About WT

Rules in English: Working Test rules (pdf) A Working Test (WT) is a competition for the purpose of assessing, without game being shot, the working abilities of the various breeds of Retrievers. Canvas dummies are used. The retriever is the shooting man’s indispensable help during a shooting day. The aim of an IWT is to select the best dogs having good temperament, good marking, good use of nose and showing initiative. Handling is to be considered as an indispensable complement to these qualities, keeping the dog steady while walking at heel or at the stand, willing to obey the handler’s instructions when sent for game, which it has not been able to mark.
