2024 GROUP TRAINING DATES

Fortiscorde Gundogs group training courses** are designed to be relaxed and informative and open to all working gundog breeds.  Our courses are aimed at both individuals who plan to ‘work’ their gundogs as well as those who just want to use gundog training to provide a stimulating environment in which to train a calm and obedient companion.

EVENING GROUP TRAINING – Tuesdays 7pm – 9pm

Making the most of the long evenings, from Tuesday 14th May to 21st August we host our popular ‘Evening Training’ every Tuesday evening 7-9pm.   Training topics will be varied and sessions are designed to practice, challenge and develop gundog and handler skills. We will try and offer as much variety during these group sessions from novice through to advance and simulated walk-ups, hunting and retrieving etc to give everyone an opportunity to learn, whatever their level.  These evening sessions are a great top-up in addition to your 1-2-1 training and are a fabulous social event with a drop of cider (non-alcoholic options too!) and home-cooked sausage rolls afterwards.

Always a sell-out – booking in advance is essential.  Cost for evening training and Boot Camp is £35 per dog per session.
