What is Garden Gundog Training?
Garden Gundog Training was created in the peak of the COVID-19 lock down when we were all restricted in our movements.
It is based on the idea that all training (for any sport) can begin being taught at home and in the garden.
All training needs a starting point and there is no better place to start than at home, especially for gundog training.
The name was inspired by a dear friend and colleague Cristen Brown from Ruff Diamond Dog Training during one of our many chats during the lock down period. The first course was delivered via webinar’s each week and was very well received so the work was progressed.
How is it taught?
The primary method is clicker or marker training and using the power of R+ (positive reinforcement) using a variety of rewards.
Garden Gundog Training: Foundation Course sets out the initial course sets out all of the foundations needed and there are more courses planned in the future.
