“I first met Phil in 2010 when I purchased my first gundog, a Labrador called Ripley. As a novice handler/owner I relied on Phil to teach not just Ripley but more importantly me, the basic training so that I could have what I set out to have, a good gundog to take shooting with me. I didn’t realise back in the beginning just how enjoyable the training sessions would become and indeed have now become a part of my life. Our initial basic training has now continued and I attend field trials along with Phil and other members of our group, and to date Ripley has been awarded 2 COM’s, and may hopefully achieve a greater win at some stage in the future. I have also has several one on one sessions, these are as valuable as the group sessions, it’s important for gundogs to be able to work in a group steadily as well as in the field on their own. I have several friends who have now got Labradors and who now also attend Phil’s classes, as his knowledge is really valuable in helping people and their dogs build a solid relationship. I now have Echo, a black lab pup we purchased from Phil in Nov 2011, he has just started training with Phil and is already showing promise. I have no hesitation in recommending Phil and his training services and will always ask his advise if I need it.“
