    More about Andy

    Andy Cullen MBE of Laochin Gundogs, based in the picturesque countryside of Northumberland, has many years of experience of teaching, working and trialling his own gundogs.

    Andy has gained numerous field trial awards and has successfully tutored his clients to similar achievements. In 2011 Andy was voted Gundog Trainer of the Year and awarded the Keith Erlandson Memorial Trophy. Andy has also represented Scotland at the Game Fair.

    Andy is very fortunate to be based in Alnwick with access to an excellent training ground which enables Andy to offer carefully structured training programmes to achieve success in either one to one or group lesson formats.

    Whether your interest lies in field trials, working tests, picking up or working in the shooting field, Andy’s friendly supportive and constructive approach will help you build a successful partnership with your gundog. Andy believes passionately in his methods that many clients now refer to as #thelaochinway.  If you are starting off your gundog journey with a Retriever, Spaniel or HPR, or want to improve your current success/training, Andy is able to offer guidance and structured training to suit all levels of ability.

    Laochin Gundogs also offers online training videos/tutorials via the platform Patreon where you will learn the #laochinway of gundog training. These informative videos take you through the basics and beyond in a step by step visual process that will help you to understand how to get the best from your gundog training.
