Gundog Training Awards

The aim of the training awards Bronze, Silver and Gold is not to be competitive in any way. The awards are structured to give dog and handler the skills as a partnership they will need for the shooting field, working gundog tests or accomplished companions.
The final goal would be to take and pass the Kennel Club Working Gundog Certificate (WGC). The skills needed by dog and handler are complex; the graded courses will enable the handlers to attain these skills, starting from the very basics in the Bronze level to advanced skills in Gold.
The numerous training aspects and methods will advance the handler dog partnership; the course will focus on the basic steadiness, communication, development and progression were handlers can demonstrate their dogs working ability. This sequence will be assessed at each level, by an independent appraiser.
