The first two rounds of the Chudleys Gundog Championship kick started at the Kelmarsh Country Show over the Easter Bank Holiday, welcoming handlers and their dogs to the popular Scurries and Working Test hoping to secure their places amongst the qualifiers at this year’s Grand Final.

As ever, this year’s Scurries consisted of Pick ‘n’ Mix, Duck Distraction, Short Fence, Long Retrieve, Up ‘n’ Over and the Novice Retrieve. The Working Test also challenged the gundogs working ability by re-enacting artificially simulated shooting day conditions.

Take a look at all the results from across the weekend below…

The next round of qualifiers in the Chudleys Gundog Championship will take place at the Broadlands Country Show over 5th and 6th May 2019. To get involved in all of the action, visit the Gundog Tent across the weekend and find out more about taking part. For more information visit
