Cotswold gundog people with a national reputation

By Dale le Vack.

ARLENE and Philip White are well known in the world of driven game shooting, breeding, and judging gundogs. Their work over more than 30 years earned them a national reputation from their Cotswold home.

Now retired, Arlene keeps ‘Meg’ and ‘Prim’, two Labrador bitches. She takes them twice a week to Ragley, near Alcester, and Guiting, near Cheltenham. Philip enjoys loading for Guns often on separate shoots.

The Whites were married in the 1980s. They were trainers, dog handlers, breeders and ‘A’ panel judges. For decades they worked for and alongside the upper echelons of the landed gentry, often titled people – many of whom they knew personally.

Last year they attended the 90th birthday of the Queen at Windsor Castle at a private shoot and trial – followed by tea in the cricket pavilion which was attended by the Queen and family members.
