Kennel Club Gundog Training Days

The Kennel Club offers a variety of training days for each gundog subgroup throughout the year. The training days are conducted by expert instructors and, depending on which course you select, cater for different levels of experience. 

Gundog Handlers' Development Programme - Training Days

The Kennel Club is pleased to announce an exciting initiative for Novice Handlers of any age wishing to progress their training with pedigree registered Retrievers and Spaniels.

For those handlers who wish to enter the Kennel Club Advanced Field Trial training day for Retrievers, Spaniels and HPRs please visit the KC Gundog Working Test page.

These training days are aimed at gundog owners who have a genuine interest in working their dogs in the shooting field, either for picking up or as shooting companions and who might like to compete in Gundog Working Tests. The training days are specifically for gundog training and therefore general obedience training will not be covered.

Please note: Dogs must be a minimum of 9 months old on the date of the training day. 

Preference will be given to beginners and novice handlers.

Dates for 2019




Kennel Club Training Day for Retrievers, Spaniels and HPRs

The Kennel Club holds a training day for Retrievers, Spaniels and HPRs at Chatsworth Estate as part of the Kennel Club Gundog Working Test Weekend. The day is intended to help those who intend to compete in Field Trials or Gundog Working Tests and for those who may have already taken the plunge but wish to improve. While the trainers can accommodate a wide range of abilities, it is expected that the dog will already have some basic level of training; sit and stay, walk to heel, recall and be able to retrieve.

More information for the 2019 training day will be available in due course via the  Kennel Club Gundog Working Test page.
