Through the years, PNWGSC has had many incarnations. It began life in the early 1970's when a band of Gordon Setter lovers/hunters joined to form the Puget Sound Gordon Setter Fanciers. We still have some of those early "pioneers" with us today. They held field events, working certificate tests, and met to enjoy each others company.
In the 1980's, they were recognized by the Gordon Setter Club of America as the Puget Sound Gordon Setter Club, an area committee of the GSCA. Through the ensuing decades the Puget Sound Gordon Setter Area Committee of the GSCA held numerous specialty shows, field trials, hunt tests and working certificate tests. These include two National Field Trials at Sprague, WA in 2000 and at Sunnyside, WA in 2008 and two National Specialties in 1985 in Vancouver, WA and 2003 in Silverdale, WA.
In 2009, we applied to the AKC to become an independently licensed club under the name of The Pacific Northwest Gordon Setter Club and we achieved this honor in the early months of 2012. We are very proud to have achieved this after completing all the requirements.
Our members have finished many champions in Conformation, Obedience, Rally, Agility, Field and Hunt Trials. Some of these champions have finished at the top of their fields in the nation. We are extremely proud of all of them.
Last, but actually foremost, in our lives, our Gordons are our hearts. We love our pets and their absolute loyalty to our families, their sense of humor and companionship.
Here's to our favorite breed...!
