Bepop and I have now attended our first shoot. After an early start we met up with Graham and his barbet, Remy, who are both frequent participants in their local pheasant shoot.
Graham and I were to act as beaters and the dogs were to be used to flush the birds from cover. A most enjoyable day out, Remy and Bepop were both very steady workers and neither dog looked out of place in the team.
During the shoot it is important that the dogs are able to work alongside other dogs that are new to them, cope with different terrain and of course ignore the sound of gunfire.
