Officially confirmed as one of North Yorkshire friendly faces, Jack Peckitt and his wife Anna live near Ampleforth with their Cuckavalda Gundogs . On the edge of the North Yorks Moors National Park, the Heart of North Yorkshire .This is a rare and wonderful place to for dogs to live and train. With some of the best shooting in the country on our doorstep. You will find Jack and his team of top quality gundogs out working during the season. Usually up at Rievaulx on the Birketts shoot named one of the best partridge shoots in the UK. In 2017/18 did 107 days picking up.
We pride ourselves on breeding easy-to-train labradors and cocker spaniels from quality healthy FTCH lines. We produce not only first class trialling standard gundogs and working dogs but ones that can be family pets too. All are reliable, honest and easy to handle. We offer life time back up. Our dogs regularly go out on the shoots. It is a pleasure to watch them working.
Jack says “Cuckavalda Gundogs and I are part of the chain which brings the finest birds in North Yorkshire on to the plates over diners all over the country”. Jack enjoys good food and drink too. He is lucky to start his day with an award winning breakfast, at home, at Carr House Farm Bed and Breakfast. After his days on the shoot he likes nothing more than to enjoy a few pints of Yorkshire beer thanks to Tetley’s at the Fairfax Arms in Gilling East or at the White Swan in Ampleforth.
