Gundog Group Classes:
Cunningshot vision for gundog work is to create a mutual relationship built upon positive methods between handler and dog where you can push your dog to their instinctual boundaries and control them while doing it.
A gundog shouldn't work 'for' you they should work 'with' you. Cunninghsot's aim is to create Gundogs that are predictable in the most unpredictable situations. Having a dog ready for shoot days and competitions is what Cunningshot strive to help all of handlers achieve whether you are novice or experienced, young or older we have a programme and training methods that have been tested with our own successful gundogs as well as many clients. Through Cunningshot's group classes we can offer regular formal training to ensure the foundations are correctly in place to be built upon to more advanced training.
These sessions are primarily for gundog breeds but can be suitable for other breeds. The focus; the foundation of gundog work from whistle commands to the basics of retrieving, hunting and all important steadiness.
This class is the next stage up for gundog work and is usually for dogs that are retrieving back to hand and familiar with whistle work. The aim of this group is to build on the foundations from novice groups and lay ground work for moving into the advanced group. This group has both intended working dogs and pet gundog breeds.
This class is for advanced gundogs that are already working or competing in the field or pet gundog breeds at the same level. These dogs are steady to retrieves and advanced whistle commands. The idea of this group is to advance the dogs further to cold game, steady to live game and gunshot.
