What people say about us
“Hello, My name is Eric Darke (Tolkienhurst Smeagol) and I love where I live now.
My first human mum was called Paula. She made sure the people I went to live with were going to look after me properly and give me a nice life.
She asked loads of questions when they phoned her to ask if they could have me, because really she’d like to keep all of the puppies herself, so she wasn’t going to let just anyone take me away.
I had a lovely first 8 weeks with my dog mum (Inde) and dad (Ted) and all the other spaniels they live with at Paula’s house, but when I got to my new home I knew I’d be happy.
Paula was right to ask those questions and really make sure my new humans were going to keep me happy.
I’m a very intelligent pup, you know. I can do pretty much anything after being shown it a couple of times, especially if there’s a bit of sausage on offer.
If you want a clever, mostly well-behaved Springer spaniel like me, contact Paula.”
“So pleased Paula.. Our brilliant pup Jessie is a testament to your efforts in breeding.. We must get up to see you before summer ends xx”
We bought Sammy (Beau) from Hobbiton and he is the most amazing dog – a real chip off the old Ted block.
What we do
Hobbiton Gun Dogs pride ourselves on delivering high quality training. My name is Paula Parker and I have been training and working dogs for 10 years. We are based in Lancashire and therefore take advantage of our beautiful local countryside for many aspects of our dog training. We specialise in gundog training and also work with handlers whose dogs require obedience, socialisation, puppy introduction, and help specific behavioural problems amongst other things.
I have my own pack of working dogs that consists of Springer Spaniels, all of which work with me out in the field and are great shooting companions. We have training grounds available in Lancashire that provide access to facilities and varied ground cover creating a range of training opportunities for all handlers regardless of level or ability. You will be sure to get exactly what you need from our team of experts who will work with you to understand your exact individual requirements. We aim to provide a friendly relaxed environment thus offering a pleasant and positive training experience. We have a passion for dogs and have a firm belief that ‘well trained dogs create happy dogs and happy owners’.
