18th-22th of September 2018:

Dual purpose Gailey! We went to France with Gailey. Gailey participated in a 4-days gundog workshop and at a shoot, around a beautiful, authentic Lodge with great hospitality for dogs and owners, in Enfonvelle. Gailey met - for the first time - warm game during the shoot. Very special to have had this opportunity, as in the Netherlands it is almost impossible to work with warm game in case one is not a hunter. Cold game never has been a problem for her.
Gailey made fantastic marks and retrieves and - although heavy terrain - the big distances were no problem. 3 Retrieves of pheasant cocks, straight into hand!

De Heen: Gailey participated in the Beet clinic, organised by the Gundog trainingclass of the Zwarte Goud. Heavy terrain and long distances. A shoot was stimulated. Participating dogs had to walk up and stay steady. Gailey did well. Gailey retrieved 2 mallards (cold game) and a dummy through the Beets, and further away from the field, laying behind the Beets.

4 adult IWS were involved, as well as 2 pups of almost 5- and almost 6 months old.
Bognaneilean Pheasant's-Eye, Gailey and Bognaneilean Star Fish, Dylan took part also. The goal was to show that the breed can do nice,
quick and driven gundog work. There were enthusiastic reactions afterwards, so the team did the breed proud.

sporty day. For Gailey it was the first time she participated in the OWT, in Novice. She didn't gain a certificate this day unfortunately, but showed nice work. Little puppy Uisce, her daughter (Bognaneilean Sea Fennel), attended the grounds to support her mother Gailey. :-)

Judges: Mr. N. Varney en mrs. D. Walls-Duffin.
Gailey (Bognaneilean Pheasant’s-Eye) was entered in Unclassified and in Novice.

Despite the warm and hot day,  Gailey gained high scores in both classes. A.o. 3 x 20 points. (20 points are the highst scores).
Unfortunately also 1 zero with a double retrieve  in Unclassified as well as in Novice. This part of the test was a marked retrieve and a blind.   
It was too hot in the field for the dogs  to go on hunting and Gailey had to stop also.  
In the 4 classes, there was only 1 placement. Congrats to winner.
