I pictured some photos of the Clementwood gun dogs a little while ago, but really need a few more with them carrying actual game. So out we went again yesterday, on a cold, dank day, to have another go. The light was horrendous so I didn’t get everything I wanted, but we have enough now for the website to be put together.
These are working dogs, used at Shoots on a regular basis as well as in trials. The labrador is a young dog and just getting used to working with real game – in fact some of these shots (‘scuse the pun) are of his first retrieves with pheasants. The spaniels are more experienced and are being sharpened up ready for trialling this year.
Graham is an excellent trainer, based in the Derbyshire/Leicestershire/Nottinghamshire area and takes residential dogs for gun dog training, as well as doing one to one training to enable handlers to get the most out of their dogs. For more information, see his (new) website here.
I’m not allowed to use the ‘hat’ one on the website. It would have been interesting to have seen who believed it was genuine!
