About Me

A gundog natural instinct is to retrieve. Retrieving Trials provide a perfect avenue for these dogs to express their natural abilities, have fun and exercise. Our sport simulates hunting conditions where the dogs ability to retrieve is tested over various terrain and conditions commonly found in hunting scenarios. The dogs retrieve Dokken Dead Fowl Trainers (artificial game) from anything from dams or creeks to thick marsh or sparse paddocks. We strive to make our competitions a friendly and social environment where our competitors can not only compete whilst having fun with their canine companions, but also enjoy the comradery and friendships that develop with people of similar interests.

Farewell ‘TESSA’

Proudly owned by Denis and Kylie

25/6/2012 – 13/10/2015

‘A True Champion’

All members of UFR feel the loss of this little dog as each of us has been through these low periods after the passing of our companion animals – but the loss of one so young  and so very talented,  is especially tragic.

We congratulate Denis, Kylie and ‘Tessa’ on achieving so much in the time they shared. What a delight this team was to watch at our retrieving trials.

We all sympathise with Denis and Kylie and hope that it will only be a short period of time before we can once again enjoy their comradery at our UFR events.  

To Denis and Kylie – our hope is that you take time to remember what you shared with your wonderful  ‘Tessa’, grieve for your loss and then move forward strengthened by these experiences  and supported by your  friends.

Denis and Kylie have asked that their thanks and appreciation are passed on to UFR Members for the love and support shown during the last 6 weeks.

Time is needed now for Denis and Kylie to grieve.  Just know that your friends are thinking of you.
