The following criteria are guidelines to help decide which class would be most suitable.

They do need to be able to walk to heel on lead, sit and stay for a short time, have a recall and be able to do a simple retrieve.


LOWER NOVICE:  Aimed at Novice dog Novice handler or those not yet ready to run in Novice tests. Also for members who just want a well behaved dog in the shooting field.


NOVICE: This class is for those who wish to run in Novice tests.


OPEN: For dogs and handlers who have a high level of the basics.  We will work on progress through a wide range of scenarios that you may encounter at tests or out in the field.


  • Your spaniel heelwork is not expected to be extremely precise but the dog must be clearly under control.

  • The dog should hunt remaining under close control. 

  • The dog must recall promptly and once seated be steady to the ”thrown“ dummy.

  • The dog must have experienced and be confident with the sound of shot and working in the presence of other dogs.
