Chapel Farm Dog Food Bag Changes

Chapel Farm is part of Buccleuch Estates Ltd which has undergone a re-branding exercise. The previous Logo representing Buccleuch Estates features on the reverse of the Chapel Farm dog food bags. We are working to replace the old logo with the new “Stags Image” shown and had hoped to be able to change all bags at the same time. However for various reasons including higher sales than predicted, we find that we have run out of the one for Performance 24 rather sooner than expected and are packaging temporarily in a clear bag with coloured label. The contents remain the same; it is only the packaging that is currently changed.

Happy Boy Desmond Smiles for the Camera

Thanks to Chapel Farm sponsored Agility Handler Jennifer Hart for sending in this picture of her very happy looking youngster Desmond following his win at the weekend at Platinum Dog Show. Desmond enjoyed a clear round and won by a healthy two second margin.

Additional congratulations to Jennifer who also found time to manage a second place with her other dog Izzy in Grade 6 Jumping.

Well done all three and good luck with future competitions.

Marvellous Performance by Melissa and Lottie at Scone Show

Chapel Farm sponsored Agility Handler Melissa competed with Lottie at the Kingdom of Fife Agility Show held at Scone Palace. Things didn’t go as well as hoped on the Saturday but the Championship Class on the Sunday was a different story. A starting line-up of 45 saw 9 qualify for the final including Melissa and Lottie who achieved one of only 4 double clear rounds. Happy to simply get through to the final, Melissa and Lottie again managed a clear round and at the end of the competition were announced as Reserve Champions which is a tremendous performance given how new they are to Grade 7.

All at Chapel Farm are delighted for Melissa and Lottie on this marvellous result and offer all best wishes for future events.
Thanks also to Melissa for the photos, we have included the one of Lottie on her own as in all the times she has appeared before, we have never seen both ears up.
