Training Classes
We always start with a private 1-to-1 session, so that we can get to know you, and discuss with you what you want to get out of your dog’s training. This session will typically last 1 – 2 hours; we will discuss whether it would be most beneficial for you and your dog to have some private lessons, or whether you might like to join a group lesson. We will tailor your training package to suit you – what your needs are, and what you want to achieve.

We do not insist upon you booking a block of lessons, as every dog and handler is different. We show you how to train your dog - we don't train your dog for you - you do that!

Puppy Training
Most people leave puppy training until it's too late - and often when bad habits have been instilled (albeit accidentally) in the dog and the handler. We start training our puppies as soon as they arrive, training little and often as puppies get bored - and tired - very easily. We are more than happy to discuss the earliest stages of training over the phone. Our 8-acre training ground provides plenty of space to enable puppies and youngsters to master the basics and polish their manners.
Puppy training involves: *The correct use of the lead * Walking to heel * Sit, stay & recall * Whistle work * Introduction to retrieving * Delivery *Socialisation * Steadiness training *Explanation of gundog & field etiquette and discipline.

Open Training Classes
You’ve worked really hard on your dog – now let us get you ready for Open. By the time you reach this level, your dog should be stopping on the whistle, steady to shot, heeling correctly, delivering correctly, have mastered the hunting technique, marking long distance retrieves, working comfortably across water etc etc.

Your training programme will be entirely tailored to meet your requirements. We will help you to polish your handling techniques, and we will help you work through many challenging scenarios always found at Open level. At this stage we make full use of multiple remote dummy launchers, cold game when available, jumps, ditches, blinds across water and long marked and blind retrieves etc etc - the training ground really comes into its own...
