Gundog Training Holidays

Choose between 3 and 5 days of gundog training at Coed Y Gaer Fawr. Collette May of Completely Gundogs will be helping you and your dogs improve your knowledge and gain experience.  Accommodation for the handlers is available in the 2 bedroom and the new 1 bedroom cottage plus 3 caravans and space for camping and your own caravan with electric hook up.

Dogs need to have a good recall, be keen to retrieve, happy with shot, mostly steady and at a good novice/intermediate level to get the most out of this opportunity. 

Dogs will be expanding on their knowledge of marking, taking memories and blinds in different and diverse terrain. In addition a cold game session, a trip up the mountain for fab views and training, a river session (weather permitting) and remote launchers. The social side of the holiday is as important as the training to most handlers so we try to go out to dinner 1 night and have a takeaway or BBQ at the farm another night too.

The Grounds

The 15 acres surrounding the house is their private ground which is set out to aid in improving the dogs confidence and challenging those that are ready. Obstacles at different ability levels, long grass, mown strips, hunting circles, jumping pen, adjustable log jumps and a crop field. there are also two woods on the ground including an open wood for the retrievers and a thicker wood which is great for the spaniels. 

Access to 100's of acres on the neighbours mountain, plus an additional 30 acres surrounding the farm including a fantastic rough field with great features and natural obstacles including hedges and ditches is also available. Weather dependent there is also a private section of the river Severn and many other terrains in nearby Caersws is also an option.
