THE KNOWE, MILTON of DRIMMIE, PERTH AND KINROSS PH10 7JR
It is the best day to plan training and check the ground when the sky is blue, the breeze chilled, the air clear and the sun is shining. Scotland at its very best (below) April 2020

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. 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).
To provide people with maximum flexibility, groups can book any number of days with any number of people. We will provide training equipment, using a variety of dummies, shot when appropriate and remote launchers. The terrain lends itself to jumps, stone walls, heather, white grass and water. Static and walked up training. There is a variety of accommodation available in the area, from pub/hotel to self catering.
THE FOLLOWING DATES ARE ALREADY BOOKED IN 2020 and as such are unavailable:- Group Rates 4 people and under charged at £75 per handler per day 5 people and over charged at £60 per handler per day
I was delighted with Ronnie on the Glorious 12th 2019. On his first big day working on grouse, our team shot four brace to Ronnies points, with Molly, Cilla & Vixen picking up. We walked some miles in perfect weather.
