Introductory and Novice Spaniel Training Day- Ninfield, East Sussex

Due to the outbreak of COVID 19 and government guidance BASC took the decision to postpone all training courses scheduled up until the end of June 2020. With the restrictions starting to be lifted in different areas of the UK at different rates, we expect courses to start going ahead from the 9th July in England and at later dates in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. All courses will be reviewed on a daily basis and be led by government advice. I would like to thank all our future course participants for being understanding during this difficult period. If your course was postponed or is going to be postponed you will be contacted by a member of staff. The list of current courses are published on the BASC website and are open to booking subject to further government guidance.

9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Location: Ninfield


A morning of basic gundog training for those with young or novice spaniels, or those interested in finding out about gundog work.

We will start with a short explanation of the work spaniels do in the field, as well as the benefits of gundog training to pet spaniels.

Handlers will learn about different types of retrieve, harnessing the hunting drive, steadiness and control around distractions, and heel work on and off lead.

All exercises will help handlers understand what motivates their dogs and how to reward their dogs.

The morning will be set up to allow dogs and handlers to progress and achieve goals without the use of fear or punishment.

Cost £30 BASC members £40 non-members
