Chris and Lin Iddon of Epwell Gundogs have been working and occasionally breeding spaniels for beating and picking up in the shooting field for over 14 years.
“Cockers are our real favourites but we do have a Sprocker and a Springer that each come with their own idiosyncrasies and skills. More recently we have added Labradors to our team (yep, it’s true, they really are born half-trained!).
Chris had his first working Labrador in 1971, but his working career put paid to any real gundog work until 2002.
In the meantime, we have owned and bred German Shepherds for over 30 years, taking them all-over Europe as we moved around with work. To this day there are always one or two around the house.
Since moving to Oxfordshire in 2001 we have been hooked by the country sports bug and now have 10 dogs of our own and a regular stream of lodgers, either from friends locally or occasional rescue and re-homing cases.
Our dogs are fed on Chapel Farm Premium Dog Food. We previously used a far more expensive, well known dry food and have been delighted with the results that Chapel Farm has brought to the team. Their general condition and energy levels have been excellent during the working season (we have completed over 70 days in the 2016/7 season).
We are pleased to have been appointed as a stockist for Chapel Farm Premium Dog Food in and around North Oxfordshire. You can collect your order direct from us, or we can deliver free of charge to clients in a 10-mile radius of Epwell.

We are delighted to welcome Chris and Lin to the Chapel Farm Team and wish them every success.
