Gundog & HPR Training
All of our claims of successfully training Gundogs for over 30 years are true. Genuine working gundogs have been part of our lifestyle for many years.
We at Kelford were not only one of the first invited to enter the “Gamefair circuit” to promote correct gundog appreciation, understanding and training, but also educating the audience in the mind pattern of the HPR (The Hunt, Point, Retrieve group of dogs)
Our hard work and endless knowledge of gundogs was the reason we were fortunate enough to be sponsored by numerous major corporations over the years, including Eukanuba, Proctor and Gamble, Nissan, Arden Grange, Autarky and many more. These all approached Kelford as they realized we would be an asset to them.
There are far too many people calling themselves professional ‘gundog trainers’. A number of which have attempted to raise their personal status without substance. Many of these have migrated from the show world, looking to increase their profile and puppy sales.
These so called trainers do more harm than good and the unsuspecting novice handler is often treated disrespectfully and given inadequate advice. Training methods have shocked and appalled many owners when the trainers they have paid for advice, physically abuse their dogs in to conformity.
Physical abuse of dogs is not acceptable for any reason.
Positive results are not obtained through aggressive means. A dog should not work for the handler because it fears the consequences and physical abuse, but should work to please. This Kelford achieves through kind and highly successful handling techniques.
Kelford has held numerous seminars extolling the versatility of the HPR breeds and their ability to excel in all types of gundog work.
Seminars within the falconry circuit have proven highly successful and beneficial for those wanting a steady dog they can rely on.
