WELCOME TO CLICKER GUNDOG!
Positive gundog training for dogs of all abilities based in the heart of Worcestershire
our courses
Clicker Training Course
Designed to teach the skills of clicker training, explore the boundaries of reinforcement training and establish good teaching techniques.
Individual and Group Courses
We off a wide variety of different courses suitable for all levels of skill and experience, from group training sessions open to any breed of gundog and owners who want to understand more about their gundog and building solid relationships through to more advanced courses which develop behaviours.
Gundog Club Graded Courses
The Gundog Club was launched in January 2006 to help people train their Gundogs through participation in a non-competitive Graded Training Scheme which provides the opportunity for gundog owners to have their dogs tested against a consistent national standard, instead of against other dogs.
Gundog Shoot Over Experiences
Available from October throughout the shooting season the experiences are based on rough shooting. You will experience testing your dogs ability and control in a more relaxed environment than a formal shoot or competition. The guns are there to only shoot the game for the benefit of the participants. The day will challenge both the handlers and dogs hunting ability, control and all general field skills.

I joined Helen for a Clicker Sharpening Skills course. Helen has a lovely relaxed manner and made me – and my dog Gerry – feel very welcome. We loved the course and learnt LOADS .. in fact the course blew my mind! I’m pleased to say that my dog is now well on the way to ‘matching the sample’ and developing ‘cue discrimination’. I cant wait for the next course with Helen!

Today exactly 3 year ago, my 8 month old black lab Noa and I had the opportunity to attend our first Clicker Gundog Workshop in Belgium with Helen. Having no experience, we were endulged in the clicker methodology and positive reinforcement training. I learned how to shape certain behaviours and chain them together. Each workshop has been, and continues to be a memorable experience and I have literally seen my bond strengthened by this style of training….which, for me, has been the greatest reward. What impresses me the most is Helen’s knowledge and understanding about dog behaviour and recommend Helen to anyone wanting to experience unforgettable moments. Thank you Helen.

Having had a bad experience with my new HPR at gundog training, I joined Helen Philips Clicker Gundog Training. Now I have 3 HPRs and we have done beating and picking up on a number of shoots and have successfully taken part in Working Tests. Also with Helens encouragement and patience we have achieved 2 distinctions and 1 merit in the Gundog Clubs graded awards scheme and am looking forward, with Helens help, to doing further grades. Helen explains things well and gives us the theory behind the practical training. Her group sessions have a lovely social feel too with plenty of coffee and cake!! Apart from this, I now have 3 lovely pet dogs that I feel confident to take out and about because of the training that we have received!

Helen’s Clicker Gundog sessions are not simply about dog training – let’s face it – most of the challenges probably come from the handle end of the lead. Helen is remarkable for her stamina, patience, sense of humour (she needs that), ability to give confidence and her observation of what’s going on between dog, handler and the environment. Whether it’s a week-long ‘Camp’ with a great band of students and their dogs, a shoot-over day or one-to-one training, Helen’s training is packed with ‘light bulb’ moments: a great mix of learning theory and gundog specific knowledge, practical exercises and, of course, lots of fun for both dogs and people.

I have really struggled to find a gun dog trainer that understands how dogs learn, uses positive methods only and has a wide variety of approaches to suit all dogs. But at last I found Helen. She has the skills to make sure that both dog and handler have a really good time learning the tasks of gun dog work and that both are set up for success. Being a Vizsla person she also particularly understands HPRs which is an extra bonus for me. Of all the gun dog trainers that I have trained with or heard about I would recommend Helen above any others.

Meeting Helen was such a relief . After a few sessions with various other trainers / groups I had almost lost hope to find someone that wouldn’t make me feel anxious and uncomfortable. My first session was an eye opener and a joy, so much so that I left with a big smile on my face. And this didn’t stop after the first session. Helen is patient, calm, encouraging, doesn’t push too fast, doesn’t make you feel inept and is incredible observant and thoughtful. One to ones are rewarding and group sessions are great fun. She attracts such a great group of people that their company helps bring you on too. Learning and encouraging each other, with guidance from Helen. She has a cracking sense of humour too.

We learned a lot at the workshop with Helen. Love how she works with dogs and people, no pressure and loads of fun. But very clear and to he point. Perhaps one day I come to the UK to do some real hunting with Helen but in the meantime I hope she comes back to Belgium to do some more workshops.
