HPR Training Day
April 22 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm
The club are delighted to offer the following HPR opportunities, to be held on the 22nd April 2023 based in Shropshire, not far from Ludlow, with HPR ‘A’ panel judge, trainer and successful field trialer Lee Loveridge.
We will arrange two sessions, one in the A.M. 9am to 12:30, for beginner to novice dogs and handlers. You are not expected to be experienced in the handling of your HPR as this day is about learning and understanding what your dog is potentially capable of and what you as a handler can achieve.
Ideally you will have the basics in place for obedience but help with this can also be discussed if needs be.
This is aimed to give you an understanding of hunting with your dog, whistle commands and retrieving, we may also do some water if we get time.
The afternoon P.M. 1pm to 4.30pm session will be aimed at novice to more advanced dog and handler, although those who attend the morning are more than welcome to continue with an afternoon session.
The emphasis will be to further develop your skills and understanding on hunting, whistle, quartering and retrieving, also with some water if we get time.
The day will be very informal and is not a test of handler or dogs’ ability. This is an opportunity to come along, meet other dogs and handlers and learn more about the working of the HPR breeds.
Please bring your lunch and drinks along with whatever you need for your dog.
Please bring your training aids/dummies for use, ideally mark them with your name.
Each session is one handler-one dog. With a maximum of six handlers per group.
Cost for each session is £35 for BIC members, £45 for non- BIC members.
