    We passed :D:D:D! I can't believe it. With a little bit of luck and a very fair examiner we did it!! I did go with the attitude of "oh well it will be an experience" and I think it paid off as I probably stayed more relaxed. Isolation was ok, no barking or whining and the stop (dog coming towards you) was bang on :). The worst bit was the questions at the end, I just went blank :rolleyes: and muddled my way through!

    The good news: The examiner is a gundog trainer, and after a chat we have arranged for a couple of us to go and have a lesson with him in a couple of weeks time and to see how we get on! So excited as I've been desperate to get back to gundog training, but just not found the right place or trainer.

    Well done! The KC Gold award looks pretty tough, especially the controlled isolation

    What a great team you are, congratulations. I've read up on your tests, they're way more difficult than our one level.
