    It is great fun and fantastic when you have good scores as the marking is extremely details with each exercise and PART of the exercised marked as:

    not existing
    insufficient
    sufficient
    good
    very good
    excellent

    as well as the score for each section and overall score.

    Courage is also marked as either "existing" or "pronounced"

    Before you can compete your dog must have passed a BH (Begleithunde) to demonstrate you have control over your dog, it is similar to the Gold Good Citizen Test with obedience and is marked in two sections, obedience and then the traffic test. If you do not pass the first section you cannot enter the second.

    There is now a theory test as well which has to be sat by all those hanlders who have not passed a BH previously with another dog.

    Jago... yes, Sika... no. Jago is a lab and he goes wildfowling with my husband during the season, he does what he is born to do, retrieving! He loves it :) Sika is a HWV so should do HPR but she is very nervy and not confident with the gun yet. She may improve as she matures and hopefully gains more confidence. In all honesty though, she'd be just as happy as a pet. She might be a good beaters dog as she's great at pointing and flushing but nowhere near with the retrieving!

    The labs are all picking up dogs, as are some of the springers, the others are used for beating. One of the Dachshunds is used for vermin, but remarkably for dogging in as well. The other is in training for stalking

    Hello David - this is a very old thread and I am not sure if anyone from it is around any more, but I see you have started a new thread so will go have a look at it now. :)

    I see that you are enthusiastic but do be careful that you don't do too much to soon with your puppy. Her growth plates will not be fully developed yet - I would be careful with running and jumping for a few months yet.
    Free running on grass is fine though.
