Quotes Dog training is a bit like learning to drive - lots of patience, practice and repetition involved. Ian oversees this with infinite patience and humour, adapting his methods to specific dogs temperaments and needs. After a year of attending both group and individual training sessions, I now have a much better trained, happier working cocker spaniel. I'm looking forward to the rabbit pen being ready! Quotes

Quotes Ian and Andrea operate a fantastic facility at Eshiels. We have taken our springer spaniels there on a number of occasions for both group and one-to-one training and are always impressed by how professional, efficient, patient and friendly they are. I'm particularly grateful that they allowed us, on our first visit, to bring our older, less obedient and noisey springer with us so he wouldn't feel left out when the younger one was being trained!! Thanks for all your help and support. Mark and Julie, Clovenfords. Quotes

Happy dog owners!!

Quotes Hi my name is Scott I have now been going to Eshiels Gundogs for about a year now. I am delighted to say that I have learnt a great deal from one to one lessons and the group sessions. Ian is very professional trainer and explains everything in detail. This allows you to understand why your dog works in certain ways, or not as the case maybe. The training ground is perfect as there is everything you will need. My lab and I have improved a great deal since we started our training with Ian. It is when you go to a quality trainer that you start to understand ALL the mistakes that you have made. However I am now more confident and my lab is also. The difference in both our abilities is easy to see. Ian has got great dogs of his own and when you see how soft and caring he is with them you can see why they love to work for him. I would not hesitate to recommend Ian?s training to anybody for gundog training or obedience training. Quotes

Quotes We purchased our beautiful black labrador pup from Ian and Andrea last summer. He is 14 monthes old now and is a joy to behold. From the outset Ian's communication was outstanding. When we visited to view the puppies at 3 weeks old both Ian and Andrea were so friendly and were obviously excellent breeders. We were kept up todate with Mac's progress by email,including pictures until we brought him home. Even after we brought him home,Ian's input was invaluable. Any queries we had about Mac were answered quickly and confidently. At 6 months old,all the puppies from Mac's litter were invited to return to Eshiels for a training sesseion. It was fabulous to see all the pups together and Ian's training and advice was very welcome. Once again I can only praise Ian and Andrea who have been everything we could have hoped for (and more) in labrador breeder. Our Mac has grown into a beautiful dog who is loved enormously by his family. Thanks Ian Quotes

Purchasing a puppy from Eshiels Gundogs

Quotes I contacted Ian after I was having great problems with my very hunt driven labrador who would run off hunting for up to 2 hours at a time. Ian recommended his residential training for 12 weeks. Luner stayed at Ian?s lovely kennels and his superb surrounding training areas. I must say at this point I was very doubtful if anything could be done and I really thought I would have to rehome her as I thought she would never change. When the 12 weeks were up, I dreaded going to collect her, but how wrong I was, Ian had worked wonders she now walked to heel, knew a stop whistle and direction control, and retrieved to hand. She had obviously built up a lovely bond with Ian as she listed to his every word. He took me through how to continue her training and all the whistle commands I needed to know I would recommend Ian's training without a second thought, his methods of training are kind and he cares for the dogs so very well. Thank- you so much. Quotes

Quotes From the first day walking through the gates and meeting Ian and his family I was very quickly reassured that I was definitely in the right place. The site of happy healthy puppies. The excellent training ground , experience, knowledge and passion was evident throughout. Finn and I have attended several one to one training sessions with Ian and also attended one of the training days. Ian is so welcoming and none threatening. He puts you straight at ease as soon as you meet him. Not only has he given me invaluable professional gun dog training but also he gives very down to earth answers into dog behaviour. Any success is due to no small part to Ian?s patience and encouragement to keep working on the techniques he has taught. I guess whether purchasing a puppy for immeasurable assistance on the shooting ground, trialling or just a loyal family pet I can?t recommend enough the training, breeding and invaluable advice available at Eshiels.
