Petteri Hirvonen, Finland

Thank you for inviting me to judge the first official Retrievers Working Test held in Estonia.

I have been an active hunter for more than 35 years, and it has been 29 years since our family got our first labrador retriever. Today I am a WT judge, I run my dogs in trials and tests, and go picking up with them actively. But hunting and shooting are still my main passions.

At the moment we have two Golden Retrievers and a Cocker Spaniel in our family. My oldest Golden FI KVA-FT FI KVA Weljesten Geronimo Au is one of the most successful working Goldens ever in Finland. We have represented Finland around Europe in e.g. IWT, Nordic championships, CLA Eurochallenge, and Skinners International Retriever World Cup. He is also the first ever, and at the moment only Finnish Golden Retriever Field Trial champion, and winner of several WT.

I am excited and honored to be offered a chance to judge this historical event. I hope to see a lot of good dog work and wish everybody good luck and success!

Gabor Deak, Hungary

I have dogs since 1986. I started with guard dogs, I was a trainer for 8 years. I worked not only with hobby dog owners, but for special forces too.

I got my first labrador in 2011 – Blackthorn Kalea „Zorka”. We run on many working tests and field trials on open level. With my life partner, Niki, we established our kennel called Huntingsource. We made up an International Field Trial Champion , Blackthorn Hiram, who also was an ÖRC champion. Zorka’s best FT result is res.CACIT. Zorka and Hiram have several WT victories and trophies in open class too.

Our dogs also were members of the Hungarian team on the Skinner’s World Cup in 2016, and we hope, we can start in 2017 too. I participated on the ICC in 2016. We kept 4 pups from our Huntingsource “A” litter, so we train them and of course we run with them in Hungary and in Austria. We compete with 6 dogs.

I am a hunter, so I use our dogs in the hunting season also. I have experience with not only the ’theory’ of the gundog training but the daily use too. We participate on 20-30 shooting days (pigeon, pheasant, hare, duck….) per season.
