The Gundog Club is a great resource for gundog owners everywhere and provides the UK’s National Gundog Training Scheme.
The Graded Training Scheme divides the process of training your gundog into six separate stages with awards at each level along the way. To earn your award, you need to successfully complete a non-competitive Field Test.
Great for pets too
Pet gundogs that are not intended for the shooting field can take the first four tests without coming into contact with game, as the first four grades are all test on dummies.
The grades take each dog through the process of training a gundog from beginner to master, and are a great way to prepare a gundog for the shooting field or to simply achieve a better behaved pet.
To help you along the way, the Gundog Club sell training guides, written by me, each one aimed at helping you pass a particular Grade. The proceeds from these books all go to The Gundog Trust. This is the first in the training series: Passing Grade One
Perhaps most importantly the Gundog Club provide a growing register of Accredited Gundog Instructors
. These are all experienced gundog trainers that have undertaken to help you train your gundog using positive and humane methods of training.
