HPR training

HPR training is specific to the needs and attributes of the Hunt, Point and Retrieve breeds such as the Hungarian Visla, the Brittany, the German shortaired pointer and the Bracco to name a few.

The HPR training starts from puppy hood right through to more advanced training. Covering such aspects as obedience, retrieving, hunting and pointing, which is the behaviour specific to the HPR breeds.

The thing that separates these great dogs is their hunting and pointing. Our hunting classes aim to utilise their hunting abilities and to teach you how to best work them in the field.


Classes are a superb way of helping dogs learn self control or steadiness training as well as accepting working around other dogs.  All the exercises and training

we cover in the sessions replicate aspects of shooting with our dogs. The handling training we do helps you control your dog whilst at a distance and allows you to get ready for working them on a shoot, if that’s your goal.

We are very lucky to have numerous working test awards as well as field trial awards with our Hungarian Vizslas.
