5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect! 28 Oct 2012
By Eva
This DVD was perfect for us, having made every possible mistake with our first ESS... we only wish we saw it when we brought our illy home for the first time!
We are also so very lucky to actually go to Howard Kirby for training, but we would recommend this DVD to all those that can't get to Mullenscote in person.
In particular we would recommend it to all those gundog owners like us who thought they only wanted a house pet and not bother with gundog training... These dogs are bred to work and they will go self employed if you don't teach them what you want from them, and after 2 years of raising an absolute terror of a dog we realised there is no "half way" obedience level, it's this high standard or no standard at all..
Great job Howard!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gundog training DVD 16 July 2012
By Jamie

Having just brought home my first working cocker spaniel pup, I had been looking for a good training DVD for some time. Howard Kirby has a fantastic way of "training the trainer", he is very clear and calm and takes you right back to basics. He shows you what can be achieved if you have the correct atitude and approach, without making it look like he is simply just showing off (which some trainers seem to do on their DVDs).
Since recieving the DVD, i have watched it almost daily! If you put the time in to practicing the techniques shown on this DVD, you will not be disapointed.
Thanks you to Howard and the team.

3.0 out of 5 stars Gundog basics 6 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase
This is not a bad DVD, but it is what the title says, the very basics of gundog training.

All this said, it has done what I wanted which was to show my daughter how to and where to start training her new puppy.
