This course is designed for those wanting to progress through grade two of The Gundog Club's national Graded Training Scheme and will prepare you for passing a series of graded Field Tests at this level.
The Gundog Club Field Tests are open to all gundogs regardless of their ancestry. Pedigree papers are not required, and cross-bred dogs are welcome to enter the scheme. Pet gundogs are warmly welcomed and encouraged to participate.
The Gundog Club is working to raise standards in gundog welfare through the promotion of modern reward-based training methods, and the provision of caring and competent Accredited Instructors.
Until the arrival of the Gundog Club, all popular national gundog tests in the UK were competitions for fully trained gundogs. The Gundog Club’s Graded Training Scheme has provided the first opportunity for gundog owners to have their dogs tested against a consistent national standard, instead of against other dogs.
Testing the dog throughout the entire training process helps to motivate learners and to encourage them to enjoy and complete the gundog training journey. Graded training helps to focus learners on training in small and achievable steps which in turn enables the gundogs to benefit from modern reward-based training methods.
