I met David in Lajatico a beautiful little town near Pisa in Tuscany, Italy, where he held a training course following the invitation of the Working Italian Retrievers Club. In addition to his training methods, I noticed that he had a deep knowledge of dogs. The exercises he devised for us were clear and well set so that handler and dog were able to concentrate and succeed and by consequence learn exactly what was expected from the dog and also improve the ways in which to train. We also learned to trust our dogs and he constantly advised us on handling.

David I appreciate you sharing your training methods with me. It was good to see
your methods compared to training in the Untied States. I was impressed with the
rapport you had with all the dogs. They were all well mannered, eager to please and
had a healthy respect for you as a handler. I believe you have a special gift as
a trainer and am confident that anyone that brings a dog to you to develop as a working
companion or field trial dog will be pleased with the results.

I met David Myers 6 years ago, during a training course in Italy. During this time I had the opportunity to appreciate his enthusiasm, his understanding and above all his experience with dogs.
At that time my young bitch was seventeen months old and as many young gundogs are she was always very excited during work. David helped me a lot by finding the right way to put me and my dog in the condition to reach the result we wanted to achieve.
By the end of the three days my bitch was another dog, calm, steady and controlled during work. Every training course is usually a fantastic experience, but meeting with David was very special, because with his advice he taught me more than simple exercises, he taught me how to be confident with my dog, how to put her in the condition to trust me and how to improve the training step by step with patience and determination.
At Bottlingwood gundogs, we take care to make people feel welcome and fully explain our methods to make them easy to learn.
Firstly, we make an assessment of the nature, temperament and stage of each dogs training, Next we set out our easy to follow training plan for the handler to follow. We are always available to our clients by phone if help or advice needed about their dog’s training.
What you get out of gun dog training is what you put in to it. Hard work, time, dedication and most of all, right method to suit your dog.
