    Looking to View some Retriever Trials

    Apologies, I know this is deer dogs rather than retrievers, but I am hoping to watch a trial or two in the late spring. Any suggestions?

    My daughter is studying at Oxford, and we will be coming over on Holiday in late may and probably staying for a month. I train and trail Labradors here in the states, and am hoping to maybe find a trial or two to watch.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    Thanks for that clarification. In the states we can run tests all year long, and trials with pen-raised birds from Sept through March. Our tests use use freshly killed birds, and sometimes live (shackled) flyers. Still, I would love to see some tests. Brit Labs have a legendary status over here for there steadiness.
