Hi Scooby is 10 months old and is generally very obedient, my husband would love to train him to gun dog standard but we are not sure how to or were to go to for advice.

Any help would be appreciated :D

Well it really depends on your location. best places to learn are by getting with your local vizsla club, or any pointing breed club close to you that trains for hunting. Depending where you are located a NAVHDA group is excellent as they are comprised of mainly hunters. If none of these are close enough you might want to find a pro trainer (get references) to start working with your dog. I prefer to train my own dog, but if money is not an issue can send the dog to a pro and leave him there. However that will not help so much training yourselves to work the dog properly and not unwind what the dog has learned. Probably best to work with a local pro or a local club so you and your dog learn together. hope this helps

Thanks for the reply jcbuch husband been searching internet for local clubs and by pure look whilst out walking I met a man with 2 terriers who helps organise hunts about 10mins from were we live ! Carl went along with a very hyper scooby :eek: came back with 2 pheasants and £10 to cover fuel and a very tired scooby he'll be going again soon. Cheers :)

Hi Scooby, wherabouts do you live? I notice the pic says newquay. I took Oscar (7 mths) to a shoot in South Devon, he loved it! I only took him for the morning as he was very tired after a couple of fields!
