Depending on who you ask, there are all types of opinions on the British Gundog, and their value in the way we hunt here in the States.  Having laid hands on as many Brit dogs, as anyone on this side of the "pond" has, I assure you they can perform, and do so with style and desire. Many trainers have applied a cookie cutter approach with a force based program to these dogs, and send them home after three months as untrainable.  The softer temperament of many British dogs, makes it even more important to have a flexible program that focuses on repetition, success, and praise, instead of force.  Brit dogs are very loyal to their owners, and are happy to be second to their pack leader. Praise for a job well done with these dogs, goes much further than a correction for a mistake.  I have trained for many of the major Brit breeders here in the US, and dealt with pups from the best of the UK kennels.
