Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Secretary, said: “We are proud to be supporting Field Trials Team GB as they make their second trip to Denmark to compete in the competition.  Both the handlers and dogs will be taking part alongside world class competition and we wish the best of luck as they showcase the remarkable talent of our gundogs and handlers.”

The World Championship sees dogs run in braces (as a pair) and they are run for  15 minutes under the judges who will assess the dogs' work and award points according to the quality of the hunting, pointing and retrieving. A water retrieve must also be demonstrated in order to be eligible for an award.

The St. Hubert Cup sees dogs run singly with their handler, who is judged on their relationship with the dog, the training of the dog, their shooting skill and understanding of gun safety, their understanding and ability to hunt the ground respectfully and thoroughly, their choice of cartridges and handling of the shotgun. All dogs must also complete a water retrieve to be eligible for an award.

Field Trials Team GB is sponsored by Skinner’s Dog Food, Dick White Referrals and the Kennel Club.
