One of the largest clubs in the UK, Dove Valley Working Gundog Club has been successfully running for over 25 years. Chudleys are very pleased to support the Field Trials and Working Tests and our bags of feed will be awarded to the winners.
On Sunday 22nd April the Dove Valley Gundog club returned to the stunning surroundings of Chatsworth House, Derbyshire in a close-knit and highly anticipated encounter. The Novice A/V Spaniel Test and a Young Handlers A/V Spaniel Test started early in the woodlands with a variety of cover, giving the dogs chance to show the judges how they performed over a period of two runs.
“Chatsworth is a very popular venue! We had 33 entries on the day, two of which were young handlers.”- Jane Burton - Dove Valley Spaniel Test Secretary.
Below are the full results of the tests held at Chatsworth House on Sunday 22nd April 2018.
