Sinead is training to become a Kennel Club Accredited Instructor in Dog Training and Canine Behaviour (KCAI) which is the first and only scheme for instructors in the UK to be approved by City & Guilds NPTC.

Sinead has been training her own gundogs for over 6 years with a great deal of success; a Diploma of Merit in the 2015 IGL Retriever Championships is certainly an achievement.

1-1 hourly sessions - suited around individual requirements- £25 per session

Residential training is offered, contact Sinead for prices and discuss specific requirements.

Gundog demonstrations are available. I have done demonstrations for local gun clubs, shows and bigger events such as the Countryside Day at Askham Bryan College. Contact Sinead to discuss requirements and availability.

Group training and lessons can be offered on other ground if people wish to book me and/or the dogs for an event/ training. Contact Sinead for further details.

Introduction to Shoot Days

Available to Retriever/Spaniel breeds only (no HPR)

Small, friendly real life shoot day where you will experience
putting all your training into practice under the guidance of Sinead.

Teaching about shoot etiquette and ensuring the dog is under control at all times
to make sure the handler is prepared as a picker up/ handler of a peg dog.

Your dog will experience:

  • Socialisation with other dogs and people
  • Experience the gun bus and trailers, get used to travelling close to other dogs and people
  • Standing behind the guns in a picking up/ peg dog situation – steadiness to falling (running!) game.
  • Walking up through sugarbeet, mustard, woods and other crops
  • Retrieving dead and potentially live game in the shoot environment – practicing handling 

Max 2 handlers per day
Number of retrieves depends on the day and the dog’s ability
