Healthy & Happy dogs make the best working dogs

 

I generally try and create a stressfree environment for the dogs, making sure they have a regular, daily routine with time for rest as well as exercise. They're  all fed a complete, high quality, grain &  rice free feed which means that no suppliments are ever needed not even during the highly demanding grouse season - You only get what you put in!!

GENERAL FACTS

Their work starts 12th of August and finishes 1st of Febuary

 

The dogs are first and foremost shooting dogs expecting to do an average of 100 days of mainly picking-up but also the odd days of beating and walked-up plus acting as peg dogs whenever I shoot myself. It's a long and demanding season for them so a lot of a attention is paid to the overall management and wellbeing of the dogs ALL year around.

Temperament, Temperament & Temperament!

 

All dogs are house trained and are expected to cope with an indoor environment as well as a kennel. I like the labradors to behave like one, to have a sound temperament and to have the stamina to work and retrieve on land as well as in water all year.
