An exciting championship for the next generation. This unique championship aims to identify the UK’s best Junior gundog handlers.
Derived from the Chudleys Gundog Championship, this unique competition is for the next generation of gundog scurry and working test handlers.
Young, dynamic and full of enthusiasm to match, we have seen some very promising youngsters taking part in our gundog events over the years. At Countryman Fairs, we believe it is time to recognise this potential. The Chudleys Junior Gundog Championship is a competition that delivers on every level for our next generation of gundog scurry and working test handlers.
The Chudleys Junior Gundog Championship will test the handling skills of gundog scurry and working test handlers under the age of 16. The first qualifying event takes place at the Kelmarsh Country Show over the 16th & 17th April 2017.
