Our Aim ....

 

..... is simply to train most dog breeds and their owners for the task in hand ....

   

 

We give dogs time we can spare, space we can spare and love we can spare.
And in return, dogs give us their all. It's the best deal man has ever made.
- M. Acklam
 

 

 

Personal Profile

 

Derek Summers started professional training of dogs over 20yrs ago and has been breeding English Springer Spaniels since 1990. Has studied basic Canine Psychology and over the years, substantial work has been undertaken involving problematic dogs with various rescue kennels and private owners.

 

The 'specialist area' of this work has become not only canine obedience but also dealing with and retraining canine aggression. It is a strong belief that, in the main, "aggressive dogs" are made rather than born - especially in breeds such as Spaniels. During this time with dogs he operated a successful Boarding & Training Kennels for 12yrs. Selling the kennels in 2003 and commencing full-time dog training Derek Summers is a Member of The British Institute of Professional Dog Trainers, and a Member of The Kennel Club Assured Breeders Scheme.

 

 

Verstone Profile

 

Currently trading under the company name Velvetice Ltd, Verstone Gundogs has been established to not only train all breeds of dogs, but to breed and train Spaniels with a steadiness and reliability of temperament. Puppies are bred with the purpose of being strong powerful motivated working dogs or that 'special' pet & constant companion by the fireside

 VERSTONE: Our KC Kennel Name / Affix

 

Derek Summers has been both working & breeding English Springer Spaniels since 1990 under the Kennel Club Affix VERSTONE  

All our dogs and bitches are chosen and raised for their temperament, intelligence and pliability - the use of gentle, modern motivational methods based on guidance & psychology - when combined both are a very successful and also an agreeable formula to use.

 

VERSTONE bred Spaniels are now well established in several countries worldwide, they are known for their intelligence, speed and above all - their superb temperament, which enables them to be both excellent working dogs and pets in the home. All ESS & Cocker pups are homed from the minimum age of eight weeks and are Kennel Club Registered, Veterinary docked and dew-clawed as per The Docking of Working Dogs Tails Act 2007.
