The Steve Bates training day was a great success, not only did we have excellent ground, some marshes and grassland but also woodland later on in the day. Not only that but we had beautiful weather. Steve was very encouraging and really showed us how to train to get the best out of our dog’s hunting. No excuses now at our next test 🥴 ! Lastly I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr and Mrs Tuckett , the land owners and Kristian the head keeper for allowing us to be there at Endsleigh.
