5th May 2024 - Novice and Open AV Spaniel

Dove Valley Working Gundog Club held our AV Spaniel Novice and Open at Bagots Park by kind permission of Mr David Dale and Sam Sayce.
The day started with the sun shinging which continued all day and all competitors enjoyed!
We would like to thank all our helpers of the day, without whom, we wouldn't be able to provide these events and opportunities for handlers and their dogs.
Thank you to our judges, Bob Lowe and Victoria West for giving up their time, giving encouraging words and helpful pointers for all, with fair and sporting test across the day.
Many thanks to our sponsors - Sporting Saint, Gundog Training Equipment, Skinners and Twicebrewed Twines, for their generous donations of prizes.
A superb collection of £126.50 was raised through our raffle for the Alabama Rot Research Fund.
We also had a photographer with us again, taking shots throughout the day - should any competitors wish to get some photos you'll be able to find her on facebook - Donna Jarvis Pet Photography. The photos will be available in the next couple of days!
