Welcome to the Website of

Dove Valley Working Gundog Club.

Up-dated August 28th 2020.


All our Field Trials for the coming season have been cancelled.

Please click on "Field Trials" above and then "Schedules and Entry Forms" to see a statement from our Chairman.


After twenty-six years in post, Guy Radford has retired as General Secretary of the Club. It would be difficult to overstate Guy's contribution as he has been at the forefront in taking the club from small beginnings to the respected club it is today, in fact it would be fair to say his name has become synonymous with Dove Valley Working Gundog Club. Guy is also retiring from his roles as Retriever and Spaniel Field Trial Secretaries. I am delighted to say that despite stepping down from the committee, he has agreed to help and advise his successors in any way that he can as his many years of experience are invaluable. It is the committee's intention to formally thank Guy and to mark his retirement as soon as a suitable occasion is possible.

We respectfully request that all participants at our Training Classes, Working Tests and Field Trials observe the correct dress code as befits the tradition of our sport.

All enquiries with regard to Working Tests, Field Trials and Training Classes to be directed to Lewis Butler (Secretary) email - generalsecretary@dovevalleygundogs.com Telephone 07947 492883.
