NOTICE BOARD

CANCELLATION OF TRAINING - AUGUST 2018
All training on our grounds is cancelled for 8th and 9th August 2018 due to the wet conditions

CANCELLATION OF TRAINING - HOT WEATHER POLICY
Please note, training will be cancelled when the forecast temperature is over 36 degrees. Please bear this in mind during the warmer months.

AGILITY PRACTICE
Agility practical sessions will be held at the Club grounds for those Club members already trialing and those Club members who undertook the Beginners’ workshops at the end of last year.

When: Each Thursday evening, whilst we have the interest.
Time:   6.30pm set-up for 7.00pm start. 
(Those people who are not able to make it for set-up must remain for pack-up.)

Remember to bring a crate or a tie-out stake and treats/toys, and have your dog wearing a flat collar without any tags. (No martingale collars or check chains.) Your dog’s nails must be short so he can grip the surface of the equipment properly – clip them if necessary.

Weather conditions: If it is raining reasonably steadily then we are unlikely to train – check your emails, check the web site, or as a last resort call Kevin on 0418 221 260.
