Dr Katie Friel-Russell MRCVS runs out Gundog Training here at Positive Pet Training which is all force-free as the rest of our work is too.
We start with our dummy training, progressing through bronze, silver and gold working to the Gundog Trust Graded Scheme Guidelines. We work to really high levels of self control for your dog and it is great fun for them regardless of whether you wish to work them or not. Your dog is assessed at the end of each course to see if they are ready to progress to the next level.
Your dog doesn’t need to be a working gundog breed to be able to attend but gundogs and gundog crosses are most likely to enjoy this kind of work.
Gundog classes have a maximum of four dogs per class or we can complete this work on an individual basis too. Your dog must have first completed our Life Skills class before attending our Gundog Training.
Following that you can work through training with cold, warm and live game with us too if you wish to work your dog on shoots or trial them.
Once you’ve completed your gold Gundog training you can then come along to one of our mock “shoot” days or progress on to game if you wish!
