Aims of The Society

The Midland Gundog Society aims to encourage the training of retrievers in the field. To this end it organizes Novice and Open (qualifying) Field Trials, Working Tests and training classes for A.V. Retrievers. Training classes are mainly held at Packington Park, near Meriden, Warwickshire.

Coronavirus 18/3/2020


It is with regret that due to the recent Government and KC guidelines on the Covid-19 virus, Midland Gundog Society have decided to CANCEL the following events:


  • Novice Training day Saturday 28th March

  • J Regs Seminar on Sunday 29th March

  • Club Training Evenings on Wednesdays at Packington 

  • Novice & Open Working Test 17th May 2020



Kennel Club guidelines state: 

‘The safety and security of competitors, spectators, volunteers and staff at Kennel Club events is of paramount importance. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Kennel Club has taken the decision with regret to recommend strongly that Clubs and Societies cancel forthcoming events over the next three months, i.e. until the end of June.’


With this in mind we will review the situation again towards the end of June as regards to our remaining Working Tests


Midland Gundog Society deeply apologise for any disappointment caused and hope that all of you, our valued members, are supportive of our decision in line with the government and KC guidelines.
