and return it (with no rough handling) to their owner.
can compete? Can be limited to registered pure bred
Gundogs (eg Labradors , Golden Retrievers, German Shorthaired Pointers
etc) But any gun dog (even crosses) love and excel at the sport
compete? Retrieving trials help appease the natural
instinct to hunt and retrieve, it works both the dogs mind and body
leaving you with a satisfied, happy pooch.

- Queensland & Victoria branch
The retrieving trials mentioned above are quite different from ours.
We are the only one that runs under the Sporting Shooters Association
in Queensland and we are also the only one that uses the Dokken
Fowl instead of game, making our sport more 'socially' appealing
All retrieving trials in Queensland require dogs to be pedigree....apart
from ours because we come under the auspices of the SSAA and not
the Canine Control Council.
