Excellent Testimonial from Breeders and Trainers Achouffe Gundogs

Our sincere thanks to Julie and Mark of Achouffe Gundogs for the following feedback and photo received this morning.

“Although we have fed our dogs Chapel Farm Premium dog food for quite a number of years now, three year old Rio, Achouffe Provocateur, was from our first Slovakian Rough Haired Pointer litter to be exclusively raised on your food from the, at the time, newly available Puppy/Junior range right through to Original 20 in the close season.
She was Top Import Registered Puppy all Import and Rare Breeds in 2016 and Top SRHP 2016.
Rio has been out during the 2018/19 shooting season working on two Premier Shoots in Lincolnshire with impressive success. We are often told how our dogs always look in peak condition and work happily and tirelessly.
We are convinced that power and strength comes from what is fed, and that Chapel Farm is more than premium, as the results speak for themselves.”

As well as working with dogs Julie and Mark also find time to write for a Free Online HPR Magazine which is well worth a look. Find it here https://slovakianroughhairedpointer.com/issue/
