Dummytraining

Dummytraining
Retrievers were breeded for retrieving ducks during the hunting. Dummytraining allows the dogs to use their instincts and are concerned with species-appropriate work for body and head. But Dummytraining is not only fun for the dogs, the humans like it too. It doesn't require much equipment and can be practised during the walks. Dummytraining shouldn't increase hunting behaviour.
Training group Zürichsee
We train in different locations around the lake of Zurich. There is beginner class where the dogs can learn the basics. Than we train together in a group different situations.
About me
I live and work with retrievers for more than 15 years. Nala loves retrieving since she was only 10 weeks old and since then I really care about that sport. We have done lots of courses and trainings so far and still train in the Retriever Club group and together with Claudia von Känel in private lessons.
English training
The Dummytraining lessons are normally hold in German, but of course I will explain everything in English too.
