Working Labrador and Golden Retriever Field Trial Champion Stud Dogs and Gundog training* available in the Midlands.

Based at Wedgnock Shooting Ground, Warwick, Warwickshire, in the Midlands, Steve and Sally Richardson run Wedgnock and Hartleyjean Gundogs and Wedgnock Dog Centre. We are both A Panel Retriever Judges, and Steve has been invited to judge the 2023 Retriever Championship.


Our hobby and passion is working and competing with our dogs, whether it be picking up on local shoots or running in Field Trials and Working Tests successfully at the highest level.


We have made up six Field Trial Champions and qualified for twelve Retriever Championships with the following wonderful dogs: Labradors FTCh Levenghyl Sun Dancer, FTCh Astraglen Hail, FTCh Birdsgreen Cluedo of Wedgnock, FTCh Sothebys Choice of Wedgnock and Golden Retrievers FTCh Castlemans Mkussi and FTCh Frizelwood Odan of Hartleyjean. 


We have competed successfully in local, national and international K.C. Working Tests over many years. Steve achieved the greatest honour of being selected to run Cluanie and Otto in the winning England Gundog Teams for the Internationals at the Scottish and English Game Fairs and Skinners World Cup in 2018, 2019,  2021, 2022 and 2023, with Otto winning Top Retriever at the 2022 Game Fair Home International.

The England team won the Scottish Game Fair Home International in 2018, 2019 and 2022, The Game Fair Home International in 2018, 2019 and 2021, and The Skinner's World Cup in 2023 against 14 teams of the top retrievers in Europe!

Otto won the Top Retriever trophy at the Home International at the 2022 Game Fair. This is a hugely prestigious award, with the best dogs in the UK competing, so I'm immensely proud of him!
