After becoming a member of a field trial society and attending training sessions, you will be ready to enter a gundog working test or field trial.

Competitors taking part in any Kennel Club licensed event must familiarise themselves with the Field Trial J Regulations beforehand (regulation amendments as of 1 January can be found in the back of this booklet).

Learn more about all the awards you can achieve.

Gundog working tests (GWTs)

Gundog working tests (GWTs) are competitions which, by artificially simulating shooting day conditions, seek to assess the working abilities of the various breeds of gundog without game being shot.

Gundog working tests are run for any of the three sub-groups of gundog recognised by The Kennel Club as detailed below:

  • Retrievers 
  • sporting Spaniels 
  • breeds which hunt, point and retrieve

The following classes of competition are recognised by The Kennel Club:

  • Open: open to all dogs of a specified breed or breeds, although preference may be given to dogs which have gained a place or Certificate of Merit at a field trial, been placed 1st, 2nd or 3rd in an open GWT, or won a novice GWT
  • Novice: confined to dogs which have not gained a place or Certificate of Merit at a field trial, been placed 1st, 2nd or 3rd in an open GWT or 1st in a novice GWT held in accordance with The Kennel Club's rules and field trial regulations 
  • Puppy: confined to dogs of specific breed/s less than 18 months of age on the date of the test
  • Unclassified: open to all dogs of a specified breed/s but may be restricted by conditions as determined by the society. To include water and team tests. A water test can include dogs of any sub-group competing together. However, if dogs of more than one sub-group are competing as a team, each sub-group will compete and be judged in accordance with The Kennel Club's gundog working test regulations relating to that group.

Field trials

Generally societies will run field trials and allocate awards for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th place, as well as Certificate of Merit. For the championship stakes, Diplomas of Merit will be awarded in place of the Certificate of Merit. Awards accumulated are documented on dogs' records at The Kennel Club.

Dogs winning 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th awards or Certificates of Merit at their first field trial held under The Kennel Club's Field Trial Regulations, will receive a Stud Book Number Certificate from The Kennel Club.

  • Puppy stake
  • All aged stake
  • Novice stake
  • Open stake - owner of winning dog will receive a certificate from The Kennel Club
  • Championship/champion stake - owners of dogs winning 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th or a Diploma of Merit will receive a certificate from The Kennel Club

The Kennel Club runs a number of its own field trials. More information about The Kennel Club field trials can be found below.

The following dogs shall be entitled to be described as Field Trial Champions:

1. Pointers and Setters

(a) A dog placed 1st in the Pointer and Setter champion stake.

(b) A dog which gains two 1st awards at two different field trial meetings in open stakes for Pointers and Setters under two different panel A judges. In the event that the same panel A judge officiates at both trials, the dog will be entitled to the title of Field Trial Champion provided that the co-judge at one trial is also a panel A judge.

There must be no fewer than 16 runners in each of the stakes and one of these wins must be in a stake open to Pointers and all breeds of Setter.

2. Retrievers

(a) A dog placed 1st in the Retriever championship.

The Water Certificate may, but not necessarily, be gained at a special water test. The special water test must have been conducted before two panel A judges at one of the following: the Retriever championship, a field trial stake, or at a subsequent special test. (J(A)2 refers.)

4. Cocker Spaniels

(a) A dog placed 1st in the Cocker Spaniel championship.

(b) A dog which gains two 1st awards in open stakes under two different panel A judges. In the event that the same panel A judge officiates at both stakes, the dog will be entitled to the title of Field Trial Champion provided that the co-judge at one stake is also a panel A judge.

With the exception of the any variety Spaniel [excluding Spaniel (Cocker)] championship, all stakes must be limited to a maximum of 18 dogs. In order for the stakes to qualify there must be no fewer than 14 runners.

6. Proviso for all Spaniels

Before a dog is entitled to be described as a Field Trial Champion, it must also have gained a Water Certificate. The Water Certificate may, but not necessarily, be gained at a special water test. The special water test must have been conducted before two panel judges, one of whom must be an A, at one of the following: the championship, a field trial stake or at a subsequent special test.

In order for the stakes to qualify there must be no fewer than 10 runners. For the dog to be entitled to the title of Field Trial Champion one of its wins must be in a stake open to all breeds which hunt, point and retrieve.

Dual Champion

Any gundog which has been awarded the title of Show Champion and Field Trial Champion will gain the new title of Dual Champion.

