“The Korthals Griffon Club of Great Britain” was formed in 2004 by 6 like minded Korthals Griffon owners and H.P.R. enthusiasts. The Club was then granted Kennel Club recognition in 2008.

As the only Kennel Club “Recognised Breed Club” for this superb breed in Great Britain it actively promotes the training and utility of the Korthals Griffon as it was initially bred to be…..”A Versatile Hunting Dog”.

Worked principally here in the UK as a Bird Dog on Pheasant Partridge, Grouse and Duck, the Korthals Griffon can also be seen working along side Club members who are Falconers and Deer Stalkers.

Members’ Korthals Griffons have also gained recognition and success in both Field Trials and Gundog Working Tests. In non Field Events Korthals Griffons and their owners play an enthusiastic role in CaniX, Agility, Working Trials and Exhibitions.

The Korthals Griffon is also being shown successfully by members both here and on the Continent. At present in the UK, however, they are only eligible for entry in “Imported Register” classes, due to low numerical numbers.

The Club is open to all – and welcomes and encourages all new members to enjoy the privileges of membership.

The Club’s sponsored and Organised Events are held for the sub group of Hunt, Point and Retrieve Gundogs to which the Korthals Griffon belongs. Training days under professional tuition range from basic through Novice to Open standard. Work is on both land and water, and is geared on all occasions to bring out the best in both dog and handler. Through out the year the Club holds Events and Training Days for its membership, they are also open, for an additional small fee, to non members - numbers permitting.

The Club promotes Good Breeding practices and Pedigree management of The Korthals Griffon here in the UK. Towards this aim breed information and the Club’s 'Annual Breed Health Survey' (in collaboration with the Kennel Club) is accessible to members. Help is also offered to members who might wish to source and import a Korthals Griffon puppy from the Continent.
