AV Spaniel Spring Working Test.
Held at Stapleton, Shrewsbury by kind permission of Mr Kevan & Mrs Joy Fox.
Both tests were well supported at this excellent new venue. It was held in a large wood with thick ground cover of brambles and fallen trees, testing the hunting ability of the Springers, Cockers and Clumbers to the maximum.The weather was good, dry and minimal wind.
Thank you to our judges Mr Kevin Powell, and Mr Lee Cooper, who were very sympathetic and helpful in their comments to all competitors.
