The Arfon Working Gundog Club held an AV Retriever test on Sunday 29th May 2016 at Bodrida Farm, Brynsiencyn, Anglesey by kind permission of Mr & Mrs Peter Rogers.
Judges were Mr Phillip J Smithies, Dr Nicola Reynolds and Mrs Jackie A Owen.
The weather was warm and sunny and the ground was testing.
We would like to thank our hosts, the judges, competitors and especially the helpers without whom we would be unable to hold our tests. Thanks also to the continued support of our sponsors CSJ Specialist Canine Feeds and Gary McCarthy of Gundog Gear.
