GWC / GUNDOG WORKING CERTIFICATE BY THE BRITISH KC  November 3rd 2017

For the first time in Italy Mirko Galli and his wife Stefania organized a GWC under the rules of the British Kennel Club at Piacenza. This event was a great success. All the participants liked it because it was something new and so far unknown in Italy.
Judge and instructor: Mrs. Anthea Lawrence GB


From left to right: Mirko, Anthea, the interpreter, Stefania


In the morning there was a steadiness/walk-up/marking training.
The test begun after lunch. 16 dogs participated divided in 2 groups. The final step was a drive, all dogs worked together. Quite exiting :-)


During the training in the waiting area Tadi was completely relaxed

 


Tadi is concentrating to mark…


After lunch Tadi is ready for the test


Walk-up in the woods with blinds behind and marks in front of the line while the other group had to show steadiness


My group during the steadiness


After the steadiness the dogs have been sent for a free search


Tadi passed the GWC meaning if I ever show him on the famous dog show Cruft’s he is qualified for the gundog/working class :-)

WORK SHOP ONLY FOR CHESAPEAKE AND DUCK TOLLING RETRIEVER 
June 3rd / 4th 2017 at Treviolo (BG)

I invited Jason Mayhew (GB) to Italy because he is an excellent trainer not only for Labradors and Goldens but also for Chesapeake's and Toller's. We worked in two groups, advanced and beginner. Saturday it was a real hot day on Sunday it was cooling down with some rain in the morning. Everybody was very pleased about the way how Jason is training gun dogs. He had a lot of patience and at the end every dog, every handler was successful. We all hope he'll comes back once more to Italy.


The beginner group


"Sushi" one of the Toller's learned how to hold a Dummy properly


Each beginner dog had its "private lesson"


This Chessie is called "Curly" but she is definitely not a Curly


Jason explains always to everybody why one should train this or the other way


Jason looks very critical at the dogs of the advanced class, no "sneaking off", no excuses...


Part of the advanced group. A lucky Flat could participate because a Chessie couldn't come

 


WORKING TEST TREVIOLO (BG) May 21st 2017
Judges: Melanie Brooks (GB), Diana Stevens (GB), Gian-Luca Renier (I), Raffaele Navone (I)

Price giving. What a great surprise, Tadis' 1st victory, 75 out of 80 points!


Like Formula One: all the winners received a Champagne shower and...


... as you see Guy got a heavy one


The winning teams beginner class

WITH FRIENDS AND DOGS IN GREAT BRITAIN
March 2017


We rented a lovely, and cozy holiday home at Stedham/West Sussex


The "backyard": all public fields and footpaths, great for dog walking and they just loved to run and fool around


The remains of Cowdray House / Midhurst.
Burnt-out in 1793


We had very challenging training days with Jason Mayhew. Catherine with Theya. She looks very alike her mother Gleam


Unfortunately Gaby's dog Wuno (Tadis brother) was injured. Therefore she handled Tadi and she handled him extremely well. The brown dog sitting aside is Tanner another daughter of Gleam.


We also worked on big fields. Gaby and Tadi


Tadi


The youngsters had do deal with long marks, Gleam as an advanced dog with real long markings and blinds


Myself and Gleam


Jason, Gaby, myself, Catherine and Andy. We had a wonderful, exiting time together

THE CHESAPEAKE COLOUR DEADGRASS 17/03/2017


For all the people which are not so familiar with the colour Deadgrass in Chesapeake’s I show you a nice example of my Gleam. As you see in a dry (dead) grassland she is almost invisible.
