AT THE SCOTTISH GAME FAIR

GUNDOGS

Watch our four legged friends as they go to work with amazing speed and agility.

The world of Gundogs is an ever-growing attraction at the Scottish Game Fair and a team of experts are always on hand to provide tips and advice. Ask about anything from feeding your pup correctly to working your fully trained adult dog on a grouse moor. Meet the breeds and find out what might be best for you before taking on a new puppy. There is no such thing as a stupid question, so please come see us. We are happy to offer advice on your existing dog or what breed might suit you, as well as feeding tips and dog management advice.

Gun Dog Competitions

Gun dog demonstrations and competitions run throughout the Scottish Game Fair Weekend. Highlights include Restricted Gun Dog Tests for Spaniels and Retrievers, the ever popular Scurry, Junior Handler Tests and the Four Nations International Gundog Competition.

Distraction Alley

Have you mastered the scurry? Put your dog through its paces by doing a timed retrieve with a bolting rabbit to distract them.

Takes place on Saturday and Sunday. Prizes for the best dog and also for the dog who makes us laugh most!

Gundog Lessons

£5 for 10 minutes with an expert learning more about you, your dog and how to enhance the relationship between you and your dog and to help you both unlock your potential. All proceeds go to the GWCT. No dog? No problem – borrow one of ours!

Puppy Corner

Meet the puppies for a cuddle. Introduce yourself or others to the joy of owning a dog or help someone overcome a fear of dogs. We are here to help and so are the puppies!

Gun Dog Demonstrations

As well as the main arena demos by Sealpin Gundogs, there will be demonstrations at The John Clark World of Gundogs throughout the weekend.

Scurry

This is your chance to get into the scurry with your dog, and see how they run. Always fun!
