“Yesterday was the Puppy (under 18 months), Veteran (over 7) and young handlers (under 18) working test. The weather was fine with just a couple of short sharp showers. The presentation was made by the Patron of the Leicestershire Gundog Society – Admiral Sir James Perowne.
The winning puppy is owned by Ian Glover and is only 11 months old. He got 95 out of 100 and did a wonderful job.
The Young Handler winner was Rosie Chattaway with her yellow dog Consgrove Harry.
The Veteran was won by Mrs Val Anderton with her 9 year old dog – scoring 97 out of 100 – a fantastic job.
All the award top prize winners were presented with a bag of CSJ Champ! and all award winners were given a ‘Winners Pack’ – the feedback has been great.
The next competition is on the 4th August to be held in Collyweston, nearr Stamford which will be a ‘Mock Field Trial’ limited to 30 entries.
Thank you so much for your sponsorship, all the competitors really appreciate your contribution.” Jane Sizer, Working Test Secretary of the Leicestershire Gundog Society
