    I contacted a local gundog training location if it is possible for me and Finn to start training in April... I am thrilled that they accepted us, even though Finn is 4 years old!
    I once did gundogtraining with our first lab Doerak. Due to traffic jams and children being small I had to resign.
    Do you think Finn is too old to start? He is very eager to learn and work!

    Oh how fantastic @Anne123 :). A dog is never too old to learn new skills and I'll look forward to hearing how your training goes.

    No, don't think is too old, not one bit. The only thing you may find is that Finn has set "patterns" in his mind regarding retrieving, borne out of his experiences to date.

    Casper started a bit of gundoggery around 6/7 years old, he LOVES it!

    An excuse to share one of my favourite videos

    Oh how exciting! I'm sure you'll have a great time, and so will Finn.
