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 (in both the Morning & Afternoon sessions)

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.
