Kennel Club Gundog Working Tests

Unfortunately due to the current situation the Kennel Club Gundog Working Test, which was due to be held at Capesthorne Hall will no longer be going ahead. We are very disappointed to be cancelling the event and would like to thank all those that had been involved in the organisation of the event so far.


The Kennel Club Gundog Working Tests and associated events will take place at Capesthorne Hall from 10th June to 14th June inclusive by the gracious permission of the Bromley-Davenport family.

The timetable for events is:

Field Trial Training Day for Retrievers, Spaniels and HPRs

The day is designed for those who wish to progress to compete in Gundog Working Tests and Field Trials and with top trainers on hand to assist you on your way.

International Retriever Team Event

Teams of 4 from countries across Europe, including Team GB, compete for the prestigious Kennel Club International Retriever Team Challenge Cup. Now in its 10th year, the event is firmly established in the calendar attracting teams from over 10 countries. Spectators are most welcome.

Saturday and Sunday
Gundog Working Tests

The Kennel Club Gundog Working Tests are held in high regard by competitors for the varied and challenging nature of the tests. Together with the superb surroundings and terrain offered by the Capesthorne setting, it is easy to understand the attraction for the very best handlers and dogs in the country to prove themselves. With nearly 200 dogs comprising Retrievers, Spaniels and HPR breeds competing over the 2 days of competition, and with a special event for Young Handlers, this is the landmark event of the calendar.
