BACK TO BASICS DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME
The Back to Basics Development Programme has been put in place to support members who wish to train their dogs for gundog work, whatever their current level of achievement. Through supported and targeted training, the aim is to increase the number of Flatcoats competing in working tests, gaining the Shooting Dog Certificate and ultimately that more people will have the confidence and desire to enter field trials.
Training for existing participants will re-start soon with Phil Bruton, and there may also be room for new participants, please contact Heather Harley [email protected] if interested.
