On Sunday, 9 March it was the Retrievers’ turn to show their mettle in the first ever AFGRI Animal Feeds Gundog Working Test (GWT).
We had 11 entries in the Beginner Class, nine entries in the Intermediate Class and six of the dogs felt brave enough to give the Advanced Test a try.
11 hours and 166 retrieves later we noticed that there were quite a few tired but smiling faces reflecting on the events of an extremely successful day in the veld.
