Greetings Gundog Admirers. 

We extend a warm welcome to you and invite you to get to know our Club.

The Working Gundog Club Inc. (WGC) is the most active gundog and retrieving club in New South Wales. We are devoted to supporting working and exhibition activities, and quality breeding of all purebred Gundog breeds in Australia. We are also the sponsors of this website, Retrieving Australia.

Each year our club conducts at least 3 Retrieving Trials, 3 Retrieving Ability Tests, a Championship Show, 2 Training Days and a Demonstration Day. Details of our planned events for this year appear here under NSW. Look for “WGC” listings.

You don’t have to be a member to take part in our activities, but membership does have great benefits.

Thank you for visiting us – we hope to meet you in the field or ring. Please get in touch with us sometime.

Many of our members are experienced breeders, triallers and exhibitors who further the club's activities by helping new members to understand all aspects of gundog ownership. Members also receive access special WGC member postings that appearing the Forum section of this site.

Full membership - is open to anyone over eighteen years of age who owns a registered Gundog or who has a genuine interest in the breed.
