The test was held on an extensive bracken bank with lots of natural game scent which was perfect for testing the hunting of all the dogs. Weather was also kind with cool but dry conditions and a light breeze.

Once again, a big thank you to our sponsors Skinners, especially Laura Peakman who provided the Certificates and Dog food vouchers for 1st, 2nd & 3rd in both novice and open tests. Also all the people who helped make  the day go so smoothly.

The raffle raised a great £69 for our chosen charity this year “Therapy Dogs”.
