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.


Around 30 members attended our AGM this year and learnt of the plans for 2024.

The major change is that the training fees are to increase to £7.00 per session from the next training day which is the first Sunday in March. If you can bring the correct money it will make Pam very happy.

The reason for the increase is that the ground rent has gone up and we need to try to cover this with training fees, I hope you will agree it is still good value.

Annual membership fees will remain the same at £10 for single or £15 for dual membership when there are two trainers and/or dogs.

Awards were given for acheivements by dogs and handlers.

Training 2024

We have a lot of people contact us wishing to join us with their dogs, we have a list of these potential new members and will be inviting you all to join us on a first come first served bases. Please wait until we contact you and don't just turn up as we have a limited number of trainers and we try to control class sizes as much as we can to ensure you get the attention you need.

There are lots of things that you can do before your turn comes which will help you to get off to a flying start when you come to your first training class. Things like sit, stay and come can be achieved in the smallest space (even indoors if necessary) and, if you don't overdo it, it is never to soon to start your puppy on the basics. Just try simple commands two or three times, don't get cross if the dog fails, be consistent with your commands and give loads of praise or a small treat when they get it right. You will be surprised how quickly a young dog gets it.


We are looking at away days and will hopefully have some dates soon. For those of you who have not been on an away day, we try and arrange to visit a different location two or three times during the year where the dogs get to try out different ground and cover etc. to make their training a little more interesting, and give them a different area to work. Away days are always great fun and you get a chance to chat to other members who you may not have met during regular sessions. We try to arrange these on non regular Sundays and dogs and handlers usually go home tired and wet!
