Event: Ken­nel Club young han­dlers gundog work­ing test Venue: Chatsworth Judges: Sheila Kuban, Mick Newsam, Mal­colm Th­waites, Jen­nifer Hay and Neale Satch­well Spon­sors: Eukanuba

Seven­teen-year-old Caitlin Can­non from New­port Pag­nell in Buck­ing­hamshire won the Ken­nel Club Young Han­dlers Gundog Work­ing Test at Chatsworth House, held by the gra­cious per­mis­sion of the Duke and Duchess of Devon­shire. Caitlin han­dled Flo, a labrador re­triever owned by her mother Natalie Can­non, to win first place at the test.

Caitlin said: “Thank you to the Duke and Duchess of Devon­shire, the Ken­nel Club and the judges for let­ting us have a fab day and for get­ting young han­dlers in­volved in the sport”.

Caro­line Kisko, Ken­nel Club sec­re­tary, said: “We send con­grat­u­la­tions to Caitlin on her suc­cess with Flo. They made a great team. Work­ing with gun­dogs in the field re­quires skill, ded­i­ca­tion and many hours of hard work, so it is clear Caitlin has the qual­i­ties re­quired to do well in this sport. We wish her all the best for the fu­ture.”
