    Gundog working tests

    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

    Gundog working tests

    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

    Gundog Insurance

    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

    gundog training

    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.

    Getting a gundog trained

    Thanks for the informative reply. Yes I could train her myself but I don’t have the time. I work full time and I am picking up 2 - 3 times a week until January. I wasn’t going to get another dog until February/March but this extremely well bred part trained dog came And i had to make a decision on taking her now or waiting, and I doubt i would have got such an opportunity had I waited. My older dog is now 9 so I doubt she will be picking up much after this season so I need another for the start of the next shooting season

    Getting a gundog trained

    Anyone trained their own dog and also sent one away for residential training? i gave tesined two myself but don’t have time to train a third. I have bought a 6 month old part trained ess and thinking of sending her for residential training so I would appreciate the thoughts from people who have done both. Do you get the same “bond” with a dog who is sent away? thanks

    7 month old lab bitch - cold game retrieving

    Whenever its ready. I have a 6 month old springer who is already on the whistle, sitting, staying, basic directions and is retrieving cold and warm game. It depends on the dog and how its trained However, I wouldn’t be working it until it is much older.

      English Springer Spaniel.

      I have 2 springers. One was easy to train the other difficult. That said the difficult one to train is probably the better Gundogs. As said I would read Joe Irving’s book but also watch David Lissets dvd
