Whether you want your gundog to be an expert in the field or simply a well-behaved family member, training a gundog is hugely rewarding. But if it’s your first time training a gundog, you may find it incredibly difficult too. The feeling is not uncommon; it’s one shared with most owners. We wanted to help people at the beginning of their gundog journey to get it right, so we created the Hot Mess Handler.

Introducing the LWDG Hot Mess Handler Course

Gundog training doesn’t have to be complicated. In fact, with the proper guidance, it can be downright enjoyable!

Our Gundog Experts have put together a nine-step foundation program that covers everything you need to know to get started on the path to success. And best of all, it’s designed to be easy to follow, even if you feel overwhelmed and frustrated.

So don’t wait any longer. Get the guidance you need to succeed with your gundog training. Then, let our Gundog Experts help you build a solid foundation for success.

The nine cues you’ll need to train your gundog.

Training a gundog is an essential part of owning one. It helps to build the bond between you and your dog, and it also helps to keep your dog safe when out in the field. The Hot Mess Handler course is a great way to learn the nine cues that every gun dog should know. These cues include Sit and Wait, Self Control, Effective Recall, Steadiness, Retrieving, Heelwork, Stop Whistle, Hunting and Directional Commands. The course is designed to be fun and engaging for both you and your dog, and it is a great way to build your bond with your gundog.

Why it should be fun for both you and your dog when training a gundog

Despite the very serious culture surrounding training a gundog, training a gundog should be an enjoyable experience for you and your dog. After all, it’s a chance to bond with your canine companion while teaching them new skills.

And what could be more rewarding than watching your dog learn and progress? So while it’s important to be patient and consistent when training a gundog, it’s also important to have fun.

Dogs are more likely to learn when they’re having fun, so make sure to keep things positive. Treats can be a great way to reward your dog for a job well done, and praise is always appreciated. If you’re both having fun, the training process will be much more enjoyable – and successful!
