Richard shares his family home with 3 working gundogs and 2 small children. Typical of many modern gundogs his spaniels live indoors and have a definite pet element. For this to succeed the dogs (and children) have to know their roles, boundaries and behavioural expectations in family life.
Richard has trained under Lez Graham, the author of the Pet Gundog series of books and DVDs and is one of the first Accredited Pet Gundog Instructors in the UK. This training has included 2 Open College Network Certificates at level 3 in Canine Studies and Canine Training and Behaviour as well as the 18 month Accredited Pet Gundog Instructor course.
Richard is a registered Master Trainer with the Guild of Dog Trainers.
In addition to his work at Home and Field Richard coaches at Mid-Norfolk Gundog Club.
During the season Richard can be found working his dogs on local shoots and occasionally on a peg. Off season he has been found demonstrating his dogs at the East Anglian Game Fair and the Royal Norfolk Show.
