Gun Dog Training Classes

The Covid 19 Pandemic and its ongoing realities has impacted on Pets In Partnership causing a halt in our ability to provide gun dog training over winter 2020.  During this time we will, where possible, direct you to alternative training resources, answer any questions and can put you on our Gun Dog contact list for the future.  Please don't hesitate to contact us accordingly.

We have always been incredibly passionate about providing accessible gun dog training for all.  Gun Dog training is a sport that walks hand in hand with good pet dog control and we love to provide this service as much for pet dog owners as anything else.
