This class is for pet dogs and uses modern, positive training. This class is not for people who want to go on professional shoots with their dogs but for people who just want to have a bit of fun with their gundog breed. We will be teaching your dog on lead heelwork, to sit and stay, to come when called, to stop on the whistle, a basic retrieve and to be calm and settled when needed. We will be doing all the things your gundog loves to do but under control instead of being self-employed! This 6 week course is for any breed but especially gundog breeds such as cockers, springer spaniels, weimeraners, vislas, labradors, cockapoos, labradoodles etc, however this is NOT a puppy class. If you have a pup under 20weeks of age please join the puppy class.
Due to Covid-19 We are still limiting class sizes at present. Maximum of 2 people per dog and no children under 12yrs of age.

From Newton Abbot: Take the Totnes main road (A381). Follow the road to the mini roundabout by the cemetery. Turn right to Ogwell. Follow this road down into the dip and then all the way to the top of the hill. At the top you get to a junction (Ogwell Green), take the first turning on the right, signposted East and West Ogwell. Come down the hill into the village and take the first turning on the right, there will be a phone box and village memorial hall on your left, (if you get as far as the Jolly Sailor pub you have gone too far). Stay on the road for approximately 3/4 mile. You will now be on a country lane leaving the village behind, (Croft Road). Keep going and you will find us on the right hand side 3/4 mile from the village hall and approximately 2 miles (about 10 minutes) from Newton Abbot.
