The Arfon Working Gundog Club held a Working Test for AV Retrievers on the 24th April 2016 at the Flagstaff Quarry, Penmon, Anglesey by kind permission of Sir Richard and Lady Williams-Bulkeley.
The judges were Mike Allen, Kevin Brady, Barry Cooper and Gary McCarthy. The ground was testing but fair with the weather sunny but with a cold wind, there was a good entry of over 60 dogs and thanks must go to the judges, helpers and competitors who ensured the day progressed smoothly with everything completed just after 4 pm. Thanks also to our hosts, and sponsors CSJ Specialist Canine Feeds and Gary McCarthy of Gundog Gear.
