Any members (or prospective new members) keen to start training but unsure as to whether they’re ready (see training Level section below), or unsure of what’s involved, are encouraged to come along with their dog and watch the training sessions, meet the Training Co-ordinator and Trainers and have an informal chat about how to progress.  A controlled introduction for young dogs who can sit on lead and watch a session.


  • Your spaniel heelwork is not expected to be extremely precise but the dog must be clearly under control.

  • The dog should hunt remaining under close control. 

  • The dog must recall promptly and once seated be steady to the ”thrown“ dummy.

  • The dog must have experienced and be confident with the sound of shot and working in the presence of other dogs. 

If you need further clarification please contact the training co-ordinator.
