Team Coldfeet have hit the ground running this season with my 6 dog getting 3 first placings at the first 3 races and Karen’s 4 dog getting 2 first placings. One did not finish due to an accident.
The teams are proving that the change to CP30 has really hit the spot on keeping the dogs healthy and building on their energy performance.
Team Coldfeet would like to give a big thank you to CSJ for their continuing support and hope the success continues throughout this seasons busy race calendar.

The Arfon Working Gundog Club held a 16 dog Novice AV Spaniel Stake on the 17th November 2015 at the Glasfryn Shoot, Pwllheli, Gwynedd by kind permission of Mr Gwilym Jones.
The judges were Mr Barry A Jones & Mr Jason Toon. The weather forecast for once was correct, the day started with a steady drizzle developing to a downpour which cleared in the afternoon when the gales arrived.
It was a very difficult day for all and I would like to thank our host, Gwilym Jones for his efforts to find game for the trial to proceed, what self respecting pheasant would sit in a wet marsh when they had nice warm woods to stay in. The trial progressed steadily with the rain testing everyone’s waterproofs and the guns shooting well in the difficult conditions.
I would like to thank our host, the judges, the guns, the helpers and the competitors for their resolve to make the day a success, I would also thank our sponsors CSJ Specialist Canine Feeds and Gary McCarthy of Gundog Gear for their continued support.
