There are no prerequisites for joining this course.

This three-day workshop will help you teach your working and pet gundog the difference between going out hunting and going out for social pleasure, i.e. a walk.

There is a great deal of debate, conflict and confusion around the subject of whether to let your dog run free, off lead in the countryside, irrespective of whether it is a family pet or a working gundog.

In this in-person workshop, you will learn the ultimate steps to communicate with your pet or working gundog the difference between ‘going for a walk’ and ‘going hunting’ in the same stimulating environment.

Our Going for a Bumble workshop, led by Helen and Lynsey, is suitable for…

  • All breeds of gundog including retrievers, spaniels and HPRs
  • Gundogs working at all levels
  • Pet gundog owners
  • Those looking to work their dog in the field or participate in working tests
  • Anyone with a gundog which makes a beeline to the horizon as soon as they are off lead, which enjoys chasing wildlife, and which often becomes too engrossed in hunting to respond to cues like recall.
  • Anyone who has previously watched the Gundog Trainers Academy 90-min online “Going for a Bumble” webinar and wants to further this learning.

Our Going for a Bumble workshop will cover topics including…

  • Understanding the difference between hunting and bumbling
  • How to create the bumble zone
  • How to use rewards to maintain connection and partnership in challenging situations
  • Teaching a check-in behaviour and how to progress this
  • Teaching the catch-up game
  • The art of “having a Kit-Kat” and learning to relax in a stimulating environment
  • Creating an invisible piece of string between you and your dog using circuits
  • Teaching your dog to change direction with you using the this-way game
  • How to decide how far away your dog should be from you at any given point
  • How to play hunting games to help keep your dog with you
  • Progressing these games and bumbling in the real world
Those booking the three-day workshop will also be given free access to the Gundog Trainers Academy 90-minute online “Going for a Bumble” webinar (worth £30), which is presented by Helen, along with Jules Morgan.
