My name is Simon Fowler and I train gundogs very much in my spare time!
I have been around dogs, particularly gun gundogs for most of my life.
My interest in working tests and then trials started when I began training a Hungarian Vizsla with Philippa Williams from Dogs for Life. I soon purchased a Golden Retriever called Tully and we went on to have a lot of fun combined with some success too. Tully won two trials, a Novice AV and breed All Aged as well as winning a car in the Countryman Fairs Gundog competition!
For various reasons I haven’t really been competing for the last few years, but it is my intention to do so going forwards. At present I don’t have dog for trailing and tests but am trying to sort this out in the next few months, watch this space!
