According to the demands of the membership, the club holds training seminars and/or classes for both retrievers and spaniels. This year there will be training classes from the end of April to early September. The trainers are catering for novice to advanced dogs and the classes are limited to members only. So if you want to come join up now.
For spaniels this year there is a special Training Weekend with Ian Openshaw to be held on 13/14 April. We are also holding a walked-up FT Training day for Retrievers and Spaniels and is a must for all who trial, are about to trial or anybody who is just wondering what happens at a trial. Whilst the competing dogs will be invited there are plenty of opportunities for you to take the other essential roles for the day. For spaniels there will be a re-run of the highly successful and very popular which will be on Sunday 10 April 2011.
Every year the clubs is asked to provide demonstrations of gundog work at several of the major events in the county such as The Royal Cornwall Show and Stithians Fair. The club usually has a stand as well at each show where you can buy training equipment, chat to club members and even join the club!
Werrington Park Country Fair is held near Launceston every two years and the CFTS hosts Interclub Retriever and Spaniel Team Tests for all the local clubs. The last event held in 2012 and plans for the 2014 event are well under way.
The club also participates in several other events hosted by local clubs and have been very successful in previous years. The club also sends a team to the BASC Retriever Team Working tests at Sherborne Castle each year run over the International course.
