Gospel Ash Gundogs


Nick and Phillipa Coates run Gospel Ash Gundogs from our home near Wilton in Wiltshire, We have been at our present site for 14 years.

We are involved in all aspects of gundog work, Nick has a great reputation for teaching handlers to train their own dogs from basic obedience to the top Field Trial level, this would be either a bespoke one to one lesson or course of lessons, or group lessons.

We operate from locations near our home in Wilton but also spend some time in Dorset from for the summer months.

Lessons can be organised in other locations subject to consultation

We have dogs in for training to the owners requirements and also have dogs in for specific problems on a short term basis popular when owners are going away on holiday

Nick has been fortunate to have been asked to teach and judge in other countries in March 2010 he was invited by the Gundog Retriever Training Association of Japan to run a seminar in Kiyosato

The GRTAJ were looking to start working tests based on UK lines, this consisted of a practical day followed by a day indoors where UK working tests rules and regulations were discussed, as the first paragraph of UK working Tests state that the test should be as close to a normal shooting day some time was spent describing a shooting day, that evening was spent with senior members discussing judging criteria.

The last day was again a practical day spent with more advanced dogs.

Nick also spends some time with training some Gundog clubs in 2012 he helped the training with the North Devon Working Gundog Club and the Wiltshire Working Gundog Society and the United Retriever Club (Hants and South West)

I have been invited back for the 2013 season
