Based in South West Devon, Danalimatt Gundogs is a small kennel owned and run my myself, Ali Haynes.
Having owned and been involved with dogs for over 30 years, they have been a big part of my life. Growing up with Afghan Hounds, Great Danes, Terriers and German Shepherds.
I have studied canine psychology, behaviour and how dogs learn and assisted at weekly canine obedience classes. All the training and behaviour modification techniques used at the classes are based on kind, modern methods. These methods rely on a scientific understanding of how dogs learn.
Prior to my move to Devon, I founded and launched the West Berkshire Gundog Club, providing outdoor training for enthusiasts of the gundog breeds. The launch was a great success and is now managed by Allan Hender of Wirewolf Gundogs.
All my dogs are very much a part of the family and join in with everyday activities and although I no longer work my dogs in the field, I continue to train them for that discipline.
I breed the occasional litter which go to working, agility and companion homes.
