Our goals include:

  • Empowering women through relationships with their dogs and through experiences in the outdoors
  • Creating safe, nonjudgmental environments for women to deepen their relationships with themselves and with their dogs 
  • Building a community of like-minded, supportive women
  • Encouraging the exploration of field sports
  • Fostering sportsmanship and conservation values among all participants

"The world is speeding up. It feels faster and faster than it has ever felt before. Girls with Gundogs is about taking a break from that. It's about getting yourself into a new situation, being outside with a dog, connecting to something natural, or primal even, that maybe you've lost touch with. It's a way to get women into the outdoors, it's a way to get women into conservation, and it's a way to get women into a field that's been dominated by men for a long time. That's the vision."
