Geoff Shore will cover everything from the background and history of spaniel training to modern day training and field skills.  Its a great way to better understand and work with your spaniel.

Training and Field Skills

The trainer will show you how working through the Graded Training Scheme will help you keep on target with your dog and enable you to train in achievable stages.

The day will cover hunting and retrieving, demonstrating some of the more advanced training activities that can be used to test your dogs handling skills and explain how you can achieve them yourself.

To book a place and get directions, please contact Geoff Shore directly using this form: contact Geoff Shore

Places are limited to a maximum of ten people and Geoff is a popular instructor.  So it is a good idea to book early.  One dog per handler.  Places issued on a first come first served basis.
