Included in your booking:
To help you make the most of this in-person workshop, included with your booking is a replay of the online Working Test: A Beginner's Guide masterclass
. This covers everything you need to know from how to find out where the tests are held, to what standard your dog needs to be for each level, the J Reg's (rule book), and what to wear. This masterclass is a video replay which you can watch at any time. You will be able to pause, rewind and rewatch the video to make the most of the information provided.Important note on the working test:
Please note the workshops are breed specific to correspond with the working tests. The working tests are organised and run independently by the Mid Wales Working Gundog Society. As such, booking the Completely Gundogs workshop does not include your entry to, or guarantee you a run in, the working test. You will have to arrange, and pay for, your entry separately by sending a postal entry to the Mid Wales Working Gundog Society
. You do not have to enter your dog in the working test to benefit from the workshop, in this instance it is recommended that you volunteer as a helper at the event instead.Important note on shot:
we often use starter pistols, bang boxes and dummy launchers. Shot will also be used at the working test. As such, dogs attending should be happy and confident with the sound of shot. If you have not introduced your dog to shot before, or if you know your dog is gun shy or nervous about the sound of shot, please mention this to me when you contact me to discuss if the workshop will be suitable.Total cost:
The total cost of the two day workshop is £210 per handler. Onsite accommodation is available with prices from £50 to £120 per night. The workshops do not include entry to the working test.
