July saw our 4th annual Funday at Riverlily. 100 Riverlilians and their dogs competed in traditional dog show classes which were judged by David, from Davies Vets and Sue. They also took part in scurries and an obedience test too. Everyone was fed by chef Mick who cooked burgers galore on the BBQ. Thanks to everyone who came along and a special BIG THANKS to everyone who helped out on the day and leading up to the event! Also BIG THANKS to our sponsors Davies Vetinary Specialists and Titmuss Wholesalers. Click the link for all the photos of the day and the write up of the results.

If you are ever at a loose end we could always do with helpers to put out dummies for us, throw marks, fire guns and be in charge of a walkie talkie! Helpers get tea and cake. :-)
Helping is a great way to learn about dogs and how they approach work out in the field. It is also a great way to watch different styles of handling and to then hone your own skills as a gundog handler.

Another great afternoon training with Sue and Jan....our resident Obedience Trainers. The dogs and handlers were put through their paces. Heelwork, stop whistle, recall and general good dog manners were all covered. Good work everyone!

Here are Mya, Roxy and River doing their daily rounds of pushing the birds back into the woods and pens. It is great steadiness training as all the dogs walk to heel whilst the birds scuttle about in front of them. Brilliant steadiness training for the fast approaching shooting season.
River just has to carry something in his mouth no matter what he is doing! :-)
