The Arfon Working Gundog Club held a A V Retriever Test at Bodrida Farm, Brynsiencyn, Anglesey on the 17th August 2019 by kind permission of the Rogers family. The judges were Mr Phil Smithies, Mr Peter Thompson and Scott Marland.
The weather was sunny and windy with the wind strengthening as the day went on.
I would like to thank our hosts, the judges,and the helpers and dummy throwers for helping make the day a success, also to our sponsors CSJ Specialist Canine Feeds and Gary McCarthy of Gundog Gear. Thanks to the competitors for supporting us and congratulations to all in the awards.
