Our Spring Assessment Test for any variety spaniel (excluding ESS and Cockers) took place on Saturday 20th April 2024 at Racomitrium Gundogs Training Ground, Peterborough, by kind permission of Paul Gripton, Racomitrium Gundogs.

We had a great day with 20 running overall. A lot of good dog work was observed with the Open Dogs put under demanding test conditions with a blind retrieve over a ditch.

The weather stayed dry with a biting, cold wind that swirled across the flat fenland.

Our grateful thanks to our hosts for allowing us to use their ground and to our judges Claire Knowles and Fiona Stevenson. Also, thank you to the generosity of our sponsors AK Gundog Accessories and Sneyds Wonderfeeds for providing prizes to the winners.

Finally thank you to the Working Sub-Committee and others who helped throughout the day, assembling tables and gazebos, topping up refreshments,  throwing dummies, selling raffle tickets and taking photographs of the day.

Congratulations to everyone who were placed and thank you to everyone for entering and having a go, particularly those who are new to gundog tests. 

We look forward to seeing you again at our Autumn Assessment Test in September.  Further details will be available soon.
