Scurries welcome both pet and working gundogs.

Emily is passionate about being able to help individuals who own a gundog breed that live at home as a pet as well as those that would like to progress them to working with canvas dummies or out in the field.

Gundog breeds make fabulous family pets and our classes are designed to provide you with the knowledge of how to raise and train them to adapt to the life that you live.

Our group classes are perfect for the pet gundog and are designed to enhance your relationship by using games and exercises which fulfil their natural instincts. The classes will give you all the knowledge to learn about what makes your gundog tick and how to get the best out of them.
