Field Trials

Gundog Working Tests


Spaniels were the breed that inspired the formation of the Society and today we have a large and thriving spaniel membership. Springer, Cocker, and from time to time, AV events are organised. Whatever type of Spaniel you have you are sure to find opportunity with us. Training is provided by coaches well-known and experienced in the field trial world. To get involved, please call our Spaniel Field Trial Secretary or the Test Secretary.


Field Trials

Gundog Working Tests


Our Retriever section is very active and last year ran a full programme of Field Trials providing variety and opportunity for all. Our Gundog Working Test and Field Trial days have been set on some of the finest gundog venues to be found; ground in wonderful settings that test the dogs and their handlers. We have experienced trainers in our membership who organise training and will be pleased to help. To get involved, please give our Retriever Secretary a call.


Field Trials

Gundog Working Tests


With a section for the breeds that hunt, point and retrieve, we are one of the relatively few gundog societies in the region with a section specifically for HPR?s. We run Working Tests and Field Trials and have expert trainers who specialise in these breeds and are proud to host several events throughout the year. If you have one of these breeds and are looking for your HPR home or just a little help, then do please give our HPR Secretary a call.
