** NEW STARTER GUNDOG COURSE **
a morning session - 10AM - Mondays at a Private Venue
8-week course for Gundog Breeds (and Gundog Crossbreeds) of all ages and levels. The aim is to work through The Gundog Club grades and Test at Level 1 and 2 in the summer. With emphasis on force-free, positive methods, using the click/treat concept and platforms to teach the retrieve, hunting and quartering, obedience and some directional training. Initial classes will be held in the covered school, but the intention is to work through paddocks, woodland and water as the course progresses. You might like to consider joining the Life Skills as an introduction. £120 Please email your interest to :

The LIFE SKILLS GROUP, which is open to all breeds/types of dog and their owners, focuses on improving the dog/handler partnership using click/treat, platforms and scentwork is an excellent starting point for those who eventually wish to work on other disciplines, including gundog training, which require focus in a more distracting environment. Perfect for those wishing to join the Gundog Group or try out The Gundog Club testing scheme, KCWC or just hunt and shoot with their dogs eventually.
1-2-1 and small group Gundog private sessions can be arranged in a safe, covered mènage and fenced paddocks in the Axminster area, local grounds or at your own home ground.
My experience covers Retriever, Spaniel and Hunt/Point/Retriever training to Working Test and with HPRs and Retrievers to Field Trial standard. Enquire for help, to work out problems, train with other dogs as a distraction, work towards The Gundog Club levels, the KC GWT, or just to get going with this enjoyable canine discipline. See my new course above for the complete beginner or basically-trained young dog.
