Gundog Handlers

Philippa Williams

Levenghyl Labradors and Castlemans Goldens.

Philippa has had a lifetime of involvement with dogs and started to compete at the age of seven!

In the 2009 IGL Retriever Championships the Levenghyl line had some fantastic results and for their mother, F.T.Ch Glenpatrick Eve ... six dogs out of the same bitch qualified to run and three of them were in the awards:

  • 3rd – F.T.Ch Levenghyl Peacock (owned/handled by Jamie Bettinson)
  • 4th – F.T.Ch Levenghyl Silvercloud (owned/handled by Sandra Halstead)
  • Diploma – F.T.Ch Levenghyl Sundancer (owned/handled by Steve Richardson)

Philippa says her most memorable success was winning third place in the IGL Championships in 2001.

She has also had another huge success in having the Top Winning Golden in Working Test and Field Trials in 2003.

FTCH Tweedshot Thistle of Levenghyl - December 2011

Phillipa wrote to CSJ recently to announce that Mango (Tweedshot Thistle of Levenghyl) is now a Field Trial Champion….at the tender age of two and three quarters!

She went on to say, "She held her own beautifully at The International Gundog Championships in December – getting through to 3rd and final day was awarded a Diploma of Merit and she was the youngest to compete.”

After Christmas another win in Devon made Mango up to Field Trial Champion. Pippa says of Mango, "she is very eye catching as she has great drive, is very fast, has lots of style and is always so happy to be out working. Because of this she is well liked in the field and has twice got ‘guns choice’…..she is a dream to handle and we are all very proud of her.”

Her canine involvement encompasses several ‘fields' and includes Agility, Flyball and Residential holidays.

Philippa currently owns 15 Labradors, 4 Golden Retrievers and 1 Cocker Spaniel.

What Philippa says about CSJ - "Excellent advise on natural supplements, skin conditions.”

Customers' Views

Ruth Smith, Essex

I would just like to say a huge thank you.

Skye is now on the herbs and your food 'No Grainer'I have found a stockiest not far from me where i picked up a bag of food from the other Sunday.

We have now been on the no grainer for two weeks slowly introduced it with no ill affect.  

Skye stools are solid and the best they have ever been and they don't smell, she has no pain or discomfort. 

She is just a happy little dog now and loves your food.

I never thought I would get her right and that it was something that i would just have to have lived with but not any more. 

I can not say how happy I am with your product and your services. You have been so helpful and fantasic.

Thank you so very much.
