Due to the extreme temperatures of the past couple of weekends, and the possibility of further heat waves during the remaining months of summer and into early autumn, the Club has decided start and end times for our Adult Dogs Responsible Dog Ownership (RDO) Course and Puppy Classes will be brought forward an hour earlier than usual.

The new registration and training times, along with the times from the end of daylight saving till Club's last week of training for the year, are listed in the Training Times page on the Club website

Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the scheduled starts to ensure you have plenty of time for registration, inspection and training - give your dog and you time to settle before training, so that you both get the most out of the class.

And please remember to provide your puppies and dogs access to clean, cool water during the hot weather - for a drink, or a dunk!
