The popular Chudleys Gundog Championship will begin at the Kelmarsh Country Show over the Easter bank holiday weekend on the 16th – 17th April.
As one of the most highly anticipated competitions throughout the championship events, it is sure to attract hundreds of handlers and their gundogs eager to claim the winning title.
Chudleys Gundog Championship is the only competition of its kind. Its goal is to discover the most talented gundogs and their handlers to award the deserving winner with the championship title.
To compete in the championships action all you need to do is turn up and sign up.
Re-entries are also permitted in the event for anyone who would like a second chance at claiming their place. You can enter both the gundog scurries and working test, but you can only qualify once in any year, and your first qualification counts regardless of the class. Please ensure your dog is available to run in the grand final at the Midland Game Fair on 17th September before attempting qualification, as there can be no substitutions!
Competitors and spectators can look forward to a return of the popular scurries including Up ‘n’ Over, Long Retrieve, Short Fence, Partridge Pen and Pick ‘n’ Mix and the challenging Working Test. The qualifiers from the Kelmarsh Country Show will then go on to battle it out with other finalists to be crowned the new victorious winner at the Midland Game Fair held at Weston Park on September 16th – 17th 2017.
