The course is suitable for young gun dog breeds, whether they are going to be primarily pets or working towards time in the shooting field. The syllabus has been developed by Lez Graham MA, of The Pet Gundog, and the graded courses can take you from novice through to advanced level, encouraging you to develop your relationship with your dog and build up a great working partnership while having fun, with the opportunity to take optional assessments at the completion of each course.

The Beginner Course will cover the basics of training including walking on a loose lead, steadiness, recall, basic retrieving and the use of the whistle with an optional assessment at the end of the six weeks.

There will be a maximum of 8 dogs and handlers, and the cost of the course of six 90-minute sessions is £120.

Following on from the Beginner Pet Gundog course, the Novice curriculum moves up a level, giving you increased confidence to work with your dog, building up your skills and introducing new activities to keep your on-going training fun both for you and your dog.  You will find the basic skills you have achieved on the Beginner Course being stretched further with more complex retrieves and exercises to keep up the interest and excitement for your dog and for you.  For this course you will need to be confident that your dog can be steady around other dogs and people and able to retrieve a dummy or toy to hand.  There will be an optional final assessment at the conclusion of the course.

There will be a maximum of 6 dogs and handlers, and the cost of the course of six 90-minute sessions is £120.
