Gun Dog Training

Spaniel with game

Gun dog Classes for any age or breed and from beginners to more advanced dogs.

A new chance to learn a different set of skills with your dog in a fun and safe environment, whether its just for fun or you would like to put these new skills to use.

We train by using positive reinforcements to shape the behaviours of a gun dog.

In the classes we will cover

Foundation class:

  • Heelwork
  • Introducing the whistle with recalls
  • Retrieving
  • Place Boards
  • Stays


Intermediate:

  • Pushing all of the skills from the beginners courses by introducing more distractions and slightly more challenging retrieving
  • Stops on the whistle
  • Hunting


Advanced:

  • We will be looking to push the dogs on even more with long, multiple, memory and blind retrieving
  • Distance control and directional work
  • Hunting with blind retrieves
  • Bolting Rabbit
  • Dummy Launcher


Of course with gun dog training there will be an element of refamiliarising the dogs to the sound of a gun, we will use a staring pistol at a distance and move closer if all the dogs are comfortable with it.

Classes will be held on a Wednesday, please contact us for more information on times and availability.
