For the first time, it was allowed to organise outdoor activities again in Corona-time, in the Netherlands, under strict rules of the RIVM.
On the 2nd Pentecost day, Dylan had a good day at the Workshop of the gundog trainingschool More than Dogs at Klundert.
An almost real gundogtest was imitated with helpers/judges, all meant as a training for dogs and handlers. This was the first time for Dylan to be
at a gundog workingday. 21 participants were entered. The workshop included 5 tests, each with double retrieves.
For the 8 participants in Dylan's group, mostly retrievers, the tests were a variety of Marks with a gunshot, Blinds with sending dogs in a line, Obedience and double Losts in a dense wood. A lovely opportunity for the dogs to get aquainted to a gundogtest. :-)
All 10 retrieves, were nicely delivered to me, by Dylan. I am very proud of him.After this, especially for the dogs warm and stretched day with a lot of impressions, it was wonderful for Dylan to be home again to relax and dream of this lovely day............
At the end of the day, certificates were given to the participants and a historical group photo was made......at Corona distance.
