Welcome to Hawcroft Gundogs
Hawcroft Gundogs is a Gundog Training Kennels situated near Lichfield, South Staffordshire, offering a wide range of services ranging from one to one tuition, puppy lessons, residential training, game training days through to supplying either puppies, part or fully trained gundogs.
Simon Tyers founded Hawcroft Gundogs and has been handling dogs for over 30 years and has a wide range of experience of most gundog breeds including Spaniels, Retrievers, HPR`s, Pointers and Setters, many of which he has trained and worked successfully both professionally and during his time as Gamekeeper and Falconer.
Simon retired from training dogs at the end of 2015 and since 2013 Tom Skelly who has been training with us for a number of years prior, has been actively involved with teaching clients and taking on some residential training.
Tom came to Hawcroft after training his own gundogs for many years and wanted to improve to become more succesfull and to further his trialing career. Since then Tom has had many field trial awards, wins and has made up Timsgarry Swift to FTCH and competed in the Cocker Championship. Tom is an active field trial judge and also has training facilities in Yorkshire.
We specialise in working Cocker Spaniels and English Springer Spaniels and have bred and trained both Field Trial Champions and Winners.
We offer an individual service but can also cater for group or club training on request. Our facilities include secure training areas, rabbit and pheasant pens, retrieving lanes, fences and water, woodland to moorland.
We produce a small number of puppies each year, some of which are occasionally for sale, please see our dogs for sale page for any currently on offer. We can also locate dogs for our clients should we not have any to offer at the time.
