Anglesey Gundog International Has a New Sponsor and a New Name

[Chichester] Fur Feather and Fin are very honoured to announce they have become the new sponsor for the Anglesey Gundog International.  This gundog field trials competition, held in Anglesey Wales every year, was first started over 25 years ago.  The location and terrain, complete with a lake that was added, makes for an ideal spot and has become a favourite for many gundog handlers that have had the opportunity to compete here.
