SEGS run a number of Working Tests during the Summer
months for Puppies, Novice and Open standard dogs with
each one testing the level of training of the dogs.


These popular Tests are set up to replicate, in so far as is
possible, the type of situation which dog and handler may experience
on a typical shooting day, although no live game is used.

ENTRY FEE FOR ALL WORKING TESTS IS £8 (SEGS MEMBERS ONLY)

ALL TESTS ARE UNLIMITED ENTRY
EXCEPT
‘OPEN WORKING TEST run on Field Trial Lines’ on Sunday 19th August
which will be LIMITED TO 30 OPEN DOGS

LATE ENTRIES will be accepted if the Test is undersubscribed
but the entry fee will be double ie £16

Please note that we will be accepting Working Test entries by FTMS


Postal entries must be received the day before FTMS entries
so that details can be added to FTMS for the draw
