During this time she trained two fied trial champions: FTCh Pinnock Chiffon of Tagabea and FTCh Tagabea Zulu Too, and competed at the UK Retriever Championships 4 times. Paula is currently a committee member of the UK Labrador Retriever Club and a UK Kennel Club A panel Retriever Field Trial Judge. Paula enjoys competitions, judging and also hunting with her dogs.

Paula is very much looking forward to visiting the Czech Republic and wishes good luck to all competitors and also good luck to the organizers, without whom these competitions could not take place.

Steve Cullis
I have always had labradors and after I started actively hunting I found that as a shooter I absolutely needed a working dog. I was so enthralled with training my dogs that I put hunting and shooting on the backburner. I focused more and more on Hunting Dog Working Tests and later on Field Trials until it became my lifelong passion.

I have been involved in the training of working Labradors and competitions for over 25 years. During that time I have been fortunate enough to win Field Trials with labradors. I have also bred and trained Field Trial champions and competed in the UK Retriever Championship.Having recently retired from being the owner and operator of a large and very active kennel, I now spend most of my time with my wife Paula training our own dogs. I am currently a Kennel Club Retriever Panel A Judge, and acommittee member of the International Gundog League (IGL) and the UK Labrador Retriever Club. I am also now a member of the UK Kennel Club Field Trials Council and UK Kennel Club Field Trials Liaison Council.

We asked our judges three questions:

RS: What is the key success at a WT competition?
Judges: The key success at a WT competition is that you are happy with what your dog has achieved and you go home pleased with your day. Hopefully you will also take home some good ideas for the future training of your dog.

RS: What is the best advice you would give someone training for WT?
Judges: The best advice we would give to someone training for a WT is to make sure the basics are all there, such as healwork, steadiness, and set up for the retrieve.

RS: What is the key competence for a dog when doing WT?
Judges: Once the dog is sent it is vital that the dog is under control and handles well in all situations.
