From heavy frosty days in November to end of December 2019 - the team have been amazing picking up. Back at it after all the Tinsel & Turkey. Freezing in the Angus glens but blew any cobwebs away. Maverick, Coal and Hector with me with Breeze indispensable on the river. Cilla showing her daughter Grace how it’s done. Good days.
Oakshot have moved and are open for business! We have moved slightly inland to Milton of Drimmie about 15 minutes from Blairgowrie in Perth and Kinross PH10 7JR. Not a bad view to wake up to each morning!
Scotland is notorious for its weather and it's beautiful moorland and lochs. Here March can be blizzard and July and August you can get eaten alive by midge. That is why most of our group training is from April to end of June.
We are busy in April and May but we are taking group bookings for training through June. We are training handlers wanting to enter gundog competition and as a Kennel Club 'A' panel retriever judge, I can advise on competition rules for Field Trials and working tests as we train.
Book from a day to 5 days the choice is yours. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask, by either private message on Facebook, email or phone (as per our contact details page). The private loch we use is taken by landowners drone!

Sometimes gundog handlers know what they want, know what their dogs need. We can set up your stuff so you don't need to.
Sometimes you want to try retrieves but can't do it on your own. We have taken the barbed wire off incase, taken down deer fence to create the "I'd like to try" retrIeve. Contact us with your ideas. May and June in the Scottish highlands may be just what the doctor ordered!
Bring your dogs, bring your friends. An 'A' panel judge available if you'd like to discuss the 'J' regs as you train.
Book us for for a couple of days. You'll be amazed at what you can do.
Thank you Amy Higgs for purchasing the lens for your camera that took the shots everyone loved.
During April 2019 Oakshot Gundogs ran "WE CHUCK, YOU TRAIN" training days for A.V. retrievers.
You booked us, you brought people you like, you brought lunch. We supplied - US, We supplied dummies, We supplied land. No pressure, no tears training. We had radios to communicate for resets - long blind, short mark you know what your dog needs. Day rate regardless of number of handlers was £300.
In April, the grass may not be as green as picture and deckchairs may not be needed. PH11 8QW
