Gundog Club training is divided into six achievable stages. The first goal on your gundog training journey is to reach the standard of  the Grade One Field Test.

This gives you a precise set of simple standards to aim for. But before you begin, there are four questions you should be able to answer.

  1. Do you have a suitable dog?

  2. Do you know your category?

  3. Do you have some basic equipment?

  4. Should you book some lessons?

1. A suitable dog: Not sure if your dog is suitable for gundog training?  Worried he might be too old,  or the wrong breed?  Find out here...

2. Know your category: There are three different 'styles' of training to choose from.  You need to know what category of gundog you own in order to choose the right style of training.   Which category is my dog?

3. Basic equipment: You will need just a few items of very simple equipment to make a start with your training. If you are going to start training by yourself, without an instructor, you will also need a well laid out reference book.  Read about equipment and books...

4. Book some lessons: If you are confident, you can begin to train your dog by yourself, following the  Gundog Club guidebooks.  At some point however, you are likely to need some lessons. Many students find it helpful to have some lessons early on in the training process to get them off on the right foot.  Gundog Club Training Lessons...
