Can anybody give me some advice on gundog training? We have a 2 1/2-yr-old cocker spaniel bitch (sold to us as a show, but we have our suspicions about that, think she must be a mix of show/working). I recently discovered that my husband has 'working dad guilt' over the dog even though there's usually somebody at home with her and she's a perfectly happy little thing (unless she catches wind of an f - o - x which unfortunately is a problem in our area...) So we're looking at gundog training as a way for him to spend more focussed time with her. Is this something that could work? Or are most gundog clubs a bit more serious and wouldn't want somebody there who's just learning for a bit of interest for them and the dog? We're in Lewisham so I guess we would have to travel a fair bit to get to our nearest gundog club!
