I HAVE BEEN TRAINING MY DOGS FOR NUMEROUS YEARS AND BEFORE I HAD POINTERS I HAD GSD'S THAT WE DID OBEDIENCE AND AGILITY DISPLAYS AROUND THE COUNTRY, WHICH HAS GIVEN ME THE THE KNOWLEDGE AND ABILITY TO TRAIN DOGS TO A HIGH LEVEL OF OBEDIENCE.
WE WILL BE ABLE TO TEACH YOUR DOG TO WALK TO HEEL ON AND OFF A LEAD, (WITHOUT PULLING ANY ARMS OUT OF THEIR SOCKETS) BOTH SIT AND DOWN STAY FOR 10 MINUTES PLUS, AND TEACH YOUR DOG TO SIT ON A WHISTLE, BOTH CLOSE AND AT A DISTANCE, COME BACK TO A WHISTLE AND TO STOP ON A WHISTLE. WE CAN ALSO OFFER TRAINING TO THE GUN, RETRIEVAL OF DUMMIES, DUMMY LAUNCHER AND GAME.
THIS TYPE OF TRAINING IS THE BASIC'S THAT ALL GUNDOGS SHOULD HAVE (THE GUN AND DUMMY WORK IS NOT ESSENTIAL FOR A PET, BUT THEY LOVE DOING WHAT COMES NATURALLY AND EVEN PET HOMES SHOULD INVEST IN A £5 DUMMY!) IF YOU ARE WANTING DOGS TRAINED TO FIELD TRIAL STANDARD I CAN SUGGEST RORY MAJOR, AS HE FINISHED OFF THE TRAINING OF DIPPER (ANDSAL BEST MATE) AND THEN HE WENT ON TO WIN A FIELD TRIAL AT HIS SECOND ATTEMPT.
IF YOUR DOG HAVE A SPECIFIC PROBLEM WE WILL TRY TO FIND OUT THE CAUSE AND THEN RE-TRAIN YOUR DOG SO HOPEFULLY HE/SHE GOES HOME PROBLEM FREE! MOST PROBLEMS CAN BE RECTIFIED, BUT I MUST STRESS THAT WE WILL NOT TAKE ON DOGS THAT HAVE BIG AGGRESSION PROBLEMS (I WOULD LIKE TO KEEP ALL MY FINGERS IN TACT) IF YOU HAVE A DOG THAT HIS BITTEN SOMEONE OUT OF AGGRESSION OR FEAR AND HAS CAUSED DAMAGE SUCH AS A WOUND NEEDING STITCHES ETC.. THEN I WOULD SERIOUSLY ASK YOU TO CONSIDER HAVING YOUR DOG PUT TO SLEEP. HOWEVER.... MOUTHING, WHICH IS COMMON IN GUNDOGS IS ANOTHER MATTER, WE CAN ALSO CURE GROWLING IN MOST CASES, BUT I WOULD ASK YOU TO BE HONEST WITH ME BEFORE THE DOG ARRIVES TO THE EXTENT OF THE PROBLEM
I GET ASKED "HOW LONG WILL YOU HAVE MY DOG FOR" WELL THAT REALLY DOES DEPEND ON WHAT LEVEL OF TRAINING YOU WANT YOUR DOG TO REACH, AND ALSO IF THERE IS A SPECIFIC PROBLEM, THAT MIGHT TAKE A LITTLE LONGER TO IRON OUT. SO THE ANSWER IS - IT DEPENDS ON YOU AND IT WILL ALSO DEPEND ON THE AGE OF THE DOG, AS DOGS OVER A YEAR OLD HAVE A BIGGER CONCENTRATION SPAN THAN SAY A PUPPY OF 6 MONTHS
WE OFFER TRAINING TO ANY BREED OF GUNDOG, AND WE MAY CONSIDER OTHER BREEDS BUT NOT THOSE ON THE LIST OF DANGEROUS DOGS.
DOGS WILL NEED TO BE UP TO DATE WITH THEIR VACCINATIONS AND THE CARD WILL NEED TO BE BROUGHT WHEN YOUR DOG ARRIVES.
