Gun Dog Training Weekend

Gun Dog Training Weekend

Young spaniel learning to retrieve across water

Details

For owners of working dogs that would like to understand and control the natural instincts of a working dog in the company of other dogs. This week-end will suit both experienced and inexperienced handlers with inexperienced dogs.You may not have had a working bred dog before but if you are interested in finding out more about working your dog and how to go about it, then you are very welcome. Training your dog whilst understanding and working with its natural instincts will help you get the best from your dog.

Our course will suit most gun dogs. Dogs must be at least 6 months of age. Normally we do not take dogs over 4 years old.

Ty Gwyn has all the facilities for you and your dog to learn in a natural countryside environment. Your dog has an enclosed yard, retrieving corridor, fields and a variety of cover including scrub and wooded areas and water in which to learn. You have comfortable accommodation, good food and at the end of the day you can relax in our Cruck Barn with a glass of wine and discuss the day with like minded people before having a home cooked supper.

Margaret Ward will help you and your dog to learn the basics in the company of other dogs. The courses are restricted to six dogs so that everyone has plenty of tuition and attention.

You and your dog will learn:

The golden rules of gun dog training
Manners (just your dog!)
Sit and stay
Walking to heel on and off the lead
Recall
Basic Retrieving
Steadiness
Hunting

The Cruck Barn is a self contained, purpose built meeting centre. When you need time and space to think, communicate and create ideas, The Cruck Barn provides a sanctuary that will help deliver an effective outcome to meetings, group sessions and social and cultural events. It is well equipped with projector, screen, flip chart and free WiFi. There is a small kitchen and two WCs. We provide teas and coffees, biscuits and cakes and buffet lunches or suppers. The Cruck Barn can be laid out in a formal style or more informally with sofas and armchairs. As we are away from the busy bustle of town, peace and quiet prevails and delegates are welcome to walk around the garden and farm for a de-stressing break.

From the North via A44 and A483 from Crossgates.
Come into Llandrindod Wells, go past the Metropole Hotel (large green hotel on your left), take the first turning left past the Metropole, signposted The Lake. Almost as soon as your turn left, turn right between the chemists and the Automobile Palace. Follow that road out past the lake to a T junction. Turn left, go up hill past golf course, round bad bend, past bungalows on your left, keep going for about 1/4 mile and then follow the road as it bends sharply to the right (do not take the road in front which has a no through road sign). Look for the finger post that says Ty Gwyn Farm. Follow the lane and go through a metal gate (normally open), down the hill to a black gate, turn in just through the black gate into the yard.
Ty Gwyn Farm is the only farm on the right after the golf course. Don't go into Ty Gwyn Bach, which is well before you come to us.

From the South via A483 from Builth Wells.
As you come into Llandrindod Wells you pass the garage on your right, then you come to a wide right hand turn opposite the Old Grosvenor Bakery signposted The Lake and Golf Course. Take that right turn and go out past the lake and up hill past golf course, round bad bend, past bungalows on your left, keep going for about 1/4 mile and then follow the road as it bends sharply to the right (do not take the road in front which has a no through road sign). Look for the finger post that says Ty Gwyn Farm. Follow the lane and go through a metal gate,(normally open) down the hill to a black gate, turn in just through the black gate into the yard.

Ty Gwyn Farm is the only farm on the right after the golf course. Don't go into Ty Gwyn Bach, which is well before you come to us.

Ty Gwyn Farm is about 2.5 miles from Llandrindod Wells.

Beware if using SATNAV as it often takes you to the bungalows instead!
