I am passionate about working gundogs and enjoy every aspect of training them and teaching other people to get the best from their gundogs. My interest in training and working dogs began over 30 years ago when I was a teenager. I have owned and trained gundogs since 2009, including cockers, Labradors and HPR's, but my passion is springers which I have run in many tests and trials, winning numerous awards. I have many years' experience of rough shooting, driven shooting and duck flighting.
Since 2014, I have owned and trained German Shepherds. I also specialise in canine obedience and behaviour problems in gundogs and pet dogs.
When I am not beating and picking up with spaniels, I offer one-to-one and group training lessons from beginners to advanced. I aim to create a balanced dog by working with the dog and the handler. I can help in getting your gundog ready for working in the field, working tests and field trials.
Training and working my own gundogs every day gives me an invaluable insight into the various training methods available and gives me chance to perfect my techniques. Mere Brow gundogs has access to fantastic training grounds offering a variety of terrain and training environments.
Our facilities include grounds of rough grass, brambles, woodland and marshland, which are rich with game, allowing me to offer many different scenarios that can challenge any dog. We have access to ponds where we can train and perfect your dog's basic to extensive water work. I have two of my own rabbit pens stocked year round with rabbits.
I am a non-Panel Judge and after passing the Kennel Club Field Trials Rules and Regulations Examination, I am looking to achieve my B Panel status. I am an active committee member of the Gwynedd Spaniel Club and I am the Field Trial Secretary for the Mid-Wales Gundog Society. I am a member of the Kennel Club Accredited Trainers Scheme and am a Kennel Club Accredited Breeder.
Mere Brow Gundogs welcomes young people coming up through the ranks and will make every effort to encourage and help them.
My aim is to train successful working dogs and also provide a happy and positive experience for handlers and dogs.
