A day of basic gundog training for those with young or novice spaniels, or those interested in finding out about gundog work.

Through the day handlers will learn about and practice on and off lead heel work, steadiness and control around distractions, introduce different types of retrieving, and how to harness the hunting drive.
Handlers will learn about what motivates their dogs, and how to use that to reward their dogs.
Exercises will be set up so that dogs and handlers can progress and achieve their goals without the need to use fear and punishments.
Equipment needed for the day: Dog. Collar. Lead or slip lead. Lunch. Gundog whistle. Sense of humour!
