New Member of the Sponsored Handler Team

Say hello to the newest member of the Chapel Farm Team of Sponsored Handlers, Katie Lines who has been competing in Agility since 2012. Her first Cocker Spaniel, Archie, competed from Grade 1, novice, right through to grade 7 Championship Level, competing in National and European Championships.

Magnificent Result at the IGL Retriever Championship

The IGL Retriever Championship was held here on Queensberry Estate on the 27th, 28th and 29th of November where 68 dogs had qualified to compete. At the close of the competition Buccleuch Gundog Manager David Lisett and Buccleuch Bowhill of Sandringham, “Harris” were announced as winners.

Harris was bred here at the Buccleuch Chapel Farm Kennels, his mother having been the first Buccleuch bred Labrador to win the IGL Championship in 2017.

Well done to everyone who qualified for this year’s Championships and to all the award winners.

A Memorable Season For Sarah Miles

Many Congratulations to Chapel Farm Sponsored Handler Sarah Miles who had a fantastic 2023 season.

First of all with Texacali Praline of Meonvalley, in the photo, (Gracie, who is now FTCh subject to KC approval) who qualified for the Championship early in the season where they were awarded a magnificent fourth place. Gracie is fed on Chapel Farm and Sarah says that “Gracie is especially fond of the new Lamb” and that “her condition never wavered and she arrived at the Championship in excellent condition”.

Also competing was Gracie’s son Meonvalley Woodfield (Idris). “After being awarded three thirds in three trials he then won taking him from Novice to Open   He ran in one 2 day open and was one of two dogs left but sadly failed on his last retrieve. However he was awarded Guns Choice so still covered himself in glory. I am looking forward to running him next year. He has been fed on Chapel Farm since he was born. Starting with the Puppy food which I recommend strongly”.

Thanks very much for taking the time to write Sarah and also for the excellent photo, good luck in 2024.

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.
