With both an open and novice test running simultaneously, it was a busy day for the judges with lots of dogs turning out for the first fixture of the Dove Valley calendar.
the day came to a climax with a run-off between the open winner Glanhowy Lark of Greenbrush with its handler Alastair ross, and novice winner Glenugies ruff Diamond with its handler John parr. the novice dog was victorious on the day.
the final novice spaniel test was held at the Osmaston estate, near Ashbourne. many congratulations must go to Derbyshire Daisy of Holsan and handler Scott bendikas for placing first.
