David is a member of the Scottish gundog team and took first, second and third place at 2007/8 Irish Springer Championships at the Glenarm estate in Northern Ireland, which was an incredible achievement.

The training days will cover the basics, from obedience through to advanced techniques, and will test your dog on both land and in water.

The training will take place in the beautiful open country of the Queensberry Estate in Dumfries and Galloway, where various training areas of natural cover and open moorland are established.

The course will be tailored to all levels, though it is assumed that
the winners will have mastered some basic training before attending and that dogs will come when called, sit on command and stay.

The prize will also include two nights’ accommodation with meals.

Chudleys has a long association with gundogs and has been making quality foods for working dogs for over 30 years. The winners will also receive a six-month supply of Chudleys dog food for their dog.

In addition, Chudleys will also offer 60 runners-up a chance to win a Chudleys Big Bite bar and voucher.
