A CHALLENGE involving some of the best gundog handlers in the world is being held at Cowdray on Saturday, April 30 in support of the mental health charity Mind.

Organised by Cowdray’s experienced and award-winning gundog trainer Jason Mayhew, the day comprises a team competition event in which highly-trained dogs will be working with their experienced owners to complete several controlled challenges and demonstrations, with each team being scored throughout the day.

Highly-experienced teams from Switzerland and Belgium as well as all over the UK will complete several controlled challenges and demonstrations. Trophies will then be awarded at the end of the event.

Jason said: “I am delighted to be organising the Cowdray Gundog Challenge to raise awareness and money for Mind, a mental health charity that does an amazing job helping those in need.

“We are keen for as many spectators as possible to come and watch this fantastic competition where highly-skilled gundogs work with their trainers to show outstanding obedience and discipline.

“Gundog training is an ideal way to keep your dog fit and mentally stimulated, doing what he is bred to do.”

The day runs from 9.30am to 4.30pm, starting at Benbow Pond in the morning before moving on to the causeway in front of the Cowdray Ruins. There will be a prize giving in The Walled Garden at the end of the day.

Spectators are welcome, with a suggested ticket donation to charity of either £3, £5 or £10.
