In what was an extremely tense finale of the Chudleys Gundog Championship, Lee Barlow and his dog Tilly were crowned the Chudleys Gundog Champion for 2017, repeating his success in the 2016 competition.
The winning duo went home with a cheque for £2,000, rosette and an engraved trophy. In all, more than 5,000 dogs entered the competition at one of Countryman Fairs’ five regional heats in a bid to qualify for a place in the final.
Countryman Fairs Gundog Events coordinator, Laura Bacon, was thrilled with the overall high standard of entries. She added: “Congratulations to Lee and Tilly, an unbeatable duo and worthy winners. It was superb to see so many new faces entering and having a go this year – I hope they will all be back next year!”
