The Natal Gundog Club

Field Section - Retrievers

The Natal Gundog Club has been actively promoting field-trialling activities for retrievers for the past thirty-five years. We run two licensed field trials each year, in May, June/July and August/September on a variety of farms in the Pietermaritzburg/Howick area. We also organise monthly club tests which have proved extremely beneficial in improving the standard of our retrievers, as well as running two Field Festivals during the course of the year. Many of our members are experienced field-triallers with a wealth of knowledge which we are only too happy to share with beginners to the sport and informal training days are available most weekends.

All of our field members receive bimonthly e-newsletters that provide information about forthcoming events and news on topical issues. Members also receive regular updates and newsflashes on events and issues that affect the trialling community. All membership enquiries should be sent to:
