Lily - FTCH Dakotagun Arwin
Lily was bred by ourselves out of FTAW Centrewalk Imp to FTCH Mallowdale Gun. Lily is a lovely stamp of a cocker spaniel has been an absolute delight to train and one of the easiest spaniels we have ever trained, so much so she was being shot over on a regular basis at 14 months old. She has bags of pace, fearless in cover and a very honest bitch.
Lily completed her first field trial on 2nd October 2014 which was a Open qualifier Cocker Spaniel stake for The Gamekeepers National Association. Although this was an open stake and Lily is a novice dog we had no reservations about running her. In this trial she gained a Certificate of Merit.
Lily then went onto win the Mid Norfolk Gundog Club, Novice A/V Spaniel Trial on the 2nd December 2014 at Livermere.
Lily then gained 1st place qualifying her for the 2016 Cocker Spaniel Championships at Dunira Estate, Perthshire.
Lily won her 2nd Open at the Dorset Working Spaniel Club on the 9th December 2016 making her a Field Trial Champion. This then qualified her for the 2017 Cocker Spaniel Championships at Abbeysteads Estate, Lancashire where she came away with 3rd place and guns choice.
