Hi there we are new to the site and have a black lab called Murphy he is nearly a year old and have done a fair amount of training with him,and he is really willing to learn.
I would like to train him to the gun but have no real experience but want to learn.
I have been out clay shooting with him and he is not gun shy at all.
Does anyone have any ideas as to where i should be looking at for places i could go with him to train him as i realy want to be involved.He responds to the whistle for basic commands.
We are living in Newcastle upon Tyne and i hear this is a good shooting area.
Any help really appreciated.

Hi there
I’m down South, and am a member of URC. They do have a Northern Branch, but don’t know how far from you that is.
I’ve listed a few below so I would give them a call and see where they train. A lot of clubs here stop training once the shooting season starts and don’t start up again till the spring – not sure if it’s the same where you are.
Hope you find something – let us know how you get on.
