Ready, Steady, Go!


Collette May of Lead and Listen will be teaching this gundog workshop which is aimed at those that have good basics and a solid retrieve already. Any breeds are welcome to participate.

This workshop will focus on steadiness and calm behaviours in the field. We are in essence teaching them to manage their own arousal levels around their work.

Running in, noise, bad heel work, mouthing the dummy, playing keep away with the dummy; are all behaviours we see in gundogs that are over aroused. No point tackling them as individual issues as it will manifest itself elsewhere, fix running in but then they run off with the retrieve; fix the noise and then they run in; fix the heel work then they become noisy; sound familar?

Arousal levels need to be lowered in order to resolve a lot of these problems.

We will cover steadiness and calmness to dummies, other dogs retrieving, shot, dummy launcher, doubles, walk up, cold game and water!

Cost is £65


Lead and Listen 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 fulfills 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.
