Okay, we now have a date for the first of the Midland LF gundog training sessions - Sunday 13th November.
Venue will be near Ashby de la Zouch, Leicestershire.
Beginners/Puppies (min. age 6 months) will be in the morning approx. 9.30am - 12 noon, followed by soup & roll lunch (provided).
Improvers (any age!) will be in the afternoon approx. 1.30pm - 4pm, followed by afternoon tea & cake (provided)
Price £30 per handler/per session.
Places will be strictly limited to just 6 dogs/handlers per class, so that participants get ample help and attention. (If there is overriding demand for Beginners sessions then I will change the format to two Beginners sessions, but I won't be able to gauge this until people start booking places).
- as it says on the tin really! No need for any prior experience, as this will be an 'introduction to gundog work'. The session will begin with a brief demonstration of what can be achieved with gundog training, and then work through all the necessary steps of obedience, before looking at basic retrieving skills.
- the next step up. Dogs should have reasonable basic obedience and heelwork (on and off the lead). They should also be (relatively!) steady to other dogs working, and not be prone to noise (barking and excessive whining). We will be covering marked (seen) retrieves, memory retrieves and introducing basic handling skills/whistle work.
