Confirmed date: Sunday 27th November 2016

Registration will be at the venue at 10am - location will be Myrniong - RSVP to Prue by 11th November ( for further details.

This training day is for VGC members with gundogs who have received basic retrieving training.

(Non-members are welcome to join the club online prior to the day - membership is $20: )

It is for people who are training their dog to meet RATG, Beginners Test or Novice Retrieving Trial level. There will be basic and more advanced training available so will suit handlers who are already competing.

Instruction will depend on the feedback we receive from handlers via RSVP. It may include but will not be limited to:

    Water work especially training for direct entry and return
    Marking – introducing ‘factors’ and extending distances
    Introduction to handling
    Training on your own
    Delivery to hand

Please bring with you a tie down peg, lead, dummies, water for dog, chair, gumboots and lunch. Extra dummies will be available if required. We will likely be training at a local winery so it would great if you could budget for something from their cellar door or gift shop. They have some gorgeous gifts that would be perfect for Christmas and I can personally vouch for the port (hic!)

Please indicate your intention to attend with Prue at by 11th November. If you require further information Prue can be contacted on 5368 7264.

A reminder to VGC members that our training day is drawing closer. So as to properly plan the day I need numbers with an indication of skill level by next Friday 11th. The property is looking great - green and all the dams full! Prue
