Deliveries During the Christmas Period

Chapel Farm has received an email from dispatch regarding deliveries during the Christmas period.

They suggest that the last order date for delivery before the Christmas break will be Monday the 18th of December. However, just to be on the safe side may I suggest ordering earlier if possible as couriers do become very busy.

Orders placed between the 18th and midday on the 22nd will continue to be processed and it is possible that some will be delivered before Christmas.

Orders placed after mid-day on the 22nd will be processed when the office re-opens on the 3rd of January.

David and the Team would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your custom and offer you our Very Best Wishes for Christmas and the New year.

Such a Good Photo

Buccleuch Chapel Farm Kennels Assistant Ashlyn has been spending time helping with the training of young Labrador Buccleuch Harmony, “Jetta”. On this day she was involved with water retrieves. There happened to be a photographer present who was taking pictures of the dogs in action including this one of Jetta launching herself with some focus and determination.

It is such a good photo we felt we had to share.

Fabulous Results for Kathy and Peanut

Chapel Farm sponsored handler Kathy Spacey had a great time at Blackpool Championship Show with her youngster “Peanut” who was awarded: Best Puppy, Best Junior and Reserve Best Dog in Breed! He was then in the final 6 in the puppy group (all best hound pups) then Junior group 4. Kathy was delighted with the results and rightly so, and also delighted with how well he behaved.

Well done Kathy and Peanut, many congratulations and Best Wishes for the next.

Say Hello to our Newest Stockist

We are delighted to welcome Kirsten Rennie to the Chapel Farm Stockist Team and asked what prompted her to join the team.

“Auchentore Gundogs and The Working Puppy Company are based in beautiful Aberdeenshire not far from Inverurie. We currently have a team of 8 Labs and 2 Springers that are worked throughout the shooting season as well as competing with the labs in Field Trials and Working Tests. The Working Puppy Company was started in 2012 with the vision of providing balanced, modern gundog training methods to all abilities and breeds of dogs and their handlers. 

We have been delighted with the change to Chapel Farm dog food, there is something to suit everyone in the kennel from pups through to retirees. We look forward to recommending it to clients and beyond”.