A SMALL CONTRACT WILL NEED TO BE SIGNED (I AM MORE THAN HAPPY TO EMAIL YOU A COPY BEFORE YOU ARRIVE) IT JUST COVERS VETS BILLS, TERMS, ETC
IF YOU WOULD LIKE A I-2-1 TRAINING ON A DAILY BASIS, OR A ONE OFF THAT IS £25 PER SESSION
IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CALL ME ON 07885 362386
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxHi Sally happy new year to you both how's Paul well i hope. yes the boys are brilliant i train with them every day and Reuben is a completely different dog so obedient even when out now. you can get him back from a distance even with pheasants around cant believe the change in him thanks you. Ghost well not as obedient he is a lot more hard work but we have recently had his bits off for health reason and he seems to be calming down. he will do his commands but not first time every time.
overall they are both so much better and it was worth every penny.
once again thanks Sally i will come and see you soon and show you how well Rueben has come along.
Thank you so much for looking after Ejay for us. You have made a loving home an even more relaxed and cheery environment
With an 8 month Vizsla you get pretty much what you expect in the way of bounce and concentration, but I am very pleased to say that after a week with you our little pupil is much more willing to listen and pay attention which has made the training process continue up a gear and allowed us both to concentrate on the tasks at hand
Dog training is a misnomer and should include handler training as well. Her short stay with you has made me aware of my short comings as well as hers, which now they have been corrected, means she understand better and is therefore not confused and responding to her commands quicker than ever.
Thanks to you time and patience we were able to enjoy our break and have now a firmer base to continue her education. She always was a gorgeous dog with what I was hoping were glimmers of a beautiful nature but now I know we do have this potential to work on.
Thank you for your help and I know that if we ever go away again I can relax knowing she is in excellent hands
Re: ANDSAL Riverside Stud Training
We have a 6 month old Vizsla Bitch and had been experiencing difficulties with pack leadership, obedience and had some instances of undesirable behaviour such as resource guarding and growling.
Having tried the methods of a behavioural trainer with limited success, I was recommended by a Vizsla breeder to get in touch with Sally.
After a very helpful phone call, we agreed to book Marnie in for some residential training. The setting is fantastic, with excellent areas to do training and excellent facilities for the dogs. Sally spoke to us most days, though that would have been every day if we had chosen too. She is a fantastic trainer, who understands the needs of the dog, but as importantly our needs as owners. She reassured me constantly of Marnie’s progress and well being and of my ability to become a more effective handler. Within a week Marnie was sitting, walking to heel, sitting on a whistle and laying down on command. As importantly Sally identified difficulties with Marnie’s food and eating regime.
Changing her eating regime and feeding her the right amount of food has greatly helped with her anxiety and resource guarding as she no longer panics that she won’t be getting enough food. She also looks fantastic and healthy now.
She has returned home after two weeks a calmer, happier , healthier dog who has in essence been taken back to basics and become a dog again. She has been home two days and we are thrilled with her behaviour. This continues with us putting into place everything Sally has taught us. On collection of Marnie, we spent a great day with Sally and Paul. We were thoroughly welcomed, listened to and made to feel confident in our abilities and not shamed by any mistakes that we had made. Sally spent time with me showing me how to feed Marnie and all the training commands she had worked on with her. Then I did it with Sally until I was confident to carry it on at home.
Since being home we have continued to have contact with Sally, to ensure that everything is going well.
I would thoroughly recommend this training, Sally’s genuine regard and warmth for the dogs as well as her reassuring approach for the owner alongside excellent training are invaluable.

Just to say a massive thank you for the work you did with Dylan last week
I am keeping up the heel work, sits, stays all close work as advised before attempting the far off lead recalls again.
The difference is very rewarding to see especially after he completed his first training session on the gundog course with flying colours.
His recall work off the lead during the course was excellent as were his sits / stays etc.
Both Dylan and Dobbi were praised very highly for there looks by the trainer Mike Tomlinson.
Again, a massive, massive thank you,
