GSPs at Work
These videos show our GSPs working in the field. Aytee dogs pick up on driven shoots every week, they work on commercial walked up days and they also run in Field Trials regularly as well as giving us marvellous sport on our own small shoot. These activities cover all types of country, so they really have to be versatile, obedient and able to produce the birds.
This shows how training prepares our dogs to concentrate amongst the noise and distraction of a typical driven shoot. Our picking up team are all field trial winners except for Jerzi (Aytee Juniper) who was just 7 months old and was there on the lead to just watch and learn!
This video shows Jerzi's progress and was made after many enquiries about handling GSP's on driven shoots. We have tried to give more guidance on picking up and how to get invited back!
In this video Jerzi has progressed from Novice to Open Class in Field Trials, but still needs close management on shoot days to give her the best training opportunities, as she is still relatively young and inexperienced.
This was a feature for the Shooting Show on Horse and Country TV. It featured Aytee Harvest Havoc and Aytee Isadora who were working alongside a very enthusiastic Korthals Griffon (French wirehaired pointer). The film, produced by James Marchington who is well known for his country sport videos shows a great day, allowing HPR’s to do what they are best at – Rough Shooting.
