Junior Gundog Training Classes are suitable for dogs who have already developed the skills that we train in Beginner Gundog Class.
At this level we focus heavily on the basic skills that are needed as part of regular gundog work and provide your dog with a chance to have plenty of fun doing what he loves.
Our Junior Gundog Training classes run on a continuous, or ongoing basis. Unlike other dog trainers, we don’t operate courses or terms with any of our classes. The benefit of this is that you can join as soon as space in class allows, and can continue your gundog training in this class for as long as you want. Whenever you and your dog are ready, you can then progress to the next level, which is our Intermediate Gundog Class.
This class will prepare your gundog to perform the following tasks::
- Heelwork: (off-lead) 30 yards
- Sit/stay: 3 minutes with owner at 30 yards
- Recall Whistle: 30 yards
- Stop Whistle: whilst walking at owner’s side
- Marked Retrieves: from cover at 50 yards
- Delivery of Retrieve: to hand
- Directional Control: Casting Left and Right
- Use of Hunt Whistle

As we will be outdoors, your dog will be in his natural environment, however he will have plenty of distractions that you will teach him to ignore.
