Introduction to Field Trials training days

We are running 2 Introduction to Field Trials training days for anyone that may be interested in field trials.

These days will be run for people that have not been to a field trial or have a limited knowledge of how field trials work but are interested or looking to take part in the future.

The days will cover,

  • What is a Field Trial
  • Completion of the Field Trial entry form and FTMS system
  • How the draw takes place
  • Explanation of the J regs
  • Practical demonstration of a Field Trial

We will be running 2 separate days at Abbotsham, Bideford.

On 10th August for the Retriever Trials with Nick Coates who is a KC approved ‘J’ regs instructor and ‘A’ panel judge.


On 11th August for the Spaniel Trials with Margaret Cox who is also a KC approved ‘J ‘ regs instructor and ‘A’ panel judge.

The days will start at 10.00. We will then go through the theory side of what is involved in a field trial and the ‘J’ regs.

After lunch we will head out into the fields/woodlands to have a demonstration of how a trial is run and then finish with a question-and-answer session.

The cost of the day will be £30.00 for members and £45.00 for non-members this will include a copy of the KC ‘J’ regs and an opportunity to run suitably trained dogs in a mock field trial.

The extra £15.00 will cover membership to allow you to take part in any club events.

Please bring your lunch, a chair and pen and paper.

If you or someone you know would be interested in joining us, please contact.
