The Gordon Setter Club of Scotland was established with the purpose of bringing together those of us who love this incredible breed.
We have the goal of ensuring the continued success of the breed - its health, well-being and future development - the Club works with the Kennel Club, Breed Council and other breed clubs to make sure Gordon Setters remain healthy and fit for life.
Something about who the site is aimed for, competitions, field trials, support the breed, interests in Gordon setters etc.
The Gordon Setter Club of Scotland was formed in November 1987 and was granted Kennel Club recognition a year later. Since then, the Club has held training days, field trials, demonstrations on the moor and fun days and currently holds both an Open and a Championship Show each year.
To provide information and on-going education for those interested in Gordon Setters, the Club also runs various seminars on topics such as health, first aid, grooming and judging.
Members of the committee are available to answer questions and give advice on the care and commitment required to live with the breed. New members are always welcome to join and become involved in the friendly activities run by the Club.
Our Committee Members
29th August 1987
A meeting, which attracted over forty enthusiasts, was held at The Scottish Kennel Club Championship Show regarding the possibility of forming a Gordon Setter Club in Scotland.
At that time the Gordon Setter Association had around 100 Scottish members and Mrs Jeanette Allan (Swanley) had been approached by several Gordon owners about the possibility of forming a club for Scotland.
