For dog trainers and gundog professionals
The Gundog Trainers Academy offers comprehensive educational courses to dog trainers wishing to learn to train gundog handlers, to existing gundog professionals wishing to ‘crossover’ to positive reinforcement training methods, and to already established R+ gundog trainers looking to gain accreditation with a respected body.

• Through our rigorous assessment process, the Gundog Trainers Academy will grant membership to successful candidates who must abide by the Code of Practice.
• The GTA promotes its members and all aspects of ethical gundog training to the general public.
