Learn how to understand, manage and control your pet gundog’s natural instinct day to day. Suitable for retrievers, spaniels and HPR breeds (pointers, Viszla’s, Weimeraners etc. ).
The Introductory course (June 30th/July 1st) will be a mixture of theory and practical with lots of opportunities to ask questions and gain real insight into utilising your dog’s natural abilities. At the first course Jane will introduce everyone to the basic control exercises used in gundog work, including impulse control and using a whistle to communicate with the dog. Jane will evaluate each dog individually and give you lots of homework to train over the subsequent couple of months.
In September Jane will run a follow-on course, designed to progress those basic skills learnt. This course will also start to look at the more advanced exercises of directional retrieves and hunting. All designed for you to have fun with your dog whilst building a really solid training relationship and thereby improving your overall confidence in off-lead situations.
This course is suitable for pet gundogs of any age whose owners would like to learn to understand and manage them better day to day. To attend, dogs must have an interest in toy play and basic pick up (or retrieve) skills. The course can also be attended by other breeds whose owners wish to expand the skills outlined above.
