Congratulations to the Wales International Gundog Retriever Team at The Game Fair

Congratulations the Wales International Gundog Retriever Team on their achievements at The Game Fair.

The Wales Retrievers walked away with the Northern Goldsmiths Retriever Team Trophy, which dates back to the first Game Fair International in 1978.

England were overall worthy winners with a total score of 1,090, followed closely by Ireland with a total of 1,086, Wales finished on 1,052 with Scotland on 1,003. 

Wales Captain, Alan Rees, came out as the first competitor to go over the track and established a formidable benchmark of 116 out of a maximum 120.

To add to the suspense, four dogs tied on 116, which resulted in a run off for second and third. For the first time during the competition the judges set a test using the full length of the arena for an unseen retrieve over three fences, into the woods, with no shot. Sadly, one dog failed, and the end result placed Les McLean of Scotland in second and Alan Rees in third.

Beverley Guthrie, Scotland

Thanks for the samples , my dogs are well behaved eaters but i was astounded to see them fighting to try to get to Baileys tripe to steal it.

I ordered the tripe from a local supplier and Hi/low and CP21 from your online shop and its been amazing the difference in them all. The girls are on the hi/low with a few kibbles of tripe to stop the stealing and Baileys doing really well on the tripe with no upset tummys  or loose bowels.

For an hour before meal times they would be walking the floor and running to their dish to try to get you to hurry but their new food seems to leave them fuller for longer and theyre not constantly scrounging.

Bailey is actually puting on a little weight with the tripe and looks much healthier. Hes always been scrawny no matter what we fed him and with his tum its been hard to keep weight on him

Thanks for your help. When i order next i will try the oil and treats you recommended!
