Accredited Dog Training

Accredited Dog Training

Volucris Gundog Events was founded by Mark Craddock, an accredited dog trainer with over 25 years experience in training, coaching and teaching professions.  Mark is also a member of the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers (IMDT). Membership of this leading body is only offered to trainers that pass 4 theoretical and practical assessments by demonstrating ethical and science based teaching methods.

IMDT - Dog Trainer Qualified and Approved

As dog training is a self-regulated industry, we feel it’s important to demonstrate that we are both experienced and fully qualified to run Gundog events/training days.

Why train with us?

We only use modern dog training techniques, a hands off process of careful education, observation and communication. Through positive reinforcement, we capture and shape wanted behaviour so that dogs know what to do in all situations.
Our classes will teach you how to observe your dog and notice cues that help you to understand how they are feeling. This awareness will ensure both you and your dog get the most out of training, building a solid bond and positive working relationship.

Professional & ACCREDITED

Mark and Trainers employed to work with children and vulnerable adults are Enhanced DBS checked.

Public Liability Insurance

We have appropriate dog training insurance with Petplan and shooting insurance with The British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC).
