  1. Chessgrove and they have automatic/solo traps
  2. Theses are excellent made machines and also useful for trading steadiness of Gundogs by attaching a dummy
  3. A few years old but little worn and in excellent condition with no rips, tears, stains etc. All zips work Size Large £45 posted
  4. Thanks Vince what is the name of the gun shop? i am new to the area
  5. Anyone on here have any local knowledge of Chippenham? I work there, on Bumpers Farm I am looking for some rough grass where I can train my young spaniel to hunt during my lunch hour. There are plenty of parks and fields with short grass but I specifically want some cover. Thanks
  6. 2nd Chris Upton. I have watched loads of his stuff on youtube DVD - I would recommend David Lisett Books - Joe Irving's book The Learning Chain That said a good local trainer who does one2one and group lessons would prove invaluable Best of all use all the above
  7. I would say claim if you need the money and if you don't I wouldn't bother. My experience with PetPlan is that if the incident doesn't cause an ongoing health issue your premium will not go up. We had a £6,000 vet bill (infection caused by grass seed) earlier this year and last week a £500 bill for the same dog due to barbed wire and we claimed for both. The claim process is easy and quick and most vets will check it and submit it on your behalf. Our policy was due for renewal in March and didn't increase by more than 3% which I would expect anyway due to inflation. I submitted the "barbed wire" claim last week and got a text on Friday confirming it had been accepted and the money will be paid direct into my account within 5 days
  8. Maybe not too far as I have family in Gloucestershire so could combine both
  9. Thanks for the replies. bigbird I would appreciate a rundown on a novice test please. Are there any videos online worth watching? I want to see what the cover is like and the distance of the marked, blind and water retrieves
  10. Does anyone know what the tests are for a spaniel in the "Puppy" working test? I know what the entry requirements are - under 18 months of age on date of test etc but I can't find anything relating to the actual test. I would like to know what is involved for me and the puppy. I can find details for the "novice" and "open" tests but not the "Puppy" test Thanks
  11. PetPlan for all 3 of mine They have been great and never had a problem with them. We had a 6.5K claim in February this year and they were brilliant
  12. You could also try Darren @ Kirkbourne Gundogs as they do group and one2one sessions; https://www.kirkbournespaniels.co.uk/ About 30 miles from Mansfield but I would say well worth the trip.
  13. Get David Lisett’s dvd and/or Joe Irving’s book The Learning Chain
