Run by Jill Gardner, owner of Foxcote Golden Retrievers. "I have successfully trained, worked and competed my Goldens for 35 years. I’m a Kennel Club B panel field trial judge also judging working tests including minor breeds. I routinely provide reward based, supportive 1:1s and workshop training. Through this, I’ve gained a wide range of experience of many gundog breeds and the training challenges that can arise. Above all I love helping people to have the best fun and rewarding times with their dogs!"

Game Fairs and Country Shows

Breed Representation

We have the opportunity to represent the breed at a number of game fairs / country shows. For those of you that have seen discover dogs then it is a similar format: a pen for the dogs and an area to display information. There is also usually at least one parade a day in a ring. As with Discover Dogs it is the opportunity for us to share our breed with the general public. It is not necessary for you to work your dogs as most visitors are more interested in dogs as pets.
Entry and car park passes are provide and if you wish to camp or caravan then a pitch will be provided.
If you have been a member of the club for at least two years and want more info then please e-mail Nigel Spraggins
