Welcome to the FCI International Working Test for Retrievers 2024!

The FCI IWT is considered the official European championship on dummies for Retrievers.

Qualified national teams from all over Europe compete at the highest level!

The event is organized by a different European country every year in accordance with the international FCI rules. In 2024, the IWT will be held in Germany for the sixth time, hosted and organized by the German Retriever Club (DRC e.V.).


Each country can send 3 official national teams. Provided there are still free places available after the registration deadline for the national teams, free teams from all participating countries can enter.

If necessary, a draw will be held after the registration deadline for free teams.

Further info and test results will be published on this website and on our Facebook page.
