Hi everyone,

I am new to this forum so a little introduction if I may. I am a retired IT Director and I am a keen field sports participant. I am a member of a small pheasant shooting syndicate in Worcestershire and I also do some Wildfowling and deer stalking. Last spring and summer I took on two Wirehaired Vizsla puppies one is now just turned 12 months and the other is eight months. I have been training them both as working dogs since I got them. The older one has recently started coming out with me in the beating line. The younger one will not start until next season. I am hoping to meet lots of other likeminded people on this forum and get lots of training help and support.

Hi Scotty,
Welcome to the forum, with the advent of Facebook and the like it has been much quieter in here. Which is a huge shame as there is a fantastic body of knowledge in the archives.

I will make sure I check in more regularly Smile

Not currently. I am just pondering what to do with this forum.

Is there any aspect of your dogs training in particular you are concerned with or any areas they excel in?

The areas of training I want to work on are steadiness to ground game, pointing and retrieving game. I was trying to get in touch with Penny Simpson of Mercia Gundog Training as they run courses at Coleshill which is not far from me. Do you have contact details for her.
