The hunting farm «Dubakinskoe» – almost seventy thousand hectares of hunting grounds, extending to the east of the Tver region. This lake Verestovo, to which tens of thousands flock of ducks nesting on its shores and in the waters which lap bream and perch, pike and roach… This fabulous forests, wild, far from civilization, which is sometimes so bored, often unconsciously, residents of large cities… Here wandering moose and wild boar, black grouse in the bushes rustle and grouse, fox glide silently stalking Whites… Hunter’s Dream! On the territory of the hunting farm is the best pheasant farm in Russia and organized a unique British hunting for this type of game. For the rest the tired hunters on the territory of the hunting farm offers a comfortable base, where we had a great time and where we prepare delicious meals on the best traditions of hunting cuisine.

Participants of the festival was lucky enough to hunt ducks from drums and approach, to take part in the hunt for pheasants.
In conclusion, I want to note that in the breeding work needs to be done emphasis on the psyche of dogs and its main component – shutter speed, so necessary for retriever breeds. Problems fear of shots, inadequate behavior and stiffness remain the main grip today.
The festival has also shown that the existing provisional rules retrievers to find and feed bat game and duck do not match the realities of the day. This conclusion is confirmed by our English colleague, and those who started with me hunting retrievers movement in Russia 15 years ago. They are members of the expert committees championships V. Tsarev, V. Vdovin, A. M.
Such a significant event as the festival «Russian Retrievers 2010»In hunting dog breeding among retrievers in our country has ever had.
Joint carrying out hunting events and show exhibitions will continue the work to further popularize Retriever as a hunting dog, and strengthen the culture of dialogue breeders.
