Burrendale Gundogs is owned by Tony O'Hare, an experienced Field Trial competitor and gundog trainer from Burren, County Down.
Originally from Burren in County Down, Ireland and now living in Mellor, Lancashire, Tony O'Hare has been training and competing Labradors for over 12 years. He has achieved great success throughout his gundog career so far and is extremely proud to have represented Ireland at International level several times.
Coming from a shooting background - with his grandfather, father and brothers interested in country sports - it was almost inevitable Tony would have an interest in shooting. However he has found his real passion is for training, working and competing gundogs.
His dedication and hard work paid off when he made his first Labrador, Burren Injector (Bomber) up to Field Trial Champion within 2 years, followed by his bitch, Tyrrellison Star Dreamer (Maisy) at just 22 months old. Tony recently qualified two dogs for the 2021 IGL Retriever Championship - OFTW Burrendale Bruno at just 2 years old and FTCH Burrendale Ace - getting through to the second day with both. He was awarded a Diploma of Merit at this prestigious event with Field Trial Champion Burrendale Ace (Murphy). He describes these as his proudest moments in his career so far.
Living with his wife Hannah in the heart of the Ribble Valley, Tony has access to some spectacular grounds with varying terrain and is available to offer 1-2-1 and group lessons, tailored to suit you, your dogs and your needs and requirements. We are also in the process of completing our own, safe and secure, private training ground situated at home, just a short drive from the M6.
Gundog Training Lancashire - Tony's aim is to provide people at any level with enjoyable, beneficial training. Putting his years of experience competing in field trials, working tests and picking up in the field into practice, he is determined to help you and your dogs succeed, whatever your goals.
