Fantastic Class

Fantastic class, knew nothing about place boards beforehand and now wishing I’d done this with my dog from a pup. Hoping 2 years old is not too late!

Really helpful and easy to follow

Really helpful and easy to follow. I have been introduced to place board training before but never really understood how it works but this was so simple. Will be taking some tips. Thank you

Expecting my placeboard to come in the mail today. I had a couple ideas how to use it already and was actively looking online for more ideas. This was perfect!

Expert Bio

Hi Everyone, I am Emma Stevens owner of Cunningshot Dog Training which originated from my breeding kennel name Cunningham (my maiden name and my late grandfathers name) and Shot for GundogsI have been around dogs and horses from a young age. Training and interested in health and nutrition.I started off with agility and obedience training. Then when I went to college to do animal management I learnt training methods for a wide range of animals from alpacas to Emu’s. Learning the different training techniques and methods I feel has shaped me into the trainer I am today.


After college I went to university to study veterinary medicine and science. To get into vet school I undertook a lot of work experience placements. Lots of my work experience was training related. Attending RAF police dog kennels to learn about protection and scentwork to large exotic animal work to learn how zoo keepers train large species to have medical examinations and blood tests etc.Whilst at university I decided that my passion was for training and behaviour rather than the medical side of the degree. This is where my love for Gundog training came into play. I always liked dog breeds with a working purpose having had collies and non working Gundogs, security and detection work and with my varied training knowledge across different disciplines I decided Gundogs were where I wanted to further my career.

Cunningshot Dog Training

I built the business to help pet and working Gundogs through positive training and create shoot day ready dogs that any owner country background or not, child or adult, Male or female could take out on a shoot day. I try to offer knowledge and guidance for complete novices and people who have been dealing with working dogs all their life.My personal life I live with my husband who is an under keeper and our team of Gundogs and terriers. I often help on the shoot when I’m not training and I also work in a veterinary practice part time. I offer canine first aid course and behaviour consults alongside my training. We have a fair few Gundogs between us who help with group sessions and my behaviour work as well as all working themselves in various countryside roles suited to their breeds including pest control and shoot day work.I hope you enjoy the masterclass as much as I enjoyed filming it. Please feel free to message Cunningshot Dog Training if you would like to give feedback, ask any questions or need any training help.
