Collette May of Completely Gundogs and Lead and Listen will be teaching this online masterclass on living with your high drive pet gundog. Collette has 3 working labs, a springer spaniel (recently adopted at 18 months) and a chihuahua cross. The youngest lab and springer are both high drive gundogs that needed a different approach to training than her other dogs. This personal experience together with teaching hundreds of these dogs in classes for the last 7 years has given Collette a vast amount of knowledge and understanding of these challenging dogs.
This 90 minute masterclass will focus on learning how to harness your dog’s natural instincts rather than fight against them.
This masterclass will look at answering these questions. We will explore the motivation behind the behaviours and how to get control over them. This involves exploring the gundog breeds and looking at exactly what they were bred to do. By harnessing these innate behaviours and putting them on cue you will end up with a fantastic relationship, a responsive dog on walks and a happy content gundog. We will look at what exercises to train, types of rewards to use, motivation and the effect of the environment on their behaviour.

Collette May only uses 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.
Collette has used these methods with great success to train her three Labrador Retrievers and won numerous awards in gundog working tests, a hugely rewarding hobby for her and her dogs, in which they have to work together as a team to get the job done. It fulfils the dogs’ natural drive to retrieve game which makes for happy and content gundogs. She regularly works at a shoot and competes in field trials, which are the top level of gundog competition.
