Complete Training Days

The Complete Training Day is held at our state of the art kennels at Chapel Farm and run by our multiple championship winning gundog trainer David Lisett.

You are not required to bring your dog as the day is about teaching the handler’s training techniques and how to use their body and voice to control the dog.

The day consists of a mix of class discussions and hands on outdoor work with handlers working with Buccleuch dogs.  Handlers are encouraged to make notes prior to attendance listing specific problems requiring assistance and, by making use of David’s experience, learn ways to deal with the issues and prevent them happening.  The classroom time will be especially useful to gain from group experience and feedback.  The group will then move outside and David will demonstrate different training tips and ways to help solve problems, with intervals for discussion.  Lunch will be provided by Buccleuch Gundogs. After lunch the group will continue outside with David continuing to challenge the group with testing situations demonstrating various training techniques with the day concluding with a summary from 3.00pm.

A few examples of feedback from the Complete Training Day.

Just a few lines to say how much I enjoyed the ‘training day’ on Saturday. It was everything I was hoping for and more. The ‘nuggets’ of information never stopped flowing, to see the dogs performing in such challenging circumstances was a bonus.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank David and his team for such a well organised event, accommodating everyone’s dog handling challenges and providing the solutions. Steve J.

A great day. Learnt a lot and looking to book for the future. Shane R.
