Training at Mordor Gundogs


Mordor Gundogs provides training of pet and working dogs to all levels.

There are three basic ways we can help you achieve the goal of having a trained family pet dog, or gundog:

  • Have Your Dog Professionally Trained
  • Lesson & Owner Training
  • Buying a Ready Trained Dog

Each method has its advantages and disadvantages and we recommend that you contact us to discuss which option would be best for you.

Our training methods are firm but not harsh. We pride ourselves on having happy, confident dogs and on the fact that most dogs are reluctant to leave once they have been staying here!

We take all breeds for boarding and training although they must be interviewed first. If you would like to board with us then call or email us to book your dog in. Bring the appropriate documentation (up-to-date vaccinations against parvovirus, coronavirus, distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parainfluenza, and kennel cough).

"Canine Partners is very pleased to be associated with Charlie Thorburn, breeder and trainer, and most grateful for the practical support he has shown in offering a fine young dog to us - to train as an assistance dog - helping to open doors for independence for people with disabilities.
We depend upon splendid people like Charlie to help the Charity in its mission to transform peoples’ lives. Our dogs are trained over two years, to learn up to a hundred discrete commands and not only provide practical assistance to their human 'partner(s)’, but also companionship and therapeutic benefit.
Our dogs pay for themselves six times over in social care terms.Recruiting dogs like those bred by Charlie Thorburn means we can depend upon quality and consistency and ensure the best possible outcome for our canine partners and their human recipients."
