TRAINING FOR THE SHOW RING
Our Training programme provides for all the aspects involved in showing your dog. Our aim is to give you and your dog help and guidance in the many aspects of dog showing.
Weekly training is held every Wednesday from 7.30pm to 8.45pm and a Match night is held on the third Wednesday of each month.
See Subscriptions and Costs page for current annual subscriptions and training charges.
Puppies, after vaccinations are complete, are encouraged to take part and those up to four months have their own 'Puppy Walk' class on Match Night.
The judges for the Match nights are independent and will give an unbiased opinion of the exhibitors dogs.
