Here's what our customers have to say

"Ian and Alex have been outstanding from the very start of my experience with them. From selecting the right dog that will suit me and my shooting/hunting needs to the ongoing excellent communication from start to finish. This included many video updates on our dog's (Dot) progress and performance, including weekly phone calls.

The kennels are pristine and the level of care and hygiene afforded to the dogs here are second to none! Ian the owner and Alex are both very approachable and intensely knowledgeable about all things to do with dogs, gun dogs and all that their business encompasses.

I must add that their aftercare and advice after I took Dot home has been excellent. Any time I have needed some reassurance or advice they have been prompt to reply and happy to discuss anything.

They have helped with my continuation training with Dot and are happy to critique my own videos of my progress with Dot in her new environment.

100% genuinely nice people, I will do business again"


"Excellent - would strongly recommend - 5 stars


We took our 2 year old Labrador to Brockwell and explained that she doesn’t walk well still, doesn’t come back on recall and mainly she is reactive to other dogs. Brockwell took Lola in for a month on a residential and they have worked miracles on her. She is not only walking excellently but she doesn’t really care about other dogs and I can finally walk past other dogs without fear. It’s like a different dog!! She responds so well to the whistle now as well. I couldn’t stop smiling when I picked her up and we did our training session before she left. I cannot speak highly enough about the team, especially Ian and Alex. We were really nervous and worried about leaving our dog. They kept in touch with us all the time via phone and sending videos of her progress. I would strongly recommend. Thank you so much Brockwell we finally have the dog we always wanted."


"I’d give him my last Rolo!

Ian (and Alex) did an amazing job with Rolo. We bought him at 15 months as a pet WCS, part trained and he’s absolutely the dog for us. He is calm (most of the time!) funny, loving but also likes his own space which means he fits right in rather than being clingy.. He soon got used to the TV and stairs (which he’d never seen!) Ian provided videos of his training and how he progressed/adapted to being in a home environment. Very pleased with our new family member!"


"Very Highly Recommended

I was looking to make the difficult decision to replace a family pet and working dog that we had lost and after loads of research found a Cocker that Ian was selling.

The whole process was an absolute delight and the support and advice from Ian has been first rate.

We are absolutely delighted with our new family member and from buying him to picking him up, Ian continued to send updates and instructional videos for me to continue with training, which were so valuable.

Having visited Brockwell Gundogs and now having a dog from there, it is clear how well looked after Ian's dogs are and how professional and passionate Ian and his team are towards the animals he has.

I have no hesitation in very highly recommending Brockwell Gundogs."
