Please keep an eye on this page as there can sometimes be last minute notices especially if we need to cancel a session at short notice, if we have had a lot of rain for instance. If the weather looks dodgy it is always worth checking this page before setting out.

Training 2021


It is with huge regret that we are having once again to postpone training. We planned to restart on Jan 3rd as you know but with the new tiered restrictions we will not be able to. All our trainers, bar one, live in tier four areas and most of our members do as well, so restarting is not an option.

When things change, and restrictions are relaxed, we will begin training again so please watch this site for more information.

We wish you all a happy and healthy new year and hope 2021 goes back to normal quickly.


The Bog Farm away day was a great success and I think everyone enjoyed themselves. We certainly took home some very tired dogs after they spent the day in the refurbished pond, working with gunfire and searching for dummies lost in the woods and heavy cover. Many thanks to Julie and Pete for letting us use their land.

The South Farm away day was also a great success. South farm has some very big fields but with all the cover we needed. The dogs could work over a big area and didn't seem to find the space to intimidating. We enjoyed scurries, fresh cold game retrieving, long retrieves, rabbit distractions and cover retrieves amongst other exercises. Thanks to Sarah for arranging the venue for us and to all the trainers who set up the tests for us on Saturday.

Broadlands Country Fair

Mandy Sayer and Millie had a good day at Broadlands recently. Here are some pictures of Millie competing in a scurry which they led for most of the day. The training at the club really does pay in the end if you practice hard. Well done to Mandy and Millie.
