Gundog Training 

Positive, reward based training......

Gundog training is a fantastic way to train and enjoy your working breed whilst stimulating their natural instincts. It is not just for those who compete or shoot regularly but is ideal for those wishing to train their dog by working with their natural instincts. 

Training this way creates a bond between you and your dog and allows you to harness your dog's natural ability.

Pet Gundogs  

Troubleshooting... 

  

Most owners of gundog breeds chose them to suit an active lifestyle. Whether this is as a working/sporting dog or to keep up with an outdoor lifestyle hiking, exploring and adventuring.  

Problems can arise when the dog develops his/her natural working instincts to hunt/chase and they are not managed correctly. Many clients do not feel they can let their spaniel, labrador or crosbreed off leash as they will ' run off' after birds, bunnies or sometimes even just an interesting smell!  

  

This can result in very stressful walks for both dog and owners - whilst the dog is resigned to life on leash. If this sounds like you, then Pet Gundog Training  is the way forwards.  

  

During the first session we will discuss any questions you may have about your dog and find out what you would like to achieve or improve on.  The lessons are then tailored accordingly and suit a range of ages from early puppy days onwards.  

Frequently Covered in sessions are the following topics: 

Chase drive -  prey drive - recall - steadiness -  appropriate excercise management - leash walking - distance control
