The Kipperridge Gundogs showcase the best abilities of gun dogs, as well as being entertaining and a real crowd pleasing experience.
Adrian & Caroline perform with their team of highly trained Labradors and Spaniels. The display involves how to train from the onset a gun dog to the finished article.
The initial demonstration starts with how to teach a puppy or youngster the foundation stages of obedience and retrieve. The audience are amused and captivated by the puppies which are shown in their raw stages of training… this is a fun part of the display were anything can happen!
Adrian then goes onto demonstrate intermittently with a number of dogs at different levels of their training, teaching the audience how to train important exercises such as steadiness to game and stopping on the whistle. Adrian commentates himself throughout the demonstration…. his commentary is not only highly informative but in parts, extremely amusing.
One of the highlights of the show is a short display were Caroline handles her trained Labrador to jump in excess of 6ft over a high jump and 14ft across a long jump!
