Time to reflect on your experience in the field

By Wendy Bardsley.

HOW do you feel now the driven shooting season is over? Do you feel you’ve achieved success in the field with your gundog? Whether you have a picking-up, beating or a peg dog it’s a good time to reflect on your experience in the field and start thinking about your plans for the year ahead.

There’s no doubt you want to give your dog a well-earned rest but you also want to keep your dog in good shape throughout the summer. So what are your objectives for 2019? Now is a good time to take stock and check if any changes need to be made.

What went well in the field this season and what do you need to work on? How can you maintain your dog’s fitness and ensure an enjoyable and successful summer?

There are a plethora of gundog activities which can help you stay focused and alleviate those post-season blues. Training days, working tests, scurries and game fair events offer something for everyone, especially the ardent gundog handler.
