2017 Shows & Testimonials



9 September – Frome Agricultural Show, Frome, Somerset

We just wanted to say how much we enjoyed your brilliant show you put on yesterday at the Frome Show. We were so impressed with the demonstration of the gundog skills that you presented, and were very amused, as were the rest of the audience, with the tricks that were shown. Hilarious and great fun for the children!
What was of great interest to us, however, were the methods of training a dog that you presented. This, for us, was very informative and taught us many things that we had not thought of ourselves.
It would be great to see you at our local show, Shaftesbury and Gillingham, next year if you feel you are able to attend.
Many thanks again for the brilliant demonstration!”

20 August – Martin Clunes’s Buckham Fair,  Beaminster, Dorset 

The BEST gundogs display ever. So funny. Thank you for a brilliant display at Buckham Fair. Your love for your dogs and theirs in return was wonderful to see. A very informative and outstanding presentation with great humour. We laughed so much at the final part of your show. – Richard Corcoran

Today we watched an educational, entertaining and really enjoyable demonstration by Stephen and his team.
He passed on a wealth of knowledge in dog handling and training in the most amusing way which captured the attention of the whole audience and watching his dogs want to do well for him was quite inspirational.
Stephen`s use of reward and praise clearly showed how to get the best from your dog. – Steve Proctor

Hi Stephen, Ray and I really enjoyed your display at Buckham Fair today, a different approach to gundog training, one which Ray and I thought was very kind and rewarding for both dog and owner. – Mary Collins

Simply brilliant! – Kim Glover

9 August – Thornton Le Dale Country Show, North Yorkshire

We visited the Thornton le Dale show today and the highlight of our day was Stephen and his fantastic team of both stunning dogs and knowledgeable humans. We now have the ability to further our learning through your website so we can put your training ideas into practice when we get our longed for puppy.
Thank you so much for your insight into the mind of our canine friends. A word to everyone, if this man and his gundogs are at a show near you then forget all the other attractions, this is the one to watch! –

Get yourself a TV program so other dog owners can benefit from your teachings. I do not think you have a big enough audience, all ‘would be’  owners need to follow your methods, after all our pets will be so grateful and no one would have to listen to an owner screaming their dogs name when out for a walk! Let’s make your method compulsory for all new owners! Keep up the fantastic work! – Diane, Jay and Heema 

Just to say how much I enjoyed your demonstration at Thornton Dale show on Wednesday, found it very interesting and informative as well as entertaining, also thank you for your time to give advice afterwards. Thank you once again. – Kath Laley

I saw the demonstration you did with your dogs at the Thornton le Dale show in North Yorkshire on the 9th and thought it was amazing! – Michael Hoy

6 August – Wessex Country Fair, Wilton House, Salisbury 

We’ve just returned from a wonderful day at the Wessex Country Fair. The highlight for us was definitely Stephen Harrison and his dogs of One Man and His Gun Dogs. What a captivating and entertaining performance! We were astonished that such young dogs could be so obedient and the older, more experienced dogs were beautiful to watch. We loved the meerkat too! Thank you Stephen and team. We’re looking forward to next year! – Sophie Simpson Gee

Hi Stephen

I just wanted to say a big thank you for bringing the dogs again this year – we really appreciate the effort that you put into coming on the day, and of course, the crowds that you generate for the hospice. Thank you also for helping at the dog show – I know that Jo really appreciated your input. – Sarah Himelfield Shaw, Events Fundraiser

15 July – Codford Fete, Codford, Wiltshire

What brilliant family entertainment! Congratulations to all the dogs for a fantastic performance that kept us amused and laughing throughout. I particularly loved the “stealing the sausage” trick – amazing! The bloke with the hat on was quite good too!  – Jeanette Elliott, Codford

Congratulations on a great show on Saturday, so wonderfully entertaining. I wonder if people realise just how much hard work goes into that?  It had many layers from younger to older dog, gundog skills – and then the tricks – stunning.  Kim and her puppy were great. One of my favourite moments was when the children were shouting when Daisy was pinching the sausage behind your back. That was so clever, we were killing ourselves laughing. I thought it was useful for people to see you correct Poppy, it was all fabulous! – Sarah Terry, Longbridge Deverill

I, like many others, very much enjoyed Stephen’s gundog display and fun dog show at the Codford fete. Having seen his fantastic dogs perform before, they did not disappoint! It was wonderful to see the younger dogs demonstrating the training techniques whilst Poppy and Daisy dazzled the crowd with their advanced gundog skills and impressive array of tricks. I still have no idea how you train a dog to retrieve a sausage or reverse into an open door! The dogs are so focused on him and you can see how much they enjoy working for their dad, a joy to watch! Following the display, Stephen ran the fun dog show which was not your average ‘waggiest tail’. Very entertaining classes and great to see something different with the inclusion of obedience (or an attempt to!), Temptation Alley, Relay Race and Find the Sausage certainly had everyone laughing. A wonderful way to spend a Saturday afternoon, thank you Stephen. – Emma Woodland, Codford

8 July – Nunton Fete, Nunton

Dear Stephen, Thank you so much for coming! You were all really great and I learned so much about Gundog training, I wish I had done it like that years ago ! Please thank all your Team –  they were just marvellous! Best wishes, – Debby Underhill, Event Organiser

25 June – Bude Country Fair, Cornwall

Dear Stephen,  Thank you for doing such a wonderful display of canine cleverness at our dog fair in Cornwall. And thanks even more for taking on our dog show judging , and for your great ideas for putting the “Fun” in Fun Dog Show.  Best regards, – Fraser Proudfoot, Event Organiser

18 June – Evershot Country Fair

“What an amazing day and an amazing performance. Thank you for everything you did today, you were all brilliant and such friendly and lovely people and the dogs were too, they did an amazing job in the weather so please thank them too from all of us at Evershot Country Fair. 

We would love to have you back with us next year, so please let me know if you are available.

I have heard so much positive feedback about yourself and the dogs: the sausage and collar trick was simply stunning, went down a treat and was loved by all! Again, thank you to you and your team, we wouldn’t have been able to do it with out you!

Best wishes, – Jodie Foster, Event Organiser
