Welcome to Riverlily Working Dogs

Gundog and Handler in Partnership


Run by Abbie Reid

Gundog Training is a wonderful and rewarding way to spend time with your dog. You can have a lifetime of enjoyment and teamwork by harnessing your dog’s natural instincts and getting your dog to work for you.  Here at Riverlily our teaching tagline is “Gundog and Handler in Partnership”. This is something we aim to achieve with all our clients and their dogs. Through positive training methods we  translate all your dog’s boundless energy and drive into a working relationship based on cooperation, mutual respect and of course fun.


Training your dog to a high standard is imperative if you want to take him out on a shoot day.  But even if you are not planning on taking your dog to a shoot, by training your dog to perform the task he was bred to do you will have a happy, contented and motivated dog who will be well mannered and obedient.



At Riverlily Working Dogs we run courses to suit all levels of dog and handler from Puppy to Novice through to Advanced. Individual lessons can also be booked.


We specialise in 

  • Training for novice gundogs and their owners.

  • Training for owners who want to take their dogs out into the shooting field  for picking up and beating

  • Training for owners who want to go down the competitive route and enter Gundog Working Tests.



Riverlily is based in stunning Hertfordshire countryside with good links to the A1M, M25 and M1.
