Ludo is our beautiful dark chocolate boy from show lines, he has correct conformation, excellent eye colour & an easy going biddable temperament , lives inside with his extended doggy family. He has superb DNA results & is clear from PRA, CNM , EIC, DM & HNPK. Ludo has made a promising start to his show career & has had some good results at both open & championship shows, he won ***Best of breed ***& **group 4 **at Minhead . He regularly goes to gundog training and is showing promise, being steady & willing to please. We attended a water training day organised by the United retriever club & another gundog training day held by the Yellow labrador club ( Chocs welcome!) , hethoughly enjoyed both & as he matures his natural working ability becomes more apparent . Ludo is proving all the hard work is paying of as he enjoys his first season on the shoot at Hilmarton (Wiltshire) he is keen but steady, a useful picking up dog. He has sucessfully picked pheasant , partridge , pigeon & duck . He is a strong athletic boy & is certainly fit for purpose . We will carry with his training throughout the coming months (some areas need improvement!)
We decided to spend this summer concentrating on the working side rather than the show ring. We entered Ludo into several working tests . His first at Clytha Park in N/D N/H where he achieved some super Scores. On his second test held at Combe Dulverton , he thrilled me ...
Since moving to Cornwall,we have found a wonderful gundog training,& also picked up several times on a shoot in North Cornwall . We have also joined Duchy Working Gundog Club & look forward to joining them on training events during the summer .
