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 Main 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. 

The Agility section 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 updates.

 

 

Can I still take my dog for a walk?

Yes, you can walk your dog. Each person in the home can go out once a day to exercise, so each person could take the dog for a walk. It’s important for their physical and mental health that they still get a daily walk, and short toilet breaks as necessary. But you will need to follow some simple guidelines:

  • Stay local – don’t go too far from home and only drive if absolutely necessary.
  • Maintain social distance – this means keeping your dog on a lead when around others to ensure you both stay at least two metres from other people and their pets.
  • Remember to take poo bags and dispose of waste as soon as possible.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly before you leave and as soon as you arrive home

This is the current advice from the PDSA
