G2 – This will be looking at off-lead heelwork, stays, basic hunting for hunting breeds, steadiness, hand delivery, memory retrieves and directed retrieves.

G3 – This will be looking at proofing off-lead heelwork, stays and retrieves, more challenging hunting and retrieving exercises and introducing shot.

G4/5 – This will be looking at building from G3 work.  This may need to be split into Hunting breeds and Retrievers depending on numbers.  There will be shot.
