Report on the Open Cold Game Working Test at Fenhouses on Sunday 16th September 2018. Twenty-four dogs competed in the test, in a first-class field of sugar beet at Fenhouses, by kind permission of the Laird Family.
Our judges for the day were Brian Barker and Phil Smithies, the Chief Steward was Keith Parker.

With a steady breeze, the scenting was excellent and the first round gave each dog the possibility of two marks. Each dog in the second round had a crossing marked retrieve, after which the judges made a cut to ten dogs. These dogs had two retrieves, each of which may have been a straight mark, a crossing mark or a blind behind.

After lunch four dogs went through to a run off in stubble, a 50m blind over a deep dyke.
