Running Time: 90 mins
Welcome to Modern Gundog Training. In this series of programmes we will cover every aspect of producing a well-rounded, capable and steady cocker spaniel in the shooting field. We will work with a variety of cockers with different characters and levels of ability. The different stages are approached with dogs facing the challenges for the first time, therefore issues and difficulties organically arise throughout the programmes. We then look to solve these issues using kind, firm, modern methods of training.
In the first instalment we begin our exciting journey towards a trained cocker spaniel. We will take young puppies through the very first stages of training and socialisation, with the emphasis on the dogs having fun and enjoying their early lessons. With these positive foundations in place we will be well positioned to move on to the more advanced training in the rest of the series.
