Gun Dog Training in Sudbury, Suffolk – About me

My wife and I share our lives with 5 English Springer Spaniels.  Along with buying puppies we have rescued and re-homed dogs.

All my dogs work through the shooting season, both on local shoots and on commercial shoots.  They spend the “closed season” with us at the yard with my wife and her horse, training, long country pub walks and snuggling up with us when the day is done. You really can have the best of both worlds – a working pet!

Over the last few years I have been asked more and more to help train people and their dogs without using harsh methods. I have been to several different trainers and seen many different methods used; some of which I do not condone. This has lead to me to train my dogs with a different approach and be mindful of the techniques I use.

We run regular graded courses for basic obedience, beating, picking up/peg dog and rough shooting.


I am always happy to demonstrate myself working my dogs.  Please just ask at the time of booking.
