Kirkbourne Spaniels Can Come To You, at one show alone we saw over 500 dogs enter one of our game fair events. Our aim is to bring new people into our sport and on request we can hold junior events too.

For more information please e mail us at



Kirkbourne Spaniels have been demonstrating across the UK with a massive following not only from our club but from many social media sites, we have over 5k followers on these sites. This is advantages to get a greater foot fall to the shows we attend.

Long Retrieve 

The public love this one, dog and handlers from the untrained to the advanced dogs have a go. A single retrieve is required over a long distance, your dog does not to be trained it just needs to be fast. The dog is sent for the retrieve and is under the clock. Once again the fastest dog wins

Kirkbourne Working Test

Full on working test for dog and handlers to be set tasks and try for the maximum score. This has seen some of the top handlers in the UK. Their passion for training shines through and it has a very big following. We have seen hundreds of dogs enter this type of event 


The public love a good scurry and attend the shows with their dogs to have a go, we have seen in 2023 an increase of people attending just for the thrill and enjoyment of these very simple events. This is a timed event and the fastest dog wins. A 3 seen retrieve under the clock. 

Up and over Bales

The pure thrill of seeing your dog flying over the bales at speed to retrieve under the watchful eye of the judge. This is a fast pace task and really gets the pubic going. All under the clock and again the fastest dog wins at the end of the day.

Kirkbourne Cube Challange

This is not for the basic pet owner but we still see the public have a go, there are 4 boxes all numbered and the judge selects what order the dog must retrieve in. This shows the training and team work between dog and handler
