Two Types of Training
Some people would argue that the best trained springers are those which win prizes for obiedience. There is another view though – that trialling champions are the best trained. Well, to me it’s just like arguing about what the best flavour of ice cream is – it’s a matter of opinion – or taste, I guess.
A Special Breed
Undoubtedly a trialling champion springer must be special, and this video documentary (Lone Hunter TV) shows just what is needed to train a trialling champion. I’m not a trialling person myself, but the sheer enthusiasm and joy this dog gets from the training is a real pleasure to watch!
It also presents an interesting view of a top-notch kennel, and brings home the point that these dogs are bred for the field and not as family pets.
