Howard has been our trusted gundog training writer over on Sporting Shooter magazine for many years, and now joins us on Shooting & Country TV as our regular gundog training presenter.

Each episode of this gundog training series moving forwards will look at a scenario you will potentially encounter on a shoot day, with today's subject being a long distance, blind retrieve.

Howard demonstrates what it should look like, and then suggests three exercises you can practice at home to prepare you for the day when you have to pull it off in the field!

After explaining and demonstrating the three exercises, Howard and Lindsay finish with a trouble shooting section, offering you advice and solutions for the problems you are most likely to encounter when training the long distance blind retrieve.
