WORKING GUN DOG TRIALS
Darren Kirk has been training Gun dogs for over 25 years and has the experience to get you and your dog to a standard you can be proud of. Darren and his team of trainers from across the UK will be on hand to assess you and your dog and give you structured training to ensure you are heading in the right direction to win your aspirations. Darren said “We see thousands of gun dogs and handlers every year and come across all kinds of issues and you can be sure it does not take us long to get you back on track. Regardless of the age of your dog we can help you gain control in any environment and ensure you feel confident to continue into this wonderful sport” - "you only get out what you put in" and this is very true. If you are willing to put in the effort, there is no reason you cannot be working your dog on your local shoot or entering trials and working tests. Kirkbourne Spaniels will also be demonstrating their own dog’s agility in the Entertainment Arena.

As always, the East Riding Country Fair will be packed full of live arena entertainment. Visitors can expect live entertainment in the Entertainment from JOSEPH'S AMAZING RACING PIGS on the Saturday plus lots of fun, games and activities in the arena from the Cadets on both days!
