How great it is to share a much loved sport and when it includes GSP’s so much the better! We have been visiting some HPR clubs in New Zealand this weekend while travelling and had marvellous welcomes from the Waikato Gundog Club and Auckland and Regions German Shorthaired Pointer Club . Thankyou so much to Helen Sampson & Gail Blankley for organising for us to visit training sessions and we loved watching your lovely dogs work. Good luck to all those competing at the Champs next week!

Proud day and thankyou from Aytee!

It is exactly 2 years since the Aytee GSPs Training Manuals and Youtube Videos were launched and this thankyou message comes all the way from our very first Aytee Trainer in Chile who started with his first dog a GSP called Spotty ! Thankyou so much Felipe for getting us started and we hope that Spotty, who has just had his 2nd birthday, is now doing a great job for you on the Chilean Perdiz !

Aytee GSPs now has over 2000 Youtube subscribers with over 100 Training videos and there are over 1 million minutes viewed as well as over 100 people working their GSPs through our online training manuals. Phew, THANKYOU to everyone and do keep loving, enjoying and training your dogs !

Thanks to the Kennel Club for a wonderful couple of days this weekend at Swinton Estate, Yorkshire training on grouse. The most perfect weather and grounds gave us brilliant game finding conditions.  Karat came on in leaps and bounds, literally !   Special thanks to Rory Major -  fabulous fun and such worthwhile training, including some unexpected points on the geese !


"K" Litter Getting Down to Business - "JUNO" THE SEARCH DOG

A wonderful achievement this weekend for Aytee Kalico better known as “Juno” who has passed out as a Search and Rescue Dog and from now on is qualified to assist Norfolk Constabulary as she is on the list of Lowland Air Scent Search and Rescue Dogs. Handler Ian Danks of the RAF has completed a year of basic training followed by a year of Search and Rescue Training and we are very proud that together they have achieved this high level of work. Ian says of Juno, “she is an amazing family member, and an instrumental asset the county now has at its disposal.” We say WELL DONE JUNO !! GO GIRL !!

A truly amazing walkup day today with some crack shooting over a great gang of dogs. Thanks to Sara with Barley and Rosa, Hari with Myrtle and our own Jerzi and wonderful Dora who discovered' ‘ Woodcock Central’ on the Quidenham Estate giving us some of the best sport possible. Great memories for the last week of the season. Massive thanks to Philip Thorrold for such brilliant ground and Nick Elsdon of Anglia Sporting for setting up another great day..

A fantastic sunny day walking up with friends over salt marshes, reed beds, arable farmland and through woods, seeing every type of game imaginable. Fantastic work from the guns and dogs and thanks to Nick Elsdon of Anglia Sporting for setting up another great day.


Karat came away with a First at the N&SHPRFT Club’s Novice Trial at Acle today, pointing a pair of woodcock and then completing an HPR on a wily cockbird. It was a great result for a dog that has been a handful to say the least. I daren’t say we are getting there, but I think we might be. Thanks to everyone involved and well done to the other award winners. It was a great day in the gallery with friends……and what do you know, she won the Aytee Cup !


Well done to Aytee owner Hari Lampart and Myrtle, on your lovely article in the New Year edition of Shooting Times. Lovely pics, we would have put you on the front cover! Go girls …. wishing you lots of luck for 2019 🙂
