7th April 2024 - AV Spaniel Novice - NDNH - Open

Dove Valley Working Gundog Club held our AV Spaniel Novice, Novice Dog/Novice Handler and Open at Cubley by kind permission of the Honourable Mr David Legh, gratefully organised by Shane Wood.
The day started with a slight downpour of rain which was followed by intermittent showers all day.
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, Ian Bogacki and Mark Ball for giving up their day, giving encouraging words and helpful pointers for all, with fair and sporting test in the woodland.
Many thanks to our sponsors - Sporting Saint, Gundog Training Equipment and Twicebrewed Twines, for their generous donations of prizes.
A superb collection of £115 was raised through our raffle for the Alabama Rot Research Fund.
We also had a photographer with us today, 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!
