The Chudleys Gundog Championship returned to the Highclere Country Show over the Bank Holiday weekend, welcoming handlers and their dogs to the popular southern event to try and grab a place in the highly sort after Chudleys Gundog Championship Grand Final.
Taking place in the remarkable grounds of Highclere Castle, the Chudleys Gundog Championship is truly one of a kind. Sponsored by Chudleys Dog Food, the Championship has a range of exciting scurries and a Working Test that will really put competitors through their paces. From the Up ‘n’ Over, Long Retrieve, Short Fence, Duck Distraction and Pick ‘n’ Mix, the Scurries are a great place to pit gundogs against the clock. For those wanting to try a timed, simulated shoot, the Working Test offered the perfect challenge.
Qualifiers from the weekend’s Highclere Country Show will go head to head with other finalists at the Midland Game Fair’s Grand Final in September, with the titleholder awarded £2,000 cash, an engraved trophy and rosette.
Have you got what it takes? The next qualifying rounds in the Chudleys Gundog Championship will take place at the Lowther Show over 10th & 11th August 2019. To get involved in all of the action this season, just turn up and sign up, it really is that simple!
