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!!!”

Truffle has 9 little Champs!

Truffle has 9 little Champs!

"Truffle has been fed solely on Champ throughout her pregnancy and like my other whippets had the occasional meal of tripe & chicken wings.

As you can see she had a wonderful litter of 9 healthy puppies and she is in fantastic condition. The puppies are about to be weaned onto soaked Little Champ in about 3 weeks"
