Gundog? Fun Dog! (Levels 1 & 2)

2019: 1.5 hours, one weekend day per month for each level

Level 1

This class is suited for anyone: whether you would like to learn fun new skills that you can use when out on a walk with your dog to spice things up and adding reliable whistle cues or if you are intending to work your dog in the future. Our monthly Gundog? Fun Dog! classes with Calum McConnell are for any breed of dog, any level of experience and using clicker training to encourage focus, control and problem-solving abilities in your dog. These 90 minute classes will give you new games to play with your dog and develop your relationship while out and about.

Please see below for dates and times.

Level 2

Once you have been through the four themed sessions for level 1, you can join our level 2 workshops which will be progressing the exercises and skills learned. If you have prior Gundog training experience, then please get in contact to see if you can join in with the level 2 workshops.

Please see below for dates and times.

All sessions are 1.5 hours and will be working outside in our secure 8 acre field, or inside in the training barn if the weather’s really awful, you and your dog will learn retrieves, searches and practice plenty of self control, focus and team work.

If you would specifically like to work on your dog’s retrieving skills, then you may be interested in our three week Developing Rapid Retrieves course.
