Event: Ken­nel Club open HPR gundog work­ing test Venue: Chatsworth House Judges: Ed­die Hales and rita Howard Spon­sors: Eukanuba

A Ger­man short­haired pointer bitch from Nor­wich won the Ken­nel Club open hunt, point and re­trieve (HPR) gundog work­ing test at Chatsworth House, Der­byshire, held by per­mis­sion of the Duke and Duchess of Devon­shire.

Jerzi, owned and han­dled by Lu­cie Hus­tler, was awarded first place at the test. Lu­cie said: “Win­ning the HPR open at Chatsworth with home­bred Jerzi (Ay­tee Ju­niper) was a great hon­our and it con­tin­ues what has been a mar­vel­lous 2016/17 sea­son for her, which in­cluded open field trial wins in the UK and Ire­land and hold­ing the Ir­ish Ken­nel Club HPR Dog of the Year ti­tle for 2016. She is such a gen­uine dog that al­ways gives 110 per cent and she hunted very hard in that heat so I was de­lighted for her. A big thank you to ev­ery­one in­volved in or­gan­is­ing what was a super week­end.”

Caro­line Kisko, Ken­nel Club sec­re­tary, said: “Con­grat­u­la­tions to Lu­cie and Jerzi on their suc­cess. They clearly are a win­ning team and high­light the ver­sa­til­ity of the pop­u­lar HPR breeds.”
