"K" Litter Getting Down to Business - "JUNO" THE SEARCH DOG

A wonderful achievement this weekend for Aytee Kalico better known as “Juno” who has passed out as a Search and Rescue Dog and from now on is qualified to assist Norfolk Constabulary as she is on the list of Lowland Air Scent Search and Rescue Dogs. Handler Ian Danks of the RAF has completed a year of basic training followed by a year of Search and Rescue Training and we are very proud that together they have achieved this high level of work. Ian says of Juno, “she is an amazing family member, and an instrumental asset the county now has at its disposal.” We say WELL DONE JUNO !! GO GIRL !!

QUINTESSENTIAL QUIDENHAM

A truly amazing walkup day today with some crack shooting over a great gang of dogs. Thanks to Sara with Barley and Rosa, Hari with Myrtle and our own Jerzi and wonderful Dora who discovered' ‘ Woodcock Central’ on the Quidenham Estate giving us some of the best sport possible. Great memories for the last week of the season. Massive thanks to Philip Thorrold for such brilliant ground and Nick Elsdon of Anglia Sporting for setting up another great day..

BRILLIANT WALK UP

A fantastic sunny day walking up with friends over salt marshes, reed beds, arable farmland and through woods, seeing every type of game imaginable. Fantastic work from the guns and dogs and thanks to Nick Elsdon of Anglia Sporting for setting up another great day.

YAY !

Karat came away with a First at the N&SHPRFT Club’s Novice Trial at Acle today, pointing a pair of woodcock and then completing an HPR on a wily cockbird. It was a great result for a dog that has been a handful to say the least. I daren’t say we are getting there, but I think we might be. Thanks to everyone involved and well done to the other award winners. It was a great day in the gallery with friends……and what do you know, she won the Aytee Cup !

NEW YEAR SURPRISE

Well done to Aytee owner Hari Lampart and Myrtle, on your lovely article in the New Year edition of Shooting Times. Lovely pics, we would have put you on the front cover! Go girls …. wishing you lots of luck for 2019 🙂

BONNIE TRIP NORTH

A great 2 days in the Scottish Borders away trialling ended with our 3 entered dogs all going to water. The wonderful grounds at the new KC venue at Emblehope and the HGS Open Trial at Mindrum gave Aytee dogs a chance to strut their stuff and they all came home with a card. Thanks to judges, guns, the organising teams and of course the lovely competitors. Well done to all the winners and especially to our young Karat who really nailed her bird at Emblehope’s novice trial in difficult conditions, enjoying her first lively runner !

Quintana's at Quidenham

A wonderfully sunny day of rough shooting for visiting guns on the Quidenham estate kept Aytee dogs busy working alongside Quintana GSP’s. Woods, roots, rape, white grass and water meadows gave endless sport until dark. Huge thanks to Nick Elsdon (Anglia Sporting Agency) for organising and to the guns on their trip from Switzerland and we wish Philip Thorrold and family continued success now managing the shoot on the beautiful estate that is Quidenham.
