Do I always have to wait for the judge to send me for each retrieve in working tests?
GUNDOG WORKING TESTS
When you go under the judge, he or she will explain the test and what is required.

However, when the test is a double retrieve, the judge may say that once your dog has retrieved the first dummy you may send the dog for the second in your own time.
This means that you do not have to wait for a second order from the judge after the first has been delivered.
