Gundog Two is our six-week course of one-hour classes any breed and age of dog who has completed our gundog one course, or has been assessed in a 121.  

This course is designed to improve on the foundation skills taught in gundog one. This varies slightly between breeds but the course will work towards heelwork off lead, sit-stay, introducing the stop whistle, recall and retrieving to hand.  

The course objective is to give both pet and working gundog owners a practical and theoretical knowledge of the basic commands and training methods required to produce an obedient and happy gundog.   

Dogs learn at different rates and are better at some things more than others; therefore, exercises will be adapted to suit each dog’s individual ability.   

Lead and Listen only use science-based positive training methods to reinforce the behaviours that are desirable from our dogs. Positive reinforcement training is force-free, fun and very effective.    
During the course:    

  • Owners will learn how to train their dogs in the basic commands using positive reinforcement methods (clicker and rewards). 
  • Learning will come from demonstrations, explanations and practical application. 
  • Owners will need to practice with their dog, for a short period most days, in order to get the most out of this course. 
  • Owners will build their knowledge and training skills week by week (as will the dog).












By the end of the course dogs should be able to:
 
  • Retrieve dummies both in cover and on short grass with enthusiasm.
  • Retrieve marks and memories. 
  • Understand the left and right directions. 
  • Deliver to hand. 
  • Walk at heel position, off-lead for a reasonable distance.  
  • Sit and stay for a reasonable period of time away from the handler.  
  • Stop on the whistle close to the handler. 
  • Automatically sit at the heel position once the handler stops walking. 
  • Return to the handler when recalled within a medium level distraction environment.
  • Understand the hunt command. Understand the simple commands of touch, settle and mat/place board targeting. 
  • Pivot at heel with the handler when they turn on the spot. 
  • Go round a post at a distance.
