Galloway Gundogs are again organising this year’s Scurry. Enjoy a combination of a canine derby, Grand National and a relay race.

The Scurry takes place on both days around our specially constructed track. Handlers and their dogs travel from far and wide with many different breeds of gundog to take part in this popular dog event.

Prizes will be awarded on Saturday and Sunday to 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th

Take Part!

So come and join in the fun! Enter your dog, no matter what the breed, or simply enjoy the trials, tribulations, thrills and spills as a spectator, watching our competitors tackle the course.

Entry £2 per run or £5 for 3 runs.

Retriever & Spaniel Tests 2023

We are delighted to have Galloway Gundog Association back and running these dog events at the Fair. Retriever tests will take place on Saturday 12th and Spaniel Tests on Sunday 13th.

Each test will have a maximum of 16 Novice Dog’s in the morning and a 16 Open Dog’s in the afternoon. Dogs will be running in pairs and it will involve one test only.

The tests are non KC and open to GGA members as well as non-members and will be similar in nature to the tests at Scone Game Fair.

You will have to complete an entry form and post to the GGD Secretary in advance.  If the classes are oversubscribed they will hold a draw to determine the run order and reserve list.

All entrants will be sent a Galloway Country Fair entry pass and details prior to arriving on the day.

The tests will run 10am sharp to 4pm each day. With presentations to follow at approx 4.30pm

Take Part

Completed entry forms with payment are required to be submitted no later than Friday 28th July 2023, to the address stated on the entry form.
