Battlefield Beagle Club, Inc. is a sportsmen's club that is located in the historic Fredericksburg, Virginia area. Battlefield hosts beagle field trial events which are licensed by the American Kennel Club (AKC). Battlefield Beagle Club is a proud member of the United Beagle Gundog Federation (UBGF) and Mid America Brace Gundog Federation (MABGF).

The club is named "Battlefield" because it is located in an area where more civil war battles were fought than any where else in the country. The club is located near the Battle of the Wilderness, where Union and Confederate armies fought on May 5 - 7, 1864.

Battlefield's membership is diverse and is open to beagle field trial enthusists, beagle conformation show participants, rabbit hunters and beagle lovers in general.

Battlefield offers amentities which will allow its members a place to train their beagles, fellowship with other beagle owners and an opportunity to learn about the sport of beagle field trials.
