By Karen Parkinson

The Pennine Training Area held their 2nd working test of the season on Sunday 2nd of April, at The Hoghton Woodfold Shoot. This was for Open dogs and consisted of 8 very challenging tests over varied terrain – woodland, cover crops, meadow and a river. The four judges each saw 37 dogs in the morning, and the same dogs again in the afternoon with marks out of 20 judged on style, drive, handleability, a work like manner and delivery of the dummies to hand. This event was very kindly sponsored by CSJ Specialist Canine Feeds and AK Gundog Accessories. A fabulous day was had by all.
