Hilary Burbidge Dog Training

About me

I have over nine years Gundog training experience with my own dog to Kennel Club Working Gundog Certificate (on dummies). I am a member of the Utility Gundog Society (Herts, Beds and Bucks Branch) and achieved Gundog Club Field Tests with The Gundog Club grades 1 to 4 (currently at grade 5), I have IMDT training and experience on several working shoots and numerious Gundog events and charity tests up and down the country. My dog Matlock and I are also Pets As Therapy volunteers.

Ripley, our 1yr old black Labrador bitch joined our family in Summer 2023, her mum and dad are very talented working gundogs, her mum is Lyebreach Black ‘Kite‘ dad is Field Trial Champion Isleofman Gorse of Wylanbriar WGC  –  ‘Callum’, I’m very excited about her future and will be bringing her on slowly and carefully.

With my specialist experience working a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, I set up Duck Dogs an NSDTR training group. This group is for owners wishing to train towards Kennel Club standard working Gundog tests and charity test events and working shoots. If you’re a NSDTR owner and would like to know more, please do get in touch.
