Robert Milner and Robin Watson will conduct a 3-day seminar on the principles and practice of training retriever gundogs. You will get lots of the theory and practical application of operant conditioning as it applies to retriever gundog training. You will get lots of hands-on practice with dogs. If you don’t have one, we will furnish one from Duckhill kennels. You will also get from experts, a good education on current British gundog training theory and practice.

Robert Milner has extensive background and experience at training both American and British Labrador gundogs and is the author of "Retriever Training for the Duck Hunter" and "Retriever Training – A Back to Basics Approach." He is a past retriever columnist for Ducks Unlimited Magazine. He is the founder of Wildrose Kennels which he sold in 1995. He currently owns Duckhill Kennels, specializing in British Labrador Gundogs.

Robin Watson owns Tibea Gundogs in England. The kennel was founded by his father in 1964 and has produced a number of Field Trial Winners and Field Trial Champions. The most widely recognized of these is probably Tibea Tosh. Robin has trained several Field Trial Winners and Field Trial Champions. He is currently campaigning Field Trial winning Brackenbird Minnow and Ducksfoot Chubb of Campdenhill.
Robin is an “A” Panel Field Trial Judge and a member of the Kennel Club.

The training seminar starts at 9:00 am on Friday, May 29 and runs through Sunday May 31.
