This group is for progressive retriever and hunting retriever breeds. The focus will be on combining all their gundog skills in a group environment.
Date: Thursday 3 February
Time: 2pm to 3.30pm Location: Haslemere, Surrey
These monthly group classes are designed to help you bring together the full range of skills needed to work your gundog in the field, or if they are a pet, to ensure that they have an outlet for their natural instincts.
These sessions are suitable for more experienced retriever (e.g. labradors) and hunting retriever (e.g. spaniels) breeds, who have passed their Gundog Club Grade 2, or are working reliably at that level.
The level is progressive, and is designed for anyone working towards The Gundog Club Grade 3 and above, plus Novice Dog/Novice Handler Working Tests.
Unlike our progressive skills workshops, these monthly group classes will not be focused on one particular topic. Instead, we will be looking at how everything works together in real-life by setting up realistic scenarios.
Each session the aim will be to help you improve your handler skills, while also helping to improve and proof your gundog's heelwork, self control, retrieve, stop and recall etc. behaviours in a group environment.
It is up to you whether you attend the whole course or just book individual sessions.
You do not need to have attended any of the previous sessions to book on, although we do recommend that if you have never trained with Teach Your Gundog before you book an initial 121 session so we can assess exactly where you are at with your training and which group class will be most suitable for your individual dog.
