Gundog Trainers Academy Membership

Online training designed to help you get your ethical gundog training journey off to the best start.

There has never been an easier way to get started with ethical, science-backed, non-coercive gundog training... no matter where in the world you live!

Do you feel overwhelmed by all the conflicting advice on the internet and social media over what is the best way to teach your gundog the foundation skills?

Are you tired of being given outdated advice and being expected to correct or punish your gundog if they don't get things right?

Has your confidence been knocked by a bad training experience?

Do you have a puppy or young dog who is a gundog breed and would benefit from putting their natural hunting instincts to good use?

Are you looking to work or compete with your gundog? OR are you looking to develop a solid bond with your gundog breed while teaching them to be well behaved family pets?

Do you feel like everyone else has secret gundog whispering powers meanwhile you're left wondering why your training isn't working and what you're doing wrong?

Even if you have never trained a gundog before, there's no need to worry. We'll walk you through everything you need to know. From the learning theory and how to use a clicker, to identifying what motivates your individual gundog, to the equipment you'll need, how to plan your training and the practical steps needed to teach your gundog the foundation skills.

Once inside the Gundog Trainers Academy Membership you will learn how to teach your gundog to...

  • Focus on you in the environment.
  • Recall (come when called) quickly, every time.
  • Target a placeboard.
  • Walk at heel.
  • Retrieve with confidence and return with purpose.
  • Delivery to hand.
  • Marks, memories and blinds.
  • Casting and directions (left, right and go back).
  • Sit and stay/wait reliably.
  • Stop whistle.
  • Hunt with style and purpose.
  • And much, much more.

What our current members had to say...

"Access to learning online is great as allows time to watch and really understand the aims before getting your dog out to train."
"With the help of this training and the associated group we understand him a lot more and when we can push things and when to just call it a day and go home!"
"I did not know much about training a gundog so with GTA membership, reading a lot, and participating in workshops I went from zero to quite good."
"Previously we understood the basics, but this has helped take us to a much more detailed level."
"If you want the best relationship with your gundog, you need to understand them and train them in a way they love, this membership will give your dog the life they deserve."
"It also helped me learn how to use other reinforcement other than treats."
"This course has given the structure needed, and will be applied in full with my next pup."
"The material is clear and concise. It has re-enforced to me that gundog training can be done with a clicker, and to a high standard."
"It's a great way to access two positive gundog trainers without needing to travel miles!"
"It opened my eyes to new ways of training."
"The new tutorials that come every month as they give me a set of things to work on for several weeks."
