Graded Training scheme was launched in
2006, and has enrolled over four thousand new
students to its training programme. It has
provided advice, information, and an
introduction to gundog fieldwork to thousands more,
and helped gundog owners throughout the UK to
overcome difficulties with their dogs. The
scheme is run by the Gundog Club, an organisation
founded solely for the purpose of helping those
struggling to train or manage their gundog breed
Until June 2011 the Gundog Club was privately owned.
In order to preserve and protect the Graded Training scheme for the public
benefit, and to embrace more opportunities for
gundog welfare, on 6th June 2011, the Gundog Club
directors undertook to pass ownership of the Gundog
Club to a new charity: The Gundog Trust.
This new charity is run solely for the benefit of
all working gundogs and their owners. You can read
