We handle and teach all our dogs in hunting skills.
Since we start with Flatcoated Retriever back on 1996.

tests and go as beater and dog handler on hunts.

Over the years Ralf leads many hunting dog training courses for the local hunting dog club.
In present time we are meeting only with dogs breed from our Kennel and near friends to train dogs.
We have and still organize hunting tests for the German Retriever Club, Local Hunting Clubs and the JGHV. In 2016 we have organized the Flatcoated Retriever Trophy a dualporpose competion only for FCR's with Working Tests and Show. The biggest competion for our breed yet, with more than 160 dogs each day.
We have hold Puppy, Junior and Adult hunting training and so long as we and the handlers of the dogs will have fun by that part of our hobby, we´ll do that furthermore.
Agility is a special interest from my wife Conny and Leá. It ´s a hobby and a nice working for the dogs, but not a main part of our dog work.
But after time goes by and Lea is dead, the main view of our activities are showing, huntingtraining and hunt and dummywork.
We started obdience training, with all of our dogs, as soon as we get them from our breeders. We think it´s important for the dogs and for their life with us and all the other parts of the life.
We don´t start on competions, because there are no competions in our country. Here you have some tests and nomore, but it´s the groundstock for other workingparts, like hunting, dummywork and agility.
Another interested part is training hunting tasks with dummys. Conny and Coco train for and start at workingtests. I normally use it to train the dogs during the week, because I´ll not take game by every training. It is easy to try and you don´t need much area. On the other way in my opinion, it is only one part to train the dogs. There real abilities, will be shown only with real game under real hunting conditions. So a it´s not sure that a dummy trained dog will take cold or/and warm game during a hunting session.
Ralf participated with Smilla, Randy, ScoobyDoo, Pelle, Pippa, Svea and most sucessful with Stina on Workingtest. Biggest Sucess was the 1st place with CIE CIB CH Beautyfield's Amy Winehouse at the Flatcoated Mästre Kuppet in Västeros/SWE 2013.
