The Canadian Kennel Club has a WC - WCI - WCX. And Shala got her WCI last night! It is a land double, land honour, water double (all off leash). It was our first non-junior test, and so first with no leash. She really did well - nailed all her marks and her control was really nice. She hates posing for pics, so she gets all serious looking. I added the closest thing I got to the smile at the end! :smile2:

Wool hoo you go girls! You two have come such a long way. I still grin every time I think of your little girl sitting in my utility near the bag that had had the bird in it, she was so thrilled by the smell!

Congratulation!!


Since I'm not familiar with CKC rules, could you answer a couple questions?
When your dog is off leash, is it from the holding blind to the line, or just take off the leash at the line?
On the honor are you able to say anything to the dog, or do you have to be completely quiet once you say "sit"?
What is the distance for the marks on land and water?

Hi there - sure!

When your dog is off leash, is it from the holding blind to the line, or just take off the leash at the line? It is from the holding blind, which is up to 25 yards from the line. You are being judged from the time you leave the last blind. The dog has to be at a heel, under control.

On the honor are you able to say anything to the dog, or do you have to be completely quiet once you say "sit"? You can say "sit, no bird," (or whatever you say to indicate you won't be running) when you first get over to the honour box/line. You can say it again if you want while the working dog is walking up to the line - but once the working dog is on the line, you are not allowed to say anything more.

What is the distance for the marks on land and water? From the rules:
Land Double - the angle between the falls shall be
not less than 90 degrees.The birds will land in cover
and not be conspicuous from the line.The falls shall
be approximately 68.6 meters (75 yards) long in moderate to moderately heavy cover.
Water Double - the angle between the falls shall not
be less than 90 degrees.The birds will land with a definite
and visible splash 36.6 to 45.7 meters (40 to 50
yards) from the line. One bird shall land in cover.
Decoys are to be used, singly anchored and centrally

located between the 2 marks and visible from the line.
