The Arfon Working Gundog Club held their Spring AV Retriever test at Plas Llanddyfnan, Talwrn, Anglesey by kind permission of Mr Paul Hogarth and keeper Mr Steve Cadman
There were over 60 dogs entered with classes for Puppies, Novice and Open and we would like to thank our judges Mr David Field, Mr Mike Allen, Mrs Suzanne Bailye and Mr Wesley Travis for giving up their time and for dealing with the large number of entries in good time.
We would like to thank our hosts for allowing us to use the wonderful ground which allowed us to use a variety of different terrain including water, woodland and grassland to test the dogs. Thanks to the helpers without whom no tests could be held. Thanks for the continued support of our sponsors CSJ Specialist Canine Feeds and Gary McCarthy of Gundog Gear.
We would also like to thank Victoria Stanley for presenting us with a new trophy for the best scoring dog on the day.
