Fundamental Information

Fundamental information for your training journey, basic exercises plus essential equipment and substitutions if you are just dipping your toe.

Targeting Foundations

Targeting is a great way to achieve some basic behaviours which can be shaped into more advanced behaviours. Targets provide the dog with a focus and when paired successfully with rewards help to keep the dog on task.

Whistle Recall & Focus Foundations

Automatic focus from the dog onto the owner and recall whistle are important foundation exercises for gundog training. This module introduces you to the concepts of how to teach these exercises.

Position Foundations

Following on from some basic exercises covered in fundamentals you will progress these exercises plus learn an important whistle exercise needed for gundog training.

Control Foundations

An important part of gundog training is implementing control, which becomes even more important when the dog is working at a distance. This module introduces you to the foundations of control and distance work in which to build upon

Distance Work Foundations

Gundogs need to learn to work at a distance as it is very likely you will need them to carry out an exercise or redirect them to a different area to find a retrieve item. This module will introduce you to the starting points that you will need for distance work and redirection.

Retrieve Foundations

Retrieving is a combination of skills bought together to form a behaviour chain. If the chain elements are separated out and individually trained you will achieve a stronger finished behaviour. This module will provide you with the basic tools you need to begin building your retrieve.
