WELCOME TO OUR NEW WEBSITE

Welcome to our new website and the launch of the Aytee GSPs Training Programme.  On our training page you will find information on the first 3 levels of a 5 level programme which is designed to help a GSP owner train their dog.   Starting on a Beginners Level 1,  it will go right through to Level 5 which will finish with the  training for an Open Field Trial Dog or competent shooting companion.    There are also lots of new short training videos (video page) associated with this training. 

The programme does not explain every different way of achieving a task, rather it describes the method that I use to train my dogs.  It is, of course, not the only way, but with a happy and patient approach combined with the necessary firmness and a love of dogs,  it works.  You are invited to check in with me on email if you have any queries as you work through the Levels and more associated videos will be added as time goes by.    My principles of training are Be clear, Be consistant, Be firm and above all, Be kind.    I Look forward to talking to you about training your dog !

"THE FIELD" GUNDOG AWARD GOES TO JERZI

Aytee Juniper better known at "Jerzi", has won the prestigious FIELD GUNDOG AWARD 2017 for Outstanding Work by a Pointing Breed in the 2016/17 Season.    We are very proud of her achieving this recognition and would like to thank the people who nominated her.  Jerzi will receive her award at Burghley Horse Trials on 31st August !  

HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY

The "K" LITTER is one year old today.  Happy birthday them all !

Unfortunately,  Karat is celebrating with a cough which she caught at her latest Championship Show.  Completely maddening as Aytee dogs are grounded for the time being and missing lots of grouse work.  They are all well but sound like a herd of seals !   She is amusing herself by selecting and picking pears!

BUSY WEEKEND

BUSY WEEKEND

Two warm ups for competitions in a few weeks were well worth the trips this weekend, with Karat winning a Puppy Stakes class at the local Gt Yarmouth and district Limited Show and Jerzi a 4th in Open amongst a huge entry in the Hungarian Viszla Working Test in Oxfordshire.    We got baked at one and soaked at the other, but both great fun, a big thankyou to all organisers.
