Pick ‘n’ Mix: The perfect picking up set-up… has your dog got what it takes?
The Pick ‘n’ Mix is designed to test your dog’s ability to choose from a selection of retrieves. This scurry relies on the perfect picking up scenario, with several birds that have already been shot lying in the undergrowth ready for your dog to retrieve. As always there is a twist, with one of these blind dummies also a bonus dummy, characterised by its smaller size.
Before your dog takes on the challenge, two more birds are then shot, with your dog required to pick up just one of these seen dummies and just one of the four blind retrieves. Should your dog be clever enough to pick the bonus dummy, your running time will be halved, opening this scurry to lots of different handlers and their dogs.
In this game, you won’t be disqualified should your dog pick both the two seen dummies and the one blind retrieve. However, if the smaller dummy is picked on this occasion you will not collect the bonus.
Great fun and highly competitive, Pick ‘n’ Mix will give you and your dog the chance to show off your quality training, and of course be in with a chance of qualifying for the Chudleys Gundog Championship Grand Final too.
