Welcome to the Mountgrace Gundogs Website
Les Dixon has been a professional gundog trainer for
over twenty five years. He has been touring the country show circuit with
his dogs for the last five years. Les was originally based at Mountgrace
Priory when he started his gundog display team - hence the name.

A typical show day would be two half hour ring
displays, times to suit, but we are flexible and can change to fit in with
your arrangements. We normally bring about eight dogs, some fully trained,
some partly trained and one or two untrained. This allows us to
demonstrate how a trained gundog team works together. Then we can show the
basic steps of training young dogs and puppies at various levels of
training. We find this is always a good crowd puller as the training for
young gundogs is the same as for a pet dog. Also if time permits we like
to involve children in the display.

The larger shows that we have covered include Newark
and Nottingham, Herts County, East of England, Great Yorkshire, Alnwick
Castle as well as many smaller one day shows..
When not in the ring we
have a static display so that the public can come along and see our dogs
and discuss any training problems they may be having with their own dogs.
Our working gundogs are Labradors and Spaniels.
