Welcome to the
Manitoba Gun Dog Association
Preserving Working Retrievers since 1935
The MGDA operates on our privately owned grounds north west of Balmoral Manitoba approximately 45 minutes from Winnipeg. Our club has hosted annual licensed trials since the 1930's, as well as successful national events since 1982. It is well known in retriever circles as being a premiere location. The Manitoba Gun Dog Association has a membership of approximately 70 enthusiasts, many of whom are active field trial, hunt test and working certificate participants, as well as a growing community of new working dog teams.
The City of Winnipeg is located at the junction of the Red and Assiniboine River, almost at the geographic centre of North America. It is an ideal location for all participants across the country to travel to easily. Including our American participants.
Our challenging grounds are 160 acres in size with a good mix of land and water, with our continuous improvement to ensure we are getting optimal training areas. We are a club that is encourages growth in the sport through our orientation programs and mentorship.
