About Me

My photo
A gundog natural instinct is to retrieve. Retrieving Trials provide a perfect avenue for these dogs to express their natural abilities, have fun and exercise. Our sport simulates hunting conditions where the dogs ability to retrieve is tested over various terrain and conditions commonly found in hunting scenarios. The dogs retrieve Dokken Dead Fowl Trainers (artificial game) from anything from dams or creeks to thick marsh or sparse paddocks. We strive to make our competitions a friendly and social environment where our competitors can not only compete whilst having fun with their canine companions, but also enjoy the comradery and friendships that develop with people of similar interests.

Congratulations to the VIC division of WGAA - SSAA VIC Shot Expo 2015


A word from Barry Oliver..."Hi all, Just to let you all know that the WGAA gundog demos at the SSAA Shot Expo over the weekend were an outstanding success. Handlers and dogs and the guy on the PA all performed up to expectations and beyond. Well done everyone. SSAA National & SSAA Vic were 'over the moon' with the displays and the huge crowds at our demos."
Great work! We look forward to manning a stand and demonstrating at the QLD SSAA Shot Expo to be held in August this year.

WGAA Vic is presenting an Interstate Retrieving Trial Challenge.

The VIC WGAA club is thrilled to announce that several members of the Queensland Branch of the SSAA United Field & Retrieving club will be traveling down south to compete in these trials.
The trials will be held over the weekend of the 4th & 5th of July and will be held in the Nagambie area.

The stakes will be Open, Advanced, Intermediate & Test.
The schedule and entry forms will be circulated soon so make sure you keep this weekend free.
Even if you are not entering remember that we will need plenty of helpers on the day.
This will be a ground breaking event for WGAA and will hopefully lead to triallers making the trip north in future.
