Cambridgeshire Gundog Club



Cambridgeshire Gundog Club

The Cambridgeshire Gundog Club was formed in 2010 by Matthew Topham, who identified the need for a different kind of club in Cambridgeshire to develop and improve the standard of gundog training and handling. 

In just a few months we attracted over 20 members looking to work together to promote high standards of gundog work.  We welcome all breeds of gundog and every standard of handler from young novice upwards.  Breeds currently training are Labrador Retriever, Golden Retriever, Flatcoated Retriever, Springer Spaniel and Cocker Spaniel.

From March to September the Club organises regular training sessions in Cambridgeshire.  These provide opportunities for dogs and handlers to learn together and work alongside others in preparation for the shooting field or trials ground.  On occasion we invite guest trainers to add to the expertise within the club.

Our training grounds provide rough cover and opportunities to retrieve both from and across water.
We encourage prospective members to come along and meet us at a training session with their dogs.

For those of a competitive nature, we encourage participation in local and national Working Tests and Game Fair competitions.

We also do our bit for charity through events such as running Dog Scurries at the Cambridgeshire County Show in aid of East Anglia Air Ambulance.  We hope to grow our membership through such events.

CGC is set up by and for its members.

Our Annual General Meeting is an open forum to discuss future plans and an opportunity to thank members and sponsors for their support.

CGC is affiliated to the NFU and a keen supporter of East Anglia Air Ambulance.  The Club welcomes enquiries from any gundog enthusiast of whatever level.
