Once again WuffitMix are delighted to sponsor the Gundog events at the Chatsworth Country Fair. After a two year break due to covid, we are so happy this wonderful event is back on for all to enjoy!
In the same format as usual, the first day of Chatsworth Country Fair sees the “Special Open Gundog Working Test for AV Retriever.”
Judges this year were Sue Hales - Lowe and Alan Richardson. Chief Steward - John Yates
and Gundog organiser - Philip Smithies.
Gundog Commentator Steve Burns says, “24 dogs competed over a challenging undulating course of cut rides and 4 foot high bracken and a gentle flowing river. The day was dry with light winds which rapidly changed direction making it difficult for comptitors to get their dogs on the right side of the wind.”
