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 at 4.00pm.

A few examples of feedback from the 2018 training day.

 I just wanted to thank David, Lauren & Team for a fantastic day at the training day on Saturday. The weather was far from perfect but David’s knowledge and ability to get that over was second to none. I have taken away may things from the day and hope to remember them all and put them into practice! Robert E.

I would like to thank David and his team for the amazing training day. We were made feel very welcome by David and his tips and training advice were outstanding, this was the best training day that I have been to. Thanks again. Roy S.

Thank you to David and the Team at Buccleuch Gundogs and Chapel Farm. The training day on the 10th of March was fantastic – so much learnt from David! Really Great!    David B.
