Dove Valley Gundog Club - Working Test at Chatsworth House 29th March 2015

Lily wins the Young Handler award at Chatsworth

A fabulous day at Chatsworth House despite the atrocious weather! The young handlers were thrown in with the 34 Novice entries and had to compete on the same level, with the same test elements.

From the 34 running, only 8 went through to the second round and were judged on a second run.

Lily took Charlie to a well deserved win. It was her first working test and I could visibly see just how nervous she was, but she kept her cool and pulled off a tidy retrieve on he second run, even though dog and handler had failed to mark the dummy! All good experience. A great thanks to Jean Gledhill for putting on a super day.

Well done to all.
