Hunting Retrievers Gun Dogs with Sue Watkins, 3-Hour Workshop

August 20, 2023 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

£30 – £60

I’m pleased to be hosting Sue Watkins, Connected Canines for this Hunting Retriever Gun Dogs workshop.

This workshop is for hunting retrievers such as:

  • Spaniels: Cockers/ Springers/ Welsh etc.
  • HPR’s (Hunt, Point/ Retrieve): German Pointers/ Vizslas, Weimeraners etc.

The workshop will help teach you an outlet for your dog’s natural behaviours.

With a bit of time and patience, these are games that you can take out and about on walks.

This gives both your dog and you, some interactive and constructive fun!

In this workshop you will learn:

  • A variety of whistle cues, how to build and strengthen them
  • Retrieve patterns and types of retrieves
  • Hunting and hunting patterns with the hunting retrievers
  • Improving lead walking by pairing it with desired activities

Although both workshops will have a structure there will be room for participants to talk about and explore areas of training that interest or challenge them.

We will also spend some time looking at what participants dogs were bred to do.

My dog is so easily distracted and doesn’t do well in a group class – can I spectate instead?

You will learn lots of valuable information by both taking part with your dog, or watching as a spectator too.

About the training venue

The workshop will be held outside in my fenced training field.

We will go ahead if light rain/ wind is forecast, but you would be notified of cancellation in the event of very bad weather.
