SIWSC Novice AV Retriever 12 Dog Stake

Bright and early on Monday 9th January I headed off to Chillington Hall for the Sporting Irish Water Spaniel Club’s Novice Any Variety Retriever 12 Dog Stakes.

Mr Giffard and his guns shot very well and were exceptionally patient between drives as the dogs were tested. There were a couple of Irish Water Spaniels, a Flatcoat Retriever with the rest of the field being made up of Labradors.

It is getting near the end of the season now and many of these dogs have been working very hard over the last few months, you can see from the pictures that they are not couch potato dogs.
