Professional gundog training centre at Riddell Estate in the Ale Water Valley, Scottish Borders.

Welcome to Sealpin Gundogs. We produce trained and part-trained Labradors, Springers and Cocker Spaniels for clients around the UK and across the world. We run individual and group training sessions for clients, offer a stud service across the three breeds and take client's dogs in for residential training by arrangement.

The kennels are run by Joe Hipwell who is carrying on the business from his grandfather Edward Martin. Edward and Elizabeth are enjoying their retirement at Lanton Hill Farm and can be contacted at

We offer gundog training breaks and holidays on Riddell Estate in the beautiful Scottish Borders. We have both bed and breakfast and self-catering accommodation available right here on the farm, ideal for a holiday training your gundog with Joe.

Joe is a member of the Scottish Gundog Team, has won several trials and tests and regularly demonstrates with his Sealpin dogs at the Scottish Game Fair, the Royal Highland Show and other events across the UK.
