The German Shorthaired Pointer Club of Victoria held a RATG judged by Roz Buckley on Sunday the 23rd of April, 2023 at Nyora.
What a wonderful day we had for our Retrieving Ability Test for Gundogs on Sunday 23rd April, held on private property in Nyora. A great entry of 22, 11 in both the Novice and Open classes. Breeds competing were GSP, Golden Retriever, Labrador Retriever, Weimaraner (both Short and Long Haired), English Springer Spaniel, Hungarian Vizsla, GWP and Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever. Our Judge was Ms Roz Buckley and it was wonderful that she awarded 7 passes in Novice and 8 passes in Open. Novice runs were single marks on land and into water. Open was a walk up into water and a double rise on land. Really enthusiastic dogs that enjoyed the runs was a joy to watch. The Club provided a great lunch for competitors while awaiting the presentations. Huge thanks to my helpers on the day especially Sylvia Meekings who came just to help. Everyone enjoyed a wonderful day with their dogs and great company.
