Stour Valley Gundog Training Centre is within The Melford Hall Estate in the beautiful Suffolk countryside. The Chad Brook runs at the bottom of one of the woods we use for training.  Not only is this the perfect environment for training, its very picturesque. We have woodland and cover ideal for spaniels and areas to suit Labradors and long retrieves.  

We can cater for all your training needs; novice through to advanced training.   We have many different areas for all types of training including a large 2.5 acre well stocked rabbit pen.  A rabbit pen is an excellent additional training aid.  It gives you the opportunity to concentrate on steadiness as well as building up hunting drive and enthusiasm if necessary.  The pen is available to hire on an hourly rate privately** or as part of a 1:1 training session.  There will be an additional charge for any game pegged.

 We can use starting pistols, dummy launchers and shot guns for more advanced training.  We can also progress to introduction of the gun, once you and your dog are ready, having permission to shoot on this part of the estate.  We have an all weather car parking area big enough for 12 or more cars.  Our site also has an old barn ideal for training inside to establish the basics, or to get out of the weather.
