The Leicestershire Gundog Society was first registered with The Kennel Club in August 1967. From that time the Society has had as its objectives the encouragement of interest in the gundog group and the development of the natural instincts of this group. To achieve this the Society has historically promoted and organised field trials, working tests and shows. Our current calendar offers a full programme of field trials and working tests for retrievers and spaniels. Details may be found in the relevant sections of this website As opportunity arises we also conduct training seminars, both practical and theoretical to further the knowledge and expertise of our members.
RETRIEVER FIELD TRIALS
SPANIEL FIELD TRIALS
The current Covid-19 pandemic has caused massive disruption and suffering across the World. We have to recognise that the disruption of gundog competitions is one of the more minor effects. Nevertheless, LGS committee has been attempting to arrange at least some events during this season. As some of you will be aware we were in the run up to a retriever trial in November and spaniels events in December.
The current countrywide lockdown until early December has forced the cancellation of the retriever trial scheduled for 23 November. In view of the uncertainty of the lockdown end date the committee has decided that the two spaniel trials on 8 & 9 December will also be cancelled.
There seems every likelihood that Covid-19 disruption will continue well into the New Year. The committee has therefore decided that LGS will not run any field trials during the 2020/21 season.
This decision was not taken lightly and was accompanied by much regret among committee members. We would like to thank everyone, estates, keepers, judges and helpers who have worked with us during this difficult time.
We look forward to what we hope will be a brighter Spring when we intend to run a programme of working tests followed by field trials in due season.
