The South of England Gundog Club held a working test for HPRs on Sunday 14 September at Rivers Farm West Sussex.
It was good to see representatives from 8 different HPR breeds entered with 6 featuring in the results. The weather was kind to us but scenting conditions were difficult with little or no breeze, but the dogs applied themselves well and it was a most enjoyable day. Thanks to all the people who gave up their day to come and help, it is always very much appreciated.
