Training Your Versatile Hunting Dog

We welcome all, from the young to the old and all levels of abilities of dog and owner. It’s not just about training, attending our training days is a great way to meet like minded owners and make great friends.

We strive to hold official training sessions once a month, focusing on all aspects of the hunting tests.

If possible, we will also include informal training days where the club will provide the venue, and members may bring their dogs to train according to their needs. Certain conditions may apply according to the property owner’s wishes.
