    Hi, I am interested in your offer. I have just bought an English Setter in France, with great pedigree in working Setters and my intention is to shoot woodcock walking after my setter, in the style hunt, point, retrieve. If you think there is room in your group for me, please let me know. I live in Exeter. Thanks. Jose

    On various woodcock shoots i have attended, the gundogs were less than well trained
    They dont need to be, the purpose is for them to put up birds to be shot, in a safe manner
    The are various spanels and labradors and riotus to boot.
    If you were to turn up with a setter, that you were hoping to train to HPR, it would be mayhem
    As your setter came on point the others would barge in and flush the cock, as for retriving the fastest one gets there first get to retrive it if not having it taken away by another dog. !!
    It would be a almost impossible to train a setter to point and retrive in these circumstances
    I suggest you would be better looking for people who only run HPR dogs
    Good luck with your new puppy
    Humans are pre wired with fight or flight response
    Great Grandad fought, Grandad fought.
    For the sake of my Grandchild I wish for Less Flight responses entering Europe

    that sounds a good plan ,i work a english pointer and it dosnt take long for even a puffing old lab to suss out your dogs points and stop working for its self and take to bombing in on your dogs work as you close in on a point ,a world of diffrence to putting a dog in to flush
