We are Philip and RachelBirt and we are privileged to live in a beautiful part of Dorset with our gundog family. Our gundogs are a big part of our lives, we live with them, play with them, have fun with them and train them, but above all else, we love them.
We have a passion for all things canine and particularly the working and gun dog breeds. Over the last 40 years we've owned several different breeds including G.S.D.'s, Labradors, and Border Collies. In fact my first dog, a poodle, was bought for me when I was eleven, to cure my fear of dogs! We have owned, trained and bred several different working breeds more recently working with those in the gun dog group, concentrating on the working variety of Cocker Spaniel.
Our dogs enjoy a variety of disciplines. Phil competes at flyball with Drummer and I am totally addicted to Talking Dogs Scentwork(R) and in November 2015 I became a Talking Dogs Scentwork(R) Accredited Handler and am having great fun developing our team work skills with Bootie, Rossi and Ayla in particular, but all our dogs thoroughly enjoy the sniffing game!
