Gundog Handlers

Bill Leonard

Bill started trialling in 1995 when, as he says, “The dog work started taking over from the shooting”.

He is a member of the Scotland Gundog Team (sponsored by CSJ Specialist Canine Feeds) at the CLA Game Fair 2007.

The affix ‘Clanicker’ is made up from the first three letters of Bill’s daughters’ names – CLAire, NICola and KERry.

The kennel currently stands at eight Springer Spaniels and one Labrador.

Most memorable success?

Bill says, “It will always be making up my first Field Trial Champion – F.T.Ch Broomfield Pleat.”

Other successes have been making up two Champions and winning several novice and open trials. He has also competed in the British Championship six times, the Irish Championship once and gained a few awards along the way.

“I think CSJ offers tremendous quality along with outstanding value for money, and without ‘Rocket Fuel’ my FTCh Clarburgh Golden Girl would simply be Clarburgh Golden Girl!!!”

Customers' Views

It all seemed too good to be true...

Dear Ceri,

We have a 7 year old Cocker Spaniel and a 1 Year old Chocolate Labrodor who had been brought up and fed on one of the "well" known premium ranges of food and we thought by using it we were helping them, however the spiralling cost of the brand caused us to look for something a little more affordable when we discovered CSJ on the internet.

It all seemed too good to be true - high quality for an affordable price with the backing of numerous breeders. Buying our first couple of sacks we decided to give it a go and see what happened.

Four sacks on and we are amazed at the difference and have only noticed the problems we had now we haven't got them. Our Cocker now looks and acts like she did when she was a puppy and her recent litter is thriving on Natural Little Champ!

Moreover the Labrador is just transformed: On the "beloved" old food she suffered from loose stools, flatulence that would clear a room in seconds, a scurfy coat and was so so hard to control. Since changing to CSJ Natural Champ she has normal stools, no flatulence a shiny coat and is just so relaxed (other than the usual puppy exuberance of course!) that so many people have commented on how well behaved she is "for a Chocolate". My wife was getting ready to try and re-home her but now she can stay.

Thanks so much...

Gavin Hall
