Drake, the gun dog champion

View descriptionShare

Kate Fairweather introduces Drake, a talented black labrador retriever, who was England’s top scoring gun dog two years in a row at the “Gun dog Olympics” - a.k.a. the Anglesey International. Hear Drake hunting for a dummy bird on the Cowdray Estate in West Sussex, helped by whistle commands from his owner, Jason Mayhew. 

Gundog trainer Jason tells the story behind Drake’s competition success in field trials - which simulate the conditions of a large scale pheasant shoot. 

Drake and retrievers like him must stay 100% focused on their handlers over significant distances and against a VERY noisy backdrop. How do they do it? Find out in this month’s Dogs with Jobs.
