LRCA WORKING CERTIFICATE TRIALS

The LRCA held a successful one-day WC test (WC, WCI, and WCX) on Wednesday July 1, 2015, at Lake Wabamun, AB.

Many thanks to our judges, to ACHRA for the use of their property and to our volunteers without whom we could not have held this event and make it the success that it was.

Thank-you handlers and dogs for your support. We hope to see you again.

Many thanks to our judges, to the PPCLI Army Cadet Corps for providing gunners, to ACHRA for the use of their property, and to the volunteers without whom we could not have held this event and make this event the success that it was.

In 2016 the LRCA is excited to offer Club members assistance in training a Labrador to WC standard. Weekly training sessions will be conducted free of charge for all club members.  These sessions will take place during June and July, 2016, at Tami Marks property just east of Sherwood Park, every Friday evening.  These will not be hunting oriented sessions but will be specifically tailored to bring a dog who has never done any field work up to basic WC standard.  Dogs who already have their WC title but wish to advance to the WCI or WCX level will also be welcome, with the understanding that the emphasis of the sessions will be on the beginning dogs. More information about this will be forthcoming in the April-May 2016 time frame.  If you are interested in participating or have any questions about the WC program please email our Gun Dog Chair, Ken Nette knette@interbaun.com. Thank-you.
