I was a single handed, full time game keeper for 12 years covering an estate over 8000 acres and have been training gundogs for over 25 years.
I am an assessor for the Kennel club Working Gundog Certificate, this allows me to assess a Gundogs suitability for the shooting field and to also assess the quality of gundog handlers wishing to become an assessor, I have also judged field trials in the UK. I have been very successful in working tests and have had placing’s at both walked up and driven field trials.
I have had the honour of running my Chesapeake’s for both Great Britain and England on 2 occasions and being top dog at the competition in 2005 at Belvoir Castle CLA Game fair when running for team GB. (Foto: Kurt Schumacher)
