Gundog Training

Labrador and Cocker Spaniel training . Due to the Coronavirus we are unable to take dogs in for training as it stands at he moment -thank you .

Jack’s training methods are used to bring out the natural game finding abilities in all the gundogs he trains. The respect the gundogs have for him is there for all to see.

We take dogs in for training (with boarding) and can help train them towards the owners requirements. At Cuckavalda we have the advantage of being able to take dogs out into a shooting environment, thus providing valuable experience out in the field. Get in touch to discuss your requirements.
