THE Mission OF GIRLS WITH GUNDOGS
If you want to learn about yourself, train a dog.
Girls with Gundogs is about identifying the challenges that a handler and a dog may be facing and working together to overcome them. Through developing the practical skills of training a gundog, you may find yourself surprised at how working with a dog can be a journey into learning about yourself.
Our goals include:
- Teaching women Positive Reinforcement-based Gundog Training in a relaxed, supportive women-only environment
- Encouraging the exploration of field sports
- Fostering sportsmanship and conservation values among all participants
"The world is speeding up. It feels faster and faster than it has ever felt before. Girls with Gundogs is about taking a break from that. It's about getting yourself into a new situation, being outside with a dog, connecting to something natural, or primal even, that maybe you've lost touch with. It's a way to get women into the outdoors, it's a way to get women into conservation, and it's a way to get women into a field that's been dominated by men for a long time. That's the vision."
