The Labrador Retriever Club of Manitoba and The River City Labrador Enthusiast held a very successful Working Certificate test weekend July 15 & 16, 2017.  The weather was perfect, and the running grounds were ideal.

Thank you to all of the club members from both clubs that came out and helped with set up, take down, lunch, morning coffee, support and running their dogs.  Thank you goes out to Kevin and Gail of Win-toba Kennels for allowing us to use their land to run the test.  And thank you goes out to our judges over the two days.  We really appreciate your time and expertise.

Congratulations to the handlers and their dogs who were successful.  Well done!
