May we welcome you to The Bristol and West Working Gundog Society website and hope you enjoy your visit. The club exists to promote and encourage the training of all types of gundogs for working in the field and to organise and run Working Gundog Field Trials and Working Gundog Tests.


Thou sayest thou art as weary as a dog
As angry, sick and hungry as a dog
As dull and melancholy as a dog
As lazy, sleepy, idle as a dog
But why dost thou compare thee to a dog
In that for which all men despise a dog

I will compare thee better to a dog
Thou art as fair and comely as a dog
Thou art as true and honest as a dog
Thou art as kind and liberal as a dog
Thou art as wise and valiant as a dog

..... Sir John Davies, written in 1594
