This is a two part course, introduction and advanced. Course participants will be introduced to the various demands made on Deer dogs, how to start off training a pup for the role selected, progression into work, understanding signs to look for when tracking, as well as a brief introduction to trials and competition as run on the continent. Wild Boar will also be covered.

The course brings over relevant European speakers who are experts in Deer tracking with dogs, and comes with a course booklet.

These are specialist courses and are run by Mark Elliott on behalf of the Deer Branch. Members of the National Gamekeepers' Organisation can access the Deer Branch area through the members only section of the website. To become a member of the NGO join here.
