Beat the Virus

In view of the Kennel Club strongly recommending all dog activities cease until the end of June, the Obedience & Agility Section is closed until further notice.  The situation will be reviewed as things develop. 

The Management Committee have taken the decision to cancel both Agility and Obedience Shows. It was felt that the situation was very uncertain, and that the safety of our Members and  Competitors could not be put at risk.  It is extremely unlikely the virus will be gone at the time of the Shows. 

We have also cancelled the demonstration at the Bignor Village Fete on 14th June.

Members who have paid course fees are asked to carry these over until we re-start.  The Club is paying a retaining fee to both venues to ensure we keep our bookings whilst we are closed.

It is proposed we use the Noticeboard! to encourage our Members to continue with some home training with their dogs.  It is a good time to  get together with our dogs to give us all some sort of normality.

We need to interact with our Members with information, some home exercises,  and perhaps dog type quizzes. 

Please keep your eyes open on the Noticeboard! for the next update in the near future.

Your Running Order is different from your Competitor number.  The Running Order tells you what number you are supposed to run in your classes.  You do not have to do this rigidly but you must appear within a reasonable time indicated by your Running Order which is usually indicated by the Ring Party Caller.  You have to run in order in Championship events or you lose your turn.  If doing a Ring Party you can run at any time that suits you.

Battersea Dogs Home & Pets as Therapy (PAT).
