Training for Gundog Breeds

Added: Friday, 31 March 2023

Every month the Isle of Wight Gundog club arranges training for Gundog breeds such as Retrievers and Spaniels.  This is for anyone who has a gundog and wants to enjoy having an obedient and well behaved dog. Our training concentrates on basic training and retrieving. All dogs have natural instincts and gundogs are no exception, training is about harnessing and controlling those instinct. Our gundog training takes place throughout the year at a variety of grounds. Socialisa


Dogs Die In Hot Cars

Added: Saturday, 1 February 2020

When attending an event please remember that dogs are extremely sensitive to the heat and should never be left in a vehicle alone, even on a fairly warm or cloudy day. Surprisingly, leaving a car window open or supplying water makes little difference and the dog will suffer, as a car can quickly heat up to around 50°C.
