In previous years we have been seen at Newark, Nottingham, Herts County, East of England, Great Yorkshire, Alnwick Castle as well as many smaller one day shows. We have been touring the country show scene for about ten years. I like to think after this time I know what the public like to see. At the beginning I used to go into the arena with my best trained dogs and show people how well behaved they all were. I still like to show some well trained dogs, but what I believe the public likes to see is some partly trained dogs not always doing the right thing. Then when a dog misbehaves I can demonstrate how to correct this behaviour. The basic training for a gundog is that same as for a pet dog so this part is of interest to all dog owners not just gundogs. I am foremost a gundog trainer. My usual display times are two half hour slots in the arena and a static trailer display. This is flexible and we can fit into whatever suits the show timetable.

When we are not in the arena we have a static display consisting of my show trailer with a dog run for the dogs to come out and meet the general public. I can then answer any specific training questions that dog owners may want to ask. A full days entertainment for a very reasonable price. Please phone or email for a quote.

Framlingham Country Show - mid April and much better weather bright sunshine and blue skies. Action!  Beginners class with the castle in the background.

The larger shows that we cover includes Newark and Nottingham, Herts County, East of England, Great Yorkshire, Alnwick Castle as well as many smaller one day shows. When not in the ring we have a static display so that the public can come along and see our dogs and discuss any training problems they may be having with their own dog. Our working gundogs are Labradors and Spaniels.

The Team

I sometimes work at the country shows alongside my good friend Ben Potter whose speciality is birds of prey and falconry.
