The Southern Area of the Flatcoated Retriever Society embarked on a new venture in conjunction with the Southern Golden Retriever Society and ran Novice and Novice Dog Novice Handler Working Tests for both breeds.  The Flatcoated Society hosted the day at Penshurst in Kent, by kind permission of Lord De L’Isle.
Many thanks to Dick Pettett for his organisation, the judges Jim Gale and Maddie Burr, the stewards and to the dummy throwers Andy Snow and David Hutchison known to both breeds who all kindly gave up their time for all to have an enjoyable day running their dogs in the nice weather.
There was a good entry and almost an even number of flatcoats and goldens

Novice Dog Novice Handler Results
Due to a number of handlers who had to pull out on the day it was not possible to make any awards.
Philip Goodman’s Boresile Arabella Allen for Larksburn was presented with a dummy for the highest scorer but they were not consistent enough to be placed.
