A fun race in the Orangery Pond between some of the more unusual breeds of gun dogs. All of those taking part are used for water work on driven shoots, duck ponds or wildfowling. Two dogs from each breed will race each other against the clock in a simulated set of water retrieves from the Orangery Pond. This is a great opportunity to see a real mix of working gundogs compete against each other. Taking part today are Chesapeake Bay Retrievers, Curly Coated Retrievers, Flat Coat Retrievers, Golden Retrievers, Irish Water Spaniels, Labrador Retrievers and Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers.
Always drawing a large crowd, this event will have the canine competitors lined up to meet you for 15 minutes beforehand (and afterwards, but you may well get wet!).
