Gundog Puppy Pathfinder Program

Picture the perfect scenario: Your gundog puppy comes home and settles in with unshakeable confidence. Toilet training becomes a breeze, and from the moment they arrive, they respond promptly to your ‘come when called/recall’ commands. Even before their first walk, they are already mastering the art of loose lead walking, so when they’re ready to explore the big wide world, they’re already one step ahead!

Please note: Programs will sometimes have a wait time before you can commence. This is because when a client commences a program they have dedicated access to my time. I therefore choose to limit how many I run at any one time to enable me to give my best service.

Time is Transformation

When can you start your puppy program?

You can purchase your Puppy Pathfinder Program before you get your new puppy and can then access the Gundog Puppy library of videos & PDF’s covering things from preparing to collect your puppy through their first night at home to their very first training session.  

Once they are home you can then begin your live training and support sessions.

Gundog puppies, like any other puppies, can experience a range of common issues during their early development. Some of the most common gundog puppy problems include:

Common Gundog Puppy Problems

Biting and Nipping

Puppies explore the world with their mouths, but excessive biting and nipping can be a problem. This behaviour needs to be addressed to ensure they learn appropriate bite inhibition.

Toilet Training Issues

Accidents in the house are common during puppyhood as they are still learning where it’s appropriate to go to the toilet, this can be speedy with the right advice.


Puppies chew, that’s a fact, they do it to alleviate teething discomfort, and because of boredom or curiosity. Dealing with chewing appropriately can save you mental anguish and financial stress.

Jumping Up

Gundog puppies are often energetic and may jump up on people when excited, if not dealt with appropriately as a puppy this can become a massive issue for gundog owners as your puppy grows into an adult.

Recall Challenges

Gundogs need reliable recall skills, and puppies need not struggle with coming back, get recall started early!

Socialisation Problems

The wrong kind of socialisation during puppyhood can lead to fear or aggression towards other dogs or people, so many gundog owners get socialisation wrong, don’t be one of them, get the right guidance from the start.

Lead Pulling

Gundogs are bred for their energy and drive, and many owners contact me seeking help later in their gundogs life. Get your puppy off on the right paw from the start!

Overexcitement / Not Settling

Puppies may struggle to settle and stay calm, especially after periods of high activity.

Gundog puppies can be enthusiastic and may struggle to remain calm and focused, particularly during training sessions.

Resource Guarding

Some puppies may show possessive behaviour over toys, food, or other items, which can develop into resource guarding issues (using aggressive displays or aggression to prevent items from being taken from them).
