Field Trials

Field trials are run for both Retrievers and Spaniels at Open and Novice standard. Trials are run under Kennel Club rules and regulations – Kennel Club Regulations_Field Trials

The winners of Open stakes are rewarded with the opportunity to compete in the National Championships. Dogs that win an award at our trials gain an entry into the Kennel Club Stud Book.

The club runs a full programme of Field Trials, licensed by the Kennel Club, on shoots in Devon by kind permission of land owners and shooting syndicates. We work closely with shoot managers and their game – keepers to ensure that trials are run to a high standard. The club is licensed to run the following trials each season:
