The competition simulates the requirement of a dog to mark a bird that has been shot and to retrieve the bird speedily to hand. Two dummies are to be retrieved. Each retrieve is timed and the times added together to give the total score. It is open to any variety of dog and has in the past been won by a sheepdog and by a lurcher! Competitors may re-enter to try and improve on their time. There are generous daily prizes for Open, and Junior (aged 16 or under) entrants and a trophy for the fastest time over the three days. Full rules available at the Scurry.
