THE EURO CHALLENGE
Teams travel from Europe to compete against England on the Friday of The Game Fair. The competition takes place over a variety of tricky retrieves. Each team consists of three handlers and three dogs. The dogs must comprise of three different retriever breeds: Labrador retriever, Golden Retriever, Flat Coated Retriever, Chesapeake Bay Retriever, Curly Coated Retriever, Irish Water Spaniel or Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever.
The test will simulate the many and varied situations that arise when shooting and picking up with dogs including walking up in line, standing at a drive and retrieving from cover, over fences and from water. It is interesting to see how the various types of retriever deal with the same exercise.

If you want to see the top gundogs from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales go head-to-head in a purpose-built arena complete with authentic cover crop, jumps and water, then make sure you catch the Home International Team competition. As UK’s foremost team event, this hotly contested competition always produces intense rivalry between the top dog handlers from each country.
