A course aimed at people new to gundog training or just starting to train a new working dog will be hosted by the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC) in Lancashire.
The hands-on course, sponsored by Chudleys dog food, will be held at Warton, near Carnforth, on 11th April.
It will cover selecting a puppy, housing, feeding and basic training. All main working breeds will be included.
BASC’s Northern Regional Director Phil Pugh said: “Anyone who has just acquired or is contemplating obtaining a gundog will benefit from the day. It will provide an introduction and practical hands-on experience with guidance and help for the important first steps and techniques needed to produce a dog the owner can be proud of in the shooting field.
“This is a course run by two true shooting trainers who know all the wrinkles and have first hand knowledge of working dogs in the field.”
The total cost for the day is £40, places are limited. For more information and to book, contact Jean Pugh at BASC’s Northern Regional office on 01200 445046.
