Gundogs get new sub-group
The KC General Committee has approved the formation of a new sub-group within the Gundog group – the Utility Gundog sub-group.
Three breeds have been placed within this group – the Kooikerhondje, Lagotto Romagnolo and the Spanish Water Dog - to accommodate breeds coming from overseas whose breed standards and working practices do not fitwithin any of the other four current Gundog sub-groups.
In order that owners of dogs in the new sub-group should have the opportunity to take part in gundog work to which the dogs are suited, the Field Trials Sub-Committee has asked the Breed Clubs concerned to investigate what activities each breed would wish to undertake. In this respect they can develop tests specific to their breed to show their natural working abilities.
