The Wiltshire Working Gundog Society was formed in 1991 with the aim, which remains true today, of developing and improving gundog handling by
- Promoting and encouraging the training of gundogs for work in the field by holding gundog training classes and seminars
- Organising Field Trials and Gundog Working Tests
- Encouraging high standards in breeding sound, pure-bred gundogs, free from hereditary faults
In the summer months the Society organises gundog Training Classes and Working Tests for both Retrievers and Spaniels.
Although the Training Classes are open to all breeds of gundog, the Working Tests and Field Trials are only open to dogs which are registered with the Kennel Club.
Committee members can be contacted via email, see the contact page for details
