This full week of gundog training will challenge both handlers and dogs, enabling them to progress towards the higher Gundog Club field tests, Kennel Club Working Gundog Certificate on dummies, and Novice and Open working tests.

Our Retriever Summer Camp, led by Helen, is suitable for...

  • Progressive retriever breeds e.g. labradors, flatcoats, golden retrievers.
  • Any breed whose specific interest is in picking up or working on the peg.
  • Dogs who have completed our Foundation and / or Graduate Foundation for Gundog course.
  • Dogs which have passed their Gundog Club Grade 2 field assessment and/or are working towards Grade 3 and above.
  • Those looking to work their gundog in the shooting field.
  • Handlers looking to participate in working tests and trials.
  • Pet gundog owners who want to continue gundog training beyond the basics as a fun hobby and to give their dogs an outlet for their natural hunting desires.
  • Dogs who have been introduced to the sound of shot, and are not gun shy.

Our Retriever Summer Camp will cover topics including:

  • Retriever training including marks, memories and blinds
  • Holding an area, hunt there whistle and sweeping
  • Water work
  • Arousal management
  • Building connection
  • Starting pistols, dummy launchers, and bolting rabbits will be introduced during the week.

The exercises will be set to meet the needs of the participants on the day. It will be a fun task-based programme of learning for you with your dog.

There will also be the possibility of taking the Gundog Club Graded Assessment depending on interest. If you are interested in being assessed, then please notify on booking.

*On Thursday evening, there will be a group supper at a local pub. This is scheduled for 4.30 pm so we can leave straight from the training venue. This is a dog-friendly pub, and your dogs are welcome to sit with us in the restaurant area, or, if the weather permits, in the garden while we eat.
