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 !

CHATSWORTH WORKING TEST

The hottest day of the year didnt stop Jerzi winning first prize today at the Kennel Club's Open Working Test at Chatsworth, Derbyshire.  She was last to go on each test, really nailed the hunting and won herself her own Tuffies Bed as well as numerous sponsors prizes. Great day with lovely competitors and thanks to the  judges, sponsors and KC for super time

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.

FILM STAR EXHAUSTED

Karat was exhausted last night after spending over 4 hours in the heat of the day at the end of a camera lens.  She managed to demonstrate on camera what not to do, (!) as well as what should be done (thank goodness!) for a sequence of short training videos which will soon be uploaded to our AyteeGSPS Youtube channel. We will soon be releasing a digital Training Programme for the young HPR, which will be accompanied with various demos on video.  Great fun to do, but woof, Karat reckons hard work !

K LITTER IN ACTION

The K litter was 9 months old this weekend and like children they are all progressing in their chosen careers..... Juno has just passed Level 1 /Stage 1 Basic Air Scent of Human and Kane has had his first water retrieve.  Karat, well, she is pretty good a carrying everything around, EVERYTHING !
