Welcome to the website of the
Usk Valley Working Gundog Club.


EVENTS 2021:

Subject to the guidance set out by the Government and Kennel Club, UVWGC are hoping to run the following events for our members throughout 2021.  Please note that we will be capping the number of competitors at our working test events and that the running order will be completed through a draw as we would do with our field trials.  We hope that we will be able to see many of you and your four legged companions very soon.  In the meantime, please keep well and stay safe.
