Following the very unfortunate cancellation of Gundog Breeds Association of Scotland, we have been forced to find a new venue for our Championship Show.

Please find below a recent announcement from the Gordon Setter Breed Council:

A standalone website has been created for the Gordon Setter Breed Council and can be found at This new resource will allow your Breed Council to update judging and health matters regularly, without having to rely on the assistance of the GSA - who have very generously hosted the Breed Council's page for several years and to whom the Breed Council wish to express grateful thanks. 


The judges list criteria have been revised recently and can be found on the new website, along with the appropriate application form. We would encourage all judges to also take note of the new Kennel Club regulations for appointment of judges, and which seminars and related criteria they must meet before accepting any new judging appointment. 


The Breed Council encourages all judges - breed specialists in particular - to apply to be added to the judges lists, or to apply to update their CV; the revised criteria may mean an individual is ready to progress to a higher listing. 


The list of judges is updated regularly and anyone who wishes their application to be considered at the next meeting should submit it before 20th May. The next meeting of the committee of the Breed Council will take place on 27th May, immediately before the 2020 & 2021 AGMs, which commence at 19:30 hours (all hosted online on the Zoom platform).  Fully paid-up members of each constituent breed society (BGSC, GSA, GSFTS or GSCS) may attend the meeting to observe, however as per the constitution of the Breed Council, only breed club representatives have voting rights. 


Should anyone wish to discuss any of the above, or wish to attend the AGM, please email

David Alcorn, Acting Secretary
