August Competition Night

Dog on perfect beach!

Just a little note to let you all know that Competition Night will be on, on Tuesday 5th August. Normally, owing to holidays and various competitions there are no training sessions during August but due to popular demand it has been decided that the August Competition Night will go ahead!

Gorsgoch Display Day, Sat 16th Aug 2014

Gorsgoch Display Day, 16th August 14

Jo assures me that she has booked some kinder weather for this year’s display day at the Gorsgoch Agricultural Show! So, if you’re not already competing at Builth the same day*, why not come along and show off your skills or use the day as a perfect opportunity to practise outdoors without the pressure of a competition?!

Report: Physio Day with Gillian Barrett!

Gillian’s annual canine physio day was well attended once again, with 15 dogs and their handlers taking part. The popularity of this training session seems to reflect how much more of an understanding and emphasis handlers are now placing on a good warm up and cool down routine for their sport, particularly in agility.

Beginner’s Agility – register now for next course

Our current 6-week beginner’s agility course began last night, 11th March; this course is now full. However, registrations are now open for the next 6-week beginner’s course which begins on Tuesday 13th May 2014. Please see the Events page for details. Register now to avoid disappointment! If you would like further information about our training courses, please contact us.

Reorganisation of training and course booking

Tuesday nights are still Cantref Gwaelod nights! As you may know the club is reorganising the way training is conducted and how payments are managed. We are doing this for two reasons: Ensuring continuity and progression of instruction and therefore better and quicker learning for both dogs and their handlers, and; Easing financial pressures on the club.

Very Merry Waggy Christmas!
