Lurchers had the reputation of being poachers' dogs and "untrained killers” but have now become recognised as respected members of the field sports fraternity. They are often used for pest control, mostly on rabbits and are a purpose-bred crossbreed. Very biddable and making excellent pets they quite happy to live alongside other animals in the family home, providing they have been properly trained. This very popular event is great fun to watch.
 
Anyone can enter their Lurcher/Longdog for the Simulated Coursing; in fact any breed is welcome. Entry is at the Main Ring near the Control Bus from 9.15am

The display this year are from Martin Harris and Martin Love. The Martins have over 50 years of experience between them in handling and training gundogs. They are renowned for both their innovative approach and modern ideas. Their training is encapsulated in the following quote:

“Tell me and I’ll forget.

Show me and I may remember.

Involve me and I’ll understand.”

Using their own dogs they will endeavour to break down each aspect of training and take you through the stages step by step.

The Martins will be available during the day to give free gundog training advice on their stand near the Countryside Ring and they are also doing a demonstration in the Countryside Ring at 2.40pm.

Lake Ring

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!).

A hugely popular event, rounding off an action-packed day in the Main Ring. A series of heats leads to the grand final. This is highly entertaining as the Terriers are often distracted by each other and the “Hare” becomes secondary, frequently leading to chaos! Anyone can enter their Terrier today.
