Gundog training / KC WGC
I am a fully qualified dog trainer (ADTB) with over eighteen years experience running pet dog training classes and the KC GCDS. For the last nine years I have been offering gundog training for all breeds but I specialise in training Labradors and other retriever breeds. I have been picking up with five of my home bred Labradors on various shoots for ten years and counting and they have also worked the beating line. Four of them have passed the Kennel Club working gundog certificate (WGC) on game after being assessed on a shoot day picking up. I offer group training and one to one sessions and I am qualified to assess dogs for the Kennel Club Working Gundog Certificate. I only use reward based training methods and aim to make the training fun. I can teach your dog the basics to eventually going on a shoot either beating or picking up. I have access to two different training grounds which are in, or very close to Royal Wootton Bassett. I can supply cold game and gundog training equipment.
One to One training
One to one sessions are ideal if you have a particular training issue that you need help with, without the distraction of other people or dogs. I can help with the basics such as recall, walking to heel and steadiness to more advanced training such as direction work, correct delivery to hand and introducing your dog to shot. Your training requirements will dictate which training venue we use - either Royal Wootton Bassett or Broadtown. One to one sessions can be paid for in advance on or the day. For sessions cancelled within 12 hours or missed appointments a cancellation fee of £10 will be charged.

Kennel Club Working Gundog Certificate
The aim of the Working Gundog Certificate (WGC) is to provide credible proof that the handler and dog are a competent partnership, with the qualities to fulfil the general requirements of work on a shoot. The certificate may be gained at a variety of different events so that all aspects of a dog's work in the shooting field can be observed. The certificate can be taken on dummies or game and will be issued by the Kennel Club and will list those tasks that were achieved on the day. Successful partnerships will have the distinction of having their names published in the Field Trial newsletter.
I am qualified to assess up to 3 dogs - either on dummies or game and I can organise a test day and supply the paperwork. Please note - I need at least 2 weeks notice to book a day with the Kennel Club. I charge an assessment fee and group discounts are available. For groups of 3 or more, I can bring another qualified assessor.
