owner training gundog

Lianne is a full time mum of 4 boys. She currently has 4 Labradors called Marley, Digby, Harvey and Rhea.  Rhea is the newest addition to the team.
Lianne started taking an interest in gundog training about 4 years ago when she met Anthony Sweatman a gundog trainer. She attended a few shoot days and tests with him and in the summer of 2018, Anthony bred a litter of puppies. He gave Lianne the opportunity to choose one from the litter to train and from then on Anthony let Lianne train Harvey.   Anthony would be very proud to know that Lianne continues to go out every day with Harvey (although he is fully trained now) and also a brand ambassador for Muntjac Trading!! 
Lianne also takes amazing photos and she has already provided us with so many great photos of the Muntjac dummies and products in action on Instagram and Facebook and a lot of her photos are on our website.  We are looking forward to working alongside Lianne and her dogs!

Celine Peniston-Bird - Wintercoombe Gundogs

Celine has always wanted Labradors, having grown up walking other people’s in her local village, this grew into a keen interest in working Labradors whilst she completed her degree in photography.

She got her first lab, Grouse, in her early twenties and started working her on shoots in Surrey. After a 5 year hiatus living in France (with her dogs), Celine returned to England in 2017 and got straight back into the shooting field this time in Devon, picking up with her dogs on a number of shoots throughout the season and running the picking up team on her and her husbands own syndicate shoot; Lamberts Castle. 

She currently has 5 Labradors and occasionally breeds a litter, under her kennel name; Wintercoombe, aiming to breed multipurpose working dogs who are both great active companions around the home and excellent working dogs. 

Celine has been using Muntjac Trading equipment for years and is often seen sporting a colourful selection of their slip leads and has her car adorned with various shapes and sizes of training dummy.
