This workshop will look at how to teach your gundog to jump over fences and other barriers on cue.
If you’re planning on working your dog in the field, or want to participate in working tests and trials, you will need to train your gundog to navigate obstacles with and without retrieve articles in their mouths.
Some dogs are natural jumpers, and others are more cautious. Whichever gundog you have, it is important to teach both types how to tackle barriers and jumps in a safe manner.
Training will build confidence and enjoyment for those nervous jumpers. It will also reduce the long-term impact and risk of injury for the bold jumpers who tend to be too busy going 100mph to focus on the jump, resulting in poor takeoff and landing.
Our barriers and jumps workshop, led by Lynsey, is suitable for...
- Mature dogs that have stopped growing and will not damage their growth plates by jumping
