Fun Day - Sunday 3rd (December 2017)

The Club's training season-ending Fun Day will be held on Sunday 3rd December:

  • 8:15-8:30am - Inspection Line open
  • 8:30-9:00am - Special training classes run for Puppies, RDO, Foundation Class & Classes 1 to 4

It's rumoured Santa will visit the grounds with treats and a photo opportunity for good dogs. And there will be a sausage sizzle and cold drinks for the whole family. However, for insurance purposes, only Club members can take part in the Fun Day Events.

Please note: There will be no grounds fees on the morning, but dogs must go over the Inspection Line as usual (open from 8:15am).


After a well-earned break over December and January, training resumes at the Club on Sunday, 4th February 2018. Our first Sunday back will be a Puppy Joiner for dogs aged under 6 months. Our first Adult Dog Joiner for our Responsible Dog Ownership Course (for dogs 6 months and older) will be on the following Sunday, 11th February. Full details will be available shortly on the Club website.

The Club looks forward to welcoming our members, their family and friends, AND dogs to the Fun Day. And beyond this, wishes all a safe and happy festive and summer holidays break.
