Welcome to the Saskatoon Gun Dog Club!

The Saskatoon Gun Dog Club, founded in 1993, is based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, but draws members from much of the province. Our focus is to aid hunters in the training and testing of their versatile gun dogs. Flushing dog owners are also welcome to attend our training days, but the tests we offer require pointing. Owners of retriever breeds would be better served by the Saskatoon Retriever Club. From about April to September we try to hold one training day per month (see Events). In addition to the formal training days, many members train together on a regular basis and are happy to have others join in and help.

The 2019 annual general meeting was held January 26 at 2:30 PM in the Cabela's meeting room in Saskatoon. A VHDF-Canada meeting preceded it, starting at 1:00 PM.

A VHDF-Canada test will be held on September 14-15, 2019 at Alvena. For other events & training days planned for 2019, choose the Events and Projects tab.
