Der­byshire springer wins Ken­nel club open spaniel gundog test at chatsworth

Shooting Gazette - - Gun Dogs -

A three-year-old english springer spaniel from Ash­bourne, Der­byshire, has won the Ken­nel Club open spaniel gundog work­ing test held at Chatsworth house, Der­byshire, by the gra­cious per­mis­sion of the Duke and Duchess of Devon­shire.

The judges were Mal­colm Tay­lor and Terry Frost. The event is kindly spon­sored by eu­kanuba.

Deep­fleet Deni of Moon­reed, owned and han­dled by Alas­tair ross, was awarded first place at the test which saw spaniels tested on hunt­ing, quar­ter­ing and re­triev­ing to hand.

Caro­line Kisko, the Ken­nel Club sec­re­tary, said: “english springers and cocker spaniels are both very at­ten­tive, in­tel­li­gent breeds, which lends well to their abil­ity to use their nat­u­ral work­ing in­stincts to per­form for their han­dlers in the field. Con­grat­u­la­tions to Alas­tair and Deni for their vic­tory against such tough com­pe­ti­tion. we wish them much con­tin­ued suc­cess in the fu­ture.”
