This is ‘Purdey’ or ‘Purd’ to her friends, raised from Fen’s first litter owned, loved and presented by Anne Collen from Co. Dublin in Ireland has been undergoing training in many disciplines which are close to Annes heart such as Working Trials which include Tracking, Obedience and Agility.

At the end of November 2009 handled by Ger Phillpot Purdey was unveiled in the Show ring and completed her Irish Junior Champion status in March 2010, although lightly shown during these months up until August 2010 she went on to gain her new title of Ir Sh Ch Achouffe Fantome Jun Ch Celtic Junior Winner ’10.

From taking three Best UD Tracks in a row circa 2010 and four in the 2011 season Purdey won the Feltrim Fly Perpetual Medal for the most consistent tracking dog of the year with a 100% success rate moving her up to WD level for 2012.  During the summer months she went on to win Grade 1-5 Jumping at the Fingal Agility Show 2011 under Swedish Judge, Jorgen Sundwall and Grade 1-3 Jumping  in September 2012; so is it any wonder that during 2013 this talented team announce that the hard work and at times gruelling and frustrating training had paid off as Purdey’s new title became Ir Sh Ch Achouffe UDEx CDEx WDEx Jun Celtic Jnr Winner .. and 2015 got off to an even better start as Anne campaigns Purdey here in the UK with huge success as she becomes a little history maker yet again ….
