The Euro Challenge – 2021 Game Fair

Rumours that the Retriever breeds able to compete in this year’s Euros would be limited to Labradors and Goldens appear to be premature!

This from the Game Fair website:

Teams travel from Europe to compete against England on the Friday of The Game Fair. The competition takes place over a variety of tricky retrieves. Each team consists of three handlers and three dogs. The dogs must comprise of three different retriever breeds: Labrador retriever, Golden Retriever, Flat Coated Retriever, Chesapeake Bay Retriever, Curly Coated Retriever, Irish Water Spaniel or Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever.

The test will simulate the many and varied situations that arise when shooting and picking up with dogs including walking up in line, standing at a drive and retrieving from cover, over fences and from water. It is interesting to see how the various types of retriever deal with the same exercise.

2021 Teams competing for The Euro Challenge title include: England, Ireland, Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Germany, Switzerland and France.
