intro to gunshot-looking for property near Tauranga

Hi All,
I'm hoping to find a farm/property/area to do introduction to gunshot with my dog in the BOP region. The closer to Tauranga/Mount the better but willing to travel. I'd ideally do a gun session once a fornight for about 2 months.
If you can help or know someone how may, please let me know.
The dog is safe around stock and has all his jabs.
I have a firearms license and would be using a .22
Cheers
Jim

Find out where your local gun club is and when they are shooting. Drive about a km away or so you can just hear the shooting and slowly walk the dog towards the club chatting to it and giving it a bit of distraction. If the dog shows nervousness distract it with a bumper or walk it away from the club... repeat walking back to club, reassuring the dog that all is ok. It took my dog hour or so until i was at the club and she was watching the targets thinking this is good stuff.
