Our aim is to advance and encourage the training, working and competition of all working minority Retriever breeds. Such as the Curly Coated Retriever, Irish Water Spaniel, Flat Coated Retriever, Chesapeake Bay Retriever & the Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever.
Our aim is to organise Field Trials, Gundog Working Tests, Working Gundog Certificate Days, training days and any other type of Field events authorised by the Kennel Club....
We are extremely passionate about the minority breeds we represent and our Members are encouraged and expected to health test all breeding stock following the required standard of the Kennel Club Assured Breeder Scheme.
The Club also encourages members to breed dogs that are "fit for Purpose". Members should also consider these factors prior to breeding -• Working ability• Temperament• Breed Type and Characteristics• Health Screening• Genetic Diversity (Co-efficient of inbreeding)

Throughout the year we team up with our Minority Breed Retrievers and attend demonstrations and breed appreciation pavilions at the Heritage Fairs & other country shows. We set up breed pens in a pavilion that are decorated with breed info and ensure knowledgeable owners are on hand to give the correct advice and information on their individual breeds ensuring the public can be correctly educated on our unique working gundogs. We are an all encompassing club and invite minority Spaniels, HPR'S & Setters to these events where appropriate. If you are interested in attending one of these events with your dog and would like to take part in the fun, please complete the attached pavilion form and email it back to Judy at firstname.lastname@example.org
