TarTan Gordon Setter Club


As of last count we are approaching 850 entries at our Norwalk, CT Specialties June 12th & 13th. All breeds are still open for entries. Entries close the 26th of May. The Superintendent is Executive Dog Shows.

This is a Bare-Bones group of Specialties to benefit the Specialties. We have the “Good Dog” group that is providing the Grooming Tent and Hospitality Tent. Garavel, a Norwalk car dealership will have a couple of “hot” cars on site along with a wading pool if your dog needs to cool off. Food by Ripka’s Catering and CT Popcorn and drinks concocted by the Flip Bar.

Also, one general dog merchandise vendor will be on site. Good level grounds, with a nice ocean breeze, short grass with a Ring Tent, overnight parking at $30/night Friday-Monday noon, and only 30 miles to Westminster KC in Tarrytown, NY. Also we have special rates for exhibitors at a couple of local hotels in Norwalk–best rates in town!! See our Premium List with 14 breeds and 24 Specialties at www.Executivedogshows.com. Don’t wait for the last minute to enter.

Did I mention that we have some very nice restaurants in the area? Also on the same grounds are 4 Open Shows and 6 FastCAT Trials. Links can be found on our website www.Greenwichkc.org. Come join us. Restrictions are being lifted in CT, and may be gone by June. No problem in coming or going. Any questions get back to me.

TarTan Gordon Setter Club, Inc. 

Est. 1954

The TarTan Gordon Setter Club is an AKC-licensed, organization, established in 1954 for the purpose of preserving and promoting the Gordon Setter through performance and conformation events. Initially, the venues were field trials and a specialty show, but interests have grown to include hunt tests, agility trials, several supported entries, an annual picnic, and annual banquet, and more.

Whether you own a Gordon Setter or not; from non-owners to pet owners, to serious competitors, everyone is welcome to join our club. We have a wonderful group of individuals who love, enjoy and compete in all disciplines and aspects of Gordon Setter ownership. Centered in New England, including New York State, east of the Hudson River, our club offers field trials, hunting tests, specialties, supported entries and social events, including picnics and banquets, where we can enjoy each other’s company and take pleasure in our dogs. We are a cohesive group that takes pride in our reputation for friendliness and hospitality.
