open to all Retriever breeds with FCI pedigree

Dear friends of the working Retrievers,

welcome to our web page with details about our international working test in June.

In order to simplify your planning, you will find important information on this event, which we are holding on the 2th of June 2018. This will be updated if required over the next few months.

- The working test will take place on our training grounds in Lohmar near Cologne.          

- There will be three classes; beginners, advanced  and open.

- The event will be based on the FCI „Regulations for international workingtests for Retrievers“ valid since the 1st of July 2007

As we have been using the website of our Belgian retriever friends successfully over the past few years for competitors to register, this year we continue to do so and you can register via as usual.

Here a few guidlines:

  1. If you have any queries or requests that are not clear from this description, please contact our chief steward Klaus Grond.
  2.  Only dogs with FCI recognised pedigrees are allowed to take part in the competition
  3. There are no specific requirements for entry in the competition, but we do request that your dog does have the required experience in the class for which you register.
  4. Entry for the competition will cost EUR 50,-. Please do not pay until requested.
  5. In case there are more entries for the competition than there are places availiable, places will be allocated by a draw. The draw will also determine sequence of the waiting list.
  6. Members of the RTT will automatically be allocated a place before the draw is made.
  7. Please ensure that when registering that the names of handler and dog as well as the email address are written correctly. The Database is the basis for all documents (catalogue and certificates). Competitors which have submitted an incorrect email will not be able to receive any notifications from us. In this case, these competitors will then forfeit into the end of the waiting list.
  8. Registration will close on the 11th of May 2018. Shortly after, competitors that were selected in the draw will be notified and requested to transfer the starting fees to our account. If we have not received the fees by the 18th of May 2018, the competitors from the waiting list will be notified accordingly.
  9. Registration for the competition will commit you to payment if you are selected from the draw. If you have paid but need to cancel for whatever reason, and have not done so by the 18th of May 2018 you will not be entitled to a refund of your fees.
  10. Registration for our working test is already possible via In case this is the first time that you are taking part in such an event, you will need to first register to use this site. (Registration is free via the website, and your password will be sent to you per email). After you get confirmation of a successful registration, you can then register for our events. The advantage here is that you can then administer your details yourself. Any changes or cancellations made after the end of registration will not be sent to us, and you will need to contact our chief steward directly.
  11. It is possible (assuming you are selected in the draw) to register more than one dog for this event – but not in different classes. Each dog will be drawn seperately.
  12. Competitors that have registered their dogs for another competition taking place on the same day as ours will be automtically removed from out starting list.
  13. We are not able to accept registration of the day of the event.

We look forward to being able to welcome you on the 2th Juni 2018!

Yours, the RTT
