Fun Gundog Training For All Dogs

New term starts Saturday 6th February and Wednesday 10th February 2021

Fun Gundog training courses are designed to teach owners how to work with their dogs natural instincts. By learning what motivates their dog a relationship forges which in turn helps to improve responses when out an about. We take any breed of dog in these courses. indeed at present we have a Jack Russel, a Doberman and a Bull lurcher all working well at different levels.

For those who wish to work their dogs in the field for sport or tests these courses help you to expose your dogs to the distractions of other dogs, helping them to develop steadiness around others and building confidence in handler and dog.