Working Gundog Certificate (WGC)

The aim of the Working Gundog Certificate (WGC) is to provide credible proof that the handler and dog are a competent partnership, with the qualities to fulfil the general requirements of work on a shoot. The certificate may be gained at a variety of different events so that all aspects of a dog's work in the shooting field can be observed. The certificate will be issued by The Kennel Club and will list those tasks achieved on the day. Successful partnerships will have the distinction of having their names published in the field trials newsletter.

Who can take part?

The certificate is open to all Kennel Club pedigree registered dogs, crossbreeds and unregistered dogs, whose owners wish to demonstrate their dog’s working ability. Owners of crossbreed and previously unregistered dogs wishing to take the WGC must register the dog(s) on The Kennel Club Activity Register in advance.

Participants can only take part in the Working Gundog Certificate once they have received their Activity Register certificate, so please allow at least two months for your application to be processed.

What is required?

Handlers and dogs will be required to demonstrate competence in the following:

  • control
  • obedience
  • temperament
  • hunting
  • retrieving

Where and how will the assessment take place?

The WGC can be achieved at a variety of events:

  • A shoot using game:
    On a shoot, assessors will observe the participants throughout the day as they work their dogs in their usual role. The assessors will not devise any situations but simply be observing how a handler and dog cope with the specific tasks that naturally arise during the day

  • A WGC day for dogs that retrieve using dummies:
    At these days, the criteria will be assessed using simulated shooting field exercises:
    • handlers and dogs walk together to the start area with the dogs off lead and under control
    • a simulated drive with dogs assessed both in the beating line and waiting at pegs
    • hunting for seen dummies after the drive
    • hunting for unseen dummies after the drive
    • a marked retrieve from water
    • a marked retrieve from over an obstacle
    • a steadiness exercise where dogs are left together whilst handlers collect up decoys

  • A WGC day for dogs that point:
    At these days, the dogs will be assessed on hunting, locating, pointing and steadiness. The dogs should hunt the ground in a regular pattern, point live game, produce on command and be steady to flush and shot. Some participants may wish to take the retrieving assessment which might be organised on the day or at a later WGC day, a gundog working test or on a shoot. 

  • A gundog working test (GWT):
    An assessment at a GWT will be assessed against the criteria either by using separate exercises or using the exercises available on the day.

Show Gundog Working Certificate

The aim of the Show Gundog Working Certificate (SGWC) is to provide credible proof of the natural working ability of a gundog registered with The Kennel Club that has already proved it meets The Kennel Club's breed standard by a qualification in the show ring.

Read more about The Kennel Club Show Gundog Working Certificate.

Stud book number

A stud book number is gained when your dog either wins a 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th placed award, a Diploma of Merit or a Certificate of Merit at a field trials stake held under The Kennel Club Field Trial Regulations.

Field Trials Liaison Council

The Field Trials Liaison Council is an annual forum for the proposal and discussion of items generated directly from field trials societies, clubs and individuals. It is an opportunity for the field trials fraternity to submit requests, changes, problems and discussion items to each other and The Kennel Club.

What is the Field Trials Liaison Council?

The Field Trials Liaison Council is made up of representatives nominated by all field trial clubs with open status, elected for a three-year term to act as a channel of communication between field trial clubs, competitors and The Kennel Club. The council is an annual forum for the proposal and discussion of items generated directly from the grassroots within the sport.

Early in the year, notification of the forthcoming meeting and a request for submission of items will be issued. Clubs are encouraged to discuss any proposals with their membership and notify their representative and The Kennel Club of their item. Individuals can also put items forward through a representative. Once produced, the agenda is circulated to the representatives who are required to discuss all items with their clubs and gather feedback. The agenda is also available online.

At the council meeting, items must be seconded and are spoken to by the appropriate representative. Once they have been discussed, a vote is taken by the representatives as to whether outcomes should be recommended for approval or not. Following production of the minutes, the approved recommendations are submitted to the field trials committee. The responses from the committee are fed back to all representatives via the results of recommendations document. 

Note: no recommendation from the Field Trials Liaison Council becomes policy until it has been agreed by the field trials committee and then the board.

How to become a liaison council representative

Representatives are elected for a period of three years and the current term of office of all The Kennel Club Liaison Council representatives ends on 31 December 2021. 

Representatives are elected by The Kennel Club's registered societies and clubs that have an active interest in field trials.
