Margaret Collins, owner of Manor Farm Veterinary Surgery:
Stephen Harrison of “One Man and His Gundogs” and Codford resident, gave a gundog demonstration. He works at Mullenscote Gundogs and used his experience of running training courses for all levels of dogs to explain how to teach the basics of sit, stay, heel and come to any breed of dog, followed by a display of advanced gundog work. He made it look so easy (but not so simple to do at home, I am sure!), but he did mention that this sort of obedience takes ongoing training – and no small amount of sausages! The demo finished with 10 minutes of tricks by both dogs including “stealing the sausage”! Brilliant!
