World of Gundogs
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.
We are already planning our 2019 Gundog attractions so watch this space. Here’s what we offered in our 2018 show
£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.
Meet the puppies for a cuddle. Introduce yourself or others to the joy of owning a dog or help someone over come a fear of dogs. We are here to help and so are the puppies!
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.
Saturday and Sunday. Have you mastered the scurry? Put your dog through its paces by doing a timed retrieve with a bolting rabbit to distract them.
Prizes to be won for the best dog but also prizes for the dog who makes us laugh!
As well as the main arena demos by Sealpin Gundogs, there will be demonstrations at The John Clark World of Gundogs throughout the weekend
