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



Please note that if we have to limit the number of competitors at our working test events 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.


Our Usk Valley working test and field trial events are currently sponsored by BASC, Skinners and ACME Whistles
