FULL TRAINING DAYS

Kirkbourne Spaniels hold  full day training events every month.  These training days include novice, intermediate, advanced and Spaniel days.

 

The training  days are designed to build you and your dog’s confidence.  We work in groups and the day is structured with plenty of rest breaks.

 

You will come away feeling refreshed, with new  goals for you, and you dog.

 

Our training days are held all over Yorkshire, and include the beautiful grounds of Aske Estate Richmond.  Every training day has a professional photographer attending to capture the day. To view a selection of videos from various days click here

SPANIEL TRAINING DAYS

Working a spaniel in the correct manner is paramount to a great dog ,we will show you how to correctly hunt your dog in many environments.  We will also look at dropping to shot, and dropping to flush.

 

 

COLD GAME TRAINING DAYS

This is where we are nearly there with our dogs, we have now got full control ,and we need to step it up to introduce the dog to game.  These days are very popular, and always sell out fast.

 

 

DOG NO GUN - HALF TRAINING DAY

OK we are nearly there and your dog needs to experience the flushing of birds and the hunting out of birds.  These half days are a great introduction to beating with your dog without the pressure of the guns watching on.

 

SHOOT TRAINING DAYS

When in season, we hold shoot training days where we walk up with the guns and the game is shot and we all get our turn to retrieve the shot game.  Very popular with the advance handlers wanting to progress into tralling and shooting.

 

Notice of days will be posted in our facebook group and via our blog.  To book onto any of the above days please visit the training area in the shop HERE
