The Club is running a 10 week Course starting Monday, 28th May for £30.  All profits go to our charities for the year.  Flyball is fun and the dogs usually learn it quickly.  We have competitions during the Course which is run at Dedisham Manor Farm in an enclosed outdoor Riding School.  A perfect venue.  We usually run for about an hour each evening and run a Top Dog Competition on the last night for the Robin Roffey Cup  which is presented at the AGM..This year we are running a Flyball taster evening at 7 pm on Monday 14th May at the venue.  If you are interested, please contact Graham to book your place.




You can now pay your course fees and membership subscriptions online.

Congratulations to Sophie Fry who has won into Grade 5 in Agility. This was achieved at the Kelluki Agility Show at Merrist Wood on 20th January. Well done Sophie.



Well done to our club members who managed to compete at Crufts, including Katie Dalrymple with Wizz who achieved a 5th in YKC Agility Dog of the Year and 4th in under 18 jumping.  Both lovely clear rounds, but were beaten on time.  Emily Moores (who is only 10 years old) handling in the YKC show ring achieved two 2nd’s for other owners... not even her own dog. How good is that! Carly Turner achieved a 3rd in the open class while showing her Shih-tzu Dennis in the show ring. 

A special well done should also go to 14 year old Lauren Ashby (who was diagnosed in January 2017 with Hodgkins Lymphoma Stage 3), who won the Crufts Braveheart of the Year and went on to win the YKC Young Person of the Year Award 2018.

Well done everyone.



On 11 February BDTC held their annual friendly agility competition against Rother Valley. Congratulations must go to the Billingshurst competitors for the excellent result of 38 (BDTC) to 25 (Rother). Well done to all of you, and thanks to all those who helped out
